Welcome to my version of Ping Lau's newly released 32" toddler, LEONIE. My version is biracial with 100% human hair, A.A. curl and texture. She has full rotatable arms and head that attaches to a vinyl upper torso which connects to a custom body with jointed legs that extend to the top of the vinyl legs. The arms and legs are 3/4 filled with plastic weighting pellets and tightly topped with fiberfill. The tushy area has been filled and weighted with a securely closed packet of weighting pellets. The fabric body, vinyl torso and head are filled with fiberfill. Leonie weighs a very manageable 8 pounds.
She was painted with numerous layers of GHSP, in a custom palette created specifically for her, and protected with matte varnish throughout the painting process. The finger and toe nails have a neatly manicured look with slight white tips and a clear glossy finish. Leonie has green Eyeco eyes that are accented with upper rooted lashes and lightly painted eye brows.
The full head of hair is easily styled with a thorough misting of a water/hair conditioner mix applied from a spray bottle. Protect all the painted vinyl and face from being sprayed. Working from the ends up, gently use a wide toothed comb. The naturally springy hair can be lengthed using a hair gel product specific for A.A. hair. I use (very sparingly) "Aunt Jackie's Don't Shrink Elongating Curling Gel" on only the face framing hair.
Leonie comes with three brand new outfits, chosen specifically for her and her coloring. She wears a toddler size 2 and 12 to 18 months in shoes. Included are three pairs of shoes, one pair of white frilly socks and all hair adornments. Crochet toys are to be considered as props and are not included.
Leonie is from an open edition and comes with a COA, authenticating that she is a legimate/legal kit, not a stolen copy of Ping Lau's work.
