Playing Dolly Doctor: Kennedy, Elvis, and Basma

Today I took three of my "new" dolls, members of what I have dubbed The Sack Gang, and made them look beautiful again.  If you may recall, Elvis, Beyonce, and a blonde My Scene doll were all in the mix, and they were all naked.
The makeovers were about as rudimentary as doll makeovers can get; I gave them each some new clothes (Barbie and Ken clothes purchased at Wal-Mart) and restyled the girls' hair in simple ponytails.  However, even the simplest of makeovers can do wonders for a doll.  Here's what the My Scene doll looks like:
Here's Elvis:
And here's Beyonce:
Not bad!  I managed to refurbish three dolls for under twenty bucks.  All is right with these dolls now...except for the fact that both girls appear to have taken an interest in Elvis.
They'll have to work that out on their own, though.  I hate Beyonce Knowles with a passion, by the way, so from now on my Beyonce doll will be referred to as "Basma."  The doll has a gorgeous smile, and "Basma" is the Arabic word for "smile."

Yours truly,


  1. They do look spiffy now. I don't think I have ever seen that Elvis. Is he marked by any company?

    Thanks in advance for your reply.

    1. You know, I didn't even think to look for any markings! I'll look again. :-)
