|The Life and Times of Ann Estelle||
Here is my just-completed second attempt at re-doing the face-up on a vinyl Ashton-Drake Effner doll. (For first attempt, see blog entry a little farther down the page.) I am big-time happy at the results for Alice!!!!
(Yes, the body is a little shorter than the original Ashton-Drake doll - I cut her torso in half and put the upper half on one of my Tenner ball-jointed bodies, so she is now just about the same size as Ann Estelle - but her A-D dress won't snap around her larger waist-line now. Well, I figure a much nicer face is a good trade-off for gaining a couple of pounds on one's waist-line, right?!) R.
