  • Barbie Reroot!!!

     

    I figure this is the forum to share my project. I bought a Barbie off EBAY (Barbie 2002 to be exact- beautiful face). She came with straight, jet black hair and I cut it all off and rerooted her with a custom red blend I got off restoredoll.com. Anyway, She has a red fro now and it looks pretty good if I do say so myself lol. Especially for a newbie like me. I'll post pics in my album sometime soon. Anyway, I'm really excited and I can't wait to do more.

    Anyone else here makeover Barbies or other dolls?

    I just bought regular katsilk saran hair from restoredoll.com. The hair is straight. To make the fro, you take sections, wrap it around pipe cleaners, and dip it in boiling water until it cools. then unravel, and finger style or pick it.

    I promise pics are on their way!!!

    If you use the method above, you get a fro like the dark skinned doll with the sky blue hair on this page: http://www.wideeyedgirls.com/Rerooting.html

    I took the sections and finger twisted them before I wrapped them around the pipe cleaners so I got more of a spiral effect that I finger styled into a curly bush.

    I'm going to try the above method for my next doll as soon as I find the perfect one for cheap on ebay

    that whoopi doll is amazing on the mystars site, but that Naomi looks more like an alien than the real life Tyra(that picture with the crazy red-orange weave), and the Beyonce is off, but over all the site and the dolls are awesome.

    Wow Cool and I thought all you was suppose to do was cut off Barbies hair not redo it.

    LOL/ Don't be mad. I used to do that too. I was always trying to do a short Halle Berry cut (circa Boomerang). As you can guess, it never turned out right. lol

    Good News: I updated my albums and added all the pics in the "Barbie Reroots" and "Simply Dollectible" folders!!!

    Bad News: The pics didn't come out well .

    I'm lying, they're horrible. I'm usually better at taking pics

    With that said, please feel free to check it out. lol

    MGTGCC, I never thought about selling any before. I'm not nearly as good as some of the sites I've seen. Maybe I should give it a thought...
