|Prettie Girls Tween Scene dolls Valencia and Alexie.|
Decided my Prettie Girl Tween Scene dolls needed shoes.
So I thought I'd try out a few. Came to the conclusion that shoes for the 13" Dianna Effner Little Darlings dolls might fit, since Tween Scene's feet are exactly 50mm x 20mm and Little Darlings shoes are close to this. I bought three different kinds to try. Two were perfect, and the third was not quite. I also tried Hearts 4 Hearts and Delilah Noir doll shoes on them, too, but those were both way too big. MSD-sized shoes for Asian ball-jointed dolls are too big as well.
Here are my results with the Little Darlings shoes:
1st pair: Lavender patent heart mary janes from Debs Adorables on eBay. These were really 99% perfect except that the straps are a little too long for the Tween Scene feet. It could be corrected quickly with a pair of scissors, but I decided to just leave it as-is. They look pretty cute. They work either with socks or without. This merchant only sells to the United States, though.
2nd pair: Black-and-white saddle shoes from JuJu's Dolly Mall on eBay. These are 100% perfect and awesome, and SO CUTE! They even came with the socks. Was very pleased with this purchase. JuJu's sells internationally, although they're located in the United States.
3rd pair: Tan heart cut shoes from JuJu's Dolly Mall. (Same link as above.) These were ... not perfect. The fit was a little loose in length and width, so they need to be worn with socks/tights. The biggest issue was they were too HIGH for the Tween Scene's foot. It may not be obvious in the pictures, but it was bugging me a little seeing it in person. I think they'd be fine if I put a Dr. Scholl's-style insert in the bottom, so that the foot is raised up a little bit inside the shoe. I think if I did that, it would look OK. Not pleased with this purchase.
I'll close with some more random shots of these girls, since I spent a couple of weeks making them outfits. I made all the clothes in these pics. Now you know why I needed more shoes.
