So I've been watching the revamped dolls on here for awhile and I figured I'd give it a try.
See I have a little COCD (Crafting Obsession Compulsion Disorder)condition so I knew this could possibly send me over the edge and yet I did it anyway.
And it did....
Anyway found my Susie Sad Eyes on ebay in not so bad condition.
Did some research...... I big thanks to "tabloach" anyone interested in doing this she has a FANTASTIC website.
When the doll came in I popped her head off and started removing the hair.
Problem 1. She only had maybe 20 hair punched holes.
Solution. Had to draw and measure some of my own to punch through.
Problem 2. The stupid hair I bought wasn't working. It kept unraveling and knotting
Solution . Dismantled a old wig I had.
Anyway finished her did a little makeup update and gave her a deep purple eye color and Viola.




Oh I made this quick outfit with a felted sweater I had.
Thanks for looking!!!

Thanks!!!
With dismantling the wig about 4 hrs. Towards the end I was fighting with the wig trying to find good pieces. That took forever.
