The first repaint of 2023.
Winter isn’t a great time for repaints, too dark too soon. But this girl managed to get a new look despite the gloomy weather. She could sure use a change of lipstick color, it clashed with her hair in a way that makes me wonder why they chose it.
She is a MTM DPP74. I named her Zora, after the red-haired heroine of a book I loved as a kid.
The pattern of this fabric makes the dress look almost as if she wore a golden lace top or something. I like the effect very much. So does Zora, apparently…
Unfortunately she came with a tiny black spot on her jaw, but it’s hardly visible. The more I see of the MTMs, the more disappointed I am about the quality of these dolls. I use to sand off the tiny plastic knobs they have near the joints. All the dolls have them, and some of these knobs are so big that they might rip clothes – or even skin.
I am not sure about her hair. Should I give her curls? I actually like the straight hair with the side part, but it could use a bit of styling. Maybe a cut? What do you think?
And I finally got to finish the sofa for the living room. I already had one, but I thought it would be nicer to have a sofa that matches the armchairs. The living room still needs some more pictures, curtains and props, but you get a sneak peek. Took me long enough to continue working on it.
