I have someone very special and dear to me for today.
So happy to have her, so glad I have this little big hobby and that i am a collector in a closet no more;-)
She is one of the last from my Stockholm lot / loot. At that time I was still like ..= meeeh 'I have doll with this mold', 'meeeh glittery mermaid - who cares'...but at the back of my mind someone was chanting 'super long purple hair!' and 'you can always rebody her! People do it all the time';-)
I'm so happy I saw beyong these candy pink lips, sparkly rubber and peeling marmaid tail (quite natural looking tho and nicely articulated) and a chewed hand! She is more like 'mixed race' than black but I am not picky you know (purple hair!).
After blue-haired Teresa she is my best restoration so far... just look at this poor thing (wicker basket again, sorry):
here she is in her element, sort of and with wet hair waiting to dry naturally...
not bad at all - here in comparison with Hairtastic Barbie which I got new in a box.
I couldn't resist as you can guess:
here a little study of glittery part (easy to ignore on this one tho)
so dreamy and... ooppsieee
so happy these vintage dresses lived long enough to do this;-)
lasty - here she is in a box and with hair not less colourful friends (Lea, I know...):
