Transforming Trent

Do you know Trent?
In the Gene Marshall doll story,
Trent was the leading man.

I am not sure how many versions
were made.
This is mine.

When I play with dolls, it is not usually
to act out a story.
I like to design costumes.

In this case, I used some fake fur
and some tacky glue to transform his looks.  :)

Folksy Ariel

I don't remember where I got
my Ariel doll.

To be brutally honest, I was disappointed
in Disney's version of The Little Mermaid.

The whole point of the story
is to be yourself.

In the original, the little mermaid
was rejected, having changed herself
at great cost, only to fail.

A "happy" ending to this tale?
(pun intended)

How Disney!

I like her in this folksy outfit
which was supplied by a porcelain doll.
(I think the "donor doll"  was broken.)

Lady Doll

This Tonner doll, Antoinette,
was repainted by Laurie Lenz.
Laurie gave her a name
which I shortened to "Meadow."
She is wearing clothes donated by a thrift store
porcelain doll.  :)
