I find collecting FR/FR2 quite stressful at times. The collecting community is like jumping into a pool of piranha - so few dolls produced, so many fighting to get one - collectors purchasing multiples to sell and fund their own habit. Sometimes you just need a break and get away.
So … while waiting for the arrival of this springs FR2 collection, I've moved into a different direction. In 2006, I purchased a Wilde Imagination Ellowyne. Her name was Chills. I also purchased an outfit. These dolls are 16" and look younger than FR dolls. Over the years, I have kept my collection in check and only purchased a small number of additional dolls and ensembles. When I was cleaning closets, I found them. Here is a favorite. She is Mistakenly Sad, but I call her Brittany.
I also purchased the first version of Ellowyne's best friend, Prudence Moody. Her name was ESPecially Prudence. This is her photo.
I considered selling my small collection of Ellowyne dolls and visited their website. It seems that Wilde Imagination is now manufacturing their dolls with inset eyes. They were having a sell with an extra 20% off. How could I resist seeing what these dolls with inset eyes were really like for only $70? So, here is Feeling Drained Three. She is a wigged doll. She is wearing an ensemble called Languid.
I hope the FR2 dolls show up soon or I could get into some real trouble. Until then, Gillian is definitely keeping me company. Another beautiful face!
