I had written an entirely different blog entry, but then I opened a doll and got quite an unexpected surprise.
For many years, I only owned one FR Homme - the original Francisco with flocked hair. A couple years ago, I found Rock Ringmaster Lukas Maverick on clearance at a dealer; my best dolly friend talked me into purchasing him. He has been NRFB since he came to live here.
Last year I was considerably surprised by Beautiful Boy Auden from the Dynamite Girl line. He wound up being in the top five dolls of the year for me. However, he is still NRFB. Then I got Cruz. I ordered the Rock Wedding Romain and the NuFantasy Hansel. I seem to have spiraled out of control with male dolls. They have all remained NRFB.
Last week I found Silent Partner Romain Perrin on sale for 20% at GiGi's. I believe that Integrity always does knitwear perfectly, and I had admired this doll's sweater.
