Question of the Week: Socks? Tights? Leggings?

I’ll be the first to admit that my girls rarely wear shoes. This comes from the fact that I get a little lazy when dressing my dolls – if they’re wearing newly changed dress, that’s fantastic! Considering one of my dolls has been wearing the same dress for the last 6+ months…

107/365 - Need something to wear... But when my dolls do wear shoes, they will even occasionally wear socks or tights. And have I mentioned that I loathe the idea of dragging tights up doll legs? But there are a lot of resources out on the internet with tips and tricks for pulling leggings/socks/tights up your dolls legs. My favourite is the one about baby powder and putting some on your doll’s legs. Why? Because even if your hands end up smelling like a baby afterwards, it works and socks and tights slide up like a dream.

(Please ignore the fact that when you’re buying a bunch of stuff at the store and have a lone container of baby powder, people look at you funny. Oh, and that the last time that you went to the store to do so, the old man standing behind you, noticing the fact that you’re buying baby powder and a bunch of tiny hair clips, asks if you have a baby girl.)

The fantastic thing about having something lightly coloured on your doll’s legs is that it helps prevent (supposedly, there’s no scientific research done yet) stains from darkly coloured clothing.

Do your girls wearing socks/tights/leggings? (What kind of tips and tricks do you have for getting them on?)

    I dislike putting shoes on my dolls without tights or socks. I find it easier to put the shoes on and I think it ties the outfit together. I was going to make a video for my blog showing how to put them on cause a lot of people struggle.

    Got a new shipment of tights on the way in the mail right now 😀

    I just the socks on slowly and swear a lot. The swearing doesn’t help, as such… heheh, I actually quite enjoy it now. I just accept putting socks on will take a while and sit down and it’s quite nice to feel frustrated at socks rather than real life stresses… because eventually the socks do as they’re told and I feel all satisified! 😀
