I'm so happy to have 2 Dasias in my collection - one to play with, and one to display. In the photo below, Dasia on the left is my newer one, and she is just a little darker than my older one. Dasia on the right has seen better days. I've gotten the new one just in time, because the band holding the older one's hair in place just snapped and her fuzzy curls were falling. The stains on the upper part of the older one's body did not come from her original clothing, but the stains on the lower part did come from her original stockings. Yes, I know I need to get some Oxy10.
So I finally got to do what I've been tempted to do for years: I combed Dasia's hair! Her curls yielded a nice afro once picked out.
I searched for clothes for my older Dasia to wear, and found that she can wear some of the stretchier Ken tops. In the photo below, Dasia is wearing a Ken top and Russell Williams' shorts.
Russell did not approve of this at all, and has flat refused to loan Dasia his shorts. He has suffered the indignity of being here for years without pants and without shoes, he is not about to go completely bottomless. So the search continued.
Dasia can wear Weekend Hang TJ's warm up suit (it's a tight fit). Dasia borrowed Scottie Pippen's shoes for the photo below. I like it when dolls can stand without the assistance of stands, and this was the only way that I could get Dasia to balance in Scottie's shoes.
My newer Dasia is now redressed in my older Dasia's original outfit. I will leave the hairnet on her head to prevent any hair fiascos. Dasia can stand in her original shoes without the use of her doll stand (which I still have around here somewhere).
If the 2 Dasias ever want to go out together for a night on the town, Casual Dasia can borrow Tracy Turnblad's dress. She can't fit Tracy's shoes however, so that will be an issue.

Thanks again Black Doll Enthusiast, and thanks Georgette!
