I didn't get a doll for Christmas this year. After the convention and the last of the pre-orders arriving, I had plenty to debox. From my 12 of 2012, 11 of them had never been redressed; 9 of them were still NRFB.
I have been admiring some OOAK clothing items throughout 2012. There are some incredibly gifted doll clothing designers in our community. I have purchased a few inexpensive items along the way - just like any collector. I was nervous about spending as much on an ensemble as what some doll cost.
Right before Christmas Dagamoart released their newest clothing line: The City 2013. I sat at my computer and poured over photos for hours. My dear husband told me, "Get yourself one for Christmas. It will be your last Christmas present from me." I couldn't believe it. It took me forever to choose the one I wanted. It arrived just in time for Christmas. When I took off the wrapping, I found that the box was very nicely presented.
Inside the box was a metal container with a clear window, so you could see the contents.
Here are the pieces. Thigh high heel-less boots, a silver braided purse, a gorgeous dress, a knit sweater with ribbon belt, and a little bow pin. The outfit is called "Rose".
Who gets to wear it? Well, the #1 doll of 2012 of course! Here is Giselle in just the dress with the boots.
