There's Something About Those Belmonte Sisters......

The Belmonte's before

and after...

My brown girls have gotten a new lease on life thanks in part to SIS Kara and Chandra. I've been looking forward to this day since I took them out of storage last year. I've counted and I have about six more to purchase before all my old dollies (Well the ones that really matter to me) are articulated.

The ladies posing with their SIS donors
This Kara is so pretty! She is my third and favorite version so far.

Ebay Haul! Gap, X-Files, Plus a new old Teresa!

I know I could probably find much better deals just going to thrift stores (and I do have a list of 7 in my area I need to go to) but I honestly don't have the time. So I make the best of the two hours between getting off work, Mine and the baby's bedtime and shop online. I used to always keep a bunch of stuff in the Ebay shopping cart but I found it never allowed me to enjoy the stuff I had so I stopped. Anywho ...

L to R: Jason Priestley, X-Files, Gap Barbie, Jointed Stacy and  old new Teresa

Arizona Barbie

Arizona will be replacing Barbie. So first she get's studded.
then rebodied with a fashionista.

Teresa update: So the new old Teresa, The second one from the left. Based on her features alone she appears to come after my original. 

Here she is in a fashionista body and some LITDH clothes!

I wanted to see how she looked next to Dale, but the chemistry doesn't seem to be there like with the original.

Got this on a whim, I had no idea it came with so many outfits. I've been on a mad search for Barbie denim jeans so I'm really glad I got this. I love it so much I ordered a second!

Christie is about to get a head to toe upgrade! I've been trying to be ok with her hair because she is one of the oldies but then the Gap doll looks so much like her that it's s win win. Now this hair color/texture will more closely resemble her Layla's.

Jason is really cute! not crazy about the shirt, but the jacket and jeans are especially great. Those jeans are the best doll jeans I own, better than the Justin Bieber ones.

I didn't get excited about this until it arrived. How about those power suits? Well Scully's more than Mulder's.

I was so excited about the LITDH fashion pack. I like the way mattel is leaning towards more everyday looking clothes rather than pink, glittery, and short.

Scully's suit. I thought it would be a more appropriate mayoral look than Sparkly pants and a crop top.

Dana Anderson is Holly Breckenridge's mother

Mayor Nadia Burrell looking very official.

Part two of the Haul will be up in a few. In all I'm pretty thrilled with everything especially all the outfit options.

Star Wars guy and Aladdin rebody

I was going through my "for sale" drawer with the intention of listing two fashionista Kens when I noticed the great color match between them and Dale McDermott aka the random star wars guy. So I grabbed my tools and went to work! 

Standing next to former body. I glued the head on, but a small lost in comparison to him not being able to wear Ken sized  clothes

Head size is slightly larger than Ken. I wasn't able to take much more from the neck

Next to the Mrs

He's able to give better piggy back rides

Mid body swapping frenzy, I decided to give Teresa her old body back. She's now in the University Teresa body, I had her in a Nikki body before thinking she was tan enough to pull it off. She wasn't.

Bad family photo. It's clearly the photographers fault.

Up next! Aladdin. I removed the little purple cap a few months back, but it was time to make him whole. The scalp donor was the brunette Liv doll, thank you dear.

next to former body. These old Ken bodies may as well have been like the Stars Wars guy, I don't need my men taking up that much space.

Even with the color match being way off, I still really like it.

Transplant glued on, filed down and ready for paint.

Ok so it looks like a yamaka, but it's better than what he had before :-)

Most exciting part? He's able to hold his baby!
