Introducing Fable



Here she is! My first custom AG doll, Fable. 


Before starting this project I made a promise to myself.  I would not alter or post pictures of my new doll until I had successfully launched my Etsy store, Pip & Twitch. As of May 9th, my store has been open!  I sell prints of my original paintings and paper cut art. Check it out  =]

My original intention was to put Ruthie's wig onto Marie Grace but in the end the combo did not seem just right to me. BUT…. I fell in LOVE with Marie Grace's wig on Ruthie.

I had the idea months ago but was too nervous to take the plunge, make the purchase, and then to actually modify a doll. However once I heard about the potential, impending retirement of these two I decided to get on it.


   


Fable has the classic face mold with light lip coloring and grey eyes. Her hair is a light reddish brown color with blonde highlights only in the top layer of her wig. It reaches down to her hips in soft waves. I also gave her custom, hand-painted freckles which I think suit her beautifully. 




Plus I am AMAZED as to how well MG's hair color matches Ruthie's eyebrows considering how dark Ruthie's hair is in comparison.

  1. She's so pretty! You did a great job, Rebecca. I'm getting an AG doll soon, and am looking at doing a custom for my next doll after her, but not sure yet.

  2. Thank you, Jessica! Customs are a lot of fun to make since they give you the exact combination you want.
    Which doll are thinking you will get?

  4. Wow, she is absolutely BEAUTIFUL! I love her, and I would have never suspected that she was a cross between MG and Ruthie- she doesn't look like it! She is such a unique doll, and I'm sure you'll have such fun doing things with her!
