Can't Sell A Doll Yet

March 17th, 2014 (03:45 am)

current location: on the floor cushions
current mood: annoyed
current song: Spanish film on TCM

The doll I thought was pristine for selling turned out not that way at all.

With her dress and head off I saw all the pink staining from the fullset outfit all around her neck, on her chest and under her arms. Also around her neck was grey, which was also in the head 'cup'.

I did a lot of scrubbing to get the pink off her. She also looked yellow in areas so I scrubbed more.

Then I discovered her shoes had glued themselves to her feet so her heels are no longer pristine but have little nicks where I used the tiny screwdriver to pry off the shoes.

Selling will be put off while I get the funds together next month to buy a metal bowl so I can wet sand her heels back into smoothness. It will only take a few swipes to remove them.

Yes, I will photograph everything for the sales thread when I'm done because I am brutally honest to a fault.

Doll in question is my Dollzone BB WS ShuangShuang I call Madoka. She doesn't get any attention so out she goes. Here is her bio, for anyone who doesn't remember her: http://onnanobakagaki.blogspot.com/search/label/Madoka

More are on the chopping block. Time to downsize and maybe get some money to pay off some cards.
