I Have a Face Now - Sort of ....

Had to do something to acknowledge my first anniversary. Decided to give myself a "face" of sorts. Not my real face - I do a mean "invisible" in real life - but a doll who "resembles" me. Of course, the complexion isn't right, but the ones that matched complexion-wise didn't have the right hair type or the rounded features ... yada, yada. So behold, Vanessa of the Get Set Club or G-Five dolls, represents me here, on Twitter, and on a few other online sites.

I might even post her on Facebook. Maybe ....

I can't find a doll that looks like me... the Asian dolls are too light skinned and the Hispanic dolls don't have Asian features... I would be somewhere in the middle lol

Hmmm ... finding a mini-me doll is difficult. Like you say, features can match but then the complexion is off. Or the complexion is right but the features are off. Sigh. But having a "face" showing looks better than having a head outline. Also, Vanessa is from a small company, so her face won't likely be all over the Internet ;-D.

Are you seeking a doll resembling your icon - a deeper tan or middle brown complected Asian-featured doll?

(And I am aware that Asian-featured need not be just "slanted" eyes; Jakks Pacific Jaz doll shown with the Rebelde guys doesn't have exaggeratedly tilted eyes, but she looks "Asian" to me.)

nah not really... the doll in my icon is Navajo Princess barbie :) she is part of my collection and is actually quite good as a mini-me, similar skin tone and looks sorta east asian except my face isn't so round hehe

I much prefer being represented by my teddy bear or bunny though :D

Your bunny is incredibly cute. (I don't think I've seen your teddy bear.) I live with an adorable cat - Louie - but his haughty mien far exceeds any I could summon. Kof, kof ... don't know where he gets that from LOL. Yes, I do. From the long line of cat-royalty he descends from. And me so lucky to serve him.

Ahhh...yes. Minime's if you're not a celebrity is hard to find. I've given up on my minime. But your minime look very look ^_^

Thanks, Niel!

With the glasses, in the b/w photo, she seems to capture "my" look. Perhaps, it is the glasses? Imagine a Mini me with just glasses ... me as the Invisible Woman. LOL.
