*** Meet my Mikaela ***
Mikaela is a One of a Kind artist modified doll. Lovingly hand painted out of a previously loved Kanani Akina, Girl of the Year 2011, doll, that's archived and no longer available for purchase at retail stores.
Kanani's factory paint was carefully removed to be painted by hand and sealed, to give her her unique new facial features, to create Mikaela. She has been made as a collector's doll and even though her new facial features have been sealed, it may get shine marks with rough playing. For this reason she is not recommended for young or inexperienced doll lovers.
Mikaela's soft body it's the older style preferred by most, made out of thicker cotton. Her head it's held in place by a long, uncut neck string. Her limbs were cleaned, lightly buffed and tightened, so she can stand unsupported and hold posses. Due the weight of her new wig though, being a bit heavier than a regular AG wig, I always recommend rewigged dolls to be placed in a doll stand when displayed to prevent unwanted fall that may damage the dolls.
Please, keep in mind she was made out of a previously loved doll that was restored back to nee condition the best of my abilities but signs of previous handling may remain unnoticed, like shine marks, that I could have missed.
Mikaela's beautiful hair is a brand new wig designed for EDD that was never released. Her wig is incredible soft and easy to manage with a knee length, in hand dyed brown to blonde ombre. It has been styled in a side braid and will be placed in a hairnet for traveling to keep it in place. Light restyling may be needed when removing the hairnet.
Mikaela's eyes are original Kanani's eyes, old quality also preferred by most. They have been enhanced with added doll lashes. Her ears are pierced and comes wearing new silver ball stud earrings from AG. Her finger nails and toe nails have been painted and glossed. She comes dressed as pictured, with a brand new "Purr-fect Dot" dress and "Sunny Sights" flats from the new Mix and Match collection of AG. Both are brand new, never played with and were chosen by me at the store.
Mikaela, as all my dolls, has an Artist's Certificate of Authenticity of her custom work including signed printed photos for your records. She also brings with her a golden heart doll necklace and an adjustable AG bracelet, as token of appreciation. Thank you for choosing an It's a Doll Affair doll!
