Aussie Brunette Sidepart Ringlet

Blue Eyes, Pink & Peach

SN #3268HR

Outfit

Repro Pink Flare Dress

Made by Nicole USA

Repairs
This little wonder had a Light Wash & Depill, Hair condition, Detangle, Part Rewoven, Ringlets restored and a minor make up touch up. She has a few cut plugs in the very front of her hairline which made doing the ringlets a little more tricky. Also due to her hair being a bit thinner in the front (due to the cuts) I gave this girl a fuller, more natural curl which helps bulk up her hair. SHE IS SO WONDERFUL!!!

Outfit

Original Lavender Party Dress

Repairs
I restored this girl for Belinda in Sydney. She had bad pilling on her face, her part needed restoring and her ringlets needed twirling.

She now has no pilling, her parts are lovely and Belinda just loves her.

It was so hard to send her home in a box, as I admit to falling in love with her on her visit to my house.

Outfit

Original ABC dress

Repairs
This girl is truly lovely. She is so minty, which meant all I needed to do was lightly brush the nap on her face, add some make up and neaten her hair. I added some extra curl to her piggies. She is so cute. I didn't go too dark on her eye lashes as I wanted it to look as original as possible.

Bunny Dress

Made by Bonnie USA

Repairs
Such a sweet face. Although she was only booked in for make up, I felt she needed more work. Her hair was a bit dry and had lost its lustre, I also thought she needed a depill treatment.

She was washed, depilled, her hairpart was neatened, her fringe was re styled and I added a soft curl to her hair. Finished off with a make up touch up.

She is a true beauty.

Original Sailor Dress

Repairs
This little angel had a Wash, Depill, part neaten and Make Up touch up. Her eyelashes were very faded, so I redefined them. Her hair was also washed and conditioned and detangled with my fingers. Her face is so very smooth now. Her friend is 'Pam the panda'

Original White Ducky Outfit

Repairs
This girl had a Wash & Depill. She also had a Deep Hair Condition & detangle, Part Neaten, Fringe neaten and Make Up (She didn't have much eyeshadow left). During her wash, she also had a mould treatment as she has areas of mould on her face, arms and legs.

She has a very innocent expression and looks so sweet in the white ducky outfit.

Past Perfection USA

Repairs
What a sweet little knotty girl. She has had a Wash, Depill and a long Mould Removal process. The Before Pic here doesn't show the real extent, but her entire face was covered in mould. She also had some on her arms and legs. She also had a 36 hour soak as she had lots of dirt. Her face isn't perfect, but she is definitely presentable now. She also had a Hair condition & Detangle, Repart, Ringlets Restored and Make up. Just adorable

Hispanic Girl

Brown Eyes, Pink Makeup

SN # 2036R2

Outfit

Original Yellow Party Dress

Repairs
This sweety is all over perfect except her make up on her right eye. I removed the retouched make up on her eye. I was amazed at how little was left there compared to the other eye. Got me worried!! I also thought her mouth looked retouched as it was too dark, poorly shaped and I was able to get a bit of 'paint' from her mouth when I wet it. It was VERY tricky getting the retouched eye make up to look like the original make up on the other side. I think it looks convincing. Her lips I also made look more original.

SN # cut

Outfit

Repro School Dress

Made by Bonnie USA

Repairs
This poor little girl had been in the wars. Before she came to me, her mum had removed a lot of glue from her face & chin. She looked so sad. She has cuts to her fringe which I thought was going to be a problem. She had another wash to remove the residue of the glue and to depill her face a bit more. Her hair was washed, conditioned, detangled and her parts were all rewoven. Her fringe posed a problem as it tends to stick out a bit. With extra training it will flatten a bit more. Her make up had a slight retouch. She didn't have the typical dark peach eyeshadow as most dolls do. She had a lighter orange colour. She looks happy once more.

What a little sweet pea!!! She had a little spruce up and her part rewoven. I spritz her face and smoothed it out, her hair was stunning to start with, so it made my job easier. Stunning gal!! Her eyes are so sparkling and alive and she is picture perfect in the pink romper. Suits her so well.

Funky Little Polka Dress

Made by Bonnie USA

Repairs
This girl is quite lovely. She had a little pilling on her face and her hands and feet were a little dusty. Nothing major. All marks came out. Her parts were all intact (phew), so she just needed a wash, condition and detangle, curls defines and make up. Her make up was quite faded, so I added a splash of colour to her little face. She is really very sweet and this outfit made by Bonnie suits her so well.

