So the comments on the photos were a lot of "wow, 28 looks just like Marisol!" Now, I don't have Marisol, but I do have 28, and I absolutely love her.
Her hair is a blend of dark and light brown strands that falls just below her shoulders, with the same part as Marisol's. The hair on the left side of the part near her face is longer than on her right, which is rather cute and probably adds to the styling capabilities.
Her eyes are a nice dark brown - not so dark to be black, but very rich nonetheless.
I've noticed that in halogen lighting, as on the website photos, the lighter bits of her hair stand out, which makes her hair seem much lighter and very close to the skintone. But in daylight, her hair looked much darker.
Also, with her arrival in pigtails, her hair is rather stiff and clumpy along the part in the back, but I'm told that should get fixed with brushing.
#28 in Josefina's outfits as requested! Well, I only have the Weaving one, but still, here ya go!
(I love that outfit so much! I had to play with the rebozo as many ways as I could )
Also, I managed to get the short hair into a ponytail. TA DA!
I've been able to do loads of hairstyles, but I've lost the blog post with photos.
I like best to do two pigtails, a single ponytail, or to pull bits of hair back from the front and secure with barrettes or bobby pins or the like.
I've also done two french braids, two regular braids, a half ponytail, which all took patience. And then I've done lots of styles that weren't really planned but made up as I went along, using twists and small braids and stuff. Last night I did a variation on the pony-veil that was really cute - one tiny braid from the hair next to the part at her forehead, a tiny braid further back along the part, and a tiny braid from the hair above her ear, then I pulled each of the three braids back and braided them together a short amount, then put in a barrette. I did that on each side and it was really cute.
Headbands - either the regular kind or tied ribbons - generally look really nice, too.
