Best of 2015 - Number 5

I am not a fan of bangs (fringe) on dolls.  Usually it's too thick, too thin, or not straight.  Although there are several very popular dolls made by Integrity Toys (IT) with fringe, very few have remained in my collection.  I have owned and sold Flawless Elyse Jolie, Luxe Life Vanessa Perrin, and even Red Riding Hood Yuri because of those bangs.  (Hard to believe, huh?)

I've even steered clear of dolls simply because they were produced with bangs; sometimes to my own chagrin.  I had the opportunity to purchase Center of Attention Poppy at retail - Big Mistake!   Snow White Kumi and Red Rose Yuri actually went on sale and I passed on both of them.

So, I am very surprised to have a doll this high on my Top 10 of 2015 that has bangs.  Somehow with this doll, it seems to work.  I couldn't believe that Up All Night Lillith was a convention workshop doll.  It's unusual for a workshop doll to be dressed, come with extra hands and jewelry, and look this good in stock production!
Her skirt is made from a sheer material and is pleated like Reigning Grace Eugenia's.  Either the individual who designed the pattern or the cutters completely messed up the hem on this skirt also.  (Quality control people!  Quality control!)

I love the hair color, makeup palette, and skin tone.  This is one beautiful doll!  Had she not had the fringe, she would've given some serious competition for the top spot this year.  Even with bangs, Number 5 of 2015 is Up All Night Lillith.

I passed on this Lilith which is a shock for me since I'm such a fan. I do have her gorgeous outfit though. She reminds me so much of Taylor Swift that's what I have dubbed her. I call my friends girl Taylor :O)
