Meet Catalina!

(SALE PENDING) Catalina...a baby Sasha for January!
It has been a very long time since I worked on a custom Sasha baby; and in fact, it's been too long since I worked on any custom Sasha creation.  I have had these baby parts here for over a year.. in a bin just waiting.  She began with a Sasha baby boy head and an early sexed baby girl's torso and matching arms and legs.  I couldn't just "parts" this doll out - she needed to be a new creation!

Catalina has been restrung, and all her parts thoroughly cleaned.  She does have a shiny appearance; after all, her parts came from two Sasha babies that were very, very well loved!  The head had features damage, and all the features were removed and repainted in a Sasha studio baby style.  Her mohair wig of natural fiber is also inspired by Sasha Morgenthaler's studio babies.

I didn't want to dress Catalina in a new looking outfit, rather I wanted her to look like an older studio baby, so she is dressed in a handmade antique sunsuit from the 1940's.  It has a little yellowish staining on the front and a seam under one arm that is a little open, but it all adds to her charm.  Like Sasha's early babies, her cheeks are very subtly and  gently blushed.

Catalina is $195 and will arrive with a certificate and signed on her foot.  International shipping available - Paypal accepted.  :)
