Did you have a pleasant weekend? I was mostly at home enjoying my time off from work. I took the kids to the park and we also went to the restaurant but it was otherwise a quiet and calm weekend.
I did however stop by the Dollar Store (where every item is priced at $1) and I found Best Friends Club Ink Fashion Packs. There were five different sets. I bought the following three.
You can see on the back of the package the five different outfits with the BFC ink dolls. I didn't see any dolls in the store. They were released years ago by MGA Entertainment (the same company that produces Bratz dolls and Moxie Girlz dolls) but are now discontinued. The fashion packs shown here are for the small size dolls, not for the 18 inches dolls which were also called BFC ink dolls.
I don't own any BFC ink dolls but I bought the clothes for my small size dolls. I opened the pink outfit. I chose to buy this one because it has a nice pink top with tiny white polka dots, ruffle collar, and long sleeves with flower prints. Also in the pack was pink hot pants (or very short shorts) with a pink belt and silver clasp. A backpack, pink and white striped knee socks and purple sneakers complete the outfit. The top and shorts have velcro closure in the back. I tried the garments on a few dolls.
The first to try is a Stacie doll from Mattel. She is one of Barbie's many little sisters. It was a little difficult to dress her up because of her right arm's bent position. The socks kept snagging over her legs while I was dressing her up. The shoes are way too big for her.
The top looks great on her but the shorts are too big although you can hardly notice from the front.
From the back, it's another story!
The backpack is really cute and does open and close with a velcro stripe on the top. However, the back and side pockets do not open.
I found this Stacie doll at a garage sales. She was disheveled and naked when I got her. She seems quite happy to finally have some clothes!
Next to try the outfit is Hina-chan who shares the same body as Licca dolls. It was a breeze to dress her up! Licca dolls have such smooth body so clothes literally glide over their limbs! The shoes are still too big.
The back shows how tight the top is for her. I could not close it completely.
Next in line is another of Licca's friend, Maria-chan but with Obitsu 23 cm body.
My photos do not do any justice to this beautiful doll. She has strawberry blonde hair (that can apparently change color if you wet or heat them up... but I have not tried yet!) EDIT: her hair actually curls but does not change color! I found the LINK HERE that shows the different hair styles! The Licca doll that can change hair color is THIS ONE. Takara has released a few other Licca dolls with the same hair color change ability.
I bought her head without a Licca body. It was cheaper that way (only $5 as opposed to $35 for a full body doll) and I wanted to try an Obitsu body anyway! The BFC ink clothes fit the Obitsu 23cm very well.
The back closes perfectly for both the top and shorts. The socks and shoes fit her well too.
The last doll to try the outfit is a Licca doll but with an Azone Pure Neemo S Body. As it was the case with Maria-chan, I bought her head only and purchased a different body type that I wanted to try out for my dolls.
The top fits but the shorts were too small for Pure Neemo "fatter" legs. The shoes fit perfectly though. I gave her a skirt from the Re-ment Summer Clothes Collection.
The back velcro closes well without any problem.
Overall, I would say that I am extremely happy with the Best Friends Club Ink Fashion Packs. They are so well made and super affordable! For $1 only, I got an entire outfit with shoes and bag included! They can fit many dolls and you can mix and match with other outfits!
I wished MGA Entertainment still produced the dolls who look really cute from the pictures I saw on the flyers included in the fashion packs. There was also an iron-on picture in each pack.
I regret not buying the other two fashion sets so I'll probably go back to the Dollar Store tomorrow to get them now that I know they can fit so many of my dolls.
