Reverence for the Repaint

I can do many things when it comes to doll collecting.  I cannot do what Jon Copeland does.  I can’t even contemplate it.  I can, however, observe, enjoy and photograph it.

For those who are interested, she was originally a Mila™ Barbie® Doll.


The Gang’s All Here

The Russian Silkstone gang that is.  Well…not all of them.  Darya will be here sometime in late summer but I just couldn’t wait to do a group shot.  I received Verushka today and I was so enthused I just had to get the gang into the studio.  First of all, let me just say it took a little while to warm up to Verushka.  That hat!  I guess I am just not the floppy sides down Elmer Fudd hat kind of girl.  I was going to just take the thing off except I had heard stories that she is sparsely rooted under the hat.  I decided to just tie the floppy sides up ( like any good hunting hat and much more like the Elmer Fudd we know and love) and I have to say I like it WAY better.  I love the platinum blond with the black on this lady.  Very dramatic and that is just what I was looking for with this line.

After seeing many amazing photos that people have taken of Ekaterina with her hat off, I decided to remove her hat and reposition it.  LOVE it now.  I had thought I might replace the hat with a fur Dimitha hat but for now…she will keep her original hat.  Finally, I am so excited to be using these amazing Russian stacking dolls I found at a doll show recently.  I was encouraged to purchase this particular set by a dear Barbie friend ( cough, cough Silkyfever, cough, cough) and I am so glad I listened to her.
