Out of the box: Sarah (Volks SD16 Daria)

Her default outfit and hair.
This is another doll where having slightly off-trend tastes made the acquisition so much easier:  Your average Volks Dolpa exclusive involves luck and lotteries to purchase, but Daria wasn't the most popular offering, and as a result she was available for preorder.  No lottery or second-hand searching necessary!

I don't know why she didn't sell-out; She's a lovely doll - fabulous face and a fantastically detailed fullset outfit (just the shoes are a work of art!) - but hey, there's no accounting for tastes.

Lovely though her default outfit is, I ultimately ended up keeping her primarily in very casual, very modern clothing.  Until the move, I generally kept her displayed with Grant (my Dollmore Glamor Model Suntan Mettaa - that's them up there in my site header), but since he's still boxed up, she's currently on display solo.

Modern style, with an Angell-Studio wig
For whatever reason, she's the doll that gets the most comments from friends and relatives who check out the doll collection, and the feature that gets the bulk of it are her eyes - her "big, sad eyes" as a friend of my husband's said.   I don't think she's particularly sad-looking myself (wistful, maybe) so I find the fact that so many people comment on it a little amusing.


  1. She's adorable! I love the one of her in the peach-colored blouse. I don't think she's sad-looking either!

    1. Thanks!

      I'm always glad to hear that someone else thinks she's not wearing a sad expression! :)
