Now those who know me, know that I am usually a staunch advocate for leaving the boys as boys! I always think they look a bit 'wrong' as girls....however I have a confession....I now have my first girl who was a boy...although he was only a boy for a less than a day here.
I bought a smashing Gregor who was listed as having non-falling hair. Someone also asked the question and it was again confirmed he had non-falling hair. I decided to go for him as he was a good price and I thought he was gorgeous and I do have a soft spot for the boys! Of course I forgot to factor in the damn Customs Pirates - who again did their dastardly deed and held him to ransom!
He duly arrived WITH falling hair. I was so disappointed, plus it felt like it needed a good clean so I thought I would try giving it a gentle wash. BIG MISTAKE! His hair came out in handfuls!!!
A lesson learned.
1. Never wash Henry's hair. (Sadly his is falling as well now)
2. Never wash the hair of a doll with falling hair.
Anyway what to do with my gorgeous 'now bald' lad?
I had a wig that I'd bought for Peggy Sue my Schoenhut Miss Dolly that I never used as she looked hideous in it, so thought I would try it on him - never suspecting that I would like it or that it would look okay. But I think it will do for now.
Daniel, is now Danielle, or Danni.
His/her stringing is also incredibly loose, so I have done a temporary tightening job for now until I either send Danni to Brenda to restring, or attempt to do it myself.
Such a lovely face.
Shame about the stray hair - they always manage to get in the photos!
Disaster and tears averted...not all was lost.
I think until I find another wig, this one is okay.
What do you think?
