Angelika (Fairyland Feeple65 Angela) came back from Angel Toast, and Chloe departed.
I had purchased another Feeple65 body, so was able to display both Angelika heads at the same time, which is wonderful.
The 'new' body came from a smoking household, so I decided to take it apart to clean and re-string it. I felt quite a bit of trepidation about doing this, because the Feeple65 body has a lot of extra pieces which enable the arms to be removed without having to restring them, and the same is true for the calves. There is an 'event' arm for Chloe which has henna patterns carved into it. I do have one of these arms which I obtained second-hand, and which I intend to paint this summer.
With regard to the calves, the smaller Fairyland sculpts often have alternate legs but this has never been the case for the Feeple65 size.
So I decided to restring the body in a standard BJD fashion using one loop of tension string for the arms and one for the body and legs. I actually photographed all the steps in preparation for putting a tutorial upon this blog - but accidentally deleted the photos from the camera card.
However, I want to tighten the tension strings at some point so I will retake the shots when I do that.
In the meantime, here are Angelika's day and night versions; the face-ups are subtly different and one is intended for a "blonde" and the other for a "red-headed" look;
