Cut Barbie's hair instead rerooting

The hair was dirty and was cutted pell-mell. I hate rerooting. I decided to cut her hair in 80s layered style.

1. I washed and detangled the hair
2. I cut the hair in layered style
3. Styling with hair curler on 80 Celsius

What can you do with ugly bangs of Fashion Royalty dolls?

We know that the Integrity is able to make correct bangs: 

Why comes up with lot of ugly bangs in 2015? Great thingies are reminiscent of sausages. Brrr!

It is no coincidence that these dolls are very cheap on eBay, they are not beautiful!
Some simple ideas what can you do with these bangs to improve the situation:

(I have tried to cut a normal form from the ugly bangs. It could not be properly smoothing to the forehead because of the type of rooting.)

1. If the doll has a long bangs, it can be tied in a pony-tail.

2. Comb the bangs to the side. Styling and fixing it.

3. If the bangs is incorporated into the hair as separated unit (eg. Alysa or O'Rion) can be removed. Use tweezers or hemostat. Pull out the little groups of hairs. This work is lenghty and tiring but worth it.

Light turquoise, white and silver very fine combination of colors. The beret has knitted of the same yarn and at the end I have made a simple silver faux leather belt to the set.

Mark Darcy Xmas sweater for Barbie's friend and 1/6 scale doll

When Bridget met first Mark Darcy, he is dressed in a fun xmas sweater reindeer on it. Its status as iconic cinematic knitwear is undeniable.

Now I have made the 1/6 pattern of this sweater for dolls and knitted one for my Ken doll. It was hard work, because I had to use very thin knitting needles the fact that the reindeer pattern is still recognizable. On the other hand, I had to knit with 3-5 yarn balls at the same time, it was slow work.

Here it is! I think it is so cute. It will be wearing on the Xmas days by my doll.
