As I have mentioned in my last post about Barbie Beach Raquelle, I wanted to find her a new body because her own body was so stiff. The new Fashionista doll in store did not move at all which is a real bummer. I think Mattel should have continued with the posable fashionista body. There were a few flexible fashionista dolls selection on Amazon but they can be expensive.
A less costly option was the LIV body which allows for a lot of movements but Spin Master are discontinuing those dolls so I can't find them anymore in store. They are still sold on Amazon and Ebay but it's quite expensive.
However, I did find a LIV doll at Tuesday Morning and she matched Barbie Raquelle's skin tone! She is a Sophie LIV doll fromt the "Making Waves" collection. Each of the doll in that collection have a different skin tone and wig.
Here is Raquelle with her new body! Oh the possibilities!
|"I CAN MOVE!"|
LIV body can fit most Barbie's clothes so Raquelle won't run out of outfits to wear. Except for the shoes because Barbie dolls have smaller feet than LIV dolls so I'll have to find some LIV shoes.
Since the LIV Sophie doll came with her own bathing suit, I gave Raquelle's bikini to Barbie FairyTale Magic Ballerina Doll Lea, a new doll I bought and rebodied as well!
My weekend is coming to an end and I wished I had more time to show you around the dollhouse but that will have to wait for later this week!
