On Tuesday and Wednesday we'll post the second and third of this trio....

We can't let February pass without some dolly that was born to wear red, and SABINE certainly fits that description. A former 'Sushi For One' Ellowyne, she is the original version of last post's MARCHELINE and shares her facial features as well as her technique---SABINE is a grisaille repaint layered with transparent color that creates a vintage effect.
SABINE is available on the Dolly Adoption page today; please take a look if you wish to provide her a new home!

MARCHELINE is an example of a grisaille repaint...she was first repainted in monochromatic shades of mixed sepia/black/white, and then transparent color glazed atop. Her owner loves the vintagey look!
MARCHELINE's hair was restyled with two braids tied atop and behind her head. We love this look on the long, straight-haired Ellowynes; it's easy to do and goes from exotic to elegant if you tie the length back, too, into a ponytail.
If you like MARCHELINE, stay tuned for an upcoming Dolly Adoption for a raven-haired version of Ellowyne with this same face.

PRINCESS has set me free to do pretty much as I please on the 16" Tonners, so all those future girls who will be appearing here have their inception in my paint-hazed brain (insert gleeful grin here!). The first of these is BELLA PAST MIDNIGHT, a smoky-eyed repaint of 'Bella's Birthday'.
Offered in an absolutely gorgeous gown by Gaylejoy, this is a grown-up BELLA who has seen more than a few moonlit nights on Edward's arm! Gosh--I really loved this ensemble, which has been in my personal collection for several years--but once I dressed her in it for the photoshoot, I knew I had to let it go with BELLA herself (well, to be honest there was a tug of war over the idea--PRINCESS wanted to keep both BELLA and her dress!).
Check out the photos of the beauteously dressed BELLA here. This seven-day auction ends next Tuesday night at 650pm PST.

RAVEN is a gorgeous girl who has been purposefully repainted in colors that will go with just about any wig color you can think of, even with her thick dark brows. We are very limited in our Wilde I. wig selection here, otherwise we would have taken many more photos of various colors, but we can tell you RAVEN looks smashing in many shades of red/auburn and blonde (especially platinum).
We had fun searching our wardrobe and narrowing down the choices of what she would wear in her photo layout. Her colors are plum, fuchsia, emerald, cobalt blue, rosy pink---so many of the dark or vivid Ellowyne fashions look perfect on RAVEN, but in the end we stayed with our birdy theme and went with some basic black in a sparkly rhinestone-accented vintage Tonner jacket.
RAVEN is on eBay tonight in a five-day auction ending on Tuesday. You can view her right here....
BUBBLES is in a five-day auction ending next Tuesday---view more photos and her info right here....
