Unfortunately all photos were taken inside....I know, I know, I'm a wimp but there were too many people about for me to be seen with a bunch of dolls!!!
So my four Gotz girls were changed into warmer clothing first. Here is Asian Hannah at the Ballet, wearing an outfit I made a couple of years ago. She is also wearing a woolly hat that I found in a toy shop here, plus boots from Primark which are made for babies of 0-3 months! What a find, bearing in mind the price of doll footwear, these ones, made for human babies were only 5 euros a pair!!
A close up of her sweet little face:
Next Happy Kidz Charlotte from 2016, who is also wearing an outfit that I made some time ago. She is also wearing the same type of baby boots from Primark. Her dress is made from a child's hoodie which I bought and unpicked to use the fabric. I love this fabric, as well as being pretty, it's a lovely weight of knit fabric to work with.
Although the Emily sculpt is my favourite of the Happy Kidz sculpts, I really do like Charlotte too, she has grown on me a lot since she's been here:
My rewigged Emily from 2015 is wearing a knitted dress from My Doll Best Friend, I love this dress and wish they did it in other colours, but the deep pink and turquoise works so well on her. Her boots are doll ones and she is wearing Gotz leg warmers over her tights.
My sweet little wigged Emily in close up:
Next we have Sophie, a beautiful brown eyed redhead from 2012. She is wearing a skirt and sweatshirt that I made earlier this year. Her brightly coloured owl hat was a gift from a dear dolly friend in the US a couple of years ago, I thought it went perfectly with her outfit!!
Finally of the Gotz girls we have my new 'replacement' blond Emily from 2016. She came here in August but what with the wedding and everything else, I never got the chance to photograph her until now! I'm really pleased to have a blond Happy Kidz again, I really should learn my lesson from this and keep the scissors away from them!! ;)
She's wearing another outfit that I made previously, I loved this on the original (now wigged brunette) Emily so new Emily gets to wear it:
And a close up to see her sweet face, she is almost exactly the same except she has a side parting whereas original Emily's was middle parting if I remember rightly!
OK, so five down......quite a few more to go though! I hope you've enjoyed this brief post of a few of my girls. I hope everyone has a lovely weekend and a great week ahead. I will be off to the UK on Wednesday to help celebrate my mum's 80th birthday.....I'm away for a week and hope to take a doll with me, but at this moment in time, I can't decide who to take!!!! All suggestions welcome.
Big hugs Sharon xx
