US Red Double Top Knot

Aqua Eyes, Pink & Peach

SN #1116R2 Handwritten


Outfit

Original White Sailor Dress


Repairs
This little girl was pretty good. I got the feeling she had endured a spin in the washing machine as her hair was so dry. She was washed and had an intense conditioning treatment, parts restored and a slight make up retouch as it was quite faded. She is a lovely girl.

US Taiwan Red Top Knot

Violet Eyes, Pink & Peach

SN #3555L Handwritten


Outfit

Repro School Outfit

Made by Bonnie USA


Repairs
Although she was a bit grubby, she was in amazing condition for a Taiwan Girl. Her make up was strong and she had only slight sagging. After a wash, I pulled back the sags and placed her in front of the heater for 5 minutes (not too close). It seemed to shrink & set her skin. Parts were restored and a slight make up touch up. She has an adorable cheekyness.

US Redhead Puppy

Outfit

OOAK Ballerina Dress with Tutu

Made by Bonnie USA


Repairs
Got this girl. Excuse the language but she is the CRAPPIEST DOLL I HAVE EVER SEEN!!!. Much more damage than expected. Holes everywhere. No fingers on 1 hand, neck broken. She also has had a face lift and a dodgy nose cover up. What a challenge. I have now finished her. I put make up on her and she looks really good. Such beautiful hair too!! She needs a nose job still.

Betty loves the attention. A big round of applause for her performance. Her stunning ballet outfit was made by Bonnie. Her delicate slippers, whimsical sleeves, satin leotard and detachable tutu. Little princess. Thanks Bonnie for another fabulous creation.

Aussie Redhead Haircut

Aqua Eyes, Peach Makeup

SN #1057HR


Outfit

Original Yellow Party Dress


Repairs
My first Aussie redhead and although she has a haircut, she looks very sweet. She has a full centre part so originally would have been an UL or a Double Ribbons girl. She has a sort of undercut at the back, so I styled her in a 60's bob with some extra lift at the crown. SO ADORABLE even with this extensive damage.

She also had a wash, depill and make up touch up.

US Redhead Puppy

Blue Eyes, Peach make up

SN #1896R2


Outfit

Repro Pinny Set with Peach dots


Repairs
What a sweet little redhead. She has a very worldly expression. She had a light wash and face depill, her hair was conditioned and detangled and set in a Double Ribbons style. She has glue on her right eye which I could not remove but I matched up her make up, so she looked balanced. So cute. Thanks Jodi for giving her to me, she is adorable.

Repairs
This girls pic is hardly a BEFORE photo. She is super duper perfect. All I will need to do to her is freshen up her hair from her travels from the US. Those boxed can really cramp a girls style!!. Isn't she just gorgeous??. She is welcomed with open arms!! Bonnie, I promise to take great care of her.

US Redhead Topknot

Blue Eyes, Peach Make up

SN #---------


Outfit

-------


Repairs
This girl is very very very minty. Her body and face are so fluffy and perfect, she's a dream to touch/ She has never had a bath either from what I can tell, her serial number is like new. Just gorgeous. I will do her hair, neaten up her parts, take off her old previously touched up make up and she will be stunning. Topkots are a PAIN to reweave as the frige is tricky to do as the fringe lengths and the hair lengths are almost the same so it's hard to know which plug to put where.

Canadian Redhead Dyed UL

Green Eyes, Pink & Grey

SN #---------


Outfit

Repro Mint Pink Pinny set


Repairs
Oh, what a sweety. I've never come to terms with the cost of redhead UL's, so have always wanted a Dyed girl to fill some holes in my redhead collection. I was planning to dye one myself but have been very lazy recently.

All I did to this girl, was bring forward a bit more fringe, reweave part and brush her face and body. She's so lovely. As good as the real thing. This girl was dyed by the talented Kaye.
