Right before Middle Gal's party, my mom found another BFC Ink Kaitlin doll at Salvation Army. This one was one of the fully jointed versions (yay!).
Her hair was pretty messy!
She had her original dress and vest...
...and her legwarmers too, but no boots.
I was amazed to see the difference in the faces of my two Kaitlins. The fully jointed Kaitlin (on the left) has eyebrows much closer to her eyes, which gives her an older, more teenaged look. I think my older Kaitlin (on the right) looks more sweet and innocent.
Since the new Kaitlin's hair was such a mess and I knew I'd have to wash it, I decided to take out her braids.
I opted for shampoo and conditioner rather than downy since her hair seemed dirty and I knew it wasn't the greatest quality anyway.
Drying hair dolly style! :)
Here she is with her hair all dry.
I was a bit disappointed with the final results. Her hair looked great on top but was still incredibly fluffy and dry on the bottom.
She was still a lovely doll, though.
After a few weeks, I decided to try rewigging her. My original plan was to use this doll to replace my old Kaitlin, because I prefer the fully jointed body style. However, I liked my older Kaitlin's face better, and I didn't need two identical dolls.
So off came her hair! I used scissors to get the hair cut as close to her head as I could. After these pics were taken, my mom actually used her hair clippers on Kaitlin 2 and was able to get the hair even closer to the scalp.
And so began the great wig fitting, as I tried to figure out the best look for my newest BFC Ink doll:
This one was a Blythe wig from eBay seller shopoholican.
This was a "Carmen" wig from I believe Global dolls.
A crimped "Alice" wig from...um...I don't remember which wig company.
A size 10 "Rose" wig purchased from Prillycharmin.com.
Hailey's old auburn wig...a "Denise" from Monique dolls.
Emily's old blonde wig...the same style and company as the previous wig.
In the end, I decided to remove the pin curls from the "Carmen" wig and have it down all the way. I really liked this look on Kaitlin 2 (who is still awaiting a new name...and awaiting her fate. I may end up reselling her, but I haven't decided yet).
After fiddling around for a bit, I decided to try a side part with the same wig. I thought it gave it a little more elegance.
Lol...of course, after all this, about 2 weeks later I switched back to the crimped "Alice" wig. At Hubby's recommendation, I used a claw to clip back part of her hair, and it made a world of difference!
I just can't seem to make up my mind! :} Which look do you like best?
