As a dollmaker one is used to farewells from ones dolls.
This is always a bit of bittersweet: on the one hand, it is sometimes difficult to part – having spent a lot of time, care and love. But, of course, I can not keep all the dolls I make – then I would have already drowned in dolls a long time ago. ;)
On the other hand, I am also happy because the doll will get a loving new home and family … loved and played with, she will experience adventure and hopefully have a long and fulfilling dolls life.
At the same time, there are some dolls, that got a hold on your heart from the start and with whom parting is a little bit harder. It takes some willpower to send them on their journey out into the wide world.
“Julie” e.g. is one of those …
I fell in love with this little doll girl right from the beginning. So simple and yet special.
At the same time cheeky and smart, she conquers hearts in a storm. But the little one was a custom doll, that means the future doll mama was already waiting for her.
So when it was finally time to make Julie ready for departure, I had to say my goodbyes …
“No, Julie – I know you’re in a hurry to get your new doll mummy … but being naked and only wrapped in paper is not the way to travel! You need to put on some clothes first… ”
I agree – Underpants are of course part of the basic wardrobe of every young lady, indeed. ;)
And of course, you can not go without your striped socks.
A woolen scarf for those cooler days has to come along and into the luggage.
And you have to bring along an airy summer romper for those warmer days.
Hmm … But wait! Maybe you should travel in something … more.. festive … hmm … a dress maybe? After all, it is your new doll mamas birthday and on such a festive occasion one should make an effort to dress up, right?
Come along, Julie – I think I might have just the right dress for you…
Yes, that is better. And polka dots are always a good choice, right?
In addition, the dress also matches your socks.
Hmmm. Perhaps a little something for the hair, too? Or will it only take away from the essential?
Yes, I think you are well equipped to travel to your new home now, little Julie.
Quickly, pack everything up …and then it is time to start your new exciting doll life, where you are eagerly awaited already…
…Farewell, Julie … !
