Christie and Nichelle restyled

...aaaand a sudden change of weather...
thoughts about autumn and woodland walks... shawls and boots.

You could see sneak-peaks of this session while I was showing these girls for the first time.
Navy jersay pieces are hand-made. I can't believe how graceful and easy to shoot they are <3

No comments, just photo spam and one more honorary mention of Christies blushes and quality of her hair! <3

My dolls, Nr 109

Today I will celebrate an arrival of a twin sister for my Hawaii Kayla (Fashion Fever 2004) - heather doll with a bob... Here is a seasonal fall entry about her:
Kayla No 56
I love her pensive tanned little face...and since she came nude and with her hair chopped I was delighted to see dirty poor thing on e-bay in her original lovely and stylish garment, which will change my doll's wardrobe forever:)))
Tottaly unplanned purchase, there have been a little bit of battle for her, and customer was slightly confused getting 10 pounds for an old doll...I got from him another Asha doll who looked particularly dark on pictures but turned out to be rather regular and damaged (still managed to re-sale her internationally)...

here they are on arrival:
poor things!
Kayla still with elastic on her necklace and Asha...
oh dear...
she's been wearing some genuine Mattel nightgown/summer white..

..and here is Kayla
 shockingly with her fancy, designer wedged sandals... very well done Mattel - 3-piece shoe for a playline doll (they are a bit of a nightmare to use tho;-)
Poor Kayla spent quite some time in a 'waiting'. Her hair were more challenging to refresh...took three stages, lots of soaking and hot water interventions...but now they are practically shiny and like new (except of fringe which disappeared slightly...)

Here she is tangled but ready for a swim with pile of summer laundry;-)
(this photo is historically inaccurate as it shows pieces purchases later than the described doll)

anyway, after 3 days off soaking and hysterical brushing she emerged ready for her photoshoot in original outfit (did i mentioned shoes are pain in the vinyl ass, arrgghhh). I added pink sunglasses, substitute of summer bag (Madame Alexanders) and Bratz water for refreshment...

 belly buton body was made for this outfit <3

 in very holiday mood:-)
 oh this fringe needs some more work obviously...
..and a dolly with a dolly (from Lego Elves series)

I love her! so sunny and fruity.
Expect sisters' session in near or far future then...

Oh dear - My dolls nr 106 & 107-108

Do you think I had a little bit of an overload and should make a decision of not buying or saving any more dolls, right.
Well I did, and imediately what my beautiful eyes see one eBay, sooooo 90's Superstar Barbies...and another one from the same seller with a red lips (score!) and truly tasteful gown...

I basicly didn't meant to win them as auction ended in the middle of my Thursday floristry course...yet I grabbed my phone on lunchbreak and there there...both auctions won...again messy hair, no description,,.

and what am I finding in the box... one doll with pink TRIANGLE earrings and other with out of this world peachy orange PALM tree earrings...

 So just like that I got my hands not only on three Disney doll dresses/pyjamas more likely but also on one and only Totally Tangled Hair Barbie 1992 and Glitter Hair Barbie 1994.

What a fun ride and a history lesson... Totaly Hair (which I do not remember from shops somewhat) line consisted of blond Barbie B, Brunette Barbie, Whitney/Steffi doll, Christie (stay still me heart) and Ken... oh and two Skippers LOL here is what internet has to say

 oh dear...
and here is my girl (Made in China) with rather crispy hair before a proper spa and :

Then, the Palm Earrings Glitter Hair Barbie of mine... mint green make-up, peachy orange lips - what a treat! She is part of a colorful group as well - three Superstars: Blonde, Ginger and Brunette... oh dear, and Christie too...
 like yeah, I am sure getting a new doll with amazing hair and cover it with glitter, what?

And here she is in her Disney apparel...

so unusual /yet I have a bit hard time not-hating their fringes;-)

The third doll is unidentified so far, but somewhere in 1994 and denim/disney spectrum with her red lips and simple eye make-up.

Her hair are absolutely fabulous, heavy, soft and super shiny!
Very powerful face in amazing dress - probably handmade but partially lined and fabric seems to be 60 vintage brocade...

I freed her from her gown and let her join the jolly Disnay club before i'll decide what to do with the all to make them mine:-)

p.s. she is quite obviously a Bay Watch Barbie 1994... 

and a quick, mini group session, enjoy!