Blue Sleeveless Sundress

Made by Susanne (Mauve Twin)

Repairs
Another lovely brunette. She had a wash and depill, Unfortunately her hair has chops all over, but I styled her hair in a way which disguised it. I added large and small curls which gave her hair loads of bounce and the deep condition gave it extra shine and silkiness. Her make up had a minor touch to even it out.

Repro Pinny Dress + Original Pink Pinny over the top

Dress made by Laurence (France)

Repairs
Goodness me, what a stunner. I gave her a wash and depill, conditioned and detangled her hair, re twirled her ringlets and lightly balanced her make up. She has by far, the most hair on a ringlet I have ever seen. It is totally frizz free and full. It is also super long. Just an amazingly beautiful dolly. She is so happy now, no sad expression.

Outfit

Pink Geometric Dress

Repairs
Goodness me, one of my dream dolls. Would love to own one like her, so will be happy for her to be visiting me. She had a full wash, depill, hair condition and detangle. A small section of the front of her part was rewoven. She had CRAZY hair which needed a lot of care to tame. No artificial curl was added to her. This is all factory curl. Her make up was uneven which I evened out with a little colour. She has slight facial sagging, but simply gorgeous.

Karin, I hope you love her!!

Can I keep her?? hehehe

Repro Pinny Dress + Original Pink Pinny over the top

Dress made by Laurence (France)

Repairs
This girl needed some serious TLC. Her hair was very wild and she was pretty dirty. Some little girl really loved this dolly. She had a wash, depill on her face and body, hair condition treatment, pat neaten and a bit of reweaving, detangle and ringlets done. She has a few plugs cut in the front but these plugs disguise well within the curls. Most of her original part was there so I kept it as original as possible. I also touched up her make up as it was really uneven. It's surprising how little these dolls need in terms of touch up anyway, if it's done with the right tools.

Outfit

A sweet Care Bear wrap dress

Repairs
What a little darling. She was really lovely when she arrived. She didn't need a wash as she was very original and fluffy. I sprayed her face and depilled it (which also removes dust etc and non original make up). To my surprise all of her make up was original. It's gorgeous and not faded in spots like most dolls. Her hair was then conditioned, detangled and her V Part was worked a lot as it was all messed up. I rewove most of it plug by plug. I put her hair in a few curlers to add body. GORGEOUS!

Pink Ducky set

Repairs
Sad little girl this one was. Lots of dirt and grime and mould. But she had LOADS of potential. What a fabulous combo she has too. Her hair although crazy had some original parts intact. Her fringe needed extensive work. I tried to keep as much of the original parts as possible and just fixed areas. I also depilled her face and body. She didn't have a lot of curl left in her hair, but I gave her some nice barrel curls. Overall she is super lovely. She's AT LAST ready to go home to her very patient mum. Thanks for waiting so long!!

Repro Romper + Original Pink Pinny over the top

Repairs
She didn't need as much work as I expected. Light face and feet wash, her hair condition and detangle all went smoothly. Not 1 cut hair on her head. Half of her original part was there, the remaining I rewove. Her ringlets are so soft and bouncy. I twisted them back to bring out the factory curl. Her make up was very faded, especially her eyeshadow and eyelashes, so I strengthened them up and filled her lips a bit more evenly. HEAVENLY!! I don't think this girl has ever been washed and she has a beautiful minty body.

I've done a few sidepart ringlets recently and I find some have more hair than others. Very unique and you're never really sure how the doll will turn out.

Lovely dolly, she just needed a bit of TLC to spruce her up. She has a facial soak and depill to help combat the loose skin. Her hair was neatened up, parts done. Her make up is gorgeous and her hair is super soft and luscious. Perfect hispanic girl.

Strawberry Shortcake Dress

Repairs
This little sweety had a bit of everything done. She was depilled, her hair neatened (she has one of those stubborn stick out fringes, but mostly she needed some make up work. She had colour on one eye but hardly any make up on the other. I evened it out by enhancing the colour that was there, added some more cheek colour and a tiny bit of lip colour to add definition to the lip contour. I love this dress on her. Green and red go so well together.

Repro Blue Hearts Pinny

Repairs
Sad little baby/ Was a bit dirty (superficially) and spelt a bit musty. She was washed, face depilled, body depilled, hair conditioned and detangled, small area of part rewoven, fringe neaten and some hidden plugs brought forward, make up.

I would have to say that this crimp has the softest crimp hair I have ever felt. Seems very bouncy and nice, no crunchy ends. She turned out much nicer than I had expected. Lovely.

To the owner: I'd love to buy her if you ever consider selling her!!!

What a bomb shell. Her face was a bit pilly, but not badly, quite superficial. Very minty and gorgeous. She had a light face, hand and foot wash and most work was done on her V Fringe.
