IN FOR A POUND!!
Well having almost finished Lulu, I decided thatthere are a few others in the clan in need of a little TLC, so yesterday I did this....
Yes we took Ava apart so she could have her fringe re rooted. But in doing so we realised that her stringing was very tight and had caused some neck caving. She was also very dirty around her leg and arm joints.
On close inspection what appeared to be only a missing front row of plugs was in fact a second row at the top was stubble which is what makes her 'fringe' stand up!
and here you can see she'll need some of the top removed and re rooted also, I may leave the longer hair and re root amongst it to help it blend in.
Her chest also had some caving from the tight strings.
You can see it more if I put her head back with her body.
Unfortunately I broke the neck ring getting the string out but was straight on the computer to Shelly to get a couple more!!
So another new thing to learn, getting rid of caving by dropping into boiling water for a few seconds and working out how much string I need to cut to restring her without causing new caving!
Dee, you're on a roll! I have to say that I find this sort of thing very addictive and looks like you are going the same way! It's just so rewarding when things all come together and we did it ourselves! I have a Gotz Natterer here with some serious neck caving and also some potential reroots, it's just getting the time to do it!ReplyDelete
Big hugs Sharon xx
Lol I am certainly determined to re root my Sasha's that are in need and I must say that I am enjoying seeing them in better condition, so addicted possibly!! :)Delete
I was surprise how easy it was to mend the chest caving!
Hugs Dee xx
I can see The Sasha Village shortly becoming The Sasha Village Sasha Doll's Hospital where we can send our dolls for hair re-rooting, re-stringing, torso un-caving, replacement neck assemblies and general cleaning and care.ReplyDelete
With all the saved money from the above DIY you'll soon be able to purchase that needed slate eyed red head as a sister for Callie.
Congratulations and well done you!
Mmm not to sure about that Kendal but I am enjoying sorting out my Sashas and it is so nice saving the money by doing it myself, there fore as you so rightly say, gives me funds for other purchases!!! :)Delete
Watch out, Sashas! Mrs. mum has turned into a crazy surgeon.... not one of your heads will be safe on your shoulders! Off with their heads, off with their heads!ReplyDelete
Actually Dee, my kids are standing in line, waiting to jump into travel boxes so they can visit the
new clinic they believe Auntie Kendal has just announced you will be opening.....
As long as I don't start pulling their perfectly good hair out, I think they are safe!!! lol I'm sure when I get to my trendon that needs re rooted fringe and so a much harder head, I'll probably stop!!!Delete
You're welcome to send the worse one with the prettiest face along , it may be several months before he/she returns....... :)
Off with their heads, off with their heads!ReplyDelete
Watch out, Sashas, mrs Mum has turned into a mad surgeon. Your heads are not safe upon your shoulders.
Actually Dee, my kids are lining up to jump into travel boxes, ready to visit the clinic they think Auntie Kendal has just announced you will be opening....
I think you have a touch of the Queen of Hearts me dear!!!Delete
Sorry, Dee. This keeps happening on Blogger today (happened on four other blogs I follow ). my message doesn't show up so, ten minutes later, I try again. That one doesn't show up either and then, an hour or so later, I think i'll give it another go and there are the original two messages!ReplyDelete
Don't know who to blame!
Personally I'd blame them all!!! :) That happened to me the other day, I thought my comment had not taken , so did it again only to return and find two!!! Whats that all about????Delete
I can see it now, in lights "Dee's Sasha Spa". What a great place to rest and recover from the bumps of life! Well done Dee!!! :) xxxReplyDelete
Not to sure I'll still be eager if I had a whole line of balding Sasha's and Gregor's watching me from the shelves!!! lol But at the moment I am enjoying working on my waifs :) xxxDelete
