Holly’s New Hair

WARNING! THIS POST CONTAINS CREEPY PICTURES!!!!!!

At my house we have always had this doll. She’s about the size of a three year old. When people come over they say she’s creepy. (I’ve managed to freak people out multiple times.) I’ve never thought she was all that creepy, but we’ve had her for longer than I can remember. However, she has almost no hair. The doll used to be my great aunt’s, and when she was little she cut the doll’s hair. Very short.

I once made a headband with yarn hair on it, (Which you can see in this photo story Here) but it didn’t look much better.

Mom wanted her to look nice, so she asked me to re wig her if she bought the wig, and of course I said yes.

We were researching Holly, and it turned out the original doll had only an inch or so more hair then Holly had at the time we were researching her.  Holly was also a knock off. (Like an Our Generation doll instead of an American Girl doll.)

We measured the doll’s head, and ordered a wig. I was rewigging Holly for Mom’s Christmas present, so I wouldn’t let her see it.

Holly

Here’s Holly at the beginning. Both of her eyes are getting silver eye, but since the last time I did doll eyes didn’t work out too well I didn’t want to try again.

CreepyDoll

I took scissors and cut her hair as short as I could get it.

Raggish

I took a nail polish remover wipe and cleaned her skin. It got quite dirty.

PegWig

This is the wig right out of it’s packaging.

PeggySue

This picture is a bit blurry, but it’s a dark brown Peggy Sue wig in size 17-18 from eBay.

HollyHair

I tied the long hair in a ponytail so it wouldn’t get in the way.

I just put it on her head and adjusted. I didn’t glue it on, though now I wish I had. It stays on well enough, but slides around some.

Here'sHolly

I took Holly outside for a photo shoot. Yes, she is wearing her Christmas dress, though it is March. Her bangs are a bit long, so I just bobby pinned them to the side.

I really like this picture.

We all like Holly better than we did before. She isn’t creepy anymore.

Happy birthday Kit!

Some of my pictures are on this blog 

http://snickerdoodlestreet.blogspot.com/

You can see them there. 

But here are my pictures on my blog of Kit’s birthday. 

DSCN4284[1]

We were all sitting around in our room.

“Today is Kit’s birthday.” I said. “Let’s do a surprise party.”

DSCN4285[1]

Samantha went to the closet and pulled some things out.

DSCN4286[1]

 

We grabbed things to give to Kit.

“I will get Kit and you rush to the fairy garden.” I told my friends.

DSCN4287[1]

I held up a bag. “This is my gift for Kit. Put your stuff in the bag and put it under the bed.”

DSCN4288[1]

While I got Kit.

DSCN4289[1]

 

My friends put the stuff in the bag.

DSCN4290[1]

And put it under the bed.

DSCN4291[1]

 

I led Kit to the garden where my friends were waiting.

DSCN4292[1]

Then we sat down and ate hot dogs.

DSCN4293[1]

Back at the house we gathered for gifts. Holly ran to get them.

DSCN4294[1]

She came back and gave the bag to Kit.

DSCN4295[1]

A laptop! Now I won’t have to use the typewriter! A headband and wallet too! Thank you!

DSCN4296[1]

Then we celebrated with cake.

The Fairy Garden

DSCN4109[1]

“Wake up, Wake up!” Ruthie yelled. “I have something that you HAVE to see!”

“Fine but this better be good or I am confining you to it for the next week.” Samantha grumbled.

DSCN4111[1]

The girls stood next to it.

“Okay, Turn around.” Ruthie said

DSCN4112[1]

We came in. It was a beautiful garden with a bench, and a swing, and a pond, and even a gazebo! Everything was a bit too small but we could sit on the bench.

“This is amazing!” Holly said.

“You fit right in.” Kit joked. “You are a plant too.”

“I wanna live here like the Hollys.” Holly replied.

“Let’s go show the mini Isabelles.” Samantha said and everyone agreed.

DSCN4110[1]

We went to the Isabelle house and got everyone.

DSCN4113[1]

We showed the garden to them and then left.

DSCN4118[1]

“This place is great.” Dancer Isabelle said.

“It is like a fairy garden with us the fairys.” Normal Isabelle said.

DSCN4116[1]

“I love the gazebo.” design Isabelle said.

“Well I love the whole place.” Dancer Isabelle said.

DSCN4114[1]

Bethany just sat on the swing and watched. I loved the swing, it really worked.

DSCN4117[1]

“It is like a little forest.” Design Isabelle said.

