  3. She's a real dark beauty!
    And you found a great fabric. Gives her more exotic, tropical look. I can see Esme in a tiki bar, drinking Mai Tai. :)

  7. Your Esme doll is gorgeous!!!! And she wears your dress very well! I have an Esme with very curly hair as well. She was the very first fashion doll I ever bought and I still think she is beautiful! Absolutely beautiful photos

    1. Hello April, do you have the ready to wear version with the bunch of curls? I would love to have her too, she is so lovely and her make-up is wonderful! I would like to change my Esmé's hair-do into one with such curls, but am afraid I would ruin the hair, so I leave it as it is. I would have to boil the hair, and who knows what will happen when I do! I'm glad you like the photos!

    1. Hello Chema, yellow is one of my favorite colours :-). I think it goes well with a lot of skin tones, and it is a sunny and happy colour. I'm super pale too, because I am red-haired, but don't hesitate to wear yellow clothes :-).
      This print is nice isn't it, I hadn't seen it before and liked it immediately.
      Have a wonderful weekend, hugs!

  14. Tonner dolls are so beautiful. I really love the painting of the faces on these dolls and they come with some lovely outfits. They are on my list, well at least one of them. How do you find their posing?

    I love the photos of your girl. The dress is really a stunning colour and design on her.

    1. Hello Alasse,
      I've been having a lot of fun lately with looking at all the Tonner dolls on the Dreamcastle Dolls Tonner Reference page. They have a very complete list and lots of photos of all the dolls ever made. I'm addicted to this overview lol!
      The painting of the faces is lovely on Tonner dolls, and the outfits are so well made. Posing is okay, but not supple like for instance Fashion Royalty dolls. Tonner dolls pose rather stiff usually. And this is only speaking from my personal experience, but older Tonner dolls sometimes get stiffer, especially at the neck joint, when not handled often. But unlike other fashion dolls like Gene Marshall or Fashion Royalty, the vinyl is very colour-fast and doesn't deteriorate or change colour (at least my dolls didn't, and I have owned a lot of Tonner dolls in the past).
      I'm glad you like the photos and the dress :-)!
      Who are on your wish list?

    2. Thank you for the tip on Dreamcastle Dolls. I know there is one for the Fashion Royalty dolls too so it's neat there is one for the Tonner dolls.

      As long as basic sit and stand work, I'm pretty okay with a doll's posing if they can just do the basics.

      I've always been drawn to the Deja Vu sculpts from Tonner however they rarely go up on the second hand market and when they do, they are usually quite pricey. Maybe if I get lucky, I may own one of those girls one day but I won't hold my breath!

    3. What I love the most about the Deja Vu line are the clothes, they are so amazing! Who knows, sometimes you can get an unexpected deal, maybe not now, but in the future. The prices of dolls are so unpredictable these days!

  17. Hi Linda!
    Esme is looking quite stunning in her new outfit. I love the fabric you chose to make this set, it really suits her lovely dark skin. I don't know a lot about Tonner dolls so it was also interesting to read your reply to Alasse. :)
    Hugs,

    1. Hello Xanadu, I'm glad you like Esmé in her new clothes :-). I'm also glad that you found my reply interesting! Whether one likes the appearance of Tonner dolls or not, a fact is that they are of exquisite quality and design. I don't know much about the other brand of Robert Tonner, Wilde Imagination, so that is my next research topic :-). Can you tell I'm a fan? ;-D
      Big hugs and have a great weekend!
