After trying all of those different wigs on the bald Nanea doll that I bought, I picked the winner! Nanea now has a twin brother, Benny! See the previous post for the whole story about this custom doll, but this was a bald Nanea with the eye makeup removed and the original hazel eyes swapped to brown. I wanted Nanea to have a brother, but I wasn't sure that a short wig would make him look enough like a boy. In that case, I figured that Nanea could have a sister . . .
I knew that I was going to try on all kinds of wigs, because no one online has posted sample pics of Nanea dolls wearing much besides their original wigs. And the second wig that I tried on was a Monique Johnny in dark brown. I knew this was going to be a boy! So, after all the wigs were tried on, I took the Nanea clothes off of the doll, put the dark brown wig on, Logan's meet sneakers, the hat from the Sun & Fun outfit, and the polo shirt and pants from the Truly Me boy dolls.
There was Benny! He is named for one of Dad's cousins who looked just like this when he was young. Plus, that cousin is really great and has tons of personality -- which this doll does, too.
Benny is still getting introduced to all the other dolls here, and he's glad that there are six other fellows in the house to play with him! He and Nanea are now practically inseparable, though, and making all kinds of plans to practice their swimming and diving together (pretend water, of course). Pop is going to build a Rain Forest hut for them to live in, and they are hoping to find a pet parrot along the way!
