Here is my new girl. A girl I had been thinking of buying for a very long time (about 1.5 years!). She was relatively easy to buy then but now she is rare, so I was really lucky to find her. She had some adventures on her way to me as she was stuck at the local sorting centre for 3 weeks and it took me lots of time and nerves to get her out of there (usually the local post is superb, I guess that just was my luck!).
When I got her out of the box she looked really tired but it is amazing how dolls’ expressions do change – she was more relaxed and almost smiling after half an hour – she knew she was finally HOME and was loved!
So, she is Lorraine, Gotz doll, 2003. I have a few dolls with this face but Lorraine is special (just like Tamira). Being an earlier girl she has a much softer face-up so she looks younger and even more gentle than her later sisters (like Winter doll and Happy Kidz dolls). And she has amazing hair, very long and beautiful. I will show her with her sisters later, but today is Lorraine’s day!
I call her Laura.
