This past week, I received in the mail some quirky and usual vintage goods. First, this "Fashion Pet" from Japan. She arrived mint in box. The graphics on the box are unique and adorable. Showcasing many different ways one can pose the doll. This mascot doll has bendable arms and legs. I believe she has a wired armature body, red boots with one having an obvious magnet underneath, and metal base. The dolls head is similar to Chiko chan or My Toy's Tiny Terry, but wearing a hat. Unfortunately, its glued on. She also has a scarf, making her groovy to the times. The box says, "Fashion Pet", and also, "Fresh Pose Doll". Quite unique if you ask me. She stands about 5 1/2 inches tall. I will be reluctantly adding her to my shop later today... Haha!
Last for today, this lovely vintage rubber mermaid doll. Yes, I found another. Haha. This one, I decided to see if I could change her up a bit. I actually received her 2 weeks ago. I started off with repainting her tail using pink spray paint. That didn't work out well. So, I remove the paint as best I could and painted her with acrylic paint instead. A lot better. I wanted to change her hair color. So, I rerooted her too! Cleaned her face up and added some blush to her cheeks. Some of the pink paint can still be seen, but not too bad. LOL After the reroot, I trimmed her hair a bit, but I may trim her some more. Having long hair makes it a bit challenging for her to sit up. Now, she reminds me of Marina...
Guam is on lock down for another week. We need to bring our numbers down. Stay safe and well my friends.
