Look, I'm not going to lie.
I'd never really connected with Marie-Grace to the level I had with the rest of my dolls.
I don't know why.
But... I've fixed that.
For a long while now, I've been annoyed with her hair.
Don't get me wrong, it was a breeze to take care of.
But the braids she had across the back of her head limited anything and everything when it came to hairstyles.
You should know where this is going.
Yes, I took Marie's braids out.
How to describe her hair? POOF.
Okay, so her hair isn't exactly the perfect thing at the moment. I'm not one who's brave enough to try to straighten it, but I've got a plan to try and do it another way.
I instantly felt a hundred times better toward Marie, now being able to do things with her long hair.
As for the next thing I did...
I gave her freckles.
I'd freckled Finley a while back, and while I had liked how the freckles themselves had turned out, Finley and freckles was not equating to me. xD
So I pulled out the supplies I needed and freckled Marie all within like 10 minutes.
She's utterly perfect now.
To be honest, she reminds me of Laura, from Little House on the Prairie. I used to see Marie-Grace as being a person who would be insanely shy, but with freckles, I think I've found another side of her. She looks spunky almost, like she's got multiple personas.
I used to say I was most like MK, but now I'm thinking otherwise.
I'm quiet when I first meet people, and not entirely social in a sense, but once I get to know you, I go completely mental.
I feel like that's Marie.
She's a shy girl.
Who's not shy once you know her.
I'm really happy with the new Marie. I, personally, adore how she looks with freckles, and I'm really happy I made the jump to try and change her. I think it turned out for the better.
Let me know what you think of Marie below.
Also... would you like to see a tutorial on how I did the freckles?
