Long overdue for her own photoshoot, The Parrot finally gets a chance in the spotlight.

Antoinette has long been a favorite of mine. This version has perfect red hair in spiral curls, and fabulous facial screening with over-the-top runway make-up. She wears a yellow feather in her hair.

Her dress is many layers of silk, taffeta, tulle, and lace, starting with red in colors of the rainbow, down to the bottom of her skirt hem, where it fades to blue. She's dressed all the colors of the spectrum (or a macaw parrot). Her boots are teal and buckle in three places (also zip in the back).

While she could use some earrings, which I haven't (yet) added, I think she is elegant and lovely--I think she is one of the most gorgeous dolls from Tonner Doll's convention this year. She was a table centerpiece for the Flights of Fancy banquet, limited to 100.
