    I had just started in the hobby and was looking for a doll that actually looked Asian. This was the first one I saw, and I also thought she was adorable.

    The body (child's body) is a bit clunky and awkward.

  • Name story:
    Like most of my mini-size dolls, Gilberte is named after a character in Marcel Proust's work In Search of Lost Time.
    Offsite roleplay:
    This doll's character is not available for offsite roleplay.
    I don't really create characters for my dolls but I first discovered Dandelion in an article in the January 2009 issue of Doll Reader magazine from which I learned that the sculpt was based on an art doll representing a 10-year-old girl who is, according to Bimong, "a poor Asian girl who lives in the ghetto. She has lost her mother and is waiting for her father who is out working."
