First let me say, Cissy resents being called "Basic" anything, as she is far from being a basic girl! This Cissy came to me with only a bit of her original outfit, that being the rose colored ribbon in her hair. She has a new reproduction of her original black chemise.I have paid attention to the most minute details of her original chemise. Ombre ribbon flowers and Tiffany set diamonds.
Black satin ribbon for the trim and the straps, and three black square snaps enclose the back. Her shoes are the original issue with the black chemise. These mules have had the black lace replaced on one shoe. Heel elastic is stretched, so a small tie was done in the back. She is wearing new nylons.Cissy herself has taken a little trip to the spa. She has had new air brushed blush applied and a protective matte finish given her lovely face.
Her piercing blue eyes have been reset. Original eyelashes have a very slight "hick up" in the right eye, not noticeable when her eyes are open. Cissy is clean and has no chews, odors, stains or splits.
She has had 2 split repairs, one on the top of her left leg inside the socket and one at the outside of her knee on the same leg. Her wig is in its original set and has no cuts or alterations done to it. As I stated, she has her original rose colored ribbon tie at the back. She is restrung to the head and arms. The arms are nice and have no rips to the vinyl.
