Dance Moves Barbie

So first off, I clothed my Christie doll. :) I looked at her hair and I didn't want to do much to it because most of it was in those perfect little ringlets.

So I just took it out of the regular ponytail and put it in a lower one and kind of tried to hide the straight parts.

Kind of worked...maybe...sorta. ;)

The shirt that I had was her original shirt. I looked online and realized that she was from the 2004 Cali Girl set of dolls because she is scented. She still smells like suntan lotion.

In researching the 2004 set, I found out that this little bikini was on the Lea doll.

So I put it on my Christie.

Looks cute!

Okay, I bet you didn't think that this post would be about Dance Moves Barbie huh? ;) just kidding.

My mom bought some dolls from a yard sale and she was stark naked. But she is in really great condition! I looked her up online and realized that I had the better part of her outfit.

She had all parts right down to the accessories (except the boom box) and the correct shirt. But she needed something so I felt that the lime green would be a nice contrast. A little bit of funky to go with the pink sparkle!

She's pretty.

And she still moves like a charm!

When I first looked at her in the box, I didn't know which doll she was. The articulated legs didn't ring any bells but I found some papers in the box.

That made it real easy for me to tell who she was and now I had the instructions on how to properly make her dance. And I believe that the sticker sheet goes with her too. Can you believe it's complete?

There are no decals on the walkman so I'm thinking that these must be for that. Or maybe this sticker sheet isn't for this doll at all. With the soda and the bird food stickers, i'm not sure.

Well, the moment you've been waiting for. What is in the package with the cute Barbie sticker?


The original shirt for Dance Moves Barbie! I searched and searched eBay and found this one. It was the one that had the least amount of snags. The material is the same as the bodysuit for Day to Night Barbie.

I am so happy that she is complete!

So, another complete doll to add to my 1980's collection!

The Help! First, should I keep the sticker sheet as is? Does it even go to Dance Moves Barbie? Also in the box was the instructions for the "So Much To Do Bedroom Playset" from 1995. Maybe those stickers goes to that?

Also, the shirt I had on Barbie before the awesome original shirt.

Any ideas? I think it would look cute as part of a beach outfit.

Also, anyone have ideas on how to restyle Christie hair? I would love to make the straight parts of the hair in those ringlets but I doubt that will happen without some major work.

So no more exciting mail order items for a while. But thrift store goodies are in store for this week! I did get the Liv doll along with some other goodies! Stay tuned!

~The 80's collection is building, so exciting!~
