The new girl in question is a resin BJD by the Italian artist Linda Macario http://www.lindamacariodolls.com/ Linda sells her resin dolls mainly through Jpop Dolls in the US and this is where I spotted my new girl, she was in stock!
Her company name is actually Linda and she is tanned resin. As you'll have already gathered, I particularly love tanned dolls, and even more so, tanned dolls with solemn or slightly grumpy faces, so this little sweetie was just perfect for me. She is 40cm tall and has a chubby child-like body shape. I have renamed her Dylan.
Dylan arrived from Jpops with a pair of bright green glass eyes, really not my 'cup of tea' so I searched through my box of eyes and would you believe it, out of all the pairs I have (and I really have lots of eyes!!) I couldn't find a pair in glass that 1) fitted her or 2) suited her! She takes an 18mm. So she is currently trying out a pair of Glastic Realistic Acrylic eyes.....they are growing on me though so maybe they will stay a while! I have also attached new upper lashes because these are more natural looking than those she came with, plus added some extra bottom lashes and eyebrows with watercolour pencils.
And of course she was bald! As the majority of my wigs are at home and I'm not, she is currently borrowing a wig from my Kaye Wiggs Hope, whilst Hope is borrowing from one of my Little Darlings!!!! It really is like Musical Wigs in this house!!!
When she was all ready to be photographed, I said to my hubby "You've got to admit, she's very cute!" To which he replied "I'll take your word for that!" Oh well, at least I'm happy with her!
Sorry about all the photos, I couldn't choose! Oh, and /an added bonus, she can wear Sasha outfits!!!! Although Sasha shoes are too wide, she is wearing a pair of Ruthsdolls boots below!!
"Hey, Mum! I'm cold without hair!"
Ahh, now that's better!! She may be wearing temporary eyes, a borrowed wig and too big boots, but she fits into a Vintage Sasha smock dress and shorts........what more could a girl want from life!!!! :)
Thank you for looking and apologies for the repetitiveness of the photos, but hope you've enjoyed 'meeting' Dylan :)
