Few days ago, I won a bait Fanatica on ebay. She was listed as used and imperfect doll, so I was not expecting a like-new doll.
I received her Saturday afternoon... my first thought was "poor girl".
She was very dirty, yellowed (especially nose), had lots of scratches and damaged face up (lips, chipped eye liner and blush). Also, there was a lot of heavy glue on and in her head, which caused melting.
This is how she looked like.

I spent over 3 hours cleaning her, removing glue and sanding off melted plastic.
I meant to remove the entire face up, but I though it would be a shame to do so, since she is the original Fanatica. Therefore, I removed the yellowing and most of the scratches, retouched eye liner, added very subtle eye shadow, blush, repainted the lips and eyelids.

Its very late now and the light is horrible but oh well. I'll take some proper pictures of Angel tomorrow. Nonetheless, this is how she looks like now.
