I expanded my doll collection a few months ago when I bought my first Antionette. She is a Glowing Muse Antionette Cameo. I still can't spell her name right without looking it up, but she is a beauty.

I have tried the brunette wig on her and she is lovely in it. I need to take some pictures of her in it and try the red wig on her too.

Her figure is different than both the Gene and Tyler sized dolls. Her bust is smaller, and her waist and hips are a little larger. I decided that I better buy her at least one dress that fits her because I don't know when I will get around to sewing for her.

I bought "Precocious" She is adorable in it.

Here is Antionette wearing Ann Harper's outfit "A Sensible Notion". The dress fits her very well, though her hands were hard to fit through the sleeves. The wig is perfect, but it is a good thing you can't see the red shoes she is wearing.

I was inspired by another doll collector to work on making my photos more interesting. I bought a couple of posters at Michael's the other day. I love the garden backdrop, it looks great in the close-ups. I still need to figure out how to make the backdrop work in the full body shots.

I love this photo, she looks so sweet, but I wished I had straightened her sash before I took the picture.

I hope to have another photo session will Antionette soon.

I have 2010 "No Frill" Antoinette doll, 100 LE. She comes in a plastic (no box), nude and no stand. Antoinette does have big hands, but you could remove her hands by gently pull it for easy dressing and gently push it back. Just in case you need new style wigs, look for it in monique.com or Ebay. For 16" Tonner doll such as Tyler, Antoinette & friends (Deeanna & Peggy is 17" tall), the wig size is 5-6. Size 5 is too small, may suit Avantguard dolls.

Thank you mraasina and Belladonna for the tip about Antionette's hands.
