I take my best pictures outdoors, because I'm lucky enough to have a 6-foot wooden privacy fence so I don't have to deal with my neighbors staring at me like I'm a crazy lady while I take pictures of dolls. LOL. For the past few days, there have been workers up on my next-door neighbors' roof, and they can see down right into my back yard. Sigh. I'm way too self-conscious to have them staring at me while I take photographs of my dolls.
I tried to take pictures indoors yesterday, and this was the only pic that came out decent. It's FR:16 Anais, looking beautiful and fierce. I love her like this, so I had to share. The sweater is by Tonner, and the earrings are from Rock Wedding Lilith. I made the headband.
The Tonner company always made the BEST sweaters. I wish they'd release more sweaters like this, in different colors. I don't think they ever did this sweater in blue or purple. They released versions of this sweater in off-white, green, pink, black and orange, but you can only buy them on the secondary market, now.

Here are my initial pics. This is the only Sabrina doll I got. I would have loved to have gotten all four, but my budget wouldn't allow it.
I adore this dark navy blue suit! It's the outfit the character in the movie wears when she returns home from Paris. She arrives at the train station, waiting for her father to pick her up. Her father is delayed, but by a happy coincidence that only happens in movies, her long-time crush, David, just happens to drive by. What luck! LOL. (I re-watched the movie recently while waiting on this dollie.)
The only thing the doll is missing is Audrey Hepburn's wide, charming smile. You can click on the pictures to make them bigger.

The outfit on "Admiration" is divine! The shoes are wonderful, and fit perfectly (sorry, I didn't get pics of those). She comes with a perfect, tiny little purse the same shade of brick red as her blouse and hat. I love her whole 1940s look.
The doll herself has applied eyelashes, and her hair is a nice, neatly-braided bun. I posed her here with Monogram "Envied." I always thought "Envied" was an under-rated Monogram, but she looks amazing redressed. She makes a perfect sister for "Admiration."

I bought Wonder Woman because I was a big fan of the character as a child. I guess I just loved the "girl power" aspect of watching a raven-haired beauty kick men's asses. LOL!
When Tonner said he was debuting his DC Comics characters in the 13" size, I was excited about it. At the time, I thought I might be collecting many of them. Then he came out with a few others in the series (Catwoman, Black Canary) and gave them all the SAME face sculpt. I stopped buying them, then. That sucked, because I would have loved to buy a 13" Catwoman if she'd had a different face sculpt. Sigh. Tonner is coming out with two more face sculpts for the 13" body later this year, so I have high hopes that one day we'll see different faces for the 13" DC comics girlies.
