Chris was produced by Mattel in the U.S. between 1967 and 1971, and longer in other countries.
She came as a brunette or a blonde. Most of the brunettes have hair that has oxidized over time to various shades of auburn. Today's Chris is one of the few who haven't oxidized.
|This is probably the most accurate picture of her hair colour.|
She's wearing Tutti's Flower Girl fashion from 1968-69.
Flower Girl consists of the dress,head band, white bow flats,and bouquet.
|Her hair looks a bit auburn here, but it isn't really. It's nice and dark.|
I was shocked and upset today when I took her out of my glass case and discovered that her head had started to yellow. I've seen this problem before with my childhood Buffy, so I immediately popped poor Chris's head off. Sure enough the wires that make her body poseable that were sticking up out of her neck knob had started to rust. I was furious! This Chris was so beautifully pink. Somehow she has gotten dampness in her body and her wires are rusting. Looking her over I saw that she also had spots on her leg and her arm. I will need to rebody her with a good body. For today's pictures she stole (No. Borrowed.) the body of one of my blonde Chris's.
Luckily I caught her before she was ruined.But she was sooo pretty and pink!
Chris fit her photo shoot in between rain showers. The rain keeps coming and the corn keeps growing. I'm the impatient type. I have planted this corn and I want to see results NOW! Waiting for vegetables to grow drives me crazy. "A watched pot never boils" as the saying goes. But does watched corn grow? It better, or I'll end up with nothing, because I'm sitting on this corn like a mother hen! I have lots of small tomato plants too, and a couple of big ones, but only two lonely little blooms that will hopefully grow into some big fat tomatoes.
See you tomorrow for another doll.
