The Sun

The Sun, originally uploaded by alington.

One of my recent additions, The Sun, has arrived. By Tonner Doll, she's a Cinderella sculpt on a small-bust fashion body, and she represents Juliet from the classic Shakespeare play, Romeo and Juliet. I love her funky "reimagined" outfit. She even includes a small dagger.

She has raven curls (which I have not yet rinsed) and blue eyes, and a super neutral lip color and face-up, which I appreciate. It seems to make her face much less round.

Her dress is a modern interpretation of medieval style--an above-the knee pannier skirt empire waist gown in black velvet with slate blue satin ruffles and gold trim. The gown is surprisingly detailed. It's held up by "invisible" straps. The outfit also includes a white lace three-quarter sleeve shrug that ties at the elbows. In addition, she came with black lace tights, high lacing black shoes, and a ribbon choker.

The earrings are by LVNV Dolls (this doll did not include earrings--a fault of many ReImagination series dolls, in my humble opinion), and they happen to match very well.

You can see a few other photos on my Flickr photostream, or her entire photo shoot with larger photos on my Mobile Me gallery. I will need to reshoot to get a few full-length shots, which came out blurry this time around.
