The ModelMuse Barbie body is one of my least favorites because of its frozen model pose. My dolls need to move.◦
Die Another Day Barbie (Halle Berry)
After purchasing the Die Another Day Barbie with the Halle Berry head sculpt, I was forced to do my first head swapping on a non-pink box Barbie.
Halle and the beheaded Alexis
The prime body donor was Liv's Alexis, specifically the one I picked up at a local thrift store last month. I used a blow dryer to loosen the vinyl which made the head easily removable. I did not have to use the same technique with Halle's head because the vinyl is much softer than Alexis's.
Halle's head on Alexis's body -- what tiny feet she has
After the body transplant, I took photos of Halle in her original orange bikini. It fits the Liv body, but the upper-inner thighs have a wide groove that the bikini does not cover. I had another outfit in mind for Halle anyway.
I purchased (for the outfit) the redhead PopLife Barbie a couple of months ago. The doll and box have since "moved" to Poland (thanks to eBay). I kept the fashion and the chair.
It fits Halle (or Alexis's) body well. I was surprised the boots fit the flat feet on Alexis's body, but they do. If posed properly, the new Halle can even stand without the assistance of a doll stand, but the pink chair will come in handy.
Since I have no use for the ModelMuse body, I listed it and the doll stand on eBay.
