Introducing: Rina (Azone Picco Neemo)

I got this cute little Picco Neemo from Rio99 a few months ago but haven't had the time to sit down and paint her. I've decided to (probably) take her with me on a camping trip I'm going on at the end of the summer since it will be to dangerous to take my BJDs (we're doing a portage trip). But little Rina can fit in my camera bag and is sturdy enough to handle a few bumps and bounces.

Since I've never painted a vinyl doll before, I figured I should carve out some time to make sure I could do her up well enough to take with us. She needed a full face-up and a hair cut.

This isn't her final look, so I didn't bother sealing the final layer, but I did learn a lot. At the end of all of this, Rina is supposed to become Tobi's doll, so while I cut about 2 inches off her hair, it's still got more to go. I'm strongly considering sending her off to someone to be properly painted when I get back. Much as I'm reasonably satisfied with how she came out, I didn't actually enjoy the process very much - though I suppose that could be because Rina's face is the size of my thumb...

Now to make her some clothes!
