While I was searching for a doll for today’s post I was very surprised to discover that I had never featured my 35th Anniversary Midge so here she is as today’s Friday Girl.
Naomi gave me this set a long time ago. I think she was the first brand new reproduction doll I had. She came wearing her yellow and orange two piece swimsuit. Included in the set was a reproduction of “Senior Prom” a lovely green ballgown. I left Midge in her box for many years until lack of space on the shelf meant that she either came out of the box or went into storage. I had always wanted to put “Senior Prom” on a doll so she came out. The outfit is currently being worn by my vintage Midge.
I think that’s why Repro Midge has stayed in the background a little. Both Naomi and I have vintage Midge dolls. However, I think this one is a very pretty reproduction. She has the Titian hair, my vintage doll is a brunette. I always see Midge as a redhead in my mind’s eye. She also has beautiful big blue eyes. At present she is wearing “Golden Girl” #911 which is one of my favourite vintage dresses.
By the way, I don’t know if it is just my imagination but it seems to me that the default font which I’m typing in now is smaller than it used to be. I’ve typed the rest of the post in the medium font. Please let me know in comments if you would prefer that in future.
