“Goldie: A Spoiled Pageant Princess With A Secret”
Goldie: A Spoiled Pageant Princess With A Secret
♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ Please also note that EVERYTHING is handmade by me! A LOT of time, effort and work went into creating this doll.
I hope you love her as much as I do. ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥
Let us start with her story.
there was a spoiled, self-entitled little brat named Goldie. A beautiful self-entitled, spoiled little brat.
With her honey coloured locks and sparkling blue eyes, Goldie was easily the most beautiful child anyone had ever seen. Goldie knew this, and her mother knew this.
Now, Goldie’s mother was not exactly the nicest person there was.
Actually, she was probably the most horrible person there ever was.
Goldie was a close second in this horribleness. But this wasn’t really her fault. After all, how can a child be blamed for what a parent has taught them? So horrible, bratty and bold she is.
Now, in her efforts to exploit Goldie’s beauty for her own means, Goldie’s mother continuously enters her in beauty pageants for children. Poor Goldie has to forget about being a child and just bear through the absolute worst for these pageants. Being poked and prodded, frizzed and curled, make-up caked on and scraped off, Botox arguments, corset fittings, photoshoots and people staring at her all the time while she does silly routines in ridiculous high heeled shoes… Goldie is at the end of her rope. She hates it. Oh she hates it all!
Sitting in her luxury suite gives Goldie time to imagine. She imagines what it would be like to run away. To stop being near her horrible, torturous mother (who does many unmentionable things). And OH! How much more horrible life is now that her sister is no longer here to bear the brunt of it!
You see, Goldie had a sister. A TWIN sister; Madison. Madison has her own story to tell, but the part that Goldie played in that story was a major one. Goldie was horrid to her sister. Just horrid. But it wasn’t really, truly Goldie’s fault. The worse Goldie was to Madison, the easier Mother was on Goldie. So a vicious cycle was born. But alas, Madison had herself emancipated from Mother and now it is just Goldie.
All alone Goldie.
And the worse part? The worst of it all?
Goldie loved Madison.
She truly, dearly loved her sister. It was awful for her to be horrid to her sister, never being able to tell her how she really felt. Having to keep it buried deep inside her. But you see, despite her anguish at the pain she caused her sister -and brought up to be the self-entitled bratty child that she was- she chose the lesser of two evils; Have Mother be horrid to her, or she could be horrid to Madison… Well, she chose the easy route. And now Madison was gone and Goldie was getting it all.
But one day… She was done. Goldie had enough.
So she left.
Away she ran into the forest! Stumbling, tripping, getting oh so dirty! When finally, after hours of aimless running, she was good and lost. That was when she came upon a home, deep in those woods. Goldie, ignoring that fact that no one was home and being ever so hungry and tired as she was, immediately went inside (without knocking of course. After all, manners weren’t her forte), and felt safer than she had ever felt in her life.
… for now…
So now Goldie needs someone to keep her safe.
To teach her the real and true values of life.
To have someone teach her that it is ok to love, and be loved.
To have her happily ever after.
Some of you may know Goldie’s sister Madison–a doll I previously customized who has been adopted. May she bring her new mom much joy and happiness! If you are interested in Madison’s history and her association with Goldie, click here: MADISON
Now a little bit about the doll herself!
Goldie started off as a boring and messy little doll that had stiff rubbery limbs. I have done the following to make her perfect:
Hair: Goldie is a bit of a fuzz head, but she has beautiful, gloriously soft and hand-dyed honey-coloured mohair. Goldie’s hair is side parted at the front is is able to be styled in a multiude of different ways. Her hair is NOT meant to be brushed but can be hand styled. If you have experience in caring for mohair dolls, you can gently wash and condition her hair. Please make sure you know about mohair care before doing so. I have already washed and conditioned Goldie’s hair. Please note that mohair is prone to natural shedding.
Face: Goldie’s face has had her factory make-up removed and was then smoothly sand-matted to remove the super shine. Her mouth and philtrum have been carved, as has her nose -which has been carefully reshaped. She was then given a coat of MSC flat, a face-up (done in pageant make-up style with pink, bronze, and gold shimmer, including water coloured delicate lower lashes), and another coat of MSC flat. She also has a sweet little dimple on her left cheek–perfect for the pageant stage!
Eyelids: Goldie’s eyelids are her best feature. I removed her factory make-up then sand-matted her eyelids, applied a coat of MSC Flat, then painted her lids shimmery gold. I then liberally applied fine golden glitter and let it dry. Then I added glitter a few more times to make them perfect and to really make her lids stand out and sparkle. And VOILA! Golden glitter encrusted eyelids!! I really can’t express how ultimately sparkly they are. I am really pleased with the result.
Goldie has four sets of eyes that you can change manually by pulling the pull-string on the back of her head. The colours of her eyes are deep sky blue, aquamarine, golden glittered pale pink, and (my favourite) ocean blue antique glass button eyes rimmed with a layer of golden glitter. Goldie has also been given sleep-eyes.
Lips: Goldie’s lips are pageant pink with a slight sparkle to them, and finished in a super high gloss.
Eyelashes: Goldie’s ugly plastic eyelashes have been replaced with delicate soft, long eyelashes.
Goldie has a super tiny, super cute, fully posable body. She can twist her head from side to side. It is a Picco Neemo XS. Her body measures only 13CM! From head to toe, Goldie measures only 19.5CM! Goldie is considered a 1/12th size doll. Goldie’s hands are removable and can be replaced with compatible Picco Neemo XS flesh tone hands.
Pull-strings: Goldie’s original pull-strings have been replaced with gold cord. On the end of one pull-string dangles antique glass pearls fastened on chain link and a sparkling rhinestone pendant. The other pull-string has a shimmering golden key decorated with super sparkly rhinestones with a huge one in the center. They capture and reflect the light beautifully!
♦Please remember; When pulling Goldie’s strings to change her eye colour to grasp her HEAD ONLY and not her body. Her tiny neck is not as strong as us big humans!♦
Goldie comes with her own fully furnished and decorated luxury suite. A suite made perfect to her tastes because after all, she is spoiled. Mother has to keep her (somewhat) happy somehow. No one wants to see stress wrinkles on a pageant queen after all!
The box is hinged, latched, and embellished (see pics). Goldie’s wallpaper is cream with shining golden brocade print. The ceiling is an incredibly reflective golden paper, the floor wood (paper)! Inside is her permanently affixed furnishings: A high-boy dresser painted a pearlized hot pink. On the other side of her suite is Goldie’s very own personal fireplace. On warm summer nights, Goldie likes to place her candles in the fireplace for light, or as a beautiful decorative accent. She chooses fireplace logs in the coldest nights of winter. Her suite is also decorated with various works of art. On one side of her room hangs an assemblage of pictures from the original Goldilocks and The 3 Bears. Over the mantle hangs a glorious picture of Goldilocks, while on a side wall hangs a lithograph, also of Goldilocks.
Clothing: All of Goldie’s clothing was entirely designed and hand constructed by me. I am including a FULL WARDROBE for Goldie! She has a total of 13 items. She comes with:
– 1 gold necklace with golden heart pendant
– 1 sparkling deep blue Formal Pageant Gown decorated with golden beads and glass stars

I then hand glazed each photo with a tiny brush to add realism! Some of the photos have a matte glaze and some have a super high gloss.

I hope you will view these as part of her personality and accept them as part of creating something unique. I put a lot of love -really!- and attention into my work and strive to create things that are as perfect as possible. Creating these dollies is truly one of the most enjoyable experiences of my life.
