Melissa's MIOs
#1
I am not the greatest artist but I love looking at pictures of customs and I finally decided after watching some YouTube videos to try customizing MIOs. The first MIO kit I got was actually for my friend to do a custom for me but she convinced me that I could also do one myself, and I actually ended up buying 4 more MIO kits for myself (2 are WIP, 1 still untouched in the box for now).

I finished this faceup first but was waiting for my eyechip order to come in from Lullaby for Dolls and they came today, so here's my first finished MIO (no name yet). Her wig is Leeke World LR-078, purchased from Denver Doll which is conveniently 5 minutes away from my work.

Anyway, here she is...

I can add more pictures once there's daylight again, the lighting in my house is so bad. yay

Update: Title change so I can post some new photos.

Thank you all! As someone with very full lips (I was sometimes even made fun of for it), I think I tend to focus on lips, lol.

Congrats on doing your first faceup! It's great that your friend convinced you to try it yourself. Hope you enjoy finishing the rest of them! smile

It's kind of addictive making your own doll.

I am glad you have a friend that encouraged you to take the challenge and do a face up.

You did a wonderful job!

Can't wait to see your others!

I just wish she would tell me her name! I'm making a dress for her and I think I've found her style but she still doesn't have a name.

Her make up's pretty and I like how her warm colored hair, eyebrows, and lips contrast with her shiny, cool colored eyes.

I had to look Delmeza up. I see what you mean.

She is amazing! I LOVE her eyes!!
If I can ever get my hands on a MIO kit that's not too expensive,
I might try it too, though I don't have that much confidence in my face up skills... :/

Since posting Lilly (the name I decided on for my red-headed MIO), I have completed 2 more MIOs plus I just got another yesterday from my friend Merc.

(Since Photobucket doesn't seem to want to honor my image edits, they are L to R: Mandy, Lilly, Katya, Dylan)
Mandy was made by Merc and the others were made by me. All have Leekeworld wigs. Mandy and Lilly have eye chips from Lullaby for Dolls, Katya and Dylan have eye chips from ShortyBoo.

I'm so in love with Mandy! She's fantastic. My crappy cell phone pics do not do her justice, I'll have to find my real camera some time for better pics.
