Retro Dolls US hair matching guide?
« on: January 03, 2019, 06:45:55 PM »
Hello, I'm looking for Retro Dolls US hair matching guide, I believe it was once posted here http://mlparena.com/index.php/topic,385815.msg1656049.html#msg1656049, bur images long since expired. Does anyone have it saved and could share? In particular I'm looking for a match for fading pink and G2 Sky Skimmer pink.
Is a total cheapskate.

Man I don't know as there's so much newer stuff but a link on that page led me here:
https://retrodollsus.wordpress.com/category/custom-my-little-pony/page/3/
So you could either use the contact form or PM Kalavista here as that page says is on the Arena!
Sure the community would love to find that guide again!

I've contacted the owner, but didn't get the matching guide, I guess it's trade secret now. But I did learn that Pixie Dust is match for fading pink.

RetroDolls US' owner is a member here. She's enchantress41580. I'm sure she'd be happy to answer any matching questions you have.

I was wondering if the other day there was a Retrodolls UK matching thread, that would be so helpful!

Maybe we should start putting one together.

Mines are a pretty pale yellow compared to Applejack(G1) and Brilliant Blossom.

I think some of the colours may be the same but they have different names. They do let you return the hair so I’ve been ordering multiple different shades and sending back the ones I don’t want.

However none of their whites are  a match for MLP white hair - they’re not grey/silver enough. So we might still have to order some from the US.

that made me curious now, would you start a color-match-thread? I will contribute if i find something you did not list already but it seems like you know more than me ^^

Sure - I’ve not really ordered many from Retro Dolls UK though but we should definitely start a thread to add to over time!
