So, the rebodying continues, and this time round my body swop victims are Model 12 (Tango) and Model 8 (Mbili) from the first wave. Like her Collection Red companion, Model 8 got a Grace body from the So In Style Baby Phat range – great colour match. Model 12 was easier to accommodate, as she was a good colour match for a bog-standard blonde and blue fashionista – in fact, as you can see, she’s still wearing her dress in these pictures.
While I was using hot water to soften the neck opening, I kind of melted the gel in the shorter pieces of hair around 12’s face – I actually think she looks much better for it. I think they’d tied to style her hair like Jennifer Aniston’s but I just didn’t like these side pieces at all. Thankfully, they are less noticeable now.
I don’t know why but I never noticed before how different the SIS knees are to the current wave Fashionista legs – the joint just isn’t disguised at all. I think their made from the same mold as the first-wave Fashionistas, as they’re definitely more shapely and substantial than the legs of contemporary dolls, what do you think? Here’s a comparison with Mbili (SIS body) on the right and Tango (contemporary Fashionista) on the left in the first picture and (duh) the other way round in the second:
Anyhoo, I’m very pleased to have got another two done, although there’s lots more to go yet!
