Caitlyn is my personalised custom doll, and I bought her in November 2003, having hummed and haa-ed for quite some time. As designed on the My Twinn website, Caitlyn could be described as follows: “A 23 inch, customised doll with a poseable body, having a T9 (Audrey mold) face, V (Dark Brown) “A” style hair (long straight with bangs), A05 (light blue) eyes, and a 01 (very fair) complexion.” I experimented with different hair colours and skin tones and it was touch and go between a black or dark brown haired one. The final picture was the end result. I must admit though, the black hair colour was a close second.
Finally I placed my order and she eventually arrived in January of 2004, possibly one of the last dolls which were actually delivered when MT went down. I only got to see the first picture of her in April of 2004, and when I arrived in the USA at the end of that month was able to see my visualisation from close up. She was a wonderous sight to behold.
