Bratz shoes for Obitsu using pegs

I had a few bratz bait bodies around so gave this a try and it worked very well!

My first tries weren’t too good : one peg was too short, the next was too thin and fell out but it gave me the right mesurement to try again.

A bratz leg is made of a hard plastic “bone” and soft vinyl “flesh”. The vinyl is not easy to saw, I recommend using a knife for that part.

* Saw off the bottom of a Bratz’s legs (approx 1 inch including peg)
* Yank out the pegs from the vinyl
* Saw down the pegs to make it fit into the obitsu (keep checking until it fits *tightly*). You might have to do this on two sides (side and back)
* Put on Bratz shoes, pick up your doll and balance her until she stands up straight and unaided.

I even shook the desk to try and see if she’d fall but she’s stood firmly!
Her balance is actually more solid than in her big brown Myscene boots.

I collect Bratz :heart2: and keep a bunch of flat-soled no-flesh showing shoes around for a good balance (I display them all standing on their own) and easy swapping amongst different skin coloured dolls.
Nina now has a nice new choice of shoes to wear (mainly sneakers and slippers if she is to stand on her own).

Colour match between Obitsu whitetone or fleshtone and Bratz caucasian/asian tone or super pale/goth tone:

Note: Standing alone in some of the Bratz heels is possible but your doll could fall over because the heels tend to bend :
