A Tribute to American Pop Culture

Earlier this year, one of our beloved doll dealers retired.  It was very sad to see Mary T's go, and I wish her well in future endeavors.  Unfortunately, when she closed her shop, there was a really big sale.  This is how I acquired Dynamite Girl (Boy) Cruz without having to pay secondary mark-up prices. 

Here is his promotional photo from Integrity:

He sort of looks like he belongs with Dan Aykroyd and Jane Curtain's SNL Conehead skits.  You may remember this:
When my guy arrived, he didn't really have much of a cone.  They had cut the hair straight across.  It was an improvement, but it was still rather high.  I tried to use some BedHead Manipulator and make a faux hawk.  This is my result:

I still wasn't satisfied. His box went into the closet for me to come to a conclusion about what I was going to do.  I don't own many male dolls (hommes), and the Dynamite Guys are a good price.  I decided to get out the boiling water, some paper towels, rubber bands, and Got 2 B Glued. 

I feel like my fella went from 1970's comedy to modern day American Idol.  What do you think?

For now, I think I'm going to leave him this way.  He's out of the box and ready to "tool the block"!
