Today I would like to show you two Rocker Barbies from the 180. Their eye make up is slightly different, both are marked “Philippines”. As you can see their hair is very different.
I had been considering whether I should try to curl the hair on the one in blue. However, after looking at a lot of photos of that edition of Rocker Barbie I don’t think she was ever meant to have super curly hair so I don’t think I will.
The other one, the one with really curly hair I have a different problem. A previous owner covered her in glitter. Her legs I think are meant to look like she has glitter stockings but she also has glitter on her body, face and even her hair. I don’t know if that was intentional or not. Glitter is messy stuff to work with.
My question to all of you is do you think I should try and get all of it off her or leave the legs and just do the rest of her? I’m not quite sure what I’d use yet. My usual method is to start with dishwashing liquid and move on to stronger methods if that fails. I also don’t want Barbie’s hair to come out of curl because I’m sure I’d never manage to recreate it.
So, before I start I’m interested in your opinions. Whatever I end up doing I will share it here of course.
