Hey guys! Ok so recently I found an abandoned 1999 Mattel (I'm guessing Barbie doll) in a junk box in my house and decided to fix her up and introduce her to the ever growing community of AGfernfriends dolls :)
As you can see from the above picture she was in a pretty yuck condition. She didn't have any clothes (that's why the black square over her torso if you're wondering :D ) And she had marks all over her body. (Nothing that a little bit of nail polish remover couldn't fix! ;-)
Now the main bit, how did I ever sort out that crazy mess of hair?! Well Adelaide was a weekend project. Firstly I gave her hair a massive wash with shampoo and conditioner then sectioned off very small bits of hair and then wrapped them around toothpicks (Very tedious!) And then boiled her hair, let it dry overnight and then on Monday after school I took out the picks and POW! Her hair was fabulous! :)
I took these pictures just before tea time and the light is super nice (if you're on it's good side, horrible if you're not! ) Adelaide is super awesome but one of her cons is: She can't stand on her own and can be a pain to pose :( But I can get some cool head shots! Her make-up is on point! :D
Her is a weird picture of the back of her hair (LOL sorry about the rusty wagon she's leaning on :P) Every single curl was formed but a toothpick, that's a lot of toothpicks trust me! :D
I got her accessories, including boots, from a cheap Barbie accessory pack at my local toy store! It was on sale :) Her boots are so cool!
So I hope you enjoyed meeting Adelaide :D I'm so proud of her :) She is very sassy and never goes out without her sunglasses onto her head! You'll be seeing more of her in the future! I hope to do this with a lot more dolls, it's so much fun! :-)
