Some repro bubblecut fun
Posted by dollster/john on 11/24/2021, 4:37 pm
I had some time today with my two repro bubbles, platinum bubble from the 2nd edition repro dream house and the silkstone brownette repro. I have to admit to liking the blonde much much better than her silkstone sister. I think that the blonde is just done better. My brownette has some jacked-up hair. It's very choppy...especially in the back and on top. I wish it looked more like the blonde.
However, it's so weird to hold them both at the same time because the silkstone doll is so much heavier and the blonde just feels flimsy, cheap, and plastic. LOL. I thought that I might be able to get another brownette and head swap the blonde, but the blonde has a darker skin tone than the silkstone doll.
