You know how sometimes, you'll be cleaning a doll's face, and you'll wipe too hard and accidentally remove all the color from the features that make her look remotely human? And then, instead of painting the eyes back on, you just use eyes cut out from a magazine, creating a horrifying nightmare of a monster to hand back to your granddaughter? Yeah, that's what happened to Twitter user @TashP351's father.
@TashP351's tweet reads, "When your dad tries to clean up your daughters Girls World with white spirit, but it completely takes the eyes out so he sticks some on from a magazine." The accompanying pictures are of the doll, before (normal-looking) and after (something hideous created by a serial killer) her makeover.
We can only hope the doll wasn't actually returned to its owner in that condition. "Here you go, honey, this is definitely not something you should be utterly terrified of, now run along and enjoy your doll."
Twitter also found it simultaneously hilarious and horrific.
The turpentine took off all the doll's features: her eyes, her lips, and her brows. Only her eyes were "replaced," and honestly, she'd probably look less frightening without them.
Note to men: this is what happens when we women take off our makeup. Our features disappear entirely. The secret is out.
