Amelia's Party Dress

I mentioned in my post about Matilda's Ball Gown that I also bought a dress for Amelia and that I would talk about it at a later date. Today is that day! So here is what I think about Amelia's Party Dress:

Here is her dress in the box the day I got it:
I really like that Amelia has her own color scheme and design to her boxes by the way.

Amelia - Your Victorian Girl

The second doll released by A Girl for All Time is Amelia, Your Victorian Girl! I bought her with amazon gift cards saved from Christmas and my birthday. Plus I got free shipping because I bought her through amazon! Go me!

Without further ado here is Amelia Elliot!

Matilda's Masked Ball Gown

Around Easter A Girl for All Time had a coupon code, so I felt like it would be a good time to get a couple of things. I got Amelia her party dress (to be featured in a future post) and Matilda her ball gown! It's my very favorite!

And here it is!

Miss Matilda

I love this doll and this company so it's very hard for me to figure out where to begin with this post. I guess I should explain a little bit about myself? I really like history and I'm kind of obsessed with Tudor England in particular. Queen Elizabeth I has been one of my role models since I was young, I can name all of Henry VIII's wives in order and I'm kind of a big Anne Boleyn fan! Seriously The Creation of Anne Boleyn is one of my new very favorite books! I also really enjoy genealogy. I have a weird fascination with family trees and old names and things like that! So the awesome people at A Girl for All Time have hit SO many of my interest buttons!

About a year ago I was on a doll blog I like and I saw a review for this gorgeous doll named Matilda from a new doll company and I fell in love! Not only was Matilda beautiful and unique but she was also from Tudor England! Her story takes place around the rise and fall of Katherine Howard. Where does the genealogy fit in? All of the dolls that A Girl for All Time has made/will make belong to the same family and in fact are descended from their first doll Matilda Marchmont! You can read all about that here and be sure to check out the family tree.

I really really wanted Matilda but I was waiting a bit. I showed her to my mom and talked about her some. I was pretty excited because they are awesome dolls but still I was going to wait till I was done with my list of AG dolls that I wanted. But my mom had another idea! She talked to my best friend to make sure that it was Matilda I wanted and then she bought her for me for Christmas. I was completely shocked!

Yesterday I took a few pictures of her for you all and now after that huge wall of text up there I'm finally getting to them!! After the jump :P

Molly Finished

I had my doubts about this one. BIG doubts. I almost didn't even try, but she's done and she looks amazing!

I thought about how I was going to do this reveal and since I made a numbered list on my first post about her ( here ) I decided that I would just follow that list and tell you all about what I did!  (click on the pictures to make them bigger)

I have been resisting this kind of doll for a VERY long time. I LOVE monsters and witches and vampires so trust me Monster High has been calling my name for a very long time, and I have resisted! But then Bratzillaz showed up on the market and, unlike Monster High dolls, they have inset eyes! That is so cool but still I resisted!

Then they came out with the Switch-A-Witch sets! I think they are super cool and they have one with sparkly silver eyes. Really? Must you test me so universe? But still, I resisted! I stayed strong!

Until last weekend, when I went to Walmart and they had the one I most wanted on clearance for nine dollars. NINE DOLLARS. So I bought her!

Well there goes my self control! Meet Veau*:
I'm sorry I suck and I didn't think to take a picture before I tore her open so here is an official one from Amazon!

Kit's Coat

American Girl is having a pretty good sale at the moment on a few select items! I managed to pick up Kit's coat for $18 and a Christmas present for someone else. Now normally things like coats and nightgowns are at the very bottom of my want list but I couldn't pass this up. Yesterday everything arrived!

American girl describes it as a double-breasted wool coat. It feels pretty wool like to me; either way it has a very thick and sturdy feel to it!

The back.
