Then I found another. Yes, something is going on in the Memphis area.
Someone is mistreating Disney Men.
It's okay, take a minute to compose yourself. I was shocked too. It started when I found a Pocahontas John Smith in the Bargain Barn at Goodwill. He had been gnawed on by something or someone and had a bad haircut.
Then at a church yard sale (a CHURCH of all places!) I found poor Li Shang who had been similarly abused.
So I started with Li Shang, since his body at least was in decent shape. First, I cleaned his face with an alcohol-based hand sanitizer. Then I got him ready for his haircut.
Haircuts are not my forte, so I just gave him a trim to even him up, and gelled him a little. I may revisit if I get better at cutting hair, but for now, he's at least presentable.
"Yay! Look at me!"
I washed his face and decided to tackle his hair. It is a strange texture and I don't have a lot of donor blondes, so I didn't find an exact hair match. Luckily, it was only about 10 plugs in the front that needed to be replaced. I found another doll who could lose a few strands without missing them, and rerooted the front section.
Quick douse with boiling water to lay it down.
And they're all done!
Now that shirt/ pants combo could be considered abuse, but it's all I could find at that moment. Soon enough I'll get them all dressed up and ready to find some thrift store princesses.
