In the same haul I found the She-ra figures, I also found some G1 MLPs and a couple Keypers. 25 cents each!
They were pretty grimy and needed some hair TLC, and spent the afternoon giving them each a spa day.
Will post updates when the hair dries!
Thanks for stopping by!

|Her curly hair is in pretty amazing shape|
Storm, from my own shelf:
|I believe it's actually called "Silver Storm"based on the accessories, missing the bridle piece|
The odd duck out was this doll with green hair:
Thanks for stopping by!

She also had black stains on her face, on her forhead, nose and chin. I thought this was the perfect time to try the benzoyl peroxide zit cream (I found some at Dollar Tree) in sunlight method.
Husband: Why is there a doll head on the window sill?
Me: I'm trying to get rid of black marks on her face.
M: With peroxide cream and sunlight.
H: How does the sunlight help?
M: I don't know. That's what the internet told me to do.
*A few hours later*
Husband: So, as far as the sunlight goes, the UV from the sun doesn't actually help the peroxide to work, it's the heat apparently. I have a heat lamp you can use, since there's not a lot of heat coming through that window.
Me: Wow. You've done a lot more research than I did.
Anyhoo...under the heat lamp she went! It worked like a charm!
|If only zit cream worked this well on humans.|

I'm not entirely happy, but I sealed it all anyway. It was good practice. One of her eyes ended up bigger than the other, and I think I should have started her mouth lower down or maybe wider, to try and hide the factory molding better. I also think I should have made her eyes more round.
I also don't have an outfit for her.
Thanks for looking.

|She is wearing one of the new "one size fits all" Barbie fashions, and dollar store shoes. She was hard to find shoes that fit half decent! Her feet are smaller than most of the Barbie shoes I have.|

I went to Canadian Tire today, to pick up some plastic glue to fix up some cracks in a vintage Barbie head.
As I was trying to find the correct aisle for glue (I'm hardly ever in there and stuff has been moved around since last time), when I stumbled across...TOYS!!
They had Made to Move Barbies (they had them tagged as "Endless Moves Barbie") on clearance for $11.99, which is pretty good since Walmart had been clearance pricing them at $10. PLUS they had the red headed one!! Total score! I hadn't been able to find her yet. There were 2 left so I snagged both.
There were other Barbies there as well, but I didn't get any others.
I didn't even forget the glue. Ha ha.
