Today was going to be all about Samantha's Meet Outfits at last, but I forgot to take ONE picture and now I have to wait till tomorrow to take it. So instead I'm going to talk about this box:
I wasn't planning on buying/starting my boys quite yet but my dear bff sent me to an ebay auction last week and the doll was exactly what I needed and it was in pretty decent shape AND it was less that 40 bucks bin! So I pounced and today I got it:
Mostly this doll is just really really dirty.
Here you can see how tangled it all is:
So far I've washed and brushed it out. I've got a small collection of wigs I'm working on for one doll that I haven't bought yet so I'm trying to save this one if at all possible.
Back to the doll:
There is also a small gouge on the left hand:
And he desperately needs to be restrung:
Have I mentioned the dirt yet?
After that he is getting an eye swap sometime in the next couple of months when I buy my other boy and then I'll glue his wig on! It's been sitting here forever so it's pretty exciting to be close to using it. When I'm all done his name is going to be Jebediah (Jeb) Guthrie. He's the little brother of Sam and Jay (who belong to Traci) and Melody!
Honestly I'm so thrilled! I was a little bummed about the eyelashes but, truth be told, I'm not worried about it. It's not very noticeable and I got an amazing deal on this doll. I love talking about clothing but this is the kind of stuff I live for! I'm so excited to finally get started on this project and I hope you all are excited to see the results! Till next time!
