Custom Sasha Doll: Palila

Happy Summer!

Just finished a new custom Sasha doll (who has now been adopted). Here are some photos:

Her name is Palila (a type of Hawaiian finch), and she has a brown wig with lots of little curls.

Her eyes are painted hazel - brown around the edges, greens inside with hints of brown and gold. A darker green rims her irises. She was painted with artist acrylics after all original paint was removed, and the paint is sealed with a matte sealer.

I made her dress - a simple cotton cream-colored piece with brown stripes. It snaps in the back. When I have customized Sasha dolls in the past, I often wished for a simple dress that I could make in different colors for each doll. I finally decided to just make one myself. All seams are finished.
The doll is in great shape - she even still has her round Sasha wrist tag. She'll come with a handmade hang-tag with info about her, and her right foot will be signed by me.

Her lips are also repainted with just a hint of shading, and she has a scattering of freckles across her nose.

(Not intended for children under the age of 12. Although the paint is sealed, heavy play is not recommended. Gentle play is encouraged!)

she is super. Great work! You can read her character in her eyes, pose, even in her curls, everything.
