Asian Silkstone makeover


The doll started out as the "Red Moon" Silkstone, she has had her hair cut in layers and permed in a vintage 1950's style. I also repainted her eyes to a light green with gold flecks, her lips have been enlarged and reshaped to a more vintage style, and her eye shadows have been color washed in a soft pearl to soften her overall look. She comes with the ensemble shown in the pictures. The ensemble includes a crimson Dupioni silk and red fortuny fabric evening gown with a vintage style sweetheart bodice, with Japanese Delica bead accents in the gathers. The drop waist of the gown is accented with a large Dupioni silk bow featuring a large Swarovski crystal broach and streaming tales. The dress features back snap closure with Swarovski crystal buttons over the snaps.  Her shoes are red Silkstone Barbie shoes from Mattel, and feature a flat Swarovski crystal accent. Long black opera gloves are also included, as well as a black faux fur stole lined in red Dupioni silk.   An evening tote style purse made of black silk, and black organza that is embroidered and lined with red silk, features a silver tone chain, and silver lined Japanese Delica bead accents on the embroidered flowers, and a red organza bow. The jewelry set includes two silver lined Japanese Delica bead snake bracelets, a pair of sterling silver drop earrings featuring red and clear Swarovski crystals, Japanese Delica beads, and sterling silver butterfly charms; and a sterling silver necklace with Swarovski crystal dangles that match the earrings. All metal used in the earrings and necklace are sterling silver. The ensemble is complete with the addition of a bouquet of exotic star flowers in green tissue with red organza bow. The doll will be sold with fashion, her original box and paperwork, and stand.
