Imagine my surprise a few days later when just such a boy landed on eBay with the Buy It Now option. It was like discovering black magic--I was a little freaked out, but I also wanted to figure out how to make it happen again.
The new boy recently arrived, and I think he's sensational. He's from 1974; a bit earlier than I would have guessed and among the last dolls with sprayed eyes. This means his head was painted to be a girl's, but he got it instead (probably happened on a late Friday afternoon or early Monday morning--we all know how that goes).
His eyelashes are fairly subtle, but they give him a slightly androgynous quality. Actually, his eyes are a bit mismatched--one has blue shadow while the other has white. One appears slightly larger and is a little smudged at one corner. One brow is faded while the other is not. As a bonus, he came wearing a very cool outfit (I do get tired of all those navy blue sweaters). Check out his glam, silver metallic sneakers!
Some dolls very emphatically tell you their names:
- Blond rocker hair
- Mismatched eyes
- Slightly androgynous
- Glam footwear
- Arrived from the Bromley area of South London
So far, Bowie's personality has been hard to pin down; laughing and joking one minute, brooding and serious the next. He has told the other boys that he wants to be a rock star when he grows up. He also apparently has a crush on a little blond girl named Rebel; he saw her picture on the Absolutely Sasha blog.
