Purple Fairy Fun

Today I have another doll makeover for you.
This was from a bunch of old dolls my niece decided to give up.  It was a Sleeping Beauty doll, and I can actually see why she didn’t want this one.  The hair was horribly matted and the face was very dirty.  Plus she had lost her clothes somehow and there appeared to be bite marks.  So here’s the before…
…And after.  After a quick bath and a not so quick hair detangle, she looked remarkably improve.  The hair was horrible, I had to use twice as much conditioner than normal.  Afterward, I whipped up the dress with scraps of purple tulle and fabric, it’s sewn on to her because I was feeling lazy.  I then restyled the hair by tending to her curls, trimming her bangs, and adding buns.  I‘m not sure why I decided to add buns, just a hunch.  Finished up with a set of soda bottle wings, and she is a perfect little purple fairy.  Some of you may remember the first appearance of the soda bottle wings (see Trimmings and a Angel).  They just work so well for dolls that I had to make them again. 
Here’s the updated list:
  • Pins
  • Altered top
  • Rose headband
  • Doll
  • Bracelets
  • White dress
  • Gift
Four down, three more to go.  And a little over a week to finish.
