I’m not sure why but as much as I love to customize I really prefer my own dolls to be pretty close to stock if not completely stock. Above is the new Primadolly Aubrena. She’s really just lovely as is. I don’t have any desire to change her except maybe replace her orange chips. I used to sand matte these dolls as soon as I got them but lately I can’t even do that if they have nice make-up. I don’t think they come as shiny as they used to.
I thought I got her to customize but she’s too perfect. Maybe I’ll have to get another in a few months simply for customizing. Hopefully her price won’t shoot up. She’s not limited and starts for under $100 but she’s selling out at the cheaper places like Hobbylink and Hobby Search. The exchange rates these days are terrible so Yahoo Japan hasn’t been a good option.
Below is a new Kenner. I sold off several dolls and clothes to get her. The seller was patient enough to let me make payments. Plus she was a much better deal than if I went to Evilbay.
She didn’t need much work done to her. Her forehead had a big scrape on it which I sanded away and there’s still some faint little scratches left but not very noticeable. She got some more de-frizzing and her lips were touched up. Her eyeballs were a little yellowed so I whitened those up a bit. I may still apply pearl drops to whiten them some more but I’m pretty happy with her for now. She’s so sweet. A nice companion for Fern my blonde Kenner.
