Annabella is back home!

My darling Annabella arrived back home on Saturday after making the long journey back to the factory in China for a replacement face-up. I was worried about her the whole time ....ok, it was just her head but still I was afraid I would never see her again!

I expected her to be much the same. She is and she isn't, but for the most part I like the changes they made, though I think she looks a bit older now. Her coloring is wonderful, softer and more muted, her face isn't shiny now and she has some shading around her eyes. The freckles are no longer the sparse ones across her cheeks and nose that I really liked but more concentrated, and the brows are way different. My oldest told me the original brows looked more like 'man brows' and she liked these better. I admit, they are growing on me......what do you think?

I will add pics of her here in various wigs. This picture of her in the stocking cap & scarf is her original face-up. (I used this one to make it esier to see her whole face & brows.) Yes, she is hot, LOL!!

Her new brows are easier to see in this photo...

Let me know your thoughts! :o)

New for Princess Diana

I was asked to create a replica of the blush pink suit made by Catherine Walker to fit the Franklin Mint 16" vinyl Princess Diana doll.

Princess Diana wore this worsted wool suit to the Daily Star Gold Awards held at the London Savoy Hotel in March 1997.

The original suit:

My replica:

The suit had a hip-skimming jacket with 3/4 length bracelet sleeves and a short pencil skirt.

My version was made with pale pink linen to simulate the wool, and replicates the original style as closely as possible. It is fully lined and closes with buttons over snaps at the jacket front and back skirt waist.

Diana wore diamond and pearl earrings, beige pumps and carried a Versace 'Lady Di' handbag with gold chain. I cannot recreate the accessories for this outfit, however I accessorized her with faux pearl earrings and necklace.

Currently available for pre-order, please email for details!

Have a wonderful day!
