So back to my new Person, she is 19cm tall, having a tiny body but a large head, taking a 6 inch wig. She is from 2012 and is part of the edition called 'Persons of the Past' and she is a 'full set'. Basically for those who don't know, a 'full set' is a doll that comes with wig, eyes (thought most bjds come with eyes), full outfit and shoes. My new girl's outfit is still in the packaging for now.
I have kept the name that her previous mum gave her, which is Valentine. I thought it was a very cute name and suits her perfectly. She came with a blond bobbed faux mohair wig and pink pupil-less eyes. Well I've never liked pink eyes except on a white furry creature like a rabbit, and pupil-less is definitely not for me so as soon as Valentine was released from her box she got a change of eyes to these nice deep brown glass ones. She also got a new wig which I'd ordered from South Korea in anticipation of her arrival. It is also faux mohair but in red, and I've put it into two plaits. I really like how it looks on her, I love the combination of red hair and brown eyes.
So here she is. She chose this outfit to wear which I'd made a while ago for another of my tiny dolls.
A close up....
I know that these girls are not for everyone but I do love them, they have so much 'attitude'!
So Valentine told me immediately that she needed a Minion! Well, as luck would have it, I just happened to have got one on Sunday when I went to McDonalds! They are currently in the kids Happy Meals and each week I've gone there to ask "which Minion this week?" as I wanted a particular one! And last weekend there it was, a Grenadier Guard Minion! Perfect!
So Valentine has claimed him as her own.....Persons have a tendency to 'claim' things as their own, even when they belong to other people!!!!
At first I wasn't sure that this was the Minion for Valentine, he seemed pretty intent on marching back and forth with his banana, but it wasn't long before they seemed to be hitting it off! She even gave him a loan of her sunhat as it was very hot and his busby was steaming! ;)
And then they chatted on the grass about all sorts of things!
They even shared a bottle of water to keep themselves from dehydrating!
And then they lay on the grass and watched for clouds in the sky! Unfortunately for them, there weren't any again today, so they just watched the birds flying by! The Minion continued to hold on tightly to his banana!
I hope Valentine will be happy here and I look forward to sharing more photos of her again soon!
Thank you for visiting, have a great week everyone!
