Shortly after the T shirts and little girlie smock tops came the full length zipped hoodies followed by Judith’s next very successful design of the back fastening hoodies.
Today’s post features these hoodies, although only for the girls this time, as the lads are insisting on having their own post show next month.
My very pretty Trendon 1971 girl is wearing the white ‘girlie’ smock top that should have been featured in last week’s post but had missed being photographed in time. It is being worn with some pretty daisy patterned cropped leggings and converses.
Her blonde two-toned hair is one of the softest and silkiest of all my dolls.
A 1967 Frido Brown Cord NP has on a white hoodie over patterned full length leggings and UGG boots on her feet. After having taken these photos I remembered that these leggings should have had a pink hoodie with them and not this white one (so after these next three photos I’ll add in one of the correct hoodie.)
This doll’s hair, since being very kindly washed by Sarah Price for me on one of her visits (as it was rather grey from the storage dust that had seeped into her original box) is now as lovely as the girl’s above.
Her eye painting is referred to as the ‘open’ eye style.
Here she is in the pink hoodie that exactly matches the colour in her leggings and pink UGG boots (which unfortunately I don’t seem to have a full length photo of. Typical!)
The next three photos (though not my best and could have been better!) are especially for Ronny as they are of Miss Lippy, a Frido 1967 Dungaree NP with her damaged lips from being force fed by her previous little mother.
I can just picture the scene and wonder if she had to do the ’round and round flying aeroplane action’ like we’ve had to on occasions before it got into her little mouth.
Miss Lippy often likes to wear this jade green colour.
My apologies for these rather dark photos as when I arrived at the photoshoot it had started raining and having travelled there I didn’t want to waste the time and opportunity.
Harper is a Trendon doll from around 1970 that has been customised (and named) by Shelly into this most attractive girl.
As you can see she has the wider face that I so love and is wearing a lilac/white three piece set that I have put together for the slightly cooler Summer days.
Unfortunately yet more dark photos. This 1967 Frido Dungaree girl is one of Dee’s favourites of my dolls.
She has a slightly sulky look which I find quite attractive as normally the Frido/Trendon dolls are usually more on the pretty-pretty side….whichI find somewhat boring!
She has on a back fastening hoodie and navy leggings and finished of with JJ lace boots.
A Frido 1966 Brown Cord Developmental girl who came in a rare original box labelled ‘Brown Cord’ (as normally these brunette haired girls always wore the Gingham dresses but she was a ‘special’ lot to be included in a doll show.)
A red hoodie over black jumper and leggings with JJ red boots on her feet.
These Developmental dolls had the larger heads and very slightly taller and chunkier bodies with the longer arms of the NP dolls.
Here we have Annaleise, a Trendon 1970s? falling haired brunette Gingham doll, re-rooted by Jackie Rhydstrom in an attractive lilac based outfit which I think tones beautifully with her auburn hair..
She normally has her hair plaited but as a change today I have allowed her to let it hang loose.
I love this lilac and white stripped hoodie.
Next is my Gotz 1960s Bettina mohair re-root who has on one of the newer back-fastening hoodies sporting another idea of Judiths, with some cut -out daisies to adorn the front, to match the daisy flowered pattern on her full length leggings.
She is a Gotz pale skinned girl with somewhat of a film star dramatic look. ( think that I’m right in saying that she was Bettina’s first ever re-root.)
She always looks good in pink as it enhances the colour of her lips.
Another back fastening hoodie, on this 1966 Frido Developmental Jeans girl. I love how it looks with her purple spotted leggings and JJ snow boots.
It goes really well with her grey eyes and ‘silvered’ (due to oxidisation of the original paint) eye-brows.
I’m attracted to her rather serene and calm facial look.
Oh dear, yet more of these dark and dismal photos but I just haven’t the time to spend in Photoshop lightening each and everyone. Will just have to accept that Autumn and Winter is approaching and the best of the natural day light has passed for this year.
I’m not sure that this was the doll for this outfit being a brunette but was running out of dolls to dress at the time. Rather thinking that it should have been put on a blonde girl as it used to be.
A 1969 Gotz No-navel with her little pixie shaped face and cute tiny chin.
Lastly today we have a 1968 Frido Fringe waif wearing her white back-fastening hoodie and some attractive spotty blue/white leggings.
In spite of her rather badly trimmed hair I do think that she has a pretty wider face. (Sarah Williams sent me the ribbon which is a perfect colour match!)
My apologies for the usual stray hairs across their faces but it has been slightly on the breezy side here and as much as I try to remove them they blow back just as I’m taking their photos…. but luckily it is more the Dollydoodle outfits that we are focusing on at the moment.
Continuing with the next stage of the Dollydoodles developments next Sunday.
