Dylan Invites Her Family!

Today Dylan's (Robin) big sister, Bastian arrived from Little Cosmos Dolls in Barcelona.  You'll probably remember that I said she was expected about now and sure enough she landed on my doorstep this afternoon.

I'm smitten!

I've already said how happy I felt to receive Robin having met her sculpture Sandra Locre in Barcelona back in June, and I'm doubly happy with Bastian.

Bastian is 35cm tall with a skinny frame, she was painted by Sandra and arrived with lighter brown eyes which I decided to change.  She now has dark brown glass eyes and she is wearing the untidy wavy dark brown/black wig that Robin tried on last week.  I really like how it looks on her but it is a bit scraggly, I'm going to see how it 'settles' on Bastian but might try some more wigs on her tomorrow.  I would like her to have dark hair because she has a very Asian look and the majority of Asians I believe have naturally dark hair.  I'd like to emphasise that with her hair.  

Just a few photos of her at the moment, I will take more soon.  I made her this dress and bag in anticipation of her arrival and fortunately the fit of the bodice is spot on :)  

Sorry that the photos are a little repetitive!









 

Bastian hasn't got a name yes, I thought I might keep her as Bastian but not sure yet.  I will give it some thought.

In the meantime, poor Dylan is trying to get out of going back to school!!!  


Oh my goodness, look at that stubborn face!!


No Dylan, a scraped knee is NOT a reason to get out of going to school!!


 
I'm sure she'll be fine when she gets there!! ;)

Thanks very much for visiting, enjoy the rest of your week :)

Big hugs Sharon xx

  1. Sharon, how cute! I love Dylan's new sister. I can see that they have different tastes and personalities. Dylan is too precious with the bandaid on her leg. How did you finally get her off to school?

    1. Thanks very much Dee, I'm very happy with her! I have already changed her wig twice since these photos LOL, you know me too well! I am still not decided on which will be her actual wig so you will have to give me your opinion when I post some more photos.
      I know, I'm a wicked mum to these girls but honestly, they'll thank me in the end when they're perfectly educated ;)

  3. I like the dark eyes on your new girl. Lovely photos of her in a very sweet outfit. Poor Dylan, I hope she finds her place in school. Maybe a good friend would be nice for her to have. 😊 xxx

  4. Lol, how many times haven't I heard some crazy things to skip school. :D And scraped knees is something kids almost everyday get at school! And when Dylan gets to school, she will enjoy it and get great new friends!
