Takara did some new 'Best of CG' versions of popular earlier releases, one of these was Ash.
I like the sweet smiling face of the rereleased Ash and since these heads can be frequently found on eBay, I bought one.
The eyes on this particular head had mis-aligned pupils but fortunately the pupils were quite small so I used a toothpick and some black Vallejo acrylic paint to widen and center the pupils. Once dry Vallejo paint has a flat finish, so after the paint had dried I carefully rubbed it with a fingertip to make it as glossy as the rest of the eyes.
Ash has a tan that differs from the shade of tan of the v1 bodies and tan v2 bodies are really hard to find.
I was about to buy a tan ZC Eve to combine with this head when I noticed that the nude headless ERTL Turkey Huntress body in my spares box matched the skintone of the Ash head nicely.
So I took the ERTL body, reshaped the neck post, cleaned up all of the seams and sanded the entire body with a grade 1800 (micro-fine) 3M polishing pad to get rid of the glossy finish of the body parts.
I decided not to replace those funny ERTL feet (the joints are tight enough to keep her upright) so I gave her some boots to wear. These feet are perfect for boots, they slip right in !
So there you have it: take a cross-eyed head and a body that was relegated to the spares box, apply a bit of work and TLC and you end up with a gorgeous little brunette.
The jeans are from FemBasix and so are the boots.
The boots used to be white before I painted 'm a leather-like brown (again using Vallejo acrylics and again buffing the paint with a fingertip).
