Shirley Temple doll **Updated**

My mother has been passed away for three years now and she just loved Shirley Temple. I have been meaning to make a Shirley Temple doll in honor of her, but I’ve been waiting till I had more practice. I would love to hear any and all suggestions for a good kit to use for this (and hair!). Toddler or large baby with a mature looking face is preferred. Kinda like Riley and Shyann but not Riley and Shyann lol…

Kitten is really cute! It doesn’t have to be a BB kit either just in case someone has an idea.

I think the Arianna’s by Reva Schick would be perfect!

Those are both cute options, but doesn’t Shirley Temple need dimples?

Oh wow! I was wondering if you could add them! I was about to try and compile a list of all open eye babies with dimples…But if that was the case, I could choose whichever one looked most like her facial shape.

I wonder if you could get those dimple to be smaller. I happen to have an Arianna kit. I’m trying to imagine how Shirley Templish she would look with dimples…

I made dimples with my dremel.

She is cute. I could see her with blue eyes and dimples.

Were they smaller dimples than the pressed in kind? Do you have a photo of that doll? You didn’t have any problem with the vinyl after that? I guess I should practice on a test piece.

I wish Bonnie would come show her Shirley Temple! I misspelled her BB name. It is @windeec
