Lucine from Sinister Circus

Lucine from Sinister Circus, originally uploaded by alington.
She's here--and I'm smitten. Lucine is a Sinister Circus doll, from Tonner Doll Company's Reimagination line. She's a limited edition of 1000 dolls, so she's still readily available, and she's the Sister Dreary head sculpt on a convertible (flat-footed) Tyler Wentworth regular bust body.

Lucine even fits in with my unusual holiday decor. I love her smokey eyes and neutral lips--it's both gothic and macabre. Her hair could use a rinse at some point, but it's a nice texture for her overall look, I think.

The outfit is to die for: a metallic pleather bustier with shirring at the top and tiered layers of lace and chiffon in mauve, burgundy and chartreuse. She's wearing lace leggings underneath, and a single armband, plus black fingerless gloves, a black hairband, black "suede" boots which zip up the back, and metallic fishnet sock (and pantyhose). She also included a waist-gripper stand, which she actually doesn't need, since she can stand on her own.

You can see more photos of her on my Picasa album and on Flickr. She's just a really fun and unusual doll. I was thinking I might have some buyer's remorse for her--but I really love her. I think I'll hang onto her for a while. She's very fun!
