2012 Barbie for President - Asian

Despite having molded on shoes and non bending plastic legs, she is a lovely doll. If this is keeping you from getting her I'll show you how to leg swap.Will post pics once I find some donor legs. Of course you can take the easy way and re body her, but why waste the articulated arms ^_^

The top is a one piece and the skirt is a full print

Fashionista Ken

I picked up 2 pink bow tie Fashionista kens to hold as a body donor for the newer ones with no knee joints. I havent seen the new ones in stores yet so I figured I get some old ones now before they're long gone.
After I debox them I  notice something odd. I already had one in my personal collection and brought him out to compare with the 2. One of the new one has dark blonde hair with no highlights, looks like a variant or the factory ran out of hair for the highlights.  I dont know if you can see it in the picture, saran hair sure is shiny!

The variant is in the middle, even though they are the same doll each one looks different.

New Ken fashions are out and Im shocked with this one. Its only ONE outfit and should be in the smaller pack for $6. Its such a waste of packing material and its so not worth the amount! What was Mattel thinking!? I suppose its extra pieces since the vest is not sewn on the shirt, which is always sewn onto the pants (like all the suits M made so far) a one piece and a jacket  but still, seriously?!

Rapunzel Reroot commission

This 17" Disney Store Rapunzel doll, my first reroot of this size and it used so much hair!
Doing a doll with this length was a pain and I had to untangle often, even with braids put on. She took up most of my time and I do not recommend having a doll with this length of hair!  I was sick while working on her and scared the hell out of her owner as I couldn't get on the computer. I'm glad shes done and out of my hair ;-)

I don't have a doll of this size so I put the head on my 12" Rapunzel , which sorta works since most dolls today have a big head and all ^_^

2012 President Barbies

They're out! I saw them at toysrus and Target, both places has the 3 minus the Asian doll. I have a feeling Nia will be hard to find, just like President Leas. I really dont want to order her online because knowing Mattel, I will get one with funky eyes!

I also saw an interesting close mouth Cinderella, shes pretty! Looks like a collectors edition, with a big head ! lol

On the back of one of the new Cinderella dolls shows a new clothing pack with movie accurate colors! Cant wait to see the quality of these!

Reroots for J

Barbie Basics 1.0 Goddess and a dynamite girl. The DG looks to have pigtails with bangs. J wanted the bangs removed and a side part.

My Little Pony Reroot

Rehair, as the pony folks call it. I bought these 80s ponies last year and both had their manes cut short. The rehair was so simple and easy I dont know why I didn't do them sooner. I left their hair a little long :)

Disney Fairies Fashion

I always had my eye on these Tinker Bell fashions but wasn't willing to spend $10. I found 3 of the same fashion clearance on Walmart for $3!

The quality of the fashion sucks, it frays/rips easily and will not last childs play.

Now I need to find the rest and the first set.
