curing back vampires, one at a time...

From my last doll purchase, I was able to get two of the dolls from the Dracula and HisBrides Eternal Love Collection. I got Lucy and the Contessa. Lucy was the redhead with the peachy pink lips, while the Contessa was the blonde one with icy green eyes. I know these brides were released to wear couture stuff, but it pains me to see their Transylvanian locks and nasty fangs. I wanted them to look like modern girls.

So, after a very brief research on how to relax doll hair, I sent Lucy to my kitchen sink. Only Lucy, for now, since she seemed easier to cure back to human form with her peachy pink lips and normal-ish eye makeup (the Contessa had plum-ish lips and light-green eyes that almost scare me). Armed with a kettle of boiling water and a glass of cold one, I started to transform my darling vampire to the French redhead I want her to be. Then after drying her hair, I started cutting it medium-length. Cut, snip, clip, and VOILA, here now is the new Lucy.

Then Lucy, now Anais...
Still looks like she's gonna consume you, huh?

                                                
While I still couldn't find the perfect character for the contessa, i'm so looking forward to make fierce outfits for this fierce redhead.
