When PRINCESS+FROG debuted back in 2011, it was Ellowyne Wilde who became my special repaint muse. I always looked forward to seeing what new personality I could draw forth from that charmingly round little face. It was disappointing to learn that Ellowyne production had recently come to an end at Wilde Imagination; you can be sure that I’ll appreciate this sweet doll even more than before as she becomes harder to find.
This brunette beauty is my first Ellowyne repaint in quite a while; upon completing her, she accompanied me to our dolly wig closet and one by one we went through the selections. She chose this style---cocoa-colored, soft and faux mohair, cute and kind of sweetly untidy. I tied it atop her head and lo and behold, she became MISS VICTORIA in that moment---sometimes the name just appears on their lips! (I should mention she looks darling in other styles, too---deep auburn curls and platinum white blonde boy-cut were my other wig choices. It’s that clear blue in her eyes and the cobalt on her lids---it leaves so many color possibilities).
MISS VICTORIA has been listed on eBay tonight in my favorite kind of auction---$1 opening bid and no reserve! It’s a 7-day run, ending next Saturday at 630pm PST (west coast time). Click here to go to her auction and see a few more photos of this girl.
It’s so good to be back repainting; I can’t tell you how fun it is to immerse myself in dollies again!
