She has blue stationary eyes and painted features and her colouring is lovely. She has a platinum blonde wig.
Her 2 piece outfit has been made just for her and just needs the top piece of material fixing properly that peeks out from the top of the frock. It is a lovely mushroom pink satin like fabric and lined with a burgandy material on the jacket of the outfit and trimmed with lace and braiding.
