I liked this doll the moment I saw a sneak-peek of her on Facebook. But, to be honest, I wasn’t impressed by her painted eyes. (Actually, I don’t really like painted eyes on any of Ellowyne / Tonner dolls from Collections 2011 and 2012, I think they are not as refined and carefully painted as before. Very sad.) So, from that moment I knew I wanted the doll BUT she simply HAD to have inserted eyes.
So, I bought the doll – Essential Lizette – Wigged Out, 2012 – and sent her to Monalisa who did a wonderful job of inserting gorgeous amber eyes to my Lizette. She also repainted the lips because the original ones were simply too dull.
But that’s not the end of the story…
My friend Ariadne had also been thinking about buying the doll, but when she saw mine she decided, hers had to have inserted eyes, too! So, we sent another doll to Monalisa and my friend’s Lizette has recently arrived – with brown eyes and repainted lips. She is now called Letisha.
And we have finally managed to photograph our two dolls together. Enjoy!
