I was recently lucky enough to acquire a 2007 “Top Model: Resort” Teresa with a big job lot of clothes I bought. Now, unfortunately (or fortunately, depending on how you look at it) this happened at the same time as I took delivery of two Made To Move dolls that I had purchased for rebodying purposes. Fortunately – because she is a perfect skin match for one of the dolls I bought (coincidentally, also a Theresa, the newish sculpt that’s proved so popular) and because together, they make a beautiful, flexible, amazing doll. Unfortunately – because this means that one of my stiff dolls who has been waiting for ages already will just have to hang on a bit longer. Sigh. Sisyphus should have counted himself lucky he was never a compulsive doll rebodier.
Anyhoo, poor old Top Model turned up with pen on her face, so she had to spend a week slathered in acne cream whilst hanging upside down from the shade of the bedroom lamp with her head next to the bulb. This worked out very well, although it didn’t look very dignified:
I was interested to note that Mr Bat pretty much ignored this (or at least, never said anything about it, which I suppose is a little bit different). Have we reached the point where it’s normal and unremarkable to find dolls hanging naked from household objects? Apparently so.
Here are my donor and my recipient before the swap:
What do you think? I still need to write about the Made To Moves (I have two who will be staying/ not to be used as rebodying fodder) so for now, I’ll just say – wow, the posing ability of these bodies is something else. I’m not tempted to replace all my Fashionistas (although I know people who have) and I wouldn’t be using them for rebodies if they were the full RRP of £16.99 as that’s just too expensive, but I’ve certainly got my fingers crossed for a nice big sale on these at some point so I can stock up.
