The "What If?" Doll Gets a New Hairdo - Part 2

Hi! I'm checking in with another "What If?" doll update. Last time, I shared my adventure in rooting extra hair for my Abbey Bominable doll. Well, I finally finished the rooting and placed glue (Aleene's OK to Wash It) inside her head and left it to dry.

Tonight, confident the glue must've dried by now, I trimmed her hair, wet it, and rolled it with straws and mini bobby pins. I was all set to reattach her body before dipping her head in almost boiling water. But when I squeezed her head a bit, glue oozed to the surface of her neck hole. *sigh* I must've used too much glue.

Anyhoo, I'll let it dry some more then do the boiled perm. After that, I'll begin her face up. In the meantime, here are some progress pictures:

Time to remove factory paint.

I rinsed her face with water.

All rolled up!

I hope you enjoyed the work in progress pictures. If you have any questions about my process, please feel free to ask in the comments below. I hope to be back soon with pictures of Abbey's new hairdo...if only that silly glue would dry!

Dolly hugs,
