*Reader Photos* DIY Doll Makeover + Contest

Shosy has made over what she calls a Dumpster Doll project. The before and after comparison is wonderful!

I found this 2006 Madame Alexander doll for $3.99 at a 30% discount.
She is pretty cute, but her hair is in bad shape and she doesn't stand too well.   

After a good washing and comb through and it looks almost normal again.

I had to cut the hair because I am making this doll over into a vintage looking doll.

I also added in a few layers.

Cleaned, hair in perm rollers and lips sanded just a bit.

So shiny - this is actually a base color then another accent color in the crease and a coat of sealer.

Red base color and sealer applied to finger nail and toes.

I know this seems like a lot of makeup.....

 My version of Milton Greene's original photos.
