Adding some more photos of our Mattel-era #2 to this thread. As always, vinyl skin tones can vary and this version of the doll is much darker than the current medium-toned dolls. My #2 portrays a character of Greek heritage who family was evacuated from Istanbul as part of the 1923 population exchange between Greece and Turkey. I think her medium skin tone works for the ethnicity I've assigned her, but this doll has very versatile looks and can portray any character one wants. I am not a fan of the thick bangs personally, but this #2 was a TLC that I restored with the wig from another #2, and that's just how the those wigs were at the time. I do like how swingy the hair is, and I tend to brush the bangs a bit to the side so they aren't so chunky.
