My re-rooted "Pencil Me In" Eugenia

"Pencil Me In" Eugenia wasn't a huge hit at first, at least compared to the rest of the 2011 Fashion Royalty line.  It really took seeing owner pics for people to warm to her, and the main objection seemed to be her "love it or hate it" hairdo.  Personally, I loved her face paint.  For me, her original hair was only so-so.  Didn't love it; didn't totally hate it, either, but in my world I saw room for improvement.  So I changed her.

Her new hair is a 50/50 mix of raven black and very dark brown saran.  I also re-touched her lips.  Nothin' wrong with her original peachy lips ... I just wanted them a deep, bloody red.  I wanted to create my own personal dream Eugenia, since it seems like over the years every truly wonderful Eugenia that's been produced has somehow managed to NOT make it into my collection.  I miss getting them at retail, and then cry softly as I watch them being sold on the secondary market for TWICE retail.  Sigh. 

Her photoshoot friend is Fashion Royalty "Regal Solstice" Anja. 

Of course, I didn't bother to take "before" pics of Eugenia, so here's a link to the page about her on the Integrity Toys web site, where you can see her original hair.

  1. I'm actually one of those people who love PMI Eugenia just as she is (maybe because it's the first FR I own), but you made her look like out of this world in these pictures, so sophisticated :) Greetings from Poland and if you have time please visit my blog:
