Best of 2015 - Number 1

First, I want to express my heartfelt appreciation to my friends who have been on this journey with me this holiday season.  It has been written that I have been blessed with a beautiful collection of dolls.  I know that is very true, but I don't have children and my husband and I rarely go out.  I drive an older car and don't purchase designer items.  My dolls are my only luxury purchases, and I do sacrifice for them.  Personally, I believe I am more blessed by friends and those who participate in the blog and my flickr account.  You are priceless to me.

I'm sure some of you have figured this out.  For anyone who hasn't been following, let's review the Top 10 so far.

  1. Evening Blossom Dominique Makeda
  2. Fine Jewel Rayna
  3. Feminine Perspective Agnes Von Weiss
  4. Up All Night Lillith
  5. Out of Sight Nadja Rhymes
  6. Reigning Grace Eugenia Perrin Frost
  7. Timeless Adele Makeda (mold 3.0)
  8. Fine Print Elyse Jolie
  9. Love Roulette Vanessa Perrin (mold 2.0)
If I had to list the runners up, it would include Midas Touch Poppy Parker, Star Power Vanessa Perrin (mold 3.0), Sneak Peek Eden, and Moschino Barbie.

When I wrote about my Number 2 choice, I noted that my Number 1 and Number 2 were polar opposites.  Evening Blossom Dominique is modern, hip, and trendy.  Her short red hair and gorgeous green eyes make her so sassy and irresistible.  

My Number 1 is refined, classic, and elegant.  Even though Idol Worship Kyori Sato was supposed to represent a nod to icon Elizabeth Taylor, Rare Appearance Dania Zarr exudes the very essence of this unforgettable mega-star.  

In my opinion, this doll is one of the very best FR2 dolls ever produced.  I put her right up there with After Tonight Eugenia, Engaging and Intrigue Elyse Jolie, and even Intimate Reveal Agnes Von Weiss.
This is the very first time the Dania Zarr mold has appeared at the Number 1 spot.  To me, she is just total perfection and I love putting her in front of the camera.  She fought hard for this spot against some younger candidates, but she emerged victorious.   Number 1 of 2015 is Rare Appearance Dania Zarr.

Wow, she is beautiful! She certainly deserves the top spot! I always look forward to your top 10 list. You photograph your dolls beautifully and I often wish I had gone for a doll after seeing it on your blog! IT should hire your for promotional photos!

Have a very Happy New Year and I look forward to seeing more of your beauties in 2016!
