Doll fixing while cleaning:
Picked up this damaged, unwigged, naked Audrey Hepburn for about 2,500¥
What she’s supposed to look like.
She was missing blink bars…which didn’t much matter as is because her eyes had been modified so they stuck out too far for her eyelids to close anyways.
I’d found a listing on Mercari for two sets of blink bars and two sets of eyelids for this generation of Pullip (three-part head with body type 3) for 500¥ MINE!
I found her generation of eye mech at Dollyterria with some large eye-chips the same time I bought her. 500¥ MINE
Good thing too!
Her body was in good shape but I had to figure out what was up with her eyes.
Ok. Eye-mech broken. Replace and save for items that can be used to repair future eye mech.
Eyes…wtf? Some sort of doll eye has been hollowed out and fitted (and smashed) over the eyemech eye area. This is probably the stress that eventually broke the eyemech.
Useless to me.
With Audrey’s face off I took the time to remove the rest of her face. Her lipstick had been removed by a previous owner.
Then I put her eyelids in, put in a new-to-her eye mech, inserted her new eye bars and reassembled her.
The eye chips in the eyemech also stick out a little too much, interfering with her blinks, so they’ll be replaced when I decide how I want to repaint her.
But there we have another doll ready to face-up when inspiration strikes and we still have two pairs of extra eyelids and one pair of wink bars.
