I was organizing my boxed dolls and that single clutch Fashionista box was totally clashing with my multiple Basics' boxes. So, I decided to unbox the Fashionista and discovered that it's got a boo boo!
One of her knees is out of wack. I could see before I opened it that something was wrong with the angle of her leg. Why I didn't notice when I bought it I've no idea. The pivot that inserts into the leg is warped and there is a big gash in the top of her knee. I couldn't see the gash while she was packaged because her knee was bent. I bought her months ago at Target when their Fashionistas were $8.99. There's still time to return her, but I'm going to keep her instead.
I have had surgeries and knee troubles myself and nobody got rid of me, ^_^. So, I will just work this into the background story of whichever doll ends up with the body. One of my dolls is a sports physical therapist and this doll can be in the same field or even a patient. I usually put a little ace bandage around articulated Barbie knees anyway when I want them to stand. She'll just be the only one with a bandage on whether she's wearing pants or a skirt.
