This is just a drive-by update to introduce:
My mom found her at a yard sale a couple of weeks ago and finally brought her over yesterday. (She's also the one who named her Olivia, so I went with it.)
I've wanted a mannequin for ages! She's incredibly tall. I'm not crazy about her makeup, so I fully plan to repaint her. I've said this before, but I have a a big super love for dolls and have some experience painting my ball-jointed, blythe, and pullips-- so this shouldn't be too difficult. Right now her lipstick is frosted pink eighties horribleness, which isn't doing her any favors. So, a makeover is in order whenever I can possibly find the time.

Right now, Olivia is wearing my lovely '60s flapper-style dress that I've only had a chance to wear once, and a big hat that I recently thrifted because I couldn't pass up such a Lydia Deetz style thing. I figure she can wear some of my lovelier things that don't get pulled out of the closet often enough.
