|Although Cher dolls came in various original outfits, this one seems to be the most common.|
At 12 and 1/4" tall, the Mego women look kind of like Amazons next to Barbie and friends.
|Look at the length of those rooted eyelashes!|
It seems the culprit wasn't always the sculpts, but the paint jobs. I've seen artists repaints of some of the aforementioned Mego dolls,including this Cher, that look amazingly like the real people they were made to depict.(And much more like them than the original Mego paint jobs.)
This Cher looks a lot more like her than you would at first think, when you see the doll from certain angles.
|A lot of the Cher dolls I have seen have had their fingernails cut by the little would-be manicurists who used to own them.|
The hair on these Cher dolls is usually frizzy, and often they have lost a lot of hair, leaving them looking bare around the face.
Tomorrow is Skipper Saturday, and I'll be showing you a special doll Ken got me as an anniversary present.
