Meet Clara!

on

Recently my mom made a very special addition to her collection: a custom doll she created to be Clara, Josefina’s sister! She bought a very TLC Josefina on eBay and re-wigged her with a Marie-Grace wig she had removed from another doll during a customization project.

I think she looks just like the book illustrations!

I made her “meet” outfit and had a lot of fun with it! I made a second copy, too, and it is for sale in my Etsy shop! https://www.etsy.com/shop/DollsandSmiles

I just love creating friends and family characters for the already existing historical dolls. I think Josefina is happy to have her sister Clara as part of the collection!

  3. This is a really neat idea! I really like it when people make book characters. If I ever find a silver-eyed Kaya, then I would turn her into Kaya’s blind sister (whose name is evading me right now…)

    Absolutely special! She looks just like Clara and the outfit is so beautiful. I am glad others have a chance to purchase the outfit, too. ❤. The photo backdrop is so realistic… what is it?

    I made Mariana, Josefina’s Puabloan friend from her birthday book, out of a well loved Kaya. I did give her longer hair though. She has since become a modern girl but ranks high in my favourite doll list.
