Aussie 2 Tone Crimp

Blue Eyes, Pink  & Grey

SN #3268HR

Outfit

Original Purple Party Dress

Repairs
Another gorgeous little crimp.
I eventually convinced Belinda to selling her me. She is wonderful doll. She had a face wash, soak and depill. Her hair had a deep condition. Her part was fully intact, so I just detangled it, reset her fringe and touched up her make up. She didn't have much eye make up definition on her left eye. So glad she's now mine.

Aussie Ash Sidepart Ringlet

Green Eyes, Peach Make up

SN #2098HR

Outfit

Original Floral Flare & Barrette

Repairs
Although her hair was still showing obvious ringlets, they were quite knotty and undefined. She had some ringlets that were going to the wrong side of the part. This girl had: Wash, Depill, Detangle & Condition treatment, Part neatened, Ringlets restored and a very slight make up retouch through the slit in her mouth. Belinda has recently taken this after photo which shows how the ringlets relax over time, making them look even more natural.

Thanks to this dolly's Mum for the use of the after photo.

Aussie Ash Crimp

SN #1008HR

Outfit

Repro School Outfit

What a cutie. Overall she was a bit smelly and dirty, but has great features. When I washed her I found her eyeshadow was not original. It totally lifted off in water. Her eyelashes however were great. She had a long bath, hair condition treatment. If I combed her hair it would loose any original crimp clumps so instead I spent an hour or so gently detangling with my fingers. I also reapplied her eyeshadow and touched up her lips. Nose straightened also. SO SWEET!!!

Aussie Ash Sidepart Ringlet

Blue Eyes, Pink & Peach

SN #---------

Outfit

Repro Blue Pinny set

Repairs
What a sweety. She's was booked in to have Wash & Depill, Parts done, ringlets restored & make up. After a wash, I found her hair was VERY FRIZZY. Had to use a straightening iron on the ends to remove as much as possible. In doing so, I have twisted her ringlets tighter to get the curl back in. Her lovely friend is a OOAK bear made by Lucie Baeren in Germany. His name is Maroni.

Ash Sidepart Ringlet

SN # -758HR

Outfit

Repro Party Dress

Made by Nicole (Past Perfection) USA

Repairs
What a little sweety. Her hair is very cute, soft and boofy. She needed her face washed and depilled (her body looks clean), I conditioned and detangled her hair and found she had more frizz than expected. I reparted her and set her ringlets to see if they smoothed OK but they were a bit frizzy on the ends so I de frizzed her, re conditioned and set her ringlets again. Worked beautifully this time. She also had a very slight make up touch up to finish her look.

Outfit

Gorgeous Red polka dot dress

Repairs
This girl is sweet in her white and red spot dress. She was here for a simple face depill. As you can see her face was a little pilly. Vcky wanted to keep her hair as is so I couldn't soak her face like I would normally like to in order to remove pilling, so I had to spray her face and keep doing that until it softened the fabric nap. I was able to them simply smooth her face. She isn't perfect but much better. She has a little Horsey friend who is a finger puppet made in Bolivia.

US Ash Puppy with Hair cut

Blue Eyes, Pink & Peach Makeup

SN # 2956R2

Outfit

Original Romper
& Bear from Sleeper Set

Repairs
This girl has been very well loved. She was pretty dirt and soaked for 2 days. Her hair has LOADS of chops and cuts all through which made this girl very challenging. Her part was rewoven to be just a top of the head part and I put in some curls. She is far from perfect but she is now clean and adorable. She had some pens stains, one on her nose which I was able to remove but the one on her hand didn't come out fully.

This sweet girl arrived. She needed a wash, depill, parts rewoven, fringe neatened and a slight make up touch up. She is beautiful and has amazing soft hair.

Her face is super smooth. It looks mint now. She has a very grown up, wise face. A doll beyond her 18 years of age. hehe.

Gorgeous Geometric Dress

Made by Susanne (Mauve Twin)

Repairs
I would have to say, this would be the most stunning Ash V Part I've seen. BUMMER, I forgot to take a Before photo of her but she was a typical hair messed up girl. I was too hasty getting her washed. She had a light wash, depill, hair condition and detangle, parts neatened, soft wave to add dimension to her hair. Her make up is so perfect, she only had a slight fade through her mouth which I filled in. Love this dress on her too!!!!!!!
