Pip Shows Off

Rather than just complain about Pip's lack of posing ability and general floppiness, I decided to take matters into my own hands. . . . literally!

I decided to take Pip apart, "hot glue suede" her joints and restring her with a heavier, stronger elastic. While I was in her head digging about I decided to try switching out her eyes as well.

Although Pip liked the new, brown eyes (borrowed directly from poor ol' Delilah!), she still seemed bored with what was still basically her old look.

She shucked off that fancy schmancy dress and headed straight for a wig, dress and boots that expressed her wilder, more daring side. Amazing what a bit of flexible strength will do for a girl's self esteem!

She's become quite the little performer!

Wow! Her poseability now is awesome! She never would've been able to do ANY of those poses before you re-strung/sueded her!

My gosh! You did it! I'm not sure I would be able to do it with my Bobobie Mei.......
It's really awesome!

Are you sure you're not having too much fun with your "girls"? It's becoming a temptation to get one of my own!

Wow! You really made a difference in Pip by re-stringing her. I love the new eyes too. I think she looks really happy now in her new can see her confidence really showing through! :)
