A bit of body swapping!

Back in the summer I bought a brunette Gregor head from Ronny with the intention of using him for rerooting practice.  Ronny told me that he'd had a bit of a hair cut but his hair wasn't falling at all.  I thought that when he arrived, I'd remove his existing badly cut hair and practice on him before starting on my bald Sasha.

Ahh but as we all know, the best laid plans....so the Gregor head arrives and even with his untidy hair I can see he is handsome.  His eyes are beautiful, a very hazel brown, and soooo dreamy!  How could I not immediately fall for his roguish charms!!  So me being me, I put him to one side and started straight away rerooting my bald Sasha....no trial runs for me!!! 

In the meantime, Gregor head has sat around...well as much as you can 'sit' without a body...and just looked handsome.  But I kept looking at him and thinking that I really must get him a body, and wondered if there was anyone in my collection who could do without theirs!  And once the seed was sown, well I just kept thinking about it...and so today, Jojo, my mid 70s blond girl, became 'just a head' and the Gregor head now has a body!!  I know I'm naughty to do that to her but she is my least favourite and hopefully I'll put her head on Ebay for someone else to love!! 

So Gregor has become Emilio!  He is currently wearing a sock on his head to try flattening his unruly hair, but if you squint at the photo you can almost imagine he is wearing not a sock, but a nice black Dollydoodles beany!!!  OK, so you need a very vivid imagination!!!

And yes, those are little eyelashes that you can see, but I just pencilled them in carefully so that I could see what he'd look like as a girl....I've since removed them!

Tomorrow he will hopefully get an outfit of his own!







What do you think?  Isn't he gorgeous?

    How brave of you to put his head on another dolls body! I would never have thought to use a different dolls body! His sock 'hat' does look like a beany and we would not have known if you had not told us :)
    Looking forward to seeing him in his own clothes and without the added lashes ... :)

    1. Thanks Dee, I'm so glad that I got him because I really do like his face!
      The lashes are off, but the sock didn't do the trick, his hair is a little wild!! So it will be part of his personality I guess!
      It was hard getting the darn body off the other doll, Sasha has such a hard head!!!!!

    1. Awww Penny you're very sweet, but surely the profits from dolly clothes are so tiny as it is, you shouldn't be giving them away.....but I do love what you have in your shop, very nice indeed!! Thank you!

  5. Emilio is a very sweet looking little fellow! I love his outfit too... I wouldn't have even realized the hat was a sock if you hadn't said so!

    1. Thanks so much Randomfish. The outfit is a bit of a mish mash, but I'll make him something just for him very soon! These dolls are every bit as demanding as the BJDs!! LOL on the sock....it didn't work anyway!

  6. Oooh WOW! He's amazingly handsome, Sharon! No wonder you gave him a body! Can't wait to see more of him soon. Well naughtiness is a relative term, I think:D In the bjd world that is quite common place but I guess in the Sasha world, you may have created a precedent:) Is The Head the blonde girl who visited your hairdresser?

    1. Thanks very much Nikola! No, the head is the new one from the mid 70s, probably about 75/76. I got her on ebay and liked her but I liked him better, hence the swap!

  7. I think that he looks perfect as he is in that outfit.......BUT glad to hear that the eye lashes have now been removed!
    Loving the brown outlines around his eyes.

    1. Thanks very much Kendal. Yes, the eyelashes were just an experiment and done with ordinary lead pencil which I just rubbed off very easily. I was just sort of wondering what he'd be like as a girl, but have to say that I really do prefer him as a boy. He is a bit of a bad boy I think!
