I love this question because it’s something I am always thinking of. Thinking of the ‘what I have to do next to finish my doll’ and as much as I chip away at my list it tends to grow just as quick. I love the realism in this hobby and so constantly look for finishing touches that can help with this. I went from synthetic wigs to mohair which I dye and make myself. For me this can take around two weeks due to my full time job and training on the side. But well well worth it, just sucks when you want them to have another styled wig as that’s another two weeks XD I make 99% of their clothes (sometimes it’s nice to buy things rather than make it if its something special ) but as soon as I’m finished I need (emphasis on the need) to make something else and so their wardrobes are never finished. Though I love to sew so I can’t complain. Due to a friend inspiring me to try I do my faceups now too and as I've been practicing for the past few months have been improving immensely. I’m currently re-doing two doll’s faces and intend to do more as I can improve the pre-existing ones. So it’s the cycle of when I get better and doing something I want to redo it and therefore my dolls are never complete. I know I will eventually finish my dolls, but that will be a long process which I am patient for because i have so much fun building up to is and when I get there I like to think my skills have come so far from when I first started. But my worst enemy is time! If I had more my dolls would be so much closer to being finished.
