Off Topic Doll 13 – Totsy

This Totsy doll was another loft find. I`ve searched for information but I haven`t been able to find her, or indeed much about Totsy dolls in general (give me a shout if you read this and you know of any useful links). I suspect my Totsy may have been produced as some kind of theme doll. Her red scarf was tied in her hair when I found her and I think it might have been hers originally; this and the big gold earrings make me think maybe flamenco dancer or something like that. I thought she would suit a sort of 50s bad girl look, and as she`s thinner than the average fashion doll she was able to borrow some Basics cropped jeans (from model 5).

She`s not a particularly pretty doll. She`s got a chubby little face and her eyes are too close together. She is crudely painted. I cleaned her up with the intention of getting rid of her, but I discovered I liked her profile – there`s something so comic book about it. I think I`ll keep her

    That is one ugly doll, if I knew I had that in the attic, I may have had nightmares. I must have bought it at some stage for my daughter Charlotte but heaven knows why. Your taste in dolls is quite wide ranging.
    Sell, sell sell.

    O come on, she’s not that bad. You had those bloody horrible Chucky dolls in the loft!

    I think it’s Esmeralda, because is very similar, the earing, the scarf, the hair, and eyes are like this character.

    Yes, it’s Esmeralda, I have seen this doll into a box in Etsy now.
