Before Shavonne After



Aussie Blonde Double Ribbons

Brown Eyes, Pink & Peach

SN #faded.


Outfit

White Eyelet Lace Dress

Made by Bonnie USA


Repairs
This little one was seriously well loved girl with surprisingly little damage apart from the deep dirt. It was so caked on, if you ran your fingernail over her cheek it left a line. I gave her a long soak and depilled her. Hair condition, detangle, reparts, hair styled and make up. One of my prize restorations. She turned out so brilliant. I knew there was a gorgeous girl under all that muck.

Outfit

Pink Polka Dot Party Dress & Matching Barrette

Made by Susanne (Mauve Twin) Australia


Repairs
This girl is an interesting one. Apart from the slight hair cut in the front, her hair is a different texture to all of my other dolls. It feels different. After a condition though, I found it just to be super smooth. I rewove sections of her fringe to disguised the cuts or faults. Her fringe refused to stay straight down and kept parting, so I took it as a sign. Her make up was touched up to add definition. SHE HAS THE SMOOTHEST HAIR EVER.

Outfit

Original Pink Party Dress


Repairs
This girl was pretty perfect when she arrived. Just a bit of jet lag. I sprayed her face with water and smoothed the pile, I neatened her 'travel hair', she is just divine.

The pink dress makes her eyes jump out. I love here innocent little face!!! GORGEOUS DOLL. No hair cuts and thick thick silky hair

Aussie Blonde Pony Ringlet

SN #1188HR?? (very faded)


Outfit

Original White Sailor outfit


Repairs
This girl was lovely when she arrived. I didn't bath her, she didn't need it. She simply needed a hair 'do', so I neatened her Pony Tails and re set her ringlets. I added a slight bit of colour to her lips.

She is so lovely and ready to explore the world by sea.

SN #faded


Outfit

Floral Flare Repro
Made by Bonnie USA


Repairs
This girl had a bit of pilling and needed a light bath and depill. Her fringe was almost all intact, just needed a bit of refinement. I think the trip in the mail may have caused her hair to fall out of place. Only a slight touch up to her lips and a soft curl added to add body to her hair.

Repairs
She had a bath, some mould treated and some odd substance removed from her tush. Her pilling was smoothed out. Her nose was twisted into the correct position. Tangles smoothed, part restored and her ringlets just popped back into place.

I've added a genuine Swarovski Crystal to her hair clip for a bit of sparkle. She is a lovely girl.

Repro Yellow Party Dress

Made by Bonnie USA


Repairs
She had the sadest face. She
had lip stick, nail poilsh and liquid paper on her face.She had bad pilling and required a long bath.
All of her parts were restored and that's fun when the fringe goes
all the way around!! She unfortunately also had NO MAKE UP left on her face. So all new make up using pencils.

This was my very first attempt at Make Up, so go easy on me!!. Looking at her now, I might redo her make up :)

Outfit

White Eyelet Lace Dress

Made by Bonnie USA


Repairs
I honestly don't know where to start with this girl. She was A SHOCKER. She soaked for 2 days with 5 changes of the water. She had very deep dirt. Almost another 2 days getting the knots out! She has a badly damaged right eye which I disguised by putting dark eyeshadow on her. Most of her part was intact. She is far from perfect but still adorable.

Outfit

Original Sleeper with Pink Bear

Made by Bonnie USA


Repairs
This little girl had heaps of pilling on her face and although her parts indicated to me she had Pony Tails, they were shorter (look cut) as well as crimped!!! Her make up was great. She had about 200 paint slatters on her legs and back which luckily washed out easily.

Parts were restored and I decided to leave in the crimp. Her eyes are so lovely.

Teal  & Lace Dress

Repairs
Another little waif cutie. She was probably an UL or Double Ribbons girl and has chops all over. Very cute cut actually. I decided to keep her hair as is. There was definitely enough to work with. The barrette adds a bit of magic. She is so cheeky.

Cute Overall Outfit

Made by Laurence (France)


Repairs
Another little waif cutie. Hair cut was harsh underneath but was a nice even bob cut on the top, so I styled her that way. She wasn't very dirty at all, only her face needed special care.

The outfit suits her so well. Thanks Laurence, it's such a beautiful gift. xoxoxox

She looks like a little farm girl with her pet cow Fergus.

I loved her hair how it was, so all I did to her was spray her face to smooth it out and neatened her hair a bit which was a little flat from her short trip.

Isn't this girl just adorable. She only needed some minor hair work as she had a bit of frizz. I depilled her and conditioned her hair and removed the frizz, then added soft wave back in with curlers. Named after a very special friend.

Outfit

White Satin full length Gown


Repairs
This girl has an entire row of plugs cut in the front as well as some length cut to her hair. I gave her a full wash, depill, hair cut (to even out the style) and a body wave curl. Her make up was strengthened to aid definition.

She looks like Marilyn Monroe in her white satin gown. I'm very happy with the way she turned out, she is very cute and sassy.

Gorgeous Overall Outfit

Made by Laurence (France)


Repairs
This sweet little girl had already been restored by another loving MC collector. She was gorgeous when she arrived but I had plans to make her look very young and playful. Her hair was fabulous with great parting so all I did was neaten it up from her trip and gave her some flicky out bits on the sides. I re did her make up and after washing off the other make up, there was not a lot left. so I changed her eyeshadow to grey to bring out her eyes. She has beautiful shiny eyes. Doesn't she look mischievious in her little overalls? Lovely dolly.
