First, please let me share my story and then I'd love to hear yours! Have you ever had your heart set on something and then when you got it... there was just this ONE thing... In my case it was Ami Ayase. I was SO in love with that doll. When I managed to get one from FDQ I was COMPLETELY over the moon! After the wait and everything I got her and pulled her out and her eyes were perfect and her face was perfect and... her lips were brown. I have, I admit, destroyed faceups before trying to 'fix' that ONE tiny thing. This time I left her for MONTHS, and admit I even considered selling her because I just couldn't get past that ONE TINY THING but was afraid to do anything about it. Well, today I did. I very VERY carefully got some Mr. Thinner and Q-tips and pieces of Mr. Sponge eraser (which, in conjunction with Mr. Thinner is the powerful faceup remover ever). I very very carefully removed the brown from the lips and just around the lips. I rinsed carefully with water and let dry. And then I took some pastels and re-did the lips in a soft pink. (will seal with MSC when my order comes in) Now it is LOVE! How can it be that this ONE TINY THING makes the difference between a doll I'd considered selling and one that brings joy to me every time I look at her? Now there's just this one more tiny thing... her cheeks are blushed awfully brown. Maybe in a few months of angsting I will try to fix those too. But for now I'm just so happy that ONE TINY THING went right and I'm gazing at my gorgeous girl, so very very happy I didn't end up selling her after all!!
