A Day Of Beauty

If you follow my Instagram account, you may have seen me tease about two of the girls going out for a “day of beauty”.  Who were the culprits??

Yeah, Allie and Fiona decided they wanted some changes.  It was a gloomy day and I didn’t have anything better to do, so I decided to oblige.

First off, I wasn’t happy with either of their wigs.  Not that I hated them, but I wanted something different.  Fiona’s was kind of boring.  Allie’s was gorgeous, but it wasn’t the color I was expecting when it arrived, and I wasn’t sure it worked best with her coloring.  So I removed both heads from the dolls (yes, it looked a bit like a horror movie around here) and then proceeded to remove the wigs.  It was relatively easy, I used a syringe with water in it and squirted it around the hairline.  I had used Alene’s Tacky Glue to hold the wigs in place and fortunately it is water soluble.  Both came off super easy.  I just had to take a damp cloth and clean off the glue residue from the heads.

Allie wasn’t getting any new makeup, but I’d been dying to try something different on Fiona.  I decided to take the leap, and I think it turned out great.  Here she is after adding eyelashes:

And then I decided she needed something a bit more dramatic on her lips to go with that eye makeup:

Like I did with Allie, I sealed all of the paint with some Mod Podge to give it a shiny effect as well as protect it.

And then it was time for the wig!

So, here’s the big reveal!

Quite a change, huh?  I bought Fiona’s wig from Beautifully Custom when she had her seconds sale.  I can’t find a thing wrong with it though and I think it is absolutely gorgeous!  Check out the curl:

And yes, it does get gradually darker as it gets to the ends of the hair.  I wouldn’t mind having my own hair this color!

Now it’s time to see Allie:

I gave her a darker wig which I think goes with her coloring much better.  It was also purchased from Beautifully Custom.  And if you look very close, you can see that she got her nose pierced!  Before you panic, I didn’t poke a hole in her, I glued it on so if she ever changes her mind, we don’t have to worry about the hole not closing. 😉

Both girls were very happy with their makeovers.  I even talked them into modeling outside.

 

And since I had the paint out and she’s supposed to be my “mini me”, she was missing something…

She’s still unnamed at this point, but I’ve got a couple ideas…
