|Hey guys if any of you have any cool avatars that you can't live without and want to include them in the avatars to pick from. Please post them here and I'll get them put in for you.|
I found a new place to make dollies at that is really cool.
The instructions they give there are a lil confusing though so I'm going to go through it step by step here.
Okay first off you need to have a picture editing thing such as Windows Paint, Paint Shop Pro, Corel Draw, something along those lines.
When you go to the website you will see the different links to choose from start where you want. Now you'll see heads, bodies, clothes, accesories all that sort of stuff. Now here is what you do, pick out your body and head first, now if you see a shirt that has arms on it already that means you don't need to pick out a torso as well you can just use the shirt with arms and then pick out a skirt or some pants with legs. Now you want to get these all organized so here's where you start.
Drag the head and position it near the top of the lil white screen in the middle that way you have room to work, you want to right click on this and you'll see a pop up box with some choices. You want the head to be 5 (top) so that the hair shows. Next drag over the torso or shirt, (right click and give this a 4) then drag over some legs, pants, or a skirt (give this either a 1 or a 2 depending on how you think it looks)
Sometimes you'll want to right click on things before you postion them so that they fit right once you place them. Like sunglasses are a good idea for this, if you want your doll to wear shades click on the sunglasses one their in the white box and then give them a 5, anything that is going to be on top of clothes, arms or head gets a 5 for top.
Now sometimes you'll see wings around there, if you want wings those get a middle rating, as do torso's or bodies.
Once you have played around with your doll and gotten it the way you want, well here comes the harder part. Follow the instructions very carefully. Have your paint or picture editing program on (I use paint) now you want to click the save doll button. Another window should pop up, now minimize this one for a second and let your picture editing program pop up, while this is up pop up the dolly window you minimized so both the dolly and your editing thing are showing. Now you need to hit Alt and the lil button on your keyboard that says Print Scrn (it could say Print Screen or Print Scrn SysRq, that's what mine does) so do Alt, Print Scrn and it copy's the dolly window. Now you need to go under edit and paste and the dolly should show up in your editing program. Now if it's like mine you will see the whole window, including all the options and so fourth you want to get rid of those so you have a white background.
The best way to do that is when you see the jagged lines around the dolly window that has been pasted you need to get those behind so like hold the mouse button down somewhere on the pic and move the dolly till you see white area behind where the dolly paste thing is. Click in that area and the jagged lines should be gone. Once they are you can use your mouse to make little boxes (like when you select text you move the mouse like that but just a bit at a time) on the areas you want to get rid of and do a small section at a time so you don't erase the dolly. Right click and select cut everytime you make a box. Once you have gotten rid of everything but the white background and the doll you need to resize it, to do that you need to get the double arrow thing to show up by moving the cursor to those little kind of box things, move the box in till you see that there is just a bit of white under the shoe area, and a little white on what would be the dolls left hand side (your right). Then you need to rotate the picture by going under image and then flip rotate, if you can flip it 180* and then do the other two sides and then flip it again till it's right side up again then you will be done you are ready to save it.
GO under file, save as, come up with the name for your dolly, and then save it under the gif option (if you have an older version of windows bmp, is fine) if your saving it as gif it will tell you that saving it as gif will change the color, select yes anyway. Now if the skin tone changes (it will as well as the clothes) when you send me the pic either here or in my mail to put up as an avatar tell me what colors you want instead and I will do that for you because I have all those little paint programs to really hook the doll up.
I hope that this works for you and you enjoy it, I've had fun with it I know. And if you have any questions just ask I'll be happy to answer and ask them here because some people might have the same questions and I'll answer them at once.

If I could get my BexGothDolly put on so I could have it as an Avatar would be great.
It's saved as a .bmp though, sorry old paint version.
(HeHe... I've actually been known to dress like that quite often, minus the wings though.)
Thanx for any help in bringing individuality upon me within this board.

|I have a few of Liz and some others I didn't make that were posted on Fan Forum oh back in season 1, I saved cause they looked really cute, but for the life of me I can't remember who made them would it be alright to include them here or since I didn't make them it would be wrong to post?|
Just thought I'd ask.

|Go ahead and post I can put disclaimers here on this thread saying that the dolls weren't made by me and if you want credit or them taken down just ask. Schurry your dolls are awesome. The goth doll will be posted next time I update av's (toomorow) I just have to resize it in my paint program, change it to gif and then it will be up.|

I had a dolly avatar/pic but I made one that I like much better. If it's not too much trouble could you put this one up in the dollies by board members please, so I could use it as mine? Thanks.
