Patience arrived this week from The Tonner Store, and she is just about the cutest thing ever. She has huge eyes, which I love on any doll. Not only does she have beautiful green inset eyes, but she has "flirty eyes", which means when you tilt her head from side to side, her eyes move. It's hard to show in pictures how her eyes move, so I made a video so you can see it in action.
Quoted from the Wilde Imagination website:
Garden Patience is the first doll in this new series, and is limited to an edition of 300. More Patience dolls are scheduled to be released this fall.Who is Patience, you ask? She's a little girl just filled with curiosity, apparent in her eager eyes. Patience is a doll like no other: She's 14" tall with attitude as big as her head (meaning her head is delightfully...full!), and flirty eyes that move from side to side as she contemplates her next adventure. Patience is crafted of vinyl and hard-plastic, and has 14-points of articulation for loads of posing and fun, and her wardrobe is beyond charming. When she's around, you're sure to have endless Patience no matter WHAT is thrown your way!
Straight from the creative minds of Wilde Imagination and sculpted by Robert Tonner, Patience is our newest line that's sure to please doll collectors everywhere. The premiere doll Garden Patience debuted at the Tonner Summer Launch Party Weekend on August 16th to much excitement and acclaim - and this fall will see additional dolls debut.
This curious little girl is so expressive that she is just a blast to photograph. I really had fun taking these garden pictures of her, she is Garden Patience, after all.
The other garden pictures will have to wait until the bottom of the post, since there are so many important details to share. In this profile picture, you can see her rooted (or applied) lashes.
She has a 7 piece outfit, not counting her hair bow. I didn't realize how many layers it was until I started taking it off. The over skirt is made of 2 layers of a very soft tulle with embroidered flowers and lace trim with ribbon flowers appliqued. There is a ribbon bow on the back and a snap closure.
Underneath, there is a separate ivory satin dress with pretty little gathers across the bodice. It also has a snap closure.
Her head is fully posable. Her neck can turn to the left and right, tilt side to side (which makes her eyes move), and forward and back to look up and down. She has an articulated torso that can lean from side to side.
She has a ball joint in her knees.
Sorry there are so many undressed pictures, but that's a lot of articulation to show. Back in her lovely dress now, you can see her long red hair. Her hair is a wig, but it is glued onto her head. So you can't easily change the wig to change her look like you can with Ellowyne's removable wig. Her hair is soft, but it doesn't seem quite as silky as Ellowyne's wig. Maybe it is made of a different type of hair fiber. Her hair is tied in a topknot ponytail with a big pink ribbon on top and smaller ribbons with attached flowers cascading down each side.
Here's a little Patience and Peter Pan photo story.
