I haven’t done much re-rooting this year and the projects I did do, I forgot to post! Here’s an update on my re-rooting projects this year!
Most recently, my mom requested that I make a ‘We Three Friends’ Stacie into a little My Scene Delancy. Delancy is her favorite My Scene character. She has a whole shelf of her doll case just for Delancy’s, in fact. Over the past few years, I’ve collected a box (and bag) of dolls that need new hair. Strangely, a good number of them are from the We Three Friends line that included Stacie and her two friends. As My Scene dolls are known for their large features, We Three Friends Stacie seemed like a perfect choice for the re-root.
This Little Delancy was re-rooted with White Chocolate and Carrot Cake saran hair, ordered from Dollyhair. While I’ve re-rooted Stacie’s before, I have never tried ‘uneven’ highlights before. While they’re still not as uneven as I wanted, I think the Carrot Cake highlights turned out looking pretty good! My mom added Delancy’s signature beauty mark. Little Delancy will be re-dressed eventually. At the moment, she’s still in the dress she wore when we found her at Savers.
This Madison re-root is the third in ‘series’ or sorts. To clear out my dollyhair box, I started re-rooting a handful of My Scene dolls with lots of different colors, as you’ve seen on Barbie and Chelsea.
Madison has a ‘cacophony’ of colors in her hair, from hot pink to lime green to silver. It goes down to her mid back and is braided all the way through in tiny braids.
And onto Crissy. Overall, we kept Crissy pretty normal. I believe she’s re-rooted with Sable Brown saran hair. (It’s been a while, though!) She used many hanks. I love the dark color and how it works with her dark eyes.
The most complicated part of the re-root was figuring out how to work around and with the moveable ponytail function she is known for. Thankfully, we found some handy websites that had instructions on how to handle the ponytail.
I still have lots of leftover colors in my box of dolly hair and my goal is to go through them by December so I can start 2014 with fresh dolly hair! I have a lot of work to do!!!
