Summer is my Ciao Bella tanned Judy, from Bambicrony in S.Korea.
is a BJD made of resin and fully jointed. She is 27cm tall and takes a
size 6 inch wig. She can be a real challenge to wig because a lot of
wigs seem to come in either 5-6 inch, which are generally too small or
6-7 inch, which fall down over her eyes! The wig she came with, like a
lot of default wigs, was way too much hair for such a small head and
really long too. This particular Judy is a limited edition who I got as
a full set a couple of years back, although I actually bought her
secondhand, but her wig, full outfit and boots, were still in their
original packaging, never having been used. Anyway, she is several
years old now and her stringing was awful. I picked her up the other
day and she was flopping about like a rag doll, her arms and legs were
spinning in all directions, so yesterday I decided she needed a full
I took her to pieces and hot glue sueded her
entire body. That didn't take long because she's only little but then I
decided, having checked out the elastic that I'd removed from her body,
that she really could do with some better stuff, something that
actually still had some stretch left in it! So I completely restrung
her too and now she stands like a rock and poses like a dream! In the
meantime I gave her new eyes, these are lovely golden glass ones, and
finally I went through my enormous wig box to see if there was anything
in there that would remotely suit her. I really do have a lot of wigs
but as I said above, the problem is her 'in-betweeny' head size.
However, I found this old Lati Yellow wig which I've had for years and
lo and behold it actually fit her, even though it is only a 5-6. I
think, having been used very often, the wigcap has stretched out a bit.
I'm really happy with her new look, I love little girls with short hair
and I think she looks incredibly cute!!!!
Here she wants to show you how well she can stand now, all on her own, without needing to lean on anything!!
