Bootsale 28.08.

Just for a record.
On 28th of August 2017, while alone, with kids at grandparent I had a chance to attend my fave bootsale. It has been unbpredictale just as usual...

I have got several items but mainly for resale - except the iconic and ost favourite up to this day frilly shirt:-)

I got Disney store Elsa stil wearing her shoes and nearly complete first wave fashionista Barbie...


 

They both have found new, loving homes rather soon.


The odd porcelain/mid century doll took longer but it was fub to have her for a while.
Thought I can borrow her clothes or metam paoited glasses but with a closer look it all turned out to be rather poorly made and for display not play.
Alythough basing on traditional porcelain doll mode and structure she has been styled abd some nod /60s character i psychodelic canary yellow throusers and what not...




Cute face... but hair rather random...
and poor boob job...


oh well, all in all a bit funny-sad... 


Next I accidettaly entered the world of Strawberry Shortcake chick an 
d her friends.... so many editions sooo confusing...

 These are some cutiepies... and i ove their's little gardener casual clothes....
and I definitely have a thing for non-caucasian dols, ah!

 a very interesting and cute phenomenon but luckly not y scale and I have ni memories whatsoever!




mine are made by Bendai in 2002

last but not least I got therse fancy two sided storage boxes 1£ each for my suddeny growung cllection of accessories and diorama miniatures full of pre-made paper flower preps....

Hasbro Sindies

Today a little sentimental journey... inspired by a poor Marmaid Sindy I have got with one of the smelly Barbie bundles...

She usd to have hollow floating rubber tail and a flastic flower srown shoved in the middle of her doll skull...but I got charmed with her siple and natural no-malke-up look... I played with a little with her eye colour only to decide to accept the chellange of the reroot (using dark blond china doll wig).


I was tepmpted to give her Ariel Alpaka one, but no - let's make it more difficult...


her head i ssoooo hard, glued and lack holes...and I couldn't remove the old roots
 ...and I basically have no tools as of yet...
bloody hell.. I got this far but had tabandon her for few mpnths after that...



love this ashy hazelnut colour on her



Something tells me I can't handle much more of this and she is desitned for undercut...

Anyway all this Sindy handling reminded me that I actualy own two quite unique, brunette versions...
Here they are in a simple shared session, redressed

DreamHouse no more

As usual when I make a conscius decission and effor to avoid new dolls a despicable charity shoo situation occures... like on this afternoon spent with my daughter off-nursery... casually strolling through smelly local charity...and bam!
I think I see THE BOOTs I always wanted.... but wait... its not just randomly dressed abandoned doll... actualy wait, two of them! Semi legendary Glam Look Fashionistas from the Barbie Dream House era... in like fuuulllll set of clothes and most of accessories still attached wth elastics... some of these are truly legendary...
...like what is wrong with nowadays children and consumption patterns!

all of this mine for 2.50 each!
I have been super tuff tho and have just stollen their bodies and resod heads;-)


 silly dolls in fab clothes <3
  

 oh eyes and this necklace!


Kept my bootsale Teresa untouched however and learnt to likre her mold actually
 (when not gliterry and sporty)


...and the shoes of a decade!

..here is the-other-new-Teresa resurected at spa!
Dressed down and pink lips turned into trendy orange-red...
