TNT Casey has fairly thick hair too, and wears a clone culotte dress. All of them have NM TNT bodies and the Francies have their original swimsuits. Brunette Bendleg Francie is quite striking with extra thick long hair. She really reminds me of Shelley Fabares from the Gidget/Beach party movies. It looks like a fan is blowing her hair!
She has nice skin tone, with her nose tip being a trifle light. Her eyebrows were mostly there but faded, so they have been color washed with water based acrylic paints.
Her bottom lip had a rub, so that has been retouched; also she was given some blush. If you don't like it, is removable with soap and water. She has all of her eyelashes, though the inner plugs on her right eye have been pushed in a little. No earring holes or green stains. She has a tiny remnant of her original hair string underneath her right ear lobe.
Her hair has flattened out at the bottom, and could be recurled into the flip. Her bangs are a little unruly; if she wore a headband it would push her bangs down evenly. There is a little dryness at some ends of her hair, but overall it looks pretty good. Her BL body is in Excellent shape and is marked 1965 Made in Japan.Her knees hold 3 positions, and she doesn't have any poke marks or tears. Her arms are a shade off from her torso and legs, they are a little yellow but it's not a huge difference.
Francie does have a small blue dot just above the elbow on her left arm. Her original swimsuit needs some repair; the neckline has come unstitched a bit in front, and her green shorts need the hip seam restitched in front left area.The left shoulder strap needs to be tacked down better in back also, but the swimsuit is clean with no runs in the fabric. Blonde TNT Francie is such a cutie!
She has super silky hair that still is in a flip style! She has had a color wash on her eyebrows; her eyebrows were all there, but had faded some. Her lip paint is all original, and she has added blush.She has lashes in every plug hole, but I think a couple plugs are thin on her left eye (on the right in the pic). She has a pin tap at each ear, and the slightest bit of lightening there, but no green. Her TNT body is marked 1966, Made in Japan, and is in Excellent shape. Her arms haven't faded, her joints are tight, and she doesn't have any stains!
She does have a 1/4 tear behind her right knee, it's not very noticeable. She has a couple poke marks at the back of her left heel, and a 1/4 tear behind her right ankle. Her original swimsuit needs repair; the center back seam needs restitching, and the left back swimsuit top edge needs restitching. The left shoulder strap needs to be restitched also, it's unraveling but still is attached. Blonde TNT Casey is up for any adventure!Overall, Casey has lots of shiny hair, but the pale blonde hair used on Casey is fragile and there are some dry, flyaway strands around her face. The hair in back is very shiny and nice. Casey has a little bit of fading at the tip of her nose, and a small light spot on the upper right (in the pic) edge of her forehead. Her original eyebrows are all there, but they have faded, so they were color-washed. She also has a lip retouch to her bottom lip.
She's missing the inner lash plug on her left eye, and the right eye is missing the 4 outer plugs. She has several poke marks in her left ear, which has lightened the ear. But the paling around the original earring hole is minimal, maybe 1/8.
There is no greening at the ear. Here TNT body is marked 1966 Japan, and doesn't have any poke marks! All her joints are tight, and her arms haven't faded. The only flaw her body has is a green stain at the side/back of her right leg, between the calf and the ankle.I took a close-up of this, it's the last pic. It barely shows from the front; the green area is about 1/2" x 1/4" wide. Casey wears a clone, manufactured culotte dress. It seems too big for her, if you take the back seam in, it will fit her.
If you don't repair it, it might fit Barbie better. If you enjoy the Mod Era dolls and fashions, these girls would like to model for you!
