while i was rummaging through my sister's closet trying to find a barbie to "improve", i came across this "what's her face" doll, which conveniently had no face or hair, and was super-pale like me.
before (excuse the doll nudity):



and after:

she is wearing my green sweater, a yellow tank top under it, ripped jeans, and my green shoes.
close-up:


and a miniature version of my knitting bag, which can be found here:http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=76555.0



but, of course, only one outfit simply would not do. so, i bring to you:
snowboarding kelly!

from the top:

and in action!

she is sporting a green coat, hot pink snowpants, a miniature strawberry hat, and snowboard boots. don't forget the tiny snowboard!
and the comparison shot:


sleepover kelly:


pink teddy bear pj's and bunny slippers!

fairy kelly!



prom kelly!

yellow dress with a tulle poufy thing, and a tiara.

last but not least, kelly going to a school dance!

yellow circle skirt with tulle, tube top and leg warmers, and my favourite part;

green high-tops!

all the clothes were made completely by me. the wigs were made of yarn, i untwisted the strands for the poufy one and left them intact for the other one. all the items of clothing are things i own, if not, things i plan on owning (ex: prom dress!). my hair is, of course, not that orange, but when it's not twisted (as show in the picture), it really is that poofy!

Had to laugh out loud on this one. I also suffer pooffy long hair syndrome, and I twist it as well to keep it out of the way. Takes a lot less time to twist once a week than to detangle and tame it every single day.

I absolutely loved the knitted strawberry hat on snowboarding kelly!

for the wigs, i just cut pieces of yarn, sewed them together down the middle, and put a piece of velcro on the inside so it would stick to her head. then i just hand stitched it in places so it would from better to her head.
