wasn't really sure where the best place to put this was so i thought with the spam board i can't go wrong. are that many people interested in cosplay dolls? or dolls for cosplay use?

i just got a ton of kelly's that i plan to repaint, reroot hair, restyle hair, and make outfits to look like characters. (mostly female since i only have one tommy at the moment) and i was just wandering if people might be interested in doing the same or maybe purchasing such things at a con or from the net.

also if poeple were interested in buying such things would they want a box (even if it has nothing to do with what the doll is now) for it to be transported or sold or carried in?

please and thank you for all responses. and for anyone who does make cosplay dolls, any suggestions for if i choose to sell them, what characters i might do that would be popular or most liked? i only want to make a handful for myself and i don't want to waste a bunch of perfectly good dolls.

ok so i got a first request from a friend. :) battle angel alita. she will be made from a lorena from the color series. :) she's the purple crayon.

If I saw how they turned out I may be interested, I've done that before. :'3

thanks so much for your guys input and encouargement. i've only ever done restoration work on barbie like dolls before so this i hope will be fun and not nearly as gut wrenching as working on my bjd's since they are cheaper dolls. plus since they are so small it's good practice for my tiny bjd. :)

ok so does anyone have any ideas of characters they would like to see as kelly's? i'm working on alita now, http://i13.photobucket.com/albums/a300/tsukiana/kelly%20progresses/Picture80.jpg

those are some in progress pics of her. she is drying at the moment. and her lips are gone. once i have some better tools i will remove her eyebrows.

and i got requests for ed from several friends. (cowboy bebop.) and kisa and tohru from fruba. any other suggestions? i have like (counts) 17 kelly's other than alita. and my two tommy's (i miss counted) which will be my soultaker boys. and one kelly will be a maya. :) so i need a total of 16 female characters to represent in the form of a kelly doll.
