Zara called Cassandra early in the morning on Saturday to ask if she could borrow her notes from science class. They were supposed to be having a big test on Monday, and Zara was concerned that maybe she had missed something. About noon she turned up at the house. When Zara arrived, she had someone with her.
The two girls giggled.
“Oh my gosh! Abby, you changed your hair! It looks great, I love the new color and cut.”
The three girls chatted about Abby’s new do. Abby explained that she wanted something completely different and also wanted it shorter as it would be easier to take care of and wear for different gymnastic and equestrian competitions.
Well gang, what do you think of Abby’s transformation? Getting the wig off was a bit interesting. I figured it would come off easily since she is a few years old, but I couldn’t have been more wrong about that. The only good part is it was properly glued (around the edges and a spot in the center), unlike when I removed Fiona’s original wig. By the time I got it off, I felt like I’d had my workout for the day!
Abby’s new wig is the one I removed from Fiona when I got her, she is a #64, and currently the only doll in AG’s Truly Me line to have black hair. It has a few brown highlights in it, but not many. Here is a comparison shot of her and Cassandra (a #40) so you can see the color difference. According to the AG website, a #40 is supposed to have dark brown hair. There is definitely a difference. I think the fact that it’s such a different color makes Abby very unique now!
Currently Abby’s wig is only tacked in place. I want to see how much I like it as time goes by before I glue it down more securely. Because it’s an AG wig it fits very well, so I’m not concerned about it shifting. When I first put it on to see if it was what I wanted to use, I almost decided not to glue it at all, but thought better of that. I did use Tacky Glue, so if I change my mind, it will be easy enough to get it off. I looked at another wig from the same person I purchased Fiona’s from, but I really didn’t feel like spending that much money, and once I tried this one on her, I decided to stick with what I had on hand. I already have enough money in the Abby/Jenny project as it is!
I think Abby looks adorable with this new do!
