After seeing Revamp dolls on here, I always wanted to try it myself.  So, I bought a Porcelin, however you spell it doll, from the Dollar Store.  It was like $5.50.  I end up having problems with it because I am impatient.  But, I love it for it to be my first revamped doll.  I changed the hair size by cutting it, painting the hair black, changing the skin color, lips, and eyeballs, and did the outfit.

Before Pic, she was dressed in the past, please ignore the mess

The second is a close up of the new revamped her.

The third is a whole picture of the revamped her.

O wow, great job!  It reminds me of a Makeover Story ~ such a transformation!  Your doll looks like a whole new person... When you said you were revamping her I didn't even think about you dyeing her hair. Amazing!  Did you use real hair dye?  The last time I attempted hair colour on a doll was food colouring, a toothbrush, and my barbies.  Smiley

She looks so happy to be rescued from that horrible calico get-up she was wearing.

Thanks for the comments, actually I used Paint for her hair.  I was not thinking about it drying hard because after it was painted, I was moving it into styles, and I was like I am going to have to hurry and pick one because it is going to turn hard, oh well, you learn from your mistakes.
