Here is the Tinker Tailor Allan head I got wearing pieces of the vintage outfit Dreamboat that I bought on the crappy Ebay Allan. Most of the pieces were there, but I had to fix up a few seams and such but yea.

The original shirt was missing so I put the homemade shirt I got from my third Allan since the print suited the olive greens of the outfit. I’m tempted to remove the buttons though since they look way out of scale tho…

I may keep this Allan mostly intact since his head yellowing isnt too bad, and that hey, since his face was applied by hand he manages to look different enough to my other Allan dolls.

These gals (and others) are leaving for their new homes today—thought I’d take some last pictures here =)

If I remember correctly, Hazel will be joining her sister (but I may not be remembering correctly—I know I already mixed up names—sorry about that!)

I finally got a bottle of methylated spirits to wipe off that gross sticky paint job my most recent Allan came with since I wanted to dye him but keep as much of his original paint as possible. As you can see, he’s missing a lot of hair paint and a chipped eyebrow, as well as how yellow his face is 

Ah well, I’m sure he’ll look a bit better with a dye job and a make over…

I’m currently at my boyfriend’s house and you know, he happens to have a backyard that looks nice to take photos in so have some pics of the Ebay Allan I brought with me.

If anyone can see, my newest (shirtless) Allan was the yellowest face despite one of the more expensive ones I’ve got. I really wanna try dyeing him to be African American but eh I’m really just saddened by him.
