Creepy But Cute: Little Miss Stoplight Eyes Needs A New Home!

 I knew when I put in her new eyes, she was going to need some wild hair. :D
Perhaps her new owner will have different ideas about her hairstyle. I'll leave that to them. She's up for auction now: https://www.ebay.com/itm/182952822887?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649

I'm working on the other Little Miss No Name's dress now. She should be up for auction by Monday. :)

Little Miss No Name

This week it's a couple vintage Hasbro dollies I'm working on. 

When I first saw these dolls a couple years ago, I was rather horrified and thought their eyes were creepy. The more I looked at them, the more I was convinced they'd be cute if I could change the eyes somehow. 

I did a search and found there are very few photos of dolls online thats eyes have been modified. I guess most people prefer the original look of the doll.

Not me.

I haven't got her eyelashes in yet. I have to go buy some because all the ones I have on hand are too small for this bighead.

I have one other LMNN I'm working on, but I'm going to do something slightly different with her eyes. 

Both dolls had cracks in the same place on their hips. I've repaired them with epoxy, but still need to sand them. Dreading it...:D
