I thought my Daniela head might match the Moxie Teenz Arizona body but as it turned out, Arizona was slightly darker than Alexis but still close enough for the second Alexis head to become Franken-Liv’s twin sister. I didn’t have a Liv head that would match Bijou, the “black” doll in the group but I figured she could be a cousin. Here she is in the hat and wig that came with Arizona:
These wigs don’t stay on and the fiber feels very cheap so I couldn’t rest until I made some decent wigs for Bijou. Having already explored braids, twists, and Afro styles as options for my re-bodied Alexis, I decided to play with color and texture in the wigs I designed for Bijou.
The Arizona character is supposed to be a dancer so Bijou adopted a dance pose to show off the necklace and earrings that accessorize Arizona’s ensemble. A single thick braid gathers her natural texture hair at the top of her crown.
I wish the lacey tights weren’t attached to the skirt, but the matching bag would definitely serve for transporting leotards and dance shoes in style.
The low quarter boots are also very chic.
Next Bijou opted for soft, loose waves cut in a sassy bob. This auburn shade complements her green eyes well.
As always the Moxie Teenz dolls come with plenty of bling and I especially like the crocheted cap.
Skinny-leg jeans and high-heeled riding boots with fringe down the side complete the look.
Of the three textured wigs I made for Bijou, my favorite is a wispy shag in warm brown. I separate the strands of four ply yarn and stitch them to the wig cap individually.
This process takes just as long as twisting dreadlocks, but Bijou thinks the results are well worth the effort.
(Here I must confess that I bought two Bijou’s. The second one is awaiting a suitable 1:6 scale head so that she can begin her career as the 6’6” star center of a WNBA team. A certain gentleman in my collection desperately needs a lady who can stand up to him…)
The third ensemble came with yet another killer bag.
It also accentuates Bijou’s mile long legs with pink lace leg warmers tucked into fringed boots.
I love the hat that came with this doll but did not judge her abbreviated denim shorts suitable for public display so for this shoot, we borrowed a pair of khaki shorts from my Kens.
In a pinch, Moxie Teenz can also borrow Ken’s shoes.
If you are an animal lover like Bijou, the best accessory of all is her puppy.
This little fellow is fully jointed and can assume a wide variety of poses.
