I have a batch of dolls in the bathroom waiting to be cleaned up but I bypassed them because I wanted to clean up some dolls to use for “Around The World” and “Fashion Doll Friday”. Here are there “Before and After” stories.
“Beach Feet” dolls
There were several dolls with the larger flat feet in the crate. I recently showed you “A Mermaid’s Tale 2” Teresa. Here are some of her friends. I believe these are:
- Tropical Beach Barbie 2012
- Tropical Beach Teresa 2012
- Cali Girl Teresa 2004
- Cali Girl Horse Riding Lea 2005
- Unknown Teresa
The girls all needed their hair fixed but that was easily done. Barbie had very grubby legs but the others were pretty clean.
I think that Barbie is wearing her original outfit so I left it on her. The doll with the green earrings I thought might be Tropical Beach Teresa. Surf’s Up Teresa from 2007 has the same earrings but after looking on 1,000 Splendid Dolls I think her colouring is more like Tropical Beach Teresa.The butterfly clip in her hair was added by her previous owner.
Lea did not need much work but Cali Girl Teresa had some crazy hair going on.
The last Teresa was a bit more of a problem. She’d had her lips repainted but it looked a bit messy so I decided to clean it off with nail polish remover. Unfortunately I didn’t notice that some dripped onto her body and stained the vinyl in patches. She will look OK dressed but I’m annoyed with myself for that. Her lips will need repainting but at least now she has white teeth. I am still trying to work out who she is.
I did two other dolls with this lot but neither of them are beach dolls. Both had serious hair cuts. I will show you those next time with some others whose hair I still have to do.
