As a doll collector, you come to realize that "perfection" is truly rare in production dolls.
Like everyone else, I have purchased a production doll even though I did not like the ensemble. I have also purchased a production doll because I love the ensemble but dislike the doll. I am now faced with a serious dilemma. There is a production doll for which I don't like either the doll or the ensemble, but I need the body because it is a perfect tone match for several of my favorite dolls. I just can't justify such an extravagance, but I know I have to bite the bullit if I am to up date some of my older dolls.
Last year I purchased Vivid Encounter Adele Makeda.
