Here we have before and after - All in all she now has -
- sandmatted face
- new make up
- boggled eyes
- sleep eyes
- new pale blue eyechips with silver backing paper
- new eyelashes
And now the process.
Unscrewing her face plates
...in which I remember you often have to take the scalp off of SBLs to get the faceplate off. This is so in my case and I begin to cut it.
Sadly while getting the eyemech out (which was the hardest part aside from getting it back in again!) I scratched one of the blue stock chips, which are my favourite. So taking it out... I then sanded it down and put varnish on, like the repair tutorial said, but it still isn't great. I've ordered some new stock blue as they were my absolute favourite.
Customising really did help me bond with her more, as people have said. She is so different now that she is almost a completely different doll, but still very much Dahlia Oz Vanderbilt - though perhaps a bit more sophisticated than quirky now.
Finished! She is so beautiful.
