Marina has sent pictures of the doll and told me that she thinks the shipping date will be Monday. There was a little delay when we discovered she had accidentally used the wrong color mohair for the wig, but she promised to make a black one up quickly for me--and I asked to buy both wigs, since she didn't need the first one for anything. I like wigs.
The doll isn't what I expected, being brown where I had asked for black and pink. (Remember Anna Popplewell?) But I'm getting used to her. Once she arrives, we can try on her other wigs from Monique, drape some fabrics to see what her colors are, and see what she tells me about herself.
Tell you what, she has very pretty eyes. Gwendolyns don't usually have lower lashes, but this one does.
Thank you everybody for your kind comments and encouragement. I feel sorry for the clients who go through this ordering and waiting process without being on the forum--they don't know what they're missing. Not just enthusiasm and encouragement, but very excellent friends!
