Kiki and Sami's Redress Undone

Sana, a 4Ever Best Friends doll by MGA Entertainment 2002

When last seen, Kiki and Sami from the Stiletto Collection by Madame Alexander were redressed in 4Ever Best friends fashions, which fit them perfectly, even the shoes.  Since one of the girls "had" to give up the school girl fashion, both were returned to their original clothes.

After finding Sana, shown above, at a thrift store for $1.99 and after cleaning her from head to toe, she claimed the  4Ever Best Friends schoolgirl outfit as her own.  Before and after photos of Sana are shown next.

When found at the thrift store, it was evident that Sana had been very preloved.  She had scuffs and marks on her vinyl and her hair was a tangled mess!
After a good bath with liquid hand soap for her body and hair, Jojoba oil livened up her vinyl.  For manageability, a small amount of SheaMoisture's Coconut & Hibiscus Curl & Style Milk was applied to her hair after the shampoo.
And here she is, so fresh and so clean.
Joined by her new 4Ever Best Friends Sami and Kiki, Sana poses for one final photo.
According to her blue price tag, Sana had been waiting for a new home in the thrift store doll and toy section since 09/21/2015.  I am glad no one else wanted her before I arrived.

    1. Hi Lady LoLo,

      Thank you for the "so cute" comment. No, I just shampooed her hair with liquid hand soap, patted it dry, then applied a dab of SheaMoisture's Coconut & Hibiscus Curl & Style Milk, which is a leave-in styling cream that I use myself to maintain moisture in my hair, also applied while my hair is damp.

  3. She did clean up nice! Were you able to save her original hair flower or it was a lost cause?

    1. The flower was a lost cause. Some of the petals were missing and/or frayed. It wouldn't have worked well with the way I wanted her dressed anyway, so I cut the thread that attached it to her hair and immediately discarded it.
