Lyric tries out being a redhead....

Amongst all the fuss of the new arrival, Lyric wanted to try out a red wig.  She's a little put out that another 60s Gotz Slate Eyes Blond has arrived, so she wants to be different. 

I already had this particular wig, a synthetic mohair Monique Gold Geneva in Carrot Red, and decided to cut it into a short bobbed style for Lyric.  I do like the longer hair but because the Monique Gold wigs are so soft, they do tend to get untidy quickly.  I'm going to leave this wig on her for a while and see what I think because maybe I'll reroot her in a similar shade later on.

  1. Lyric looks very sweet in the red wig but I'm not to sure the colour quite suits her? It may be the cut being blunt at the end or it may be it will grow on her.
    Either way she's a sweetheart and whatever she gets she'll rock!!

    1. Thanks for your opinion Dee, I wonder if it's just too 'neat and tidy' for her then? I do like the colour but maybe it would need to be slightly toned down if I were going for a reroot? I will have to wait and see how it 'grows' on me!
      I do love her little face though, and that's the main thing I guess!

  2. I'm so pleased to see that Lyric is getting some extra special attention from you since she's somewhat put out with the arrival of another blonde slate-eyed girl.
    Tell her that I really love her in this wig (which rather reminds me of my Gotz waif Holly's.....but much smarter!) and think that the colour, style and cut really suits her giving her a 'WOW' appeal.
    Sweet little outfit too.
    (Haven't seen these succulent plants in the Terracotta planter used as a background before. Very smart!)

    1. Oooo so we have one for and one against on the redhead debate so far!!! I am glad that you like it Kendal and yes, she really needed to get some attention today and be reassured that she is still loved regardless of a new kid on the block!!
      Thanks for that!
      No, I don't think I've used it very often with the Sashas because it is under the lemon tree which normally is quite shaded, however a mountain of lemons dropped off whilst we were away (now have litres of freshy squeezed lemon juice yum!) and now there's less shade there. Usually with their dark skin, the Sashas can't be seen properly in that spot!!

    1. Thank you so much Saphira, I'm glad you like the hair colour! I am really liking her in this colour and I think I'm leaning towards rerooting her as a redhead at some point in the future! And yes, you're right, a new wig can make so much difference to a doll!
