Meet Hope

Hello! A few days ago I was at Goodwill, and I found an Our Generation doll for $1.29! She was really dirty and had makeup all over her face. I did some research and found that her original name was Sandie.

Here she is just after I got her. I intended to clean her up as best I could.

More pictures right after I got her:

She had nail polish painted over her lips and sparkly eyeshadow all over her face and eyes. Goodwill always writes the prices of their items on the item, so her price was written on the back of her neck.

My first step was to scrub her limbs and face with a Magic Eraser. It really helped and got most everything off. The price on the back of her neck came off completely! The nail polish on her lips was still there, so I used non-acetone nail polish remover on a Q-tip to get it off.

Here are some pictures after I cleaned her up:

A lot better, isn’t it? Her face was cleaned up, but now she had no color on her cheeks or lips. So, I used a lipliner pencil to very carefully repaint her face. It isn’t perfect, but it is definitely a huge improvement!

Here she is after being repainted:

She is so cute! Her name is Hope Alaine. I am planning to purchase a wig for her. What color do you think would look best? I may also give her freckles. 🙂

I hope you enjoyed!

  1. Really? I found a Sandie at a thrift store! Her hair was worse though. I kept the name Sandie. I wonder if she was unwanted because, this and Ebay were the only place I found her name! I fixed her up and now she is new. That is cool!
