130 - TWISTER SISTERS FROZEN COLLECTION
« on: November 18, 2014, 08:51:55 PM »
Ok - my first review!! be gentle...!

The Twister Sisters Frozen Collection - available from http://vimeo.com/channels/twistersister

Price - $5 each or all 7 designs for $25

I have been using Holly's designs off youtube for a long time and was really pleased to see her new downloadable designs become available.

The series consists of:

Snowman doll
Snowman bracelet
Ice Queen doll
Ice Queen Bracelet
Frozen Princess Doll
Frozen Princess bracelet
Reindeer

Holly presents the series in her usual youtube way, explaining bubble sizes and balloon lengths clearly, and I found the models easy to make and very effective - might take me a few days to get all 7 done so please bear with me!

Snowman Doll

A real winner for me. Quick and effective - does use a white quicklink - i used a round with a sidewall bubble which worked just as well.

For me, the head is just great and makes this a real winner

Ice Queen doll

Simple enough  yet effective and do-able in the real world, Holly uses carribean blue for the dress and ivory silk for the hair, not having either, I used pale blue and white

I have wondered if the hair would look better in a 160 - maybe one to try

Holly also uses a snowflake printed 5 inch clear for the queen to hold, I used a clear and drew on snowflakes

Frozen Princess

Similar to the Ice Queen, with different colours. Holly uses mocha brown for the hair, I decided on orange as I think this is what she has in the film. The addition of the pigtails is a nice touch

One point about this one is, is to attach the cape before attaching the head. Blindly following the video, i attached the head and then struggled to get the cape on properly - Holly does mention this, but only near the end

A nice model overall, slightly trickier than the Ice Queen

Reindeer

A variation on the reindeer I currently use, is fairly big and impressive, using a body design which is new to me.

The model goes together well and the final result is very nice, although tough to get a good photo of.

My second favourite after the snowman

This is an interesting set of designs so far. I think I agree that Olaf is my favourite design here but I can see how the others (particularly Elsa and Anna) can be used for quicker work.

We all have our cross to bear, but some of us need more wood than others!

Thanks Stuart

I personally have a quicker Anna and Elsa but not as impressive

Olaf - perfectly do-able in a party situation, particularly with a quicklink, ive had another go at the head tonight without the video and its very quick and easy, going to premiere this at saturdays party :)

Ice Queen Wearable

Essentially the same design as the Ice Queen doll, used as a headband / bracelet, without the dress

Nice design but could be added onto the doll tutorial?

Snowman hairband

A very cute, quick snowman, I like this a lot and can see me using it regularly (once stocked up with white geos)

He uses a head / eye technique that was new to me - very workable for a number of designs, I think i over inflated it a bit, meaning a slightly larger head than Id like.

Holly also explains the artwork well though I feel my effort could be better - i think the eyes need to be slightly larger

i can see this one being very popular, the 7 petal flower base took me the longest!

Frozen princess wearable

As, the Ice Queen wearable, basically the same as the Frozen Princess doll, but used as a bracelet / hairband

This time, Holly attaches the cape first and it is much easier!

I made the mouth too big on this one but left it as it was just a practice!  :D

Summary

A nice set of designs, clear instructions and well worth the £16 investment.

The Olaf (both designs) and reindeer are my favourites, the princesses are lovely as well, if I were to be picky, the wearable princesses could be added onto the doll videos instead of purchasing seperatley as they are basically the same model.

Overall thought - 9/10 - buy it NOW!

I bought this (as well as her princess blossoms series). I just use halves of 260s for the braids instead of 160s. I thinks the 160s make them look too long. Also, for Anna, I used purple instead of the wildberry color for the cape & a geoblossom (navy blue) for the bottom (like she teaches in the princess blossoms series). I only wish Q made geoblossoms in the teal blue color for Elsa's bottom.  

Everyone has loved these as well as the princesses I have made from the princess blossoms series.
