A while ago, I bought a bag of what appeared to be vintage Barbies. As it turned out, they weren't Barbies, but Farbies (aka clones). I didn't find this one overly attractive (her head was a weird shape, I thought). I finally got around to do something about it this past couple weeks.
First thing I did was reroot her. Her original hair had a nasty texture. I couldn't tell if it had been a bubble cut, or if it had been, just cut.
Ta da!! Much better! I realized after I did this part, that it was the super high forehead that wasn't doing her any favors.
I clipped up her hair to see what she would look like with a ponytail! I thought pretty good!
|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.|
The stand I made out of one of those balloon sticks, a jar lid, some felt, some wire, and some ribbon.
I'm trying to sell her locally, as I don't collect clones, but she's kinda starting to grow on me...maybe I'll call her Audrey for now.
Thanks for looking!!
