Barbie for big girls.

Lavender Luxury

Easter weekend is upon us and everything is coming to life in the garden again.  The trees  are all blooming pink and white, the daffodils are up and the lilacs are on the way.  Life is good.  With this symphony of pastels booming in the yard, I had to do something in the studio to celebrate it.  I had the perfect model in mind too.  Recently, I sent the lavender haired Mood Changer Poppy Parker head over to Jon Copeland-Childers for a “spa” treatment and what he sent back to me had my jaw dropping.

There are spa treatments and then there are Jon treatments.  I stand by the Jon treatment.

**Note** Before I get a gazillion questions, I have to declare here that the luggage I used is not OOAK.  It is the set from the Poppy Parker Sabrina series but I have photo shopped the trim to lavender.

This suit is a favorite of mine.  It is from the IT 2013 Premier Convention Collection.  I was searching through some Edith Head sketches a couple months back and stumbled across what might have been the inspiration for this one.

    Rebecca, Jon’s work is undeniably some of THE best work in the doll world, you have also put together an amazing ensemble using elements from so many different dolls/looks. She looks like a million bucks! I could look at her all day. 🙂

    She’s a delight in white! Her purple gives her more charm! White is just so impressive on so many things in the world.

    • Thank you Karen! Yes, white suits just kind of go hand in hand with Easter and this purple hair screamed for a neutral outfit. I was happy with how they turned out and am glad you agree.

    One of the most amazing transformations I’ve ever seen. You’ve also convinced me to save “Breathless” from the e-bay stack and undress her. You’ve captured that ensemble perfectly.
