Happy World Doll Day!

14 Jun

I’ve had some rl things to do just recently, so World Doll Day has caught me on the hop. I originally found out about this from Confessions of a Doll Collector’s Daughter, and I think its a lovely idea.

This year, all I have had the time and energy to do is get together a little group of dolls for photographs – I suppose in future I might do a giveaway or a swop if anybody is interested. Anyway, left to right, my featured dolls are:

* Sea Holiday Midge – I just love this doll and don’t do enough with her. The brown hair and green eyes makes her a very unusual Midge indeed. I just wish she didn’t have the “two bent arms” body type, which I don’t like at all. In fact, I am considering a rebody for her.
* (sitting) The very first Lea ever, Amazing Nails Lea.
* An unidentified Asha I picked up a while ago. I’ve still got no idea who she is, so if you can help, I’d like to hear from you about it.
* So In Style Trichelle from Rocha Wave One. Probably my favourite SIS ever, and she has jointed elbows – always a plus.
* One of the Fashion Fever Leas
* An Indian Barbie with a Mackie face. I believe that she was actually manufactured in India for the Indian market. I got her nude, but I’ve had a go at making her a Sari for these photos.
* (sitting) Dury, a generic 90s blonde Barbie I made over at the start of the year. Doesn’t she look good in Trichelle’s jacket?
* Another Asha-faced doll, Cali Girl Christie.

      Thanks Blackkitty πŸ™‚ Its really nice to feature some of my dolls who haven’t had an outing recently – I hate the idea of buying them and then just keeping them in a drawer or on a shelf forever. Next year then!! Let’s get planning haha

    A belated Happy Doll Day from me too! I didn’t even know that day existed. My favorites from you doll group are the Leas of course. If you can come up with a color close up of your unidentified Christie, I could try to ID her.

      Thanks Andrea! You can see better pictures of my unidentified Christie here: https://barbiebeauties.wordpress.com/2013/06/29/pet-doctor-barbie-1996/

      You’ll see on the post that you did make a suggestion – Palm Beach Christie, who I had thought of too – but of course, she doesn’t have the swimsuit. Oh well. If you see her anywhere, please do give me a shout, this sort of thing drives me crazy πŸ™‚
