|18-inch My Twinn Friend upon arrival|
Near the end of December 2014, the My Twinn folks offered 18-inch My Twinn Friend dolls for $39.99. After browsing available dolls by selecting desired complexion, hair color, and eye color options, I found the perfect doll to own in memory of my long-time friend who passed away December 6th.
Prior to placing the order, I was concerned the head and body would not be proportionate. My worries were valid. They are slightly off, but not as far off as I had imagined.
I took several photos of Little T, the name I have chosen for her. The photos include her first snapshot (shown above, as she was when she arrived, still in box) and several others of her modeling clothing made for other 18-inch dolls. The final photo is the vision I had for her when the order was placed.
|Using a coupon code at order checkout, I received the free blue and white striped dress shown in this image.|
|Shoes were not included with the pretty yellow and pink outfit of top and pants that were included. The word, PEACE and a peace symbol are on front of shirt.|
|This profile photo shows the length and style of the wig I chose. Before turning completely white, my friend's hair was jet black and naturally curly. At its normal length is was almost as long as Little T's.|
|One of my 18-inch Madame Alexander dolls, Passion, allowed Little T to temporarily borrow her yellow sandals while she borrowed another doll's sneakers.|
|Little T tried on American Girl Julie's casual outfit of orange embroidery-embellished tunic, purple gaucho pants and brown boots.|
|The Magic Attic doll starter fashion is a snug fit on her wider body and the shoes are too short. She looks cute in it, however.|
|This fashion belongs to another 18-inch Madame Alexander doll (I believe). Like the next Alexander fashion, it fits her body and feet.|
|This is the final fashion Little T modeled before wearing the outfit purchased specifically for her.|
A school portrait of my friend dressed in a Catholic school uniform at age 6 or 7, inspired the outfit I chose for Little T. The doll, dressed in her own school uniform, captures that moment in my friend's life to a T.
