This is the Mandy with less hair. You can buy Mandies from Pound-shops, £1 for two dolls, they each have slightly different hair, tokenistic clothing and identical forced grins. There's nothing sexy about them, even when they're only dressed in a few shreds of wire and lace, but they always look like they are hoping for a better world. I made her into a fairy by the addition of the wings and tail from a broken old bird glider.
