Today, having finished the cleaning and my packing, I decided to have a little play with one of my dolls who's being left behind....I thought it might cheer her up ;) Tanya, my Maru & Friends girl, was given a new wig and a change of clothes. Actually she tried on several wigs and I've not completely decided which will be 'hers' yet, but for now she is happy.
The outfit is called Winter Wonderland and is from Maru & Friends. I really like it although I think it would have been cuter had it been a little shorter, but it's nicely made and good value for the price. The set comes with the knitted dress and matching hat which are both winter white with blue snowflakes decorating the bodice/yoke of the dress and the top of the pull on hat, cabled knee high socks AND the cute faux leather and suede boots with pompoms! The back of the dress does up with Velcro but that, for me, is the only negative as I appreciate these are really designed for children's play and Velcro is easier for kids to work with.
You can now see the wig she is currently wearing. It is an old Monique Gold Ginger and of course, I've cut it to within an inch of it's life! ;) I really like her in this bobbed style though, except that there are a lot of flyaways and stray hairs. But I do love how child-like it is on her.
I think it'd look great with a sweet little hair clip at the front....
I tried the wig below on her, the style is nice but it's a bit synthetic, which I'm not overkeen on.
Below is a very pale blond Monique Gold Jojo. Again I do like it on her but it's not a favourite.
The last wig I tried is another favourite on her, it's a Monique Gold Jojo and I think the style and colour really suits her as she looks young wearing it, which is what I like about her. I thought about cutting this one shorter but she's only borrowed it from one of my Gregors, so will leave it alone for now :) I do think the colour works well with her eyes though.
