Meet Lila


Lilian ful length, originally uploaded by JLP2000.

Lila was formerly known as Lilian by the Hearts for Hearts company. She joined our household a little over a week ago. This is here "meet outfit." She has a proportionally large head compared to her body, but I like that - after all, some of my favorite characters have large heads: Charlie Brown and the Peanuts, Ziggy, the kids in Joan Walsh Anglund art work, the Lati Yellow BJD kids, and Lalaloopsys! I think Lila probably is closer to "normal" than any of those. But she isn't as extreme as Blythe. I am trying my best resist her!

She is lovely! I am smitten with this doll line too, but trying hard to resist. I love Dell, Consuelo and Tipi, but the others are just as lovely.
Congrats on your new addition!

Oooh, Lila is cute! She looks like she would make a great companion. Just sayin. Good luck with the resistance, but I think it may be futile. :)

Glad Lila joined your family. Delta joined ours on Monday and I love her.

Me again.......Jen, do you still have your Jody/Eileen? I just ordered a DIM Eileen and need to know what size eyes, clothes & shoes she can wear? If you can help me with this, I'd be ever so grateful. Thanks in advance!
:o)

Congratulations on getting your DIM Sweet Eileen! Did you get the resin or new vinyl version? I do have mine still (she is Hannah - Jodi is a Bambicrony Roko - their faces are similar, but Hannah is taller).
Hannah has 14mm eyes and 47mm shoes. She is thinner than the 10" Anne Estelle dolls. I have made most of her clothes, but she does have a pair of khaki pants that were made for Ken that fit very well!
Have fun with your new girl!

Thanks Jen! I got the soft vinyl version. I can hardly wait for her to arrive so I can start playing! :o)
Sorry that I got them mixed up. For the shoes, did you mean 4.7?
So she can wear Ann Estelle's clothes okay, but they will be a little loose? I am so shocked that she can wear Ken's pants! She looks thicker than that in all the photos I have seen. But that's good to know. Should be easy to find clothes for her. Can she wear Ken's shirts too? She might decide to be a little tomboy! LOL!
Thanks again!

I don't have a lot of Ken shirts to try on mine. I would say that Hannah has large hands, so the sleeves need to be fairly large or have elastic or cuffs that can open and close. I would go with Boneka 10" doll clothes before AE clothes - DIM Sweet Eileen is much thinner than AE.

Thanks Jenn! I didn't even think about the size of her hands being an issue. Your help is much appreciated! :o)
