Almost all of that haul was donated by a little old lady who collected all sorts of dolls, it turns out. And she sewed for them as well, which explains the homemade clothing some (if not most) of them sported. It really makes me wonder what I missed, you know? I went back the next day to see if any more had been put out, but came up empty. The store is moving stuff around now, and it looks like they're moving the toys to a more open area of the shop. In a way this is good because it means that (hopefully) there won't be as much broken and destroyed stuff to dig through. At the same time... yeah, the whole county will now see me digging through toys.
It's a scary thought.
Anyway, I've discovered that the "too large" clothing on a few of the Barbies can actually fit my Moxie Teenz doll, Tristan! Remember this dress?
|The pink-streaked wig: suddenly much more useful!"|
How about this dress? Look familiar?
|This dress is an odd length, but very pretty!|
|That dress on the left is just... just... wow. I can't even describe that thing.|
The skirt got bunched weird on the makeshift doll stand, but ignore it for just a sec and check this out!
|3/4 length sleeves and a slightly high waist, but the ruffles are much more in scale now.|
|Warning: Dress also functions as a blinding doomsday device.|
And it looks much better than it did on the original model.
|Somehow, this dress made the original Barbie look pregnant or something.|
|I leaned over and then suddenly my sleeves looked like they were two different lengths!|
|Ready for my close-up!|
