New Girl!



I know!  I bought a doll 4 months ago.  But this girl is special.



I solemnly swear this is my last doll.


My uncle made a deal with me that if I could type at least 40 Words Per Minute, he’d give me a crisp 100 dollar bill.  Apparently, I can type 54 WPM, so I have a doll now!

You guys mostly guessed right about which doll I got.



Please Welcome Valerie Isabel Parker to the Agdollawesome family!

Dark and mysterious.


These are her glasses!  She will always wear these.  They are retired from AG, I think.  Grandma ordered them on Amazon for her, they’re the Rosy red glasses.




Valerie kind of has Kit’s given personality from AG.  She’s spunky, cheery, outgoing… And she loves photography!

I also fell in love with Valerie because she is one of AG’s gorgeous African-American Dolls.  She is probably the most unique doll I have, because of her awesome Addy face mold, and cute curls!  I’m so happy I have some diversity in my collection!


This is her husky, Lulu.



I love Valerie!

I also really wanted this doll for a photo shoot that I’ve been wanting to do for 2 years.

I’ve been wanting to do a scene from the Hunger game that involves Rue’s death.  So that’ll be interesting, I think I’ll take the pictures today!  If I don’t post it one here, then that means I wasn’t happy with how it turned out,  But hopefully it will be pretty!

What do you think of Valerie?  Do you like her with or without glasses?

  2. OH MY GOSH SAM SHE IS SOOOOO GORGEOUS!! YOU MADE A GREAT CHOICE! All the photos were stunning, and the bokeh was just to good for words! You did a great job on these pictures! Welcome, Valerie! And maybe she could be my Caroline’s pen-pal, because they have very similar personalities!

      1. Yay! I would LOVE to see a Lea doll in person, but Caroline is Valerie’s pen pal, which I will be bringing, but if you bring Lea, I’ll bring Amelia! I can’t decide either! Maybe I’ll bring Valerie and Molly. BTW, did you get my email?

      2. It’s a hard decision! I think I will bring Lea because Caroline’s hair is harder to travel with. But I brought Lea last year, so I don’t know! And I did, I replied!

      3. Ok! I am leaning towards Caroline now since I brought Lea last time… and I’m sure I wanna bring Sophie because in KOTLC she used to live in California as a human…

  3. Beautiful pictures, and a darling doll! I’m so glad you got to add her to your collection. I can’t wait to see future photo-shoots of her, though the one you have planned sounds incredibly sad…The Hunger Games (what I saw of them) were incredibly sad.
    I hope you have a lovely day!

  6. WOW those are great pics, especially the marigold ones! Valerie’s curls are super sweet. 🙂
    Just curious… why is she your last doll? (You don’t have to answer if it’s something you’d rather not talk about.)

    1. Thanks! I know, I love them! It’s not like I’m growing out of dolls, I just feel like I have enough of them. I have plenty to do what I love, which is take pictures of them and write about them, but before I got Valerie, I didn’t feel like that, but now that I have her I do! That’s how I know she’s my last doll. Thanks for asking and letting me clear that up!
