Announcement   Chrysalis is a metaphor for transition, and that's certainly the word that can be used for my creative pursuits! I am always finding things that I love to work on, and my chip reflects that. Currently, that means repainted dolls and beaded bracelets, though other thoughts and ideas are always waiting to be brought to life through my two hands.

What are Doll Repaints? Have you ever looked at a doll and hoped or wondered what it would look like if it was this way, or that way? From beautiful to macabre and everything in between - utilizing quality artists supplies like Prismacolor watercolor pencils and Faber-Castell soft pastels, I loving re-energize fashion dolls into unique and one-of-a-kind (OOAK) works of art. Whether choosing from my prepainted offerings or collaborating on a customization, I'd love for you to take a new piece of work home!

Dolls are offered nude (currently) so that my buyers can have the ultimate in customization for their vision on their dolls. I have some wonderful vendors in my own favorites that create spectacular jewelry, clothing and additional accessories for Monster High and other types of dolls! Please make sure to show them some love.

I am also in the process of expanding offerings to include decoupage pieces and some other ideas I have floating around (clothing, jewelry and perhaps more!). Check back often for new products as I do try to add at least one new offering weekly!

Please make sure to visit me and like my pages for updates, previes and news!

About

Turning fantasies into realities....

Chrysalis Creation was originally started as a means for me to make a little extra money through my various crafty endeavors. It began with polymer clay horns (and those can certainly still be ordered!) and has expanded to include decoupage, beaded bracelets and repainting dolls. The repainting dolls, especially, has become a rather voracious obsession. Chrysalis is, after all, an ever evolving and metamorphosing love affair with creativity.

I am still working on my techniques and streamlining my finished products, but I am quite proud of the dolls I recreate and have gotten to the point where in I feel comfortable offering them to those that may also appreciate the aesthetics and fantasy images I try to bring to 3D still-life.

The repainting process, for me, is quite cathartic and inspiring. Each doll undertakes not only a whole new persona from their original company generated character, but also from the other ‘clones’ as well. They are being recreated after all! The process itself entails removing the dolls original factory paint – how they come when you purchase them in the store – and layering colors upon colors to obtain a new, hopefully softer and certainly more customized personality.

I utilize quality Faber-Castell pastels, Prismacolor and Faber-Castell watercolor pencils and sealants in my work and generally offer the dolls nude so that the owners can customize their clothing to how they see their new addition. Clothes are potentially on the horizon, but not an undertaking that I’ve had time for just yet!

All of the dolls also have their hair washed and conditioned and in some cases restyled.

All dolls can be found on my Etsy shop, but my works in progress can also be previewed on my Facebook page. I also have access through Pinterest, DeviantArt and Twitter. I can also be emailed should you have any direct questions. Followers are always appreciated and I try to follow back when possible.

As for me personally; I’m a thirtysomething (almost fortysomething) mom, partner, student and full-time office employee who does her best to juggle everything. Most of the time I consider myself to be successful at it. Creativity with me takes a plethora of forms, this being just one of them. Music is my primary inspiration, as is my family and I consider myself to be a ‘recovering goth’ in so much as a dark aesthetic still sings to me more than most. I’m not a fan of horror, oddly enough, but gravitate towards the Victorian, Edwardian and the 1940’s usually. I’m in love with love, and almost always root for the villain. I am a self-proclaimed Disneyphile and have given the mouse more money than I care to ever admit to, and I also have developed a newer obsession with running.

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy Gift Cards and Etsy Credits
  • Other Method
Returns and exchanges
Returns/Exchanges:

Due to the nature of my stock products - returns will not be accepted. There can be no exchanges for dolls. All sales are final. In any situation, you have 3 business days from date of delivery to notify me of any issues, concerns or damage. Failure to notify me within this time frame will be indicative of acceptance of the item(s) as is and no recompense can be issued.

Refunds will be issued in the event that the item was damaged in shipment ONLY, and only once item(s) has been returned to me and has been received. PHOTOS OF THE DAMAGED BOX AND ITEM(S) ARE REQUIRED TO BEGIN THE PROCESS. If additional insurance is not purchased, than refund can only be issued for base pricing of the item. Return shipping is at the cost of the buyer.

In the event that an item shows through tracking to have been delivered, but not received, refunds will not be issued. I will, however, work with you and the post office(s) to see if the item can be located. Neither the post office nor I can be held responsible for items that were delivered to the correct address and turn up missing.

If doll will be going through multiple shipping routes - I.E. shipped to a US address first and then routed through a third party to another address, I am only responsible for the shipment to the address provided on the initial order. Any additional shipping routes the item takes to it's final destination are not the responsibility of Chrysalis Creation and I can not be held accountable for damage/loss during these additional trips. If damage is indicated at delivery to the address on the order, than pictures of the damaged box and item are required at that point. IT IS HIGHLY RECOMMENDED THAT YOU PROVIDE THE FINAL SHIPPING DESTINATION ON YOUR ORDER AND PURCHASE SHIPMENT ACCORDINGLY.

FOR CUSTOM ORDERS ONLY:
The above policies still apply. Returns will be accepted and refunds issued upon the item being received back to me at the buyers expense. I reserve the right to post the doll for general sale should this occur. If doll is kept, than no refund or return will be issued.

IF ORDERING POLYMER HORNS ONLY: Exchanges for similar item (colors and style) will be given to items damaged in shipment only if notified of said damage within 3 business days of receipt of item. Horns are made out of clay and are not unbreakable.

Please message me prior to purchase should you have any questions regarding my policies.
Payment
Payment is preferred through Direct Pay or PayPal within 3 days of commitment to avoid cancellation.

Florida Residents will require a 7% sales tax.
Shipping
Shipping:

Shipping will be via Priority Mail within the United States and Internationally. Shipping charges also include a small packaging/handling fee. Shipping will be happily combined for multiple items purchased - please message me prior to purchase so I can quote appropriately.

Priority Mail includes tracking and insurance for $50.00. SIGNATURE CONFIRMATION IS RECOMMENDED, (at an additional cost) but not included.

All due care will be taken to package and protect the items to the best of my ability for shipment. Items will be shipped within 3 business days of payment being received. ONCE ITEMS HAVE BEEN TURNED OVER TO THE POSTAL SERVICE THEY ARE IN THE SERVICES CARE - I would highly recommend the additional purchase of insurance as once packages are within the postal services control I CAN NOT BE HELD RESPONSIBLE FOR LOSS/DAMAGE INCURRED DURING SHIPMENT but can work with you on shipment damage IF INSURANCE IS INCLUDED. Pictures of both the damaged box AND the damaged items will be required to file a claim. If insurance is not purchased than I can not issue refund. NOTIFICATION OF DAMAGE IS REQUIRED WITHIN 3 BUSINESS DAYS OF DELIVERY DATE FOR CONSIDERATION.

Shipment will be to address provided on order ONLY. There will be no substitutions or corrections of orders once placed. Please be mindful to provide the correct shipping address upon check out.

I can not be held responsible for delays in customs that may arise; nor does tracking completely update in certain circumstances. If seller information is required I will provide that privately.
Additional policies and FAQs
