My sweet girl Julian was my first AG doll; I've had her since 1998. One of her eyes is starting to silver, but otherwise she's still perfect. I have to say that her pie bangs drive me crazy -- they're super-thick (like the rest of her wig) and long, but not long enough to pull back out of the way; they're always in her pretty blue eyes. But I love the color and texture of her wig. Julian's hair is much, MUCH thicker than any of my other dolls, all of whom are Mattel except for my two rewigged transitional dolls. As a general rule I'm a big fan of the Mattel molds and coloring, but I think Julian's soft makeup is beautiful. To me it makes her look like she has a gentle nature; her sweet face is surely why she's the peacemaker among all my dolls, and why I often call her my Juli-angel. Julian's definitely bigger than my other dolls, including my transitional #3 Tegan, but she doesn't have the linebacker shoulders that some dolls have. I like her best in blue, but she really does look good in every color.

Here she is with her hair curled -- it didn't last long, but it looked really pretty!
