๐Ÿฆ‹ Marzi ๐Ÿฆ‹

This is my Gotz doll, Marzi. Sheโ€™s just a little bigger than your average AG doll, and the only doll I have (I donโ€™t count dolls of licensed characters). As is often the case with my toy companions, she is named after a favorite food of mine, in this case, marzipan. ๐Ÿ™ˆ

Iโ€™ve had Marzi for a couple of years now, and wanted her for so long before I could have her, that at the time, Tacky (takinoue on FA) even drew me getting her in the mail (though I couldnโ€™t have her and wouldnโ€™t for some time):

You can tell this is older because itโ€™s from way before I switched to my current full-squirrel character. ๐Ÿ˜‰

When I did get Marzi, she was a little dream of a doll. Ball jointed and just gorgeous, especially for a play-doll. I got her a little My Little Pony dress and bow, which were cute enough on her. But then I couldnโ€™t connect with her for some reason.

I think itโ€™s because dolls need to be more old fashioned for me to connect with them, and Marziโ€™s dress made her anything but that. So, eventually, she went into storage.

Recently though, I found the perfect dress, the perfect shoes, the perfect accessories. And with it all put together, it worked! Now she sits in permanent display in my library, looking to me as though she could have escaped from any of my childrenโ€™s books. She feels like a suitable companion to my bears. ๐Ÿ’•
