It is frustrating when we get a doll and we noticed that something is not quite the same as you expected based on the promo picture. I know, there is always that "Production doll may vary from the photo shown above. [Insert company name here] reserves the right to modify the fashion/fabrics, sculpt, hair color/style, and accessories."
I used to read that "warning" and see it as the "exception" but lately, it is becoming the rule for some Barbies.
I have 2 recent cases. Grace Kelly Rear Window and Dolls Of The World Argentina.
So I decided to fix their looks to see how close I could get to the promo photos.
See the result below. I used just some water, rubber bands for the hair and a Barbie hairbrush:
I know out there there are experts and they could do a better job than the one I have done but for now, I'm happy with my results.
