|Her friend the rag doll is still around, too.|
The hooded jacket is something I found in a bag is miscellaneous doll clothes I've been accumulating. I bought the shoes at Wal-Mart, since she looked odd to me barefoot.
|She stands pretty well unassisted, too.|
I've never had a doll like this one before. She's an obvious American Girl-style knockoff, with a stuffed body and vinyl head and limbs that are also her five points of articulation. Her hair is the same super-fine stuff that Monster High's Catty Noir is rooted in, but I don't know enough about doll hair to tell you more than that. On the subject of her hair, you may notice that she's no longer got the braid that went across her forehead originally. I decided that I'd brush it out and redo it... only to discover that my attempts at fixing the odd lumpy spots in the braid were not up to re-creating the hairstyle. So she's got a new hairstyle now.

She has a very sweet face with a neutral but nice expression. Very, very subtle makeup gives her rosy cheeks and a charming smile.

This doll definitely has some heft to her, and feels pretty solid. I'm not a huge fan of her fine, thin hair, but it's pretty well rooted. She's charming enough that I've bought her some bargain bin/thrifted clothes and a couple of pairs of shoes, but I don't feel moved to invest in a lot of stuff for her. She doesn't even have a *name* at this point. I feel like I like her, but like I'd also be okay with giving her to a child who I thought would appreciate her. She is very photogenic though, and even though she's a knock-off, I find that I like her face a lot more than the American Girl face.
We'll see how I feel next update.
