Last year my mom mentioned sometime before Christmas that she would love it if I got and restored a Velvet or a Baby Crissy for her. I didn't! Instead I got her a Ms. Beasley doll. (Someday I'll have to tell you the story of my mom's Ms. Beasley but not today!) This year I decided that I would look for one of the dolls she had mentioned. So I went on e-bay and found a Baby Crissy I thought I could pretty easily fix and within a few days she arrived! If you don't know much about Baby Crissy you can read about her here.
I didn't have much time to fix her up so I got to work right away! Here she is almost fresh out of the box:
She smelled kind of funny. In fact the poor girl was filthy!
Her eyes looked liked they were scuffed and scratched.
Her hair was a tangled mess as expected!
There were points where I was pretty sure I would never get her hair tangle free. It was matted so bad. But thanks to my trusty AG brush (poor thing needed some serious superglue therapy after we were done!) and some braid spray her ponytail came out looking like this:
|She has such a cute little tushy!|
So then it was on to the rest of her hair!
|Even this part had tangles!|
And finally it was done:
|I love that color!|
The top of her head:
And here she is finished:
Remember when I said somewhere up there that Baby Crissy is HUGE? Well here she is next to Ivy:
My mom was pretty thrilled! She was like "OH MY GOSH!! Do you know what this is!?" to my stepfather who then tried to RUN AWAY from the cute little baby doll. When I left she was hanging out with Ms. Beasley and I am very happy that I got to continue a little tradition with my mom! Till next time guys!
