However today it was lovely in the sunshine in our sheltered garden, so I decided to take some photos of my Himstedt girls as I miss photographing them as they're just too big to have with me at the coast.
So first we have Kiomi, who I call Kimmie. Kimmie is from the Himstedt Kinder 2005
"World's Children Summit", she is 82cm or 36 inches tall, and she represents a child from Japan. I love her eyes, which unfortunately you cannot see very clearly here as the sun was so bright! She is from a limited edition of 713 dolls. Kimmie is wearing real children's clothes and sneakers.
Secondly we have Sidika, who is 73cm tall (28.5 inches) and is known here as Sydney. Sydney is from the same 2005 collection as Kiomi, but she represents a child from India. She is also from a limited edition of 713 dolls. I love her sweet childish face and her open mouth and little teeth showing! Sydney is wearing a dress and blouse that I made for her using my own patterns. Her boots and tights are for real children.
Both girls have human hair wigs and their gorgeous eyes are hand blown glass paperweight eyes which I believe are made in Germany.
Sydney was distracted by some white doves on the roof of our house! ;)
I hope you've enjoyed seeing Kimmie and Sydney playing in the sunshine in our garden! I'm sure you'll agree that Annette Himstedt has done a fantastic job of representing real children in vinyl. If you'd like to see more photos of Himstedt dolls, which are sadly no longer made, there is a lovely website here that I can highly recommend for some gorgeous eye candy!
Thanks for visiting! I hope you have a great week ahead and that you're not too cold where you are :)
