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!
