Goth up Your Cutie with Beyond the Burtonesque Dolls!

Hello! I am super excited for this post! Why? Well, I am stoked to announce that yours truly is now the "Bad Ass Coordinator" (title given by Betty Boo) for the Beyond the Burtonesque Dolls! I am so excited! We Dolls have some fun, new things happening, so you should definitely check out the BTBD Blog today for more info.

Let me tell you about our newest challenge...this is another reason why I am so excited. I LOVE this challenge! And for the record, this challenge was picked before I got my fabulous new title. ;) We Dolls are challenging you to Goth up a cute image. But! It's gotta be an altered project when all is said and done. So no cards or scrapbook pages. Ya gotta alter something. And go from cute, to goth. Ooooooh! Here's the best part! I hope you like my "project!" I chose to Goth up MY cutie!!!!!

I dressed my little Rhiannon up as Wednesday Addams! And I let her borrow Ice Bat, one of my Ugly Dolls. Wait! Here are some more photos!!!

Doesn't she make the perfect Wednesday???

I love her little braids!

Look at that face! She kept pursing her lips. It was so cute!

Can you tell I had a good time with our little photo shoot? It's hard to tell, but she got a real kick out of it too! She's quite a ham!

I hope you enjoyed my altered child. I may need to do this with Phoenix now! Hahaha! Please be sure to visit the rest of the Dolls to see their gothed up, altered projects. And please, play along! And spread the word! We need some fresh meat! Bwahahahaha!

I also want to remind you that there is a new SBS preview this week. And we post the new images at 9PM EST. So take a peek at my White Queen, in my post before this one. I'll have another preview tonight. Thanks for stopping by. Have a goth kinda day!
