Excellent job! You did outstanding work on this customization project, especially her outfit. All she needs is a Gabrielle companinon . . .
How tall was the base doll? She looks like a MGA Yummi-Land Girl to me (they were done in the 5" and 12" scales if memory serves). Those figures were scented, like Strawberry Shortcake toys, and came packaged in cool soda-pop-shaped containers (think doll in a bottle instead of ship in a bottle).
Well! That helps to explain the very potent vanilla smell she had. I just figured it was the smell of vinyl breaking down
. I looked through some pics and I do think you are right...though it was not the Mint girl who started out with the Xena like hair cut. She is definitely the 12 inch size. I even have a vague memory of there being a MGA raised print on the back...not sure why it never occurred to me to search that LOL. Thanks Patraw
