A New Do and Name That Girl Contest and Giveaway!


My girl finally has on her new wig from Sleeping Elf. I've had it here for a week or so but was a little hesitant to put it on her. The way these wigs are made doesn't leave a lot of room for hair so I had to give her a haircut first. I found out, I am not very good at that. She had frizzy ADG hair anyway and it was starting to look really bad. Luckily, I don't plan to change her hair anytime soon. I love wild, curly, red ragamuffin hair and that's exactly what she has now.

So with her new do, she needs a name. I was thinking of having a little contest. I am not very creative when it comes to names and thought that I would ask you all for help.

To give you some insight, I will tell you a little about how she has inspired me and how she has evolved. You all know I make glass beads on a torch, I had always wanted to sell them but didn't really make anything that stood out, then I discovered Blythe and was so inspired to make tiny necklaces, I finally took the plunge and opened shop. So with that in mind, and her crazy orange hair, anything fire related is a possibility. Also, as a kid, I loved Pippi Longstocking and Orphan Annie, both are red headed ragamuffins. I like quirky names for dolls, but am open to any and all suggestions.

If I choose your name, you will win a doll necklace. If you don't own a doll, I will give you a coupon good for $10.00 off any item in my shop and free shipping. If for some reason, I still can't decide on a name, I will enter everyone into a drawing to determine the winner.

Please post a comment with your suggestions along with your email address.
The contest will run through next Sunday August 16th, midnight. I will announce the winner Monday August 17th by 12 noon Pacific time.

My suggestions are Goldilocks because that is who she reminds me of at first glance, Pyra because it sounds like a girly version of Pyro, Peach because of the color of her hair, Blossom because of her hair color again, and Lyza because I think it sounds pretty!

Your girls looks really cute with her new hair.. Hope you find a name for her soon!

I love Piper, but I would like to suggest Paisley (the kaleidoscope of color), Ivy (green eyes) or Zoe (just because).

Hope you find a name for her!

Pepper. She looks like a Pepper to me.

Kim said...

I would name her Persimmon. Persi for short.
Maybe Poppy since those are red flowers...!

She looks fabulous Jenny - I love that new do! She definitely has a Pippi vibe going on - could you call her something in homage to her - maybe the Lotta part of Pippilotta or Mac - short for Mackrelmint one of Pippi's middle names? And I think she should wear mismatched stockings whenever possible ;) Totally OT but I once dressed up as Pippi and wired my hair with coathangers!!
