Sadie – ooak Pippa doll reroot repaint make over

Happy Saturday doll fans! Today I have for you a repainted, rerooted and redressed vintage Palitoy Pippa doll. Same scale as her American counterpart, Topper Dawn. I don’t do very many Pippa makeovers, not because I don’t like Pippa, but because they are very hard to come by on this side of the Atlantic, especially in Canada. No finding them in boot sales around here!

I have a small collection that I have curated over the years and there have always been a couple of girls who were waiting patiently for new hair and faces. This is one of them 🙂

I gave this girl a platinum blonde reroot because I just love that super pale blonde hair! I use a sew in method that is a variation of the lock loop, so I don’t fill their heads with glue. I don’t use any glue. I also don’t poke the hair into the scalp from the outside as that method tends to tear the vinyl of the head.

After her reroot she was parted and styled and given a trim. (Side note: I was sure I had taken some in process pictures but now they’ve disappeared! If I locate them I’ll update the post.)

Then on to her new features. I gave her warm brown eyes with a little black subtle liner and deep red lips. I use artist quality paints pigments and sealers on my repaints. I want them to stay looking fresh and just painted for years to come. I rerooted her lashes as well.

She needed something fitting to wear and I chose deep red silk to match her lips. Her raw silk outfit is a two piece dress. The strapless bustier top is fully lined and fastens with two brass beads ands hand knotted red thread loops and the matching gathered skirt has a silk waistband and also fastens with a brass bead and hand knotted thread loop. It has metal chain and red glass seed bead hem embellishment all the way around the hem.

I’ve made accessories to finish her look. She carries a hard sided red silk purse. This tiny purse has metal wire handles, is lined inside, opens for Pip’s important bits, and fastens with, you guessed it, a brass bead and hand knotted thread loop. She’s also got a chain necklace sporting a small red Swarovski crystal in the center and she wears a custom pair of shoes. The little gold shoes have chain uppers and stacked bead heels.

This little lady is on Ebay right now but only for another day and a half!

La Dee Da dolls are a delightful and fun line of dolls by Spinmaster Toys. Rowdy Shouty Chic! They’re cute and super stylish! They grow on you! They have fab vacations and fun lifestyles and big heads and did I mention they’re stylish?

I just wanted to share a few with you. I don’t have a huge collection of them, but when I see one I immediately want to add her to my collection!

Here’s Dee the “Runway Vacay” doll. Guess we’re going to Agra! Wheee!

Here’s Dee again this time she’s the “City Girl” doll.

I just love her dress 🙂

Then we have Sloane. Her style is wacky…. and we’re going on safari! Take only pictures, leave only footprints.

Then just one more, and it’s Sloane again but this time she’s dressed for the “Fairytale Dance” line as Little Red Riding Hood as you’ve never seen her!

There are many more. I don’t know how many different themes they have but I know there’s a Cyanne and a Tylie Runway Vacay dolls. which I only have OOB. Pictures next time, if they’re camera ready!

“Holly” a Monster High Skelita Repaint for the holidays!

Happy Thanksgiving to all my American friends south of the border where they are no doubt enjoying family and food and fun 🙂 May it be healthy and happy for you all!

I have just finished and listed a Skelita Monster High. In honour of the holidays, her name is Holly.

She wears a nod to the Nordic countries of Europe and their Christmas celebrations with an evergreen crown festooned with candles.
