|No project can be accomplished without cat help.|
The back of the box demonstrates how to put accessories in Gabriella's hair and gives a view of Gabriella in her second outfit.
|Cat still helping.|
|Enjoy this moment.|
|The canonical science nerd has a locker full of jewelry, possibly also a pocket full of sunshine.|
|The scissors quail beside the task that awaits them.|
|You have no idea even what to do with me.|
|Curses! Foiled again!|
The wire is used to anchor major limbs. But sometimes mere wire is not enough. Sometimes the situation requires... extra clear plastic forms to hold things absolutely, perfectly still. Hold onto this piece. Consider incorporating it into a device for dropping eggs off 20-story buildings without breaking them (the eggs, not the buildings).
|A new form of foot-binding.|
Unsurprisingly, the wire leaves permanent marks in the plastic of Gabriella's ankles.
Many wires, threads, and plastic tags later... we were still not prepared for the revelation that the second dress was held to the box by having a corner fitted over a cardboard tab that was folded to anchor it. Somebody stayed up late to think of that.
|When plastic hang tags aren't quite enough.|
|I am remarkably good-humored for a person who's been garroted.|
|How did I even get dressed this morning?|
So with the doll out of the box, we stared blankly at all this plastic and asked ourselves what it was. The plastic stared blankly back.
Here's her hair, right out of the box, freed from its vast and varied selection of fastenings.
|I don't think I've been doing my 100 strokes a night...|
probably because my hair was sewed to a box.
|No dandruff! Thank you, Head and Shoulders!|
|Which way is the advanced chemistry class?|
|Please come sit with us at lunch break. We have fourth period.|
|A strong brow line is your friend,|
|I know to always cross my ankles, not my knees!|
|Cute... yet comfortable for walking.|
|Happiness is never needing to untie that front belt.|
|Still not untied!|
Undressed, Gabriella turns out to have the body of a young teen.
|I even have a good attitude about stripping for gym.|
|No, I don't think I want to go skinny-dipping. Thanks, though.|
|Gymnastics is... sort of okay.|
|Taking care of all this hair would be impossible if I couldn't do THIS.|
And here she is, all dressed up! Gabriella can hold her cell phone and almost get it into position to talk on it.
|I thought we were meeting in front of the clock tower. Where are you?|
|I am secretly a Lego person,|
|Hey Gabs. You look great in red.|
Meanwhile, another friend of Sharpay's showed up.
|Do you need a booster chair?|
