Astra-A Winter Custom Sasha Doll

(SOLD)  Meet Astra!  Astra is a brand new one of a kind Sasha doll created for the Winter season 2013.  She began as a 1970's Sasha with badly falling hair.  She was very well played and well loved so has now been remade into a whole new personality!

 Astra wears handmade angora outfit with pink tights and an adorable cap.  Her "ginger gold" (like a very light brown) wig has is a high quality "synthetic mohair" which isn't mohair at all, but is soft, natural and strong, like real hair.  It can be styled in many ways.  I have cut it and modified it especially for her. 
 Her features have been completely repainted and sealed.  She has been restrung and holds a good pose.  Her demeanor is very sweet.  She does have shiny places on her face, etc., from her past life of being so well loved.  Her cheeks have been very subtly blushed, as Sasha did for some of her studio dolls, and accent her blue eyes.
 Astra's name means "star"...the very brightest stars traditionally shine in the winter!
 Astra is a one of a kind and can never be exactly duplicated.  She will be signed by me, with a certificate.  Her "adoption" fee is $350.  Overseas shipping is available.
