To: Kay-aline

I don't know how many of you have seen the movie Coraline- but in my family (well, me and my sisters) we LOVE Tim Burton! My sister Kaylee is especially in love with the movie Coraline, so Kassie and I thought it would be fun to make a doll that looked just like her.
My sister had white hair at the time (hair school girls, what are they thinking?) and she has this amazing yellow dress that's her favorite. We decided to recreate that look. Here's Kassie painting on her red lips.
Here's the doll complete with pearl earrings and textured tights!
We even included a box of button eyes for Kaylee. If you haven't seen the movie, see it!

We didn't tell Kaylee we were sending it, we thought it'd be fun for it to surprise her. She used scissors to cut open the package, cutting off some of the doll's yarn hair! The next day she was getting her roots done and her hair dresser made some sort of mistake because when Kaylee started to wash her hair, it was breaking off in clumps (Here's where Kassie and I screamed "voodoo doll!"). She has since dyed her hair red to try and save it from falling out of her head, and is taking much better care of her Kay-aline doll.
