My Dolls, No.132

Yet another bargain I could not resist...
This is obviously yet another annoying Mattel/Disney very commercial collaboration based on real people and teenage stars...

All I know about High School Musical is what I've learnt from South Park guys, so to speak... it must be very annoying... do neo-post Beverly Hills...



just look at this picture - three heterosexual couples, caucasian, latino, black/mixed race;-) not the most subtle stitching... people in their 20s playing teenagers, grrrrrr


I am additionally annoyed by the fact that Gabriela doll is just everywhere I look bringing me countless disappointments being usually the only tanned brunette of the bunch...
Also - thay have hobbit / petite bodies and not proportional heads with very artificial / mature looking faces... not cool...


well..except of this one in far right... her face-sculpt is based on Desire/Artsy mold I believe and is nicely convincing in this editon. Make-up and hair on this one are very cool...

She was a present for myself for my sons 6th birthday in January;-)



Just look at her! So much potential (and dust)...
she also has two-toned hair in original hairdo and vintage stylised earrings - 
not fab but I can see them on some 60's barbie ooak;-)
She came with two pairs of shoes and 3 sets of clothes. She is missing few original but the wonderful green cropped cardigan stolen from Hanna Montana will definitely do:-))

and the coolest sporty flats ever...
...I'm thinking about giving her regular body..or shooting first with Flavas and Petite...

***
Update. I could not stand her proportions. Petite bodies do not inspire me at all.
I 'upgraded' her transferring on to recent Fashionista Body (Goddes set) but now I am considering even going with MtM - just look ow good and vivid her face actually is!

I kept 'vintage' hair styling so far, really suits her!

***
My one-eye-open 'research' brings me to conclusion that there have been /at least/ three editions of these dolls - one every season... casual one, 2nd prob and 3rd graduation...at least...

Here are three different Taylors - mine is from playset with a rather handsome, yet sadly 'colour coordinated', boyfriend (Chad):

My dolls. No.131

The first doll from my headhunters stash to enjoy new body was 2015 Fashionista - 
'Donut top' Skipper.


I think I will call her Donatella, which doesn't make much sense with her auburn hair...
She is very well done proper ginger with nice brown eyelashes, lovely gray-teal eyes and pale pink lips, which, I guess, I will forgive her this one time... She got quite an interesting body - articulated knees and one bend elbow...

 This is a lovely mold which photographs really well...
Since suddenly all grown up she hopped into some pink underwear...




Couldn't wait to give her some proper clothes...
here is an exertion from session with Chelsie:


she actually has two-tonne hair <3

**  **  **
p.s. here she is rocking the internet as a custom - repainted and with shortened hair. Interesting!

My Dolls. No. 130

This one is better than I thought... just after I put a doll-ban on myself classics started to fall from teh sky... One Sunday, when shop was closed I saw unusual lots and lots of dressed fashion dolls sitting in widow display. I came next morning while kids were in schools to check what they have. They weren't super cheap for charity shop - 3 pounds I guess...but I have found one I had no doubts about...

My second Generation Girl!


I easily identified my doll - fab burgundy/chesnut locks and new mold. Surprisingly she kept her original jewelry and leftovers of elastic... even her clothes, genuine but not stock ones, were in her colours..

Welcome Chelsie Peterson... purple loving hippie girl:-)
definitely my kind of girl
(my portable disc got mad around that time and my 'on arrival' pics went funny)
 

   she has a smaller, Teen Skipper, type of body, 
with bendable elbow and pretty, ballerina like, palms...

Here she is restored, redressed 


and in her new student accommodation (blast from the past vs. feature from the future?)...

***

This is how she looked brand new:

and Dance Party version:

and personification of an English girl with her Aussie friend (Tori).

 I feel tempted to give her adult body, but her ring, and stuff...

This is all a really big deal and serious stuff... Possibly the best line ever, tasteful, contemporary, thought through characters with their personal styles... geeky Christie, sporty Tori and introduction of fabulous face-sculpt of artsy Ana / Lara (that's why!). As students on International High School they had hand-out space to buy separately and each doll has been sold with folded box-room of their own...
