Kara Gets a New Body and Access to a New Wardrobe
The anticipation was kiilling both Kara and I. So first thing this morning we blessed her with a new body. Turns out the feet are flat, but that is okay. I sort of decided that she could use 2 bodies; one for working in the salon, and one for going out on the town. I have seen a few of the old articulated SIS dolls in a few of the Big Lots, so I might go look for one.
Here is Kara sporting one of the Model Muse outfits. I am ecstatic that she can wear them.
Kara in the middle is sporting her new body. To the left is her old body. To the right is the head I will use to change her up when I need to. As a hair stylist, she loves the occassional weave.
I immediately noticed that the new body was much skinnier. I also noticed that it wasn't as loose as my basketball bodies. I can't really tell if it is the same body as the basketball dolls. When I viewed them side by side, this body appeared to be smaller in the hip area. Maybe it was the body used for the cheerleading dolls. I have yet to open any of my cheerlieading dolls, so I don't know. I just wish I had $1 for every style of articulated body that Mattel has ever made. I would be rich. The body making department has to be the largest department in that company.
This outfit is not a perfect fit. The pants don't come up all the way to the waist. It buttons fine with room left in the waist area. She will be able to rock these outfits with no problem.
I wonder where she is going?
