The Lily Pond, where all-Asian repaints are showcased.
She's had subtle sculpting to eyes and mouth to create complementary almond shapes within her face---with all the Asian dolls I've repainted, I use this technique to create a repetitive harmony throughout; with KATSUE, it's ovals---with some of the others, I've used triangular shapes (hmm, a form of facial feng shui?).
KATSUE's colors are unusual for me; I tend to choose pinks or browns for neutrality's sake, but this time the dolly asked for these beautiful soft shades of cobalt and turquoise and emerald and citrine. Her eyes are a dark brown; they may look nearly black in the photos but are more noticeably brown in person. KATSUE's lips have been painted deep fuchsia to match the streak of color in her black hair. Her brows are brown-black, and are thick and straight.
KATSUE was listed for adoption yesterday at The Lily Pond, where all-Asian repaints are showcased....if you go there, you can see other photos of her. KATSUE has already found a home, but if you'd like to be on The Lily Pond first-to-know email list, just drop us a line with your email address. My Asian repaints are available to purchase one day before they are listed here at PRINCESS+FROG or on Facebook!
