All the women in my family have huge round eyes and we were from southern China and Vietnam. Our closest look-a-like doll is #25, rather than the Asian JLY or Jess. I think in certain angles and lighting her eyes can look a little bit almond-shaped, though I don't think all folks coming from Asia necessarily have almond-shaped eyes. It's just that the deep brown eyes and the straight black, deep brown hair that gave me the impression she was Asian (and no, not all Asians have straight hair, and yes, some, including myself, have shades of dark brown in the hair).
I guess that's why I like this doll so much. She has features that don't necessarily force her to be defined as part of any one particular race or ethnic group.
Thanks, those were very nice pictures.
