One thing that anyone who reads this blog should have figured out by now is that I'm a sucker for dolls in need. I have some pristine dolls but I kind of love my imperfect ladies. My Twinn Adopt A Friend dolls hit all my buttons! They come in both the 23" and 18" sizes and, according to My Twinn's FAQ, they are made from the left over parts and the parts they couldn't use on custom dolls. I started looking for fun and then I found a beautiful girl with a sweet little smile and since she was so cheap I pounced!
A few days later she arrived!
|I like that they sent a catalog.|
She came in a large pink box:
And here is the first real look at her:
And here she is out of the packaging:
|Bright face paint!|
My usual indoor picture taking spot is covered by a bookcase right now. So the next few pictures aren't very good but I did the best I could! Here is Mel front and back:
One thing about Adopt a Friend dolls is that the picture you pick them from only shows the doll from about the shoulders up. They do have a list of features but it only includes, skin, hair and eye color. So I had no idea how long her hair was going to be or what kind of texture it would have. But I figured that if I hated it I could always re-wig her. Luckily I love her hair!
It is about knee length and slightly curly. It was a mess straight out of the box but was pretty easy to tame.
Her hair was listed as strawberry blond but I think it's a bit more copper. You can see the color is a lot more red in the sun.
The hair gets tangled pretty easily but the fiber is nice and smooth with no frizz. The wig is nice and thick in the back with quite a few short hairs. You can barely see the wig cap when her hair is parted in the back.
My one compliant is that it's a bit thin on top but overall it's still a very nice wig.
Her eyes are not sleep eyes but they are a gorgeous light brown with a nice, realistic two tone pattern.
She wears AG clothes pretty well. They are a little loose on her but the shoes fit perfectly!
My Life As clothing (from Walmart) fits her very well!
One of my very favorite things about her is her eyebrows!
Here are a couple more extra pictures:
|It started storming like five minutes after I took this picture! Love this time of year.|
I hope you all enjoyed seeing my new addition! Till next time!
