She is a tanned number 1 sculpt and I do believe that Lana is the only one of the artists who still tans the Little Darlings....and I'm not even sure if she still takes orders for tanned ones either. But I had particularly wanted a tanned girl as I thought she would make the perfect little Spanish child, and I think you'll agree that she does. Her colour is quite dark but my photos do not show this, even at 9pm at night, the light is bright enough that she looks paler than she actually is. She has the most beautiful brown handpainted eyes, they have so much depth...I love how Lana creates her eyes, making them look so realistic and as if they are made of glass. The eyelashes look so full and soft that you'd swear you could touch them with your finger and sweep them across....and yet they too are painted onto the vinyl doll. Amazing!
Like the cobblers children lacking shoes, my poor girl hasn't a thing to wear as I didn't have time to make something....yes you read that right, 26 months waiting and I didn't get to make her anything in advance of her arrival! Oh well, she arrived wearing knickers and it's so hot here now that I'm sure she's delighted not to have to wear anything :)
Apologies that the photos are a bit repetitive but I wanted to share how she looks in different light.
Here you can see just how real her eyelashes look, you'd swear they were applied rather than painted on!
This last photo, taken inside, shows her colour more like it actually is.
