This is Trixie. She is a bit of an impulse buy, and technically she was only a "faceplate", not a full doll.
When the new Fairyland Realfee face sculpt, "Sira", was introduced a few months ago I instantly fell in love. The face reminded me so much of my eldest daughter, Lisa, when she was just an infant. For several months after she was born Lisa always had the tip of her tongue hanging out, even for portraits!
Trouble was the Sira faceplate is not all that easy to come by, especially if you are downsizing your collection and not wanting to buy additional dolls. Sira is a limited edition "event faceplate", a gift with purchase incentive. You can only get one by placing an order of a qualifying dollar amount, or by buying from the second hand Marketplace.
So when my friend and doll artist, "Ban Sidhe", mentioned that she had ordered during the promotional period I asked her if she had qualified for the limit edition special gift faceplate, the Sira.
She had indeed, but had no specific plans for the qualifying gift faceplate and agreed to not only sell it to me, but to modify the tongue to a shorter, rounded shape and to give the modified faceplate a faceup before mailing it to me.
When Trixie arrived she immediately took over Tingle's body and pronounced it a perfect fit. Poor Tingle might be moving along to a new home shortly as I truly do intend to limit myself to only two dolls. I like that Trixie's large, upturned elfish ears and happy, mischievous expression are a better match for the happy, playful Flame.
