    Do the hands for RED come off?

    I would need to remove the hands of my doll to get her arms safely into one of her gowns- but they seem to be strung very tightly and I don't see any obvious hook- are the hands removable? I'm sure someone knows?

    Do the hands for RED come off?

    NO it is nearly impossible to get them off. They do not have hooks. The string goes through her torso and is very difficult to reach. I once thought I would unstring my doll, but the way it is tied you can't even undo it without cutting the elastic. Not worth it IMO. In 5-8 years when the elastic degrades I'll think about redoing it.

    I don't want to even think about restringing her!! I will have to find a professional when the time comes. I would just DIE if I hurt her!

    Oh darn- well thank you so much for telling me- I will stop tugging at them!

    It does make it hard to put her arms into narrow sleeves though !

    I wonder if the same repair services Marina offers for her porcelain dolls are available for her resins.

    I have the vaguest recollection this came up at some point, I think the answer is no?

    I am just going to stick to sleeveless dresses and gowns, as it is much safer, so you don't damage her hands or fingers.