DSCN4115[1]

“I also love the little bridge.” She said

 

I actually made the garden at a program at the Library yesterday. It was supposed to be a fairy garden but I made it the right size for this.

Welcome to the mini doll house!

First of all sorry about the no postyness. Things have been crazy around here. Second welcome to the mini doll’s house! The big dolls have their own house so the mini dolls wanted one too. My dad and I built this out of wood and I made furniture and decorated it.DSCN3351[1]

 

This is mini doll bedroom 1. I painted the walls and the tile is duck tape. I made the bed out of straws, glow sticks, cardboard, and felt. I keep all the clothes in the box in the corner. The rug is a carpet sample and the ballet bar is a mirror with a bar glued to it.

DSCN3357[1]

The rug goes under the bed so they can use the bar.

DSCN3358[1]

 

For this room the carpet is felt, the walls are painted, and the rug is a carpet sample. I made the chandler from stickers and the bed is from a box. The chair is a felt covered ribbon spool and some cloth.

DSCN3366[1]

The wardrobe is made from a box and holds clothes and shoes.

DSCN3369[1]

The art room is one of my favorite rooms. The floor is a tile and I had a lot of fun painting the walls.

DSCN3373[1]

At the desk there is a tablet and laptop. The screens are painted in black paint and the stylus is chalk.

DSCN3377[1]

I made the easel with a real clip to hold paper.

DSCN3384[1]

Ruthie is playing the piano.

DSCN3383[1]

Kit is looking at the rock collection and poster.

DSCN3401[1]

This is the kitchen.  The table is made from a box. In the back I have a sink, washer, and cabinet.

DSCN3403[1]

 

The fridge opens and so does the oven.

DSCN3407[1]

Here is the gym.

DSCN3411[1]

Ruthie practices vault.

DSCN3413[1]

Here Holly bounces on the trampoline instead of doing exercises on the bar.

DSCN3414[1]

Samantha does beam.

DSCN3415[1]

Here is the living room. It has a chandelier and stone floor.

DSCN3418[1]

The shelf hold little trinkets.

DSCN3421[1]

This is the fireplace.

DSCN3422[1]

 

It opens to tend the fire.

DSCN3420[1]

Everyone watching TV.

DSCN3439[1]

Next to the Issys house (More about this in a later post) Is a campground. Holly arrives in a steak and shake car while Kit and Ruthie and Samatha are already there.

DSCN3440[1]

Ruthie and Holly go swiming and two Issys rest in the hot tub.

DSCN3441[1]

 

One of the Isabelles is at the beach table while another rests on the bench and Samantha just hides in the tent.

DSCN3438[1]

And here is the campground with out the dolls.

Meet the mini dolls!

DSCN3326[1]

I have Three American girl mini dolls and an our generation mini doll.DSCN3304[1]

This is Mini Kit. She has a shirt/sweater, skirt and sandals. The buttons on the sweater are real but you can’t button the sweater up.

DSCN3307[1]

All of the mini dolls have rooted hair  and painted on eyes. Kit also has freckles. She came with a barrette but I lost it.DSCN3308[1]

All of my mini dolls have soft bodies because they are historical character minis. The Beforever minis have different molds and a hard body.

DSCN3345[1]

This is her back. The skirt has Velcro but the sweater does not, making it sort of hard to get on.

DSCN3311[1]

This is mini Ruthie, Kits best friend. She has a dress, Hair ribbon, Socks, and Mary Janes.

DSCN3312[1]

Her hair is curly and looks very nice with the ribbon. Her eyes are gray but I still like them.

DSCN3313[1]

Her dress has Velcro and in the back Ruthie’s curls are sort of out of control.

DSCN3315[1]

Someone gave me mini Samantha used so she isn’t in perfect condition but she still is lovely. Her sash is sewn onto her dress and her ribbon was in a bow.DSCN3317[1]

She has poofy bangs and brown eyes. I think that originally her bangs were shaped better and her hair had a nice wave but this is how she is now.

DSCN3319[1]

Like all the American girl minis Samantha even has neck strings!

DSCN3322[1]

This is Holly. She is my our generation mini and is modern instead of historical. The American girl minis also come with books.

DSCN3323[1]

She has beautiful green eyes and whitish blond hair. She also has a hair ribbon.

DSCN3324[1]

In the back her hair is parted all the way down.

The minis are about the right size to carry with you in a purse of pocket for some mini fun!
