Hope arrived this morning, and I had to take a few photos. For her first portrait I chose an angel outfit - one of the ones that had been commissioned specially for Hope. If she looks 'familiar' it's because Hope is a "modified Nyssa" (one of Kaye's first BJDs) and so is my Miki elf, so they have a 'family resemblance'. Hope is my first Kaye Wiggs girl in the new sun-kissed resin, and the factory did a very nice job on her faceup (there's no choice, all KW dolls come with a faceup)
Hope came with very pale gray/blue glass eyes which looked a size too small, so I gave her some nice blue acrylic ones instead. Kaye Wiggs created Hope on September 11, 2011 in order to raise money for a special charity. Almost 500 were sold, making almost $100,000 for the charity. It's been quite some wait for Hope to arrive, and I'm glad she's finally here.
Hope came with this red Jojo wig, a gift from Grace at JPop dolls. From all the photos being posted of Hope on the various forums, it's clear she looks great in almost any wig.
