Can anyone guess who this used to be?

She had been one of my dream dolls for a long time. When I got her home two years ago, it was love at first sight...until I changed her out of her default outfit. All she really was was a palette-swap of the original Aika, and it turns out that dolls with wine red hair are impossible to redress.

I gave her a braid boil-perm that improved her looks a bit, but I still couldn't deal with the wine-red hair! But Pure Neemo dolls are too precious to sell...So after a long deliberation I asked Kristen to rip her hair out and replace it with Color Magic Midnight saran. I liked the curls so much that I had to do it again, though!

So here is my customized Princess Aika. I think her new black hair really brings out the purple in her eyes!

She's adorable! The new hair definately gives her more options for clothing.

Thank you! It was kind of a drastic split-second decision to go for it. Even though she originally had wine-red hair, her eyebrows were black. I wonder if it was fate?

These dolls are so hard to find and such an investment that it would have broken my heart to have to sell her because I wasn't happy with her hair color.
