Barbie Basics #13 rerooted in eggplant purple

Here's a quickie. I finished up this reroot I had left unfinished for probably a year. There's a reason I can't cash in on my rerooting skills. The color is Katsilk nylon 825. Restore-Doll's photo color is accurate, mine is way too blue for some reason. The color has a lot of red in it, so much that it stained the inside of the neck hole while I was working with it.

825 is a nice color, it looks almost black under artificial lights.  In sunlight, it almost glows, despite being a dark color.  Direct sunlight isn't the place to display dolls, unfortunately.

I love the color on her, it matches her face paint very well!

Thanks! I tried to match it up with that lovely eyeshadow.
