No Facebook, grupo mostra como a boneca seria careca
Um grupo de pessoas tem feito uma campanha para que a boneca Barbie perca seus longos cabelos dourados. Eles querem que a boneca, que sempre incorporou tendências e profissões, passe a ser uma paciente com câncer e mostre o quão bonita ela ainda pode ser careca.
A campanha "Barbie bonita e careca! Vamos ver se conseguimos produzi-la" chegou ao Facebook há poucos dias e já reúne mais de 125 mil fãs que apoiam a versão da Barbie.
A ideia é que a boneca possa ser também um símbolo da luta contra o câncer e ajude pessoas que sofrem ao perder o cabelo durante o tratamento. Para movimentar a rede, o grupo pede a partir desta quarta-feira (18) que internautas enviem fotos suas, carecas, em apoio.
Segundo o jornal USA Today, a campanha foi criada pelas amigas Rebecca Sypin e Jane Bingham, que foram afetadas por um câncer. Através da página na rede sociail, é possível assinar uma petição online para enviar à Mattel, fabricante da boneca.A empresa, porém, respondeu através de uma carta que não aceia ideia de fontes externas, diz o USA Today

I first saw them when friends I knew started posting pictures on livejournal.
I guess you could say gore is my speciality….gore, disease, infection etc etc.
Horror movies, medical shows and natural textures (tree bark, rust, fungal growths). Also my brother’s bedroom….he keeps an intensive historical record of unwashed dishes and cultivates some amazing mould growth…
I want them to look and cringe…yet at the same time be curiously compelled to squeeze it…rather like a huge pimple. Disgusting yet fascinating.
Fortune and glory! Obviously.
Ohh-- too many to list! Most are on my Deviant art or LJ friends lists though.
Endless fun and endless possibility!
I have no preference in terms of gender, but certainly in terms of resin quality- I love working on fairyland and customhouse resin.
Horror of course!
Pretty much any of the artists I follow on Deviant Art I’d love to collaborate with! But I’ve recently discovered TheMushroomPeddler and her creations-- I think it would be great to do a collab with her.
I guess because it’s so variable- it can involve painting, sculpting, sketching, experiment, burning, sanding, sawing. Whatever mood I’m in- I can always find a way to express it on a doll.
If I’m working on it fulltime —a long weekend maybe.
Both have good points. On your own there is really no limit to the creative design, but collaborating with a client gives an extra challenge to a project. And I like challenge.
So many to mention! But I really enjoyed the exploding teacup Unoa. Inserting the tiny teacup into the faceplate was such fun.
I like to make it as realistic as possible- so I do have a huge amount of reference material on different scar types, skin diseases, open and closed wounds. For instance, if someone asks me for a bun scar —I like to know if is a fire burn, acid burn, carpet burn, steam burn, old burn, new burn etc.
Ha! Always ^__^ I’m constantly thinking of things I’d like to try if I only had time!!
Probably a not-doll zombie creation I did. The doll had to have the arm missing from below the elbow, so I had to create a new ball jointed stump to fit into the upper arm.
I think my techniques have become a lot more varied and adaptable as I’ve continued to experiment- hopefully this won’t change!
It’s nice to all types I think, it gives variety.
As I like to make my commissions as accurate as possible, I always research the type of wound and it’s effect before starting. So when I was asked to do the scars left from botched castration…lets just say I learnt a lot more about castration than I really wanted to know…!
It does—if for instance I come across a new artist that I like, or I learn a new art technique that seems interesting- I’m always eager to transfer the idea from 2-d to 3-d. For example, the other day I was at a Chinese porcelain exhibition- and I thought—“I’m so gonna try that out on a doll!” I was really happy with the end result!
I’ve never refused a commission. If I get a request for something that I think could be impossible- I like to try to work through possibilities with the customer and get a compromise before simply refusing.
Doing delicate and pretty faces. One day I’d like to do something subtle…but I always get too excited!
It’s always nice to hear feedback.
MnFs are always great to work on, but I’m happy to try anything.
Not really, I don’t find that the gender of the doll makes much of a difference when I’m doing custom work.
I did art in high school- and digital illustration at uni, but not much sculpture or painting.
I never had many dolls when I was a kid, but I suppose I was always into creative stuff.
I spent hours creating my own original characters for stories and comics and so forth on paper—but it wasn’t until I discovered BJD’s that I really got into customization work.
The general face shape-- the height of the cheekbones, depth of the eyes, etc. It all affects how the shading and blushing can be applied.General shape, hollows brows etc
It’s all in the eyebrows. Even the most femine girly face sculpt will look masculine if it has serious manbrows, and the same for manly sculpts with delicate, plucked eyebrows.
Usually about a week if I’m doing it between uni hours and such. If its in the holidays and I can work on it solidly, then it gets done faster of course. If it’s a major full body job- then it can take longer.
If you’re planning on customising—super fine sandpaper (a selection between 1000 to 2000 grit), Apoxie Sculpt or Milliput and a sharp scalpel or craft knife and are essential.
I do a lot of digital art. I love working with vectors!
I got my first BJD in January 2005. I got him blank and proceeded to fill in his eye socket and scar him up the day after he arrived.
Anything and everything!
1. Don’t be afraid!!!! Seriously- just go for it, Bjd aren’t nearly as delicate as some people think and as long as you follow basic rules- like don’t use oil based paints/dyes/sprays, and always seal first---you can’t go too far wrong.
2. Practice makes perfect! Just keep trying--even if you want to practice on paper first, it all helps.
