Here is her promotional photo from Integrity Toys. There was "something" about her. I thought her hair was a little "too poofy on the crown", her skin maybe a little too pale, her price a little too high for a doll in a basic dress. But I trusted my instincts. Something told me this was going to be a stellar doll.
When I got her out of the box, I had to wipe her dress with a wet cloth because there were "white" stains from the product they used on her hair. The hair needed washing as well. When I was finished, I took my first close up of that beautiful face. I love a brunette with big brown eyes.
Anyone who knows me would be surprised by how much I like this doll. I dislike dolls with side-glancing eyes. Being a teacher, it drives me crazy when pre-pubescent girls roll their eyes at me. I just want to walk away screaming. BUT ... it works on this doll. Adds to her sex-appeal. I knew this doll could not stay on the body that she arrived wearing. She is on a Dynamite Girl torso with NuFace arms and legs. She is now sporting a "full-figure" body donated by Spring Forward Eugenia. I think it suits her. She is now a real sex kitten.
Chaundra tells us "It twirls, girl! You can invite friends over and go for a ride! Speaking of friends, here is Toni. She is holding one of the alligator clips to show you."
"Now when you clip this on the dress, make sure you clip it on the back ... otherwise it will leave one ugly mark on the front. You can't even STEAM it out. Very unsightly in photos. But clipped on the back, no one knows!"
"... And becase these little clips cost money, and we like to watch that stuff around here, you can clip two dresses back to back. The carousel comes with a package of clips"
"Let's welcome my friend Steffie ... She is showing us that you can use the clip it with a plastic dress form. That way you don't have to worry about damaging your clothing at all. Hmmm... I didn't know we even had this dress. Spring's coming!"
" .. And if you run out of clips, you can buy some more (they are about $7 for a package of 40). Or you can even use some of the coat hangers you already have. Most of them work too!"
"If you want to keep complete outfits together, like with their shoes, purses, jewelry, etc., you can put everything in a sandwich bag and clip it! That's the blue suit I wore in the last blog!"
"So that ends our demonstration of how we keep our clothing organized. Does anyone else have ideas to share? We'd love to hear. Next time, we'll look at shoes, props, and other clothing items. See you later, alligator clip! Ha! Ha! Sometimes I crack myself up."
