An eco-friendly artist from Tasmania is giving discarded Bratz dolls a “makeunder” to make them look more realistic. She gets them from second hand shops, repaints their faces with more realistic features and no makeup, and gives them new molded feet and new clothing…

These dolls have been rescued and rehabilitated from op-shops and tip shops around Tasmania. These lil fashion dolls have opted for a “tree change”, swapping high-maintenance glitz ‘n’ glamour for down-to-earth style. I hand repaint the dolls faces, mold new shoes, and my Mum sews and knits their clothing.

My sisters and I grew up playing with second-hand dolls and home-made toys in the beautiful Tasmanian natural environment. I love the satisfaction of repairing and reusing discarded items to give them a new lease on life.
