Alazne Barbie

I recently got an Alazne Barbie from barbiecollector.com, when there was a discount, on top of her already reduced price,  plus free shipping.  Of course, I got her with the intention of unboxing and undressing her. 

She was so nicely boxed, I almost felt guilty taking her out.

 While looking for a way to remove her headpiece, I noticed a clear liquid at the top of her right ear.

 It was also coming out of the back of her head.
Getting off her headpiece was difficult (I found out later that there is a peg in the headpiece that fits into a hole at the top of her head).   It required that I firmly hold her head, while twisting and pulling the headpiece in the opposite direction.  Because I had to squeeze her head, more liquid leaked out.
I had a closer look at her head and noticed that it was actually in two pieces. 
The dark area, with the hole at the top, was a separate piece and the liquid oozed from the seam where the two pieces met.

I also had to deal with the tape that was used to hold the dress in place.


I rubbed off what I could with my fingers, then applied talcum powder and rubbed some more.

After cleaning her up, I redressed her in one of my handmade tube dresses.  She is such a beauty, even without hair. 
But, I wondered how she would look with hair, so I had a little fun trying on some of my Kemper wigs.

I also got Fan Bing Bing in the same order.  Because her packaging is so pretty, I think I'll wait a bit before I unbox her.

  1. Ugh to unidentified liquids oozing out of doll heads - not nice however beautiful the doll is. And she is a beautiful doll. I hope you have a lot of fun with her and no problems at all when you debox Fan Bing Bing (who also looks beautiful).
