|2013 Holiday Barbie preparing for a well-deserved redress|
2013 Holiday Barbie was one of my doll Christmas gifts from a a friend. I wanted this doll because of the Pazette head sculpt, which was first used on Stephen Burrow's doll of the same name (in ebony complexion). My plan was to give her an immediate redress. Plan completed.
|Cardboard was used to line the skirt of 2013 Holiday Barbie's dress. Tsk, tsk, tsk.|
During the deboxing process, I was shocked to discover the cardboard Mattel tacked underneath the front of the skirt. I call this cutting corners to the extreme. They probably feel most "collectors" will keep the dolls boxed and will never know.
Color Infusion Janay "allowed" Pazette to borrow her tribal chevron-print dress. She is wearing shoes from a Barbie fashion purchased from Target prior to the holidays. (See next photo.)
The clutch she holds was made for Janay earlier this year. (Yes, Janay allowed Pazette to borrow that, too.) Her earrings are her own, but they will be replaced soon.

I think she looks lovely in her borrowed things (not as lovely as Janay), but lovely enough.
A possible additional plan is to upgrade her ModelMuse body to an articulated one. I have not made a final decision on whether or not I will follow through with this, but more redressing will definitely be done.
