Jem and the Holograms is an American animated television series that ran from 1985 to 1988 in the U.S.
In 2012 Integrity Toys released character dolls from the series. I have never seen the show and thus have no sentiment and consequently no yearning to acquire Jem and her female friends.
I love l’homme, though, so Rio Pacheco, Jem’s boyfriend, was a given. Problem is, I looked at his gorgeous face online and promptly did the frantic rush to order thingy without realizing he has purple hair. ACK! L
Purple Hair Begone!
WARNING: Using permanent marker to color doll hair carries a high risk of staining the doll’s vinyl. I am NOT recommending this method. Re-rooting Rio is much safer option for getting rid of his purple hair. However, what is done is done and I thought I’d share what Rio looks like with black hair.
