Now that we’re sliding into autumn that means one thing in the doll collecting world: new play line and new releases from collector companies! Granted a lot of play line has been trickling out over the summer, but Tonner has only done a sneak peek at what is to come, whilst Wilde Imagination just teases.
One bit of information on Ever After High mind you, they aren’t slated to be in regular stores until December. So much for the Christmas rush, eh? And that is the US, I don’t know about the rest of the world. I suppose it works out, as I think another doll is going to be taking a lot of my money at this rate.
The evening before Tonner revealed Deja Vu (I like the concept of the line, have yet to see a doll that perk my interest but i’m sure one will), Wilde showed off their newest little girl: Patience. The second I saw her I just needed her. Not sure what it was, the big eyes or what but I just had to have her. Thankfully, it worked out and I did get her ordered.
We won’t mention the week long holiday she spent in customs, much to my annoyance. But finally, yesterday around noon she arrived.
She is around 14″ tall and very articulated, making her great fun to pose. The eyes, which I at first fancied would be moved in the same way as a Pullip, actually move depending on how her head/upper body is positioned.
I’ve read she can share clothing with Marley Wentworth or the Harry Potter dolls made by Tonner, as I don’t have any of those dolls that isn’t something I can say for certainty but I will assume this is correct information. I have a few dresses here that might actually fit her, so there might be a dress up day coming up. I tested them on Maudlynne and they worked, so here’s hoping.
I’ve renamed her Faith, and rest assured you’ll be seeing a lot of her in the coming weeks as I am completely smitten with her. I actually have a doll room planned, so she is getting her own little bedroom area. She’s already spoiled with a huge dollhouse (the Precious Places Magic Key Mansion from the late 1980s, it belonged to one of my sisters), I have a bed already that just needs the mattress cleaned and some bed sheets and pillows, and of course she’ll be getting quite the wardrobe in the long run. Oh, and an antique quilt made by my late grandma 60 years ago.
I am hoping this line does well for Wilde Imagination, as I’m in love with it already and there is only one doll! If you are a doll collector and considering adding her to your collection, she is worth it. She is kind of like a Pullip without the fragility and issues. The rest of the line will be up at some point this autumn, so I know for one I am eagerly awaiting more.
A few more photos of her around the yard or with Christian (my Mortimer from the Evangeline Ghastly line).
Mortimer is another doll I recommend highly, he’s gorgeous. I do not photograph him often enough, which is funny since I wanted him all of last year and the only reason I splashed out was the 20% off sale right before Christmas.
I’ll hopefully be back with more of Patience and many other things. I am considering going to a showing of Shakespeare’s Othello in the coming weeks. The only trouble is it is on at the cinema the same night as the season premiere of The Big Bang Theory.
Such a problem I tell you.
