Piper, without a doubt resembles Solange & Beyonce Knowles. She has such a "real person" look to her that some of the typical Barbie's don't have. I will own at least two more Stardolls, the next one to purchase will be the blonde with the side ponytail. I know I have one awesome blonde (Danika) but after viewing her again today at TRU...I have to make an exception. I've already named her, Summer...don't know the last name yet but Summer fits her. The next one (or two) will be Fallen Angel #1. I think she's gorgeous and since I missed out on Spooky Sooki when she was a decent price, I think she's the next best thing. After that, I'm on the fence about two others...but one of them has a smiley face...I really don't care for the smiley face dolls.
So, for now...I'm keeping Piper single because I think she'd be great with the AA BB Jeans Model guy but I'm on the fence with him because of his lack of articulation. My other option is to put her with the AA Triad Action figure that's on my list of next guys to buy. However, he might look a lil' mean for her...not sure yet. Anyway, I'm still working out the details of her occupation, etc. but I have worked out her friends and I think I'm pretty happy with her "parents." By the way, all of my main characters will have parents in their lives at some point and I'd like them to be connected to each other. This weekend, you can look for a post from me with updated profiles and the next installment of the last photo story. Pictures were taken weeks ago but it's been crazy around her so I haven't had the time to load them.
Here are the photos:
Piper Phillips on a Fashionistas Artsy/Nikki body
Father: Miles Phillips - Mother: Lea Phillips - Pipers mother is bi-racial, she is Hawaiian and Black and is Joyce Banks younger sister. This makes Brooklyn and Deja Piper's cousins.
Reese Miller and Echo Parks are Pipers best friends. Reese is the "trouble" of the group but these girls have been inseparable friends since elementary school.
Cree Larson pictured on the far right. Piper considers Cree a best friend also. The two met in art school three years ago and have a lot in common.
Piper just moved back to Los Angeles eight months ago after traveling through Sierra Leon for one year. Seven and Darren are dying to know who this beautiful girl is.
Kayla Daniels is the younger sister of Lea Phillips, Piper's mother. She's a young Aunt to Piper...so she sometimes hangs out with Piper and her girls.

So, that's it for now folks. Please excuse my constant yammering, sometimes I get carried away with blogging especially when there's a new doll involved. I hope I've given helpful information here for those who are considering purchasing this doll. If not, please feel free to ask me questions. :) Oh, the feet on the original body are a lot larger than Barbie, so the shoes don't fit. Also, the muse type body the doll comes with, the legs do not move at all, so the doll can't even sit down (if you decide to keep her on that body).
Thanks for following!
