Here is the doll I am entering into the Li'l Blue Boo / Dharma Trading Ugly Upcycle Challenge!
You might remember her a little differently from an earlier post...she had lighter eyes and lips and was called Hope.  Well, not too long after that post, another doll maker decided to name a dark skinned doll she made Hope.   I was not 100% satisfied with her face, so I decided to re-do it and give her a new name to go with her new expression, and hopefully some good new energy.  I am thrilled with the way she turned out!  My family thinks she looks like a dark version of Li'l Sally, which really made me chuckle as I spent a lot of time looking at Li'l Blue Boo's photos when I was piecing the dress.  I am also sure you have all noticed the dress, and yes, that is my special doll portrait from Stephanie Corfee printed on the front of it!  I am not licensed to sell Li'l Blue boo doll dresses so you will be seeing this design show up on doll t-shirts at first, and maybe some kid sized stuff too, along with my slogan "individuality is healthy" :)  More details soon!  Please take a second and stop by the Facebook Fan Page and vote on your favorite picture of Zoe...the winning pic will be submitted to the challenge.
Thanks!  XOXO Debra
