Barbie Fashonistas #60 Patchwork Denim

I knew I had to own this one, for the lovely hair color alone.

Once I got her out of the box, I realized the eyebrows had been smudged into the hair, and the left eye badly pulled off as well.  I'll try to touch it up with paint, I don't know if I'll find a better one.

I also got a Sparkle Girlz fashion that seemed made just for her.  Despite being a bit crudely made, SG have some relatively on-trend fashions.

I altered the original fashion.  Before:


The darts are placed symmetrically, but look a bit off because of the print.

Saw some of the new boxed and Sanrio Barbie fashions.

I only ended up buying the Twin Stars set.  The prints are only on the front side, wherever it was possible.

The regular boxed fashions are nothing to write home about.  I don't usually care about career fashions, but I might go back for the saxophonist set just for the large instrument.

The boxed accessory packs were priced around $7 at Walmart, but only $5 for boxed fashions.
They're a bit less attractive considering I already have half the pieces in other colors.

Fashionistas #69 Blue Beauty!

I got her, woo hoo!  I'm so happy with her, she has a perfect face.  If I don't get any more dolls from this wave, I'll still be happy.

My only complaint is the face does have a few defects.  There's a bit of dark detritus in the plastic on her right cheek.  There are also some dark specks around the lips, I'm not brave enough to swab it with acetone and find out if it can come off.  It's not bad enough to really detract from the doll.
