One of the goals for my collection is to have at least one example of every face mold American Girl has ever used. I'm actually one doll away from achieving that goal but I probably won't get that doll until Christmas or after!
Anyway, a few months back I got Kaya. Actually I got an amazing deal! I found a Kaya and a Samantha for sale together on ebay! I later sold the Samantha, since I already have one, for the same price I bought the both of them for so basically Kaya was free! Win!
So here is how the two of them arrived in the box:
(btw I'll apologize now for the quality of these first few pictures. They were taken a few months back and I was on my bed and never got around to taking proper pictures!)
And out of the box:
You can see how matted Kaya's hair was when I got her. From what I understand this sort of thing happens a lot to these dolls when their hair gets taken out of the original braids. She had a few marks but the biggest problem was obviously her hair!
So the first thing I did was wash it with baby shampoo and condition it. It actually came out so nice and soft that I decided not to do a downy dunk!
But I still wasn't totally satisfied so today I did a little straightening and I took a few pictures for you all!
And last but not least the back of her hair all done:
There is still one problem with her hair and that is that the little hairs at her part are very dry but since I love her hair down I'm not too worried about it! I am very happy with how she turned out and I had the best time taking pictures with her today! She's such a beauty!
And because some of you may be curious:
Some news! Molly is on her way and I can hardly stand the wait! She should be here next week sometime! Also today I got what I was waiting on for Doll B! She will be mailed first thing Monday; so keep your eyes peeled for her big reveal next week as well as Molly's!
Until next time guys!
