Bionic Betty

You know those old plastic snap-together super hero dolls you used to get as a kid? Well, I've had a couple of those in my stash from Retro Art Cafe. And I was looking through my doll parts and saw Betty - she needed to be remade! 


Since it is the Halloween month with costumes, Betty has been reborn into a bionic broad - but don't call her that to her disfigured face! 



She's sporting a robot mask to cover her disfigurement. We were lucky to save her head by attaching it to a transmitter fuse part. Her arm was literally hanging on by a thread 🦾 I think she gets FM radio through her futuristic hat. 


She started out in another era, one that was proper and high society. She wears her jeweled emblem proudly. 


Her leg is attached with screws - that smarts! 🦿



She's sporting a smart mesh cape with wings - she's got the butt I've always wanted 😜


Fighting for truth, justice, and the American way! 


I'm entering her at This Is Halloween and SanDee & Amelie's!
