Doll-A-Day 2017 #254:Lu Ann

  Today we're looking at a doll I got at Salvation Army last week. She's LuAnn.



LuAnn is a Heidi Ott doll.



Heidi Ott is a Swiss doll artist.



LuAnn is 12" tall.


She has a vinyl head,chest plate, and limbs,and a stuffed cloth body.


When I closely looked at her hair I noticed there were different shades of hair, and even a white one!


That's when I realized she had real human hair.
 

That kind of creeps me out. I think Ivy thought it was because I thought they got it form dead bodies! She said, "They just cut it you know." I know, but it's still kind of gross.

"Really?"

LuAnn's head can tilt side to side and up and down,but her limbs aren't poseable. They don't hold a pose, since they are cloth at the shoulders and hips.



LuAnn has painted features.

What a pretty face.

Her hair looks more brown in person. in these pictures it looks a bit red.



Apart from her big hat,she's wearing a dress,pinafore,and bloomers...





...and these strange things that look like spats, but I think they're just to protect her ankles from the string that holds her in her box.


Here are a few more pictures of the very photogenic LuAnn.




See you again tomorrow for,oh...how about a doll?

  1. The Dancer has donated her hair a couple of times to a charity that makes wigs for kids with cancer, or issues like alopecia. But I might feel weird also, having a doll with human hair.
