Once a year I typically try to get a special doll done for my birthday. Well this year was an OOAK by Ping Lau. You can view her work here.
My little girl is around 12 inches tall and wearing my favorite color. She didn't come with shoes, but I found some sandals that would fit her. Another request was that she would be holding a doll. Here are some pictures of her. Can you see any resemblance to my daughter?
I belong to an online doll club called We Love Black Dolls. Our club doll for 2008 just happened to be one from Ping Lau but done in resin. My special girl this year was done in clay. They display really well together. Here is my girl displayed with our club doll Zahara.
Stay tuned to see what my special doll will be for next year. I think I already have in mind what she will be.
