Extreme Makeover

Have you ever wanted an extreme make over? Maybe to the point of plastic surgery? I always thought that I would if I could afford it. A nip here, a tuck there, nip, nip, nip, tuck, tuck, tuck, more cutting, more slicing and it's sewn all back together. The sags and extra baggage disappears and everything is firm again. Then there's the face, No more wrinkles, no more bags around the eyes, nose shaped up, chin lifted, smiles upward with nice full lips. More eyelashes and your eyes just sparkle. You are drop dead gorgeous! Your significant other takes notice of you and romance is in the air and your youth has been restored.....BUT, what if the plastic surgery went wrong?

You could look like this!
(Do you detect, the music from Psycho with your viewing?)




OH the horror of it all! The only day you would be able to show yourself is Halloween! Or audition for Michael Jackson's "Thriller" video!

Actually how this doll came to be, was that it was a round robin trade that went bad many years ago and the gal that made her face admitted that she had simply given up. Ironically she is a doctor, but thank goodness, NOT a plastic surgeon! lol She told me she made several heads and each one was thrown to her rottweiler to chew on. lol Somehow she looks like a cross between Bette Davis and my great aunt Margaret! hee hee

Finally I have decided to perform the magical transformation myself, but I nearly became accustom to the hideous circus look. After the shock of it all, I realized that she really did have character, but I really did want to take on the challenge of a make over as the excitment overwhelmed me more, so with some replacement , putting her lips where her nose once was and lifted her eyes above her cheek bones, more shaping, firming and walla!!! A totally new look!



Her shoes had been sewn on one bead at a time to match her sparkling dress. Now she looks great from head to toe! Somehow I sort of miss the old gal..... Which reminds me of a quote. " Be yourself, because everyone else is taken!"
