|Cue Fluttershy saying "Yay"|
First, a pair of white flats. I like these the least. I'm not fond of slingbacks, and slingback flats even less. These might be perked up with a little paint on the bows and the soles.
Next, a pair of silver wedges. These could use a little paint as well, I think. Paint the buckles gold? Paint the soles something?
|I discovered a hole in the left foot of these tights. But they're the only ones I have.|
And lastly, the pair I absolutely love: gold gladiator sandals with a slight heel. You can even tell the way I posed them, how much I love these shoes. Plus, they do stay on the best. There are even slits in the back of these shoes to get them on and off easily.
|I tried to be careful to have the buckles placed on the outside of the foot, and yet I failed for the barefoot doll.|
Lastly, while I was trying the shoes on, I wondered if there were any difference between the Type 3 and Type 4 foot. The bare feet up above are Type 4, the ones with tights Type 3. I took the tights off and took some pictures of the feet together for the J-Doll enthusiast. 3 is always on the left and 4 on the right.
The Skipper information, I acquired from the fantastic page Faces in the World of Pink. It's a invaluable resource for the collector of Barbie and her family and friends. The tights look saggy in some of these photos, because they were. They don't have enough fabric to really pull all the way to a doll's waist, plus the fabric doesn't have much "memory." They are getting pretty loose.
Oh, and D7ana? This post is the one where I originally deleted the pictures that I took. I managed to get them taken again this afternoon.
