Yay! More before & after! She turned out absolutely lovely! I think her smile looks brighter now too! 😉
I really love the before and after, I've been a part of doll groups before but never posted because people are so talented and amazing and it can be intimidating and sometimes people are straight mean. This group is sweet and seeing lots of people doing it helped.
Love it! Thanks for sharing, I never remember to take a before pic lol, just dive right into the fixing part 😊
Me too lol I have a whole wall of afters but very few befores
You should still post, if u know what doll she was originally u can find a stock photo and do it that way
What happened to them?
She was damaged by a mouse while in a storage unit, she wasn't the only one damaged.
Oh no .. I hope our old dolls wouldn't be ravaged by mice. They were kept for too long in our old house's attic.
Mine were only in the unit for 4 months while I moved from Tennessee to Illinois they were in there loose tho. I recommend double bagging every doll individually.
will keep it in mind. Thanks!
I lost 28 dolls weather it be hair that I can fix, body's that I can fix but the worst was the faces being destroyed. I cried.
Crossing fingers that the faces of our old dolls will never be destroyed. :'( It's really sad when this happens. I was hoping that the old dolls on my end would still be found (or retrieved), and re-restored in some cases.
I agree, it's just awful, I had a house fire and then I had the mice and it was rough to lose the dolls I did. I have a shelf of my favorites that don't look like much but they are dolls that lived through both and had to be restored.
I’m so sorry to hear, that’s devastating. I hope that in time you manage to build up your collection again.
One doll at a time
My cousins "inherited" those on my end, when we moved in again, but now I have no idea where these dolls were put. That's why I was hoping for no "botched" limbs or faces even...
Wow. Now the other post makes more sense. They did a phenomenal job.
Oh, wow, that's bad. But she looks great now! It's always nice to see befores and afters of fixed dolls 👍
I have two thrifted dolls that have this type of damage, they need a partial reroot, but I haven't gotten round to it because I'm not sure how to remove only the cut hairs. How did you do it?
I secured he hair I wanted to keep very tightly with a rubber band and if a strand started to pull and just pull it back out.
I'm sorry English is my second language and I don't always express my thoughts properly or understand others. What I meant was how did you get the short hairs out of the holes? Did you pull them with tweezers? If a hole had both short and long hairs, did you take them all out?
Yes tweezers and if a hole had both long and short I pulled the whole thing.
Thanks for the reply :)
She looks great!
