Glitter Glam Is It... For a While

Glitter Glam doll by Madame Alexander (has an over sized head, but I like her anyway).

Glitter Glam (GG) is an 18-inch doll by Madame Alexander made exclusively for Dollie & Me.  I was inspired to purchase this doll after Travel Friends Kenya arrived.  Kenya and GG have similar facial features and I think Kenya will be the perfect doll for GG.

I took the following series of photos of GG in the box and post release.

Removed from box, still attached to box liner, almost free
Removing GG from the box liner was not difficult after each cord tie was untied.
Free at last and striking first pose.
The discount code inserted in the box liner was a pleasant surprise.
The back of GG's box illustrates other Dollie & Me dolls.
GG poses with her sisters, other 18-inch dolls by Madame Alexander.  The doll standing next to GG, Gabbi, was sold through Costco originally, but was a 2009 eBay purchase for me.  She is from the Alexander Girlz line.  The seated twins, Patience (Friends Boutique collection) and Passion (Friends 4 Life collection), were purchased from Walmart in 2011 and 2009, respectively.  Patience has poseable arms and legs.


A portion of GG's doll inventory entry is shared below:

From the higher-end line of 18-inch  dolls by Madame Alexander,  doll is vinyl with cloth torso, has black rooted hair styled in two side ponytails and brown sleep eyes.  Wears black shirt, pink shrug, pink skirt with black tutu, multicolored striped leggings, black high-top vinyl sneakers with pink laces.   Free$39.99 Ordered from Zulily.com with  referral credits.

GG takes one final photo.

GG will be one of the last dolls to arrive in 2014.  I am expecting two more that were ordered some time ago.  Other than that, GG is it!  The plan is not to purchase another doll this year.  With 2015 right around the corner and my focus directed elsewhere for a while, this should be easy to accomplish.

The fact that my doll buying has temporarily ceased will not keep me away from this blog.  I have several projects that I am in the midst of completing and will share the results of those in future blog posts.

    1. Thank you April. The colorful fashion is what caught my eye and influenced the purchase, in addition to the different head sculpt that I did not have until now.

  2. I like those tights as well. They remind me of the Little Miss Matched socks.

    1. The tights do remind of Little Miss Matched socks.

  3. She is cute, but Patience and Passion stole the post. They are so adorable. I've seen them before on your blog, but they are extra cute here.

    1. Thank you, Vanessa. I prefer Patience and Passion's head sculpt over GG's, too.
