Hey guys! I made this fashion doll from a basic Tyler Wentworth 16" vinyl fashion doll.



First I had to remove her head and hair. (She originally had long red hair). From there she received a full face paint removal and repaint. I redid her eyes to make her look blind. The involved a 'gloss over' with white and blue. I also removed the horrid red lips and replaced them with a neutral color. Her eyebrows were also removed and repainted. She originally had light red eyebrows. They were repainted in black with a skeptical slant to them. I mean, she is Toph right?



She also received a general darkening of the skin tone to look like dirt. I kept and enhanced the natural blush. Finally, I painted 'dirt' on both the tops and bottoms of her feet. She looks like a true earth bender with dirt all over her. The dirt is really brown/black paint. All paint was sealed with a matte sealer.



Next I created with hand sewing the arm and ankle bands. They are sewn around the arms and feet and therefore cannot be removed. Each arm/foot band is made of the same green fabric as the pants and shirt. A real leather band lays between the yellow ribbon and green fabric. These were hand stitched and have some flaws in stitching.

After that I made the headband. The head band was also hand sewn and is made of matching yellow and green fabrics the outfit is made of. The headband can be tied around her head with leather strips. The headband also has fluffy white balls on each side, to replicate Toph's headband from the show.

The outfit is sewn on a machine and is fully lined. When removed, the outer tunic reveals a top and pants set. The top and outer tunic close with matching snaps.

Her belt is made of fake leather with painted silver dots to simulate metal. The belt ties with leather straps.

Her wig is removable. It is made of black fur and can be styled in multiple ways. The bangs are extra long to simulate Toph's bangs. The back is currently cut to be spiky in the back. I wanted a mix of the younger Toph seen in the show and an older Toph.



Over all, she turned out beautiful and I am very, very proud.

If you are unfamiliar with a Tonner Tyler Doll, you can check out their website here: http://www.tonnerdoll.com/ Each doll retails about $179.99 -- They are not meant to be played with by younger children, but because Robert Tonner believes in the Power of Play, they are made of Vinyl and NOT porcelain. Therefore, Toph can be played with by older children.

If you have any comments or questions, I would love to hear from you! I made her for myself for fun, but because I am working on a few other projects (including Doctor River Song from Doctor Who) I am looking to sell her to a good home. Considering the nude, basic dolls retail about $75 plus all the work into the outfit and accessories, I would like to sell her for about $150-$200. If you are interested or know someone who is interested, please email me at antoinette.schicchi@gmail.com -- I'm willing to negotiate prices, so please just contact me if you are interested.

Thank you so much for looking!!! Please cross post and send to other Avatar Fans. I would love for her to go to a loving home.

"Avatar: The Last Airbender" and all references to it are owned by Nickelodeon, a subsidiary of Viacom. My doll was inspired by the show and is in no way affiliated with Nickelodeon or Viacom.

"Two Sides of the Same Coin"


I signed up for the AU/Fusion challenge over at Groped by an Angel aka, where I spend most of my life.

This took a really long time. Each photo is obviously manipulated, Dean [Arthur] and Castiel [Merlin].

I just have to say....THE HAIR! I couldn't stop laughing at Castiel's hair. Please never let Cas or Dean have hair like that. Demons would stop and laugh at them; they wouldn't even have the heart to beat on them because their hair is so funny. Reminds me of the Buffy quote, "Buffy? Someone has to talk to her people. That name is striking fear in nobody's hearts."

Comments loved :)

Ok, I turn around and its almost October already. I'm going to be 21 on the 24th, and that is honestly scaring the hell out of me. I know that I will finally be able to drink, but its like this is the last major birthday. Actually, here in the US of A...this is THE MAJOR birthday. So, looking forward to it, but scared as hell at the same time.

I finally got my website updated. It took FOREVER for me to get my head out of the sand and sit down and make something.

Actually, I think what really killed my art buzz or creativity was the death of Effulgent. This is going to sound so lame, I REALLY REALLY miss it. It was like my home online. I feel disconnected from my buds and it pains me.

That's my online life. My real life is pissing me off as well. I get upset about everything. If school isn't going right, then my sorority isn't right, if that is fucked up, then I'm annoyed at half my friends. *sigh* I'm going to stop bitching and instead talk about the glory that is Supernatural.

Dear God...Kripke....I love you. Thank you for taking Cas to a whore house. It made my life. Also, the first thing we ever see him eat or drink, is beer. I'm also really glad that he didn't go through with the hooker...he needs to loose it to Dean! Well...that didn't take long for this to become a slash topic.

One of my best friends realized that my life is revolved around 3 S's...... SLASH, SEX, and SUPERNATURAL....and she is right!!

New art! Not much is new. Life sort of sucks, but that's normal. I think I am almost done with my third semester of college. The sorority is driving me crazy. I have even missed the last two episodes of Supernatural, that's how apathetic I have been to life. Fun. My muse came back though! I am especially proud of "Dear Lord, Save my Brother" I hope you like it as well!!

New walls! So, yes, with the new addition of the fantastic character to the Supernatural universe, what do I do? I slash him! haha! Even with out the slashing, Castiel is freaking amazing. Angels kick ass. Over all, life is going well. I am swamped up to my eyeballs with work for my Constitutional and Legal History class; I do not know if I am going to survive it or not. My only saving grace is playing on the computer and trying very hard not to work on it.

I updated my website with a new layout. Feel free to check it out and let me know! As always, I hope you like the new wallpapers. Comments are crack, and I need them. *slaps arm*

So yes, I did a freaking backflip when Castiel was introduced, and what does a good fan girl do? She makes fanart of her new favorite paring! haha. Comments as always are loved! I feed on them.
