My daughter was digging around in my doll stuff and found this old wig I got somewhere. I decided to put it on my brown-eyed Battat doll and make AG's 1824 girl Josefina.
Here's a close-up of her face. The skin tone is a little lighter than the official Josefina doll, but I think it works well with the wig. I also used the braided headband from Addy's retired hairstyling kit I got on sale. I put the wig on over her existing hair and fastened it all into a ponytail in the back.
Josefina is one of my favorite historical characters from AG. I like her stories, and I think the doll and her collection are beautiful. Josefina didn't get any major new releases with Beforever, so I'm looking forward to her new Journey book and mini doll in the fall. In the meantime, I took a picture of my Josefina collection to share.
The first book on the left is one of Josefina's short stories that I found at a thrift store. Next is the American Girl Club book, which had pictures, activities, and historical information about the first six AG characters, including Josefina. My doll is wearing an official AG dress I got on clearance, and I also bought the mini doll and the Meet Josefina book on sale from AG's website. I'm not sure where I got the little stuffed animal, but it reminds me of Josefina's goat Sombrita, though it might actually be a horse. Are you looking forward to new items for Josefina?
