Today I have some Barbie goodness. You are all going to LOVE them!
First, remember the picture of Daring Charming I was talking about when I created that post on him? (The one with my darling boy playing with him?) I found the picture. It was just so comical, he looks like a fallen King with his crown falling off. Hysterical!
Before I feature my NIB dolls, I rescued a couple from the thrift store. They had a LOT of dolls there but nothing really caught my eye. All were naked, newer body style. If they were old then yes, I would have snatched them right up. Some had chewed hands from pets. I have enough of those already. But these two really needed a good home so I picked them up. They have been bathed because my Captain Tornado wanted to give them kisses so I had to clean them up.
I love this one's hair! Purple streaks! And she was just an all around pretty doll.
Believe me, her hair did not look this good. She had frizz frizz frizz and so many tangles I had a hard time getting them out. Because of that she got a boil dip last night. It's better but still not where I want it. It will take more work.
The capris, do they really belong to her or to someone else?
Because of the pink, I didn't mind that she had a permanent swimsuit. I knew that I had a doll with that same necklace.
So I washed her and the pink washed right out so I figured it was marker. Then I looked again and the pink was still there. Maybe I was looking at a different part of the hair when I didn't see it. No biggie, I can take a pink sharpie and give her some awesome streaks to match.
Then as I was brushing her hair the pink was reappearing. So I stuck her head under icy water. Yep, turned pink. Then it hit me like a ton of bricks.
Remember that I have this Merliah doll.
Her hair changes to pink as well but for some reason, the Princess Merliah I just got, her tattoo didn't appear. Oh well. I still love the hair.
Okay, now on to the NIB additions! My dad picked these ones up for me. So awesome!
