Fixes I Will Have To Do!

Hey Gang!

The humid weather effect the paint on one of my repaints and another doll's
hair paint will also need repair!

 Zhang and Ryan!
 These rubs/scratches on my doll who is probably less than a year old!
 I love my Ryan repaint and I was sad to find him this way!  I can repaint the eye!
This may be harder that find a other head and repainting the hair, eyebrows and beard.
So I started withn Zhang! I thought he was an easier fix! I used a q-tip to rub
black paint into the area and blend it in and I darkened the whole close cut area.
After that I sealed!


 Zhang turned out well!
Next up is Ryan!  I had to look through my head and body box.  I found another
Ryan head that I repainted like the other!

The old head!




The new repainted head!


While I had the paint out! I want to make a redheaded Chelsea boy! So I took a
brunette and painted him!
 Mattel doesn't do many redheads!
 Close-up!
 He is Ryan's baby brother Roy!
I found him that the head and body box and repainted him too! 
I don't know what I will do with him but here he is!
 He need a little more cleanup. He can be a new character!
 I got an Inferno doll in my travels for $5.00!
I didn't like the painted on pants so I move him to an old Fashionista Ken articulated body!
He will get more play time on this body and  plan to name him Carlos!
I will work out the rest of his story.  It was easy to get the head on this body
and he needs a little more work to get the head on a little lower!

OK, Thanks For Looking!

It Is That Time Of Year!

Hey Gang!

It is that time of year when knock of dolls and doll related item or items that
can be used for dolls start showing up!  So keep your eyes peeled!

BTW,
To keep one's eyes peeled means to be alert, observant. This seems an 
odd phrase, but dates back to the 1820s in Britain, when Sir Robert Peel 
established the first organised police force. The officers were known as '
peelers, or 'bobbies'. They were expected to be particularly observant 
and to keep their eyes 'peeled', after their founder's orders! Of the two 
popular names, only 'bobby' survives.

Disney and Male Characters of African Descent!

Hey Gang,

Disney hasn't done many male characters of African descent! So when you see
one, you've got to get him!

Today I found Frozen 2 Mattias!


There is a lot hoopla about this character!

 From the movie
You can read here the timeline of leaks!

 I am not a fan of painted clothes(pants) on stiff bodies!
I got an AA Texas Cheerleader body for this guy but I think he will have to
share!
Frozen 2 Mattias rebodied on to AA Texas Cheerleader
He needs some gray at the temples or maybe in the beard!
So  this is Stringer Sterling!
My older ladies are excited!

OK, Thanks For Looking!
