Homme re-root!

Just finished a re-root last night!  It took four or five days to do.  He is/was "Hot Stuff" Cruz from Integrity Toys' Dynamite Girls line.  I never could bond with him with his original hair.  It was just too ... HIGH.  I don't have a "before" picture of him, but trust me, he had the TALLEST hair I've ever seen on a male doll.  Situation is under control, now.  He still has his shaved/flocked sides, so now he looks like a rock star from the '80s. LOL.  Didn't you love those shaved-sides hairstyles from the '80s?  I was a teenager back then, so I was all about the shaved-sides craze.  I'm sure my mother hated it.

Cruz is a tan-skinned version of the "Auden" sculpt, if you didn't already know that.  When that sculpt first debuted, it sold out REALLY fast.  I wasn't able to get one.  Then when Cruz came out, I was lucky enough to grab him.  I had a particular liking for Cruz because my brother has a big, gorgeous mole on his face just like Cruz does.  I love that! (I guess you call it a "mole" if it's a guy ... but a woman would call it a "beauty mark." LOL.)

The re-root was done with "mink brown" saran from dollyhair.com.  Posing with Cruz is "Silent Partner" Romain from the Fashion Royalty Homme line. 

This is the first time I've ever re-rooted a male doll.  I got to see lots of movies while doing the re-root, including "Kill Bill" 1 and 2, and "The Lion King."  Re-rooting dolls is a great way to catch up on movie watching!


  1. He looks wonderful! Great job. I did like the original hair, too, though.
