A few months ago, Naomi bought the red-haired Fashionista doll and the one with long rooted hair. These days if she sees a male fashion doll that she thinks she might be able to restyle she buys him and puts him aside for later and that’s what happened with these two. There was a plan for the redhead, he was to receive a wig and he was given the name Bill.
Every time Naomi came to Sisters Beach, she brought a car load of her belongings including her fashion dolls, clothing and props. Naturally she thought that Bill must be amongst these things but she couldn’t find him. I was pretty sure that I had not seen him. I had moved a few things around, taking out dolls or clothes to be photographed and generally rearranging the shelves but I saw no sign of the plastic shopping bag that Naomi said that she had put Bill in. It worried me a lot. I kept thinking that maybe I had seen the bag and put it somewhere and forgotten about it, even though I had no visual memory of seeing either Bill or his long-haired friend. “Where is Bill?” became a frequent topic of conversation.
Months passed and eventually Naomi got fed up and bought another redhead. She didn’t worry about replacing the Fashionista as she didn’t like him as much. The new doll was deboxed, given the name of Maxxon, and redressed. Guess what happened then? Yes, Bill turned up at her house back in Oatlands. I was very relieved that my memory had not been playing tricks on me.
So now Bill could get his wig and be redressed; as soon as Naomi remembered where she put the wig.
