|Barbie Fashionistas #90 (Rainbow Bright/Ryan) and #80 (Cheerful Check/CeeCee)|
|Ryan models the front and back of her rainbow-colored dress which, as indicated, is purple in the back. Ryan also has very nice, silky, bone straight hair.|
The back of CeeCee's dress is the same as the front:
|CeeCee models the front and back of her dress. The heels of her red vinyl shoes are flimsy; one heel was already bent upon arrival.|
|Ryan's complexion is darker than So In Style Chandra's.|
|Ryan's complexion is slightly lighter than Model of the Moment Nichelle's. Ryan would be frozen into the ModelMuse position if this body were swapped for hers.|
|Musician Barbie's complexion is lighter than Ryan's. This would not be a good body swap for articulation.|
|Another close, but not exact, complexion match is Barbie Basics Collection 1, Model No. 4.|
|The complexions of Ryan and Princess of South Africa Barbie are also close, but not exact.|
I do not own any articulated Barbies with complexions that match Ryan's unique deep ebony skin tone. I was asked if Made to Move Camp/Hiking Barbie's complexion matches. I do not own that doll but I reached out to someone who does. Dreamer Dolls allowed me to use the following photo:

Ryan and CeeCee Swap Clothes and Model Sparkle Girlz Fashions
|Ryan wears CeeCee's shirt dress comfortably; however, the rainbow dress is a loose fit on CeeCee.|
|I tried the floral print dress with side cutouts on CeeCee first. I like the fit of it on Ryan better. The dress CeeCee wears was a nice fit on Ryan, too.|
|This faux blouson one-piece pants set fits Ryan well. The yellow striped top fits CeeCee, the waistline of the shorts is a little low. If they are not pulled up high enough, CeeCee faux panty line is exposed.|
Of the six Sparkle Girlz fashions, I like the girls in the third set. Instead of redressing them in those, I opted for the following Sparkle Girlz fashions purchased in the past.
This fashion shows off CeeCee's more shapely legs. Ryan's legs are thin and straight.
*If you desire an articulated body for Rainbow Bright Fashionista #90 and are unable to find a manufactured one that matches the head color, dye a body using brown Idye Poly or Rit Dyemore. The brown in both formulations is rather dark. The longer the body is left in the dye, the darker it will become. You can either use a brown body and dip it for a few seconds or a white body and leave it in the dye bath a few minutes until the color deepens. If I were to do this, to have a headstart in color deepening, I would dye a brown articulated body.
I used brown IDye Poly to dye the heads of these dolls.
