Meet Madalyn.

I painted this little girl last night because with storms predicted for the rest of the week I didn't know of any other time I could do it and still stick to my plan. Madalyn was made with a Volks Excellent Mini A body and RestoreDoll hair in Allaglow. You'd think it'd take less time to root a mini doll than the full-size ones, but that head actually has quite a bit of scalp space! ^o^ I kept my promise and styled her hair like Azone Rocket Rabbits Caty. I had to use some Water Wax to keep the front layers from falling into her eyes. It didn't work that well. ^__^;...

Madalyn's dark eyes looks weird to me. I hardly ever give my dolls brown eyes. I don't think I've ever been completely thrilled with a mini doll I've made, even though I'm fond of them in general. She kind of looks like she has no nose in this picture, doesn't she?

Oh i love her! Cute little girl! Her eyes color is nice. No nose in the pic? That makes her even cuter! XD

Thank you ^_^! I guess the natural choice with blonde hair is blue eyes, but I thought that would be boring. ^o^

I like the blond hair-brown eyes combination. :) I think brown eyes are very difficult to paint, but you did a wonderful job. And the hair style is very, very cute!

I think Mini heads and A heads are pretty close in terms of scalp-space... lots of stuff to root. That reminds me, I need to get start on rooting, too!

Thank you! ^_^

I admit that painting her eyes brown was hard because I always use dark brown for the top and bottom of the eye. I was afraid her eyes would look too flat.

Now, the N-head takes no time at all to root! Neither does the NEO-head. It's strange about the mini head, but at least it allows you to try more hairstyles.

Good luck with your rooting! ^o^

eeee she is TOO cute! :) I love that haircolor, I'll have to remember it. Blonds with brown eyes are a favorite conbination of mine :)

Thank you! ^_^

Allaglow is a nice blended color. It's pretty bright yellow, but with light lemony streaks.
