TALE OF TWO BEARS:
They're actually brooches. My partner and I used to wear the two identical bears pictured with Neve above every Christmas time back when we worked together. At present they reside on our Christmas tree as they have done for a couple of years.
Neve Dynamite Girl of the Chill Factor collection by Integrity Toys
She retains her original name, Neve
Neve made her entrance in the Dynamite Girls family through the Chill Factor collection earlier in the fall. These dolls were only limited to 300 so I was extremely lucky to get one, care of my partner in crime. She is supposedly of mixed ethnic heritage and shares the same face mold as the new Reese. Because I loved the new Reese face sculpt so much I was more than happy to have Neve join my collection. The only thing I didn't like about her was her ponytail hairstyle. But as you can see, I've remedied that. Her wavy hair now flows naturally with very minimal restyling on my part.
To those of you who like snow, here's a shot of Neve outside with Toronto's first snowfall that somewhat stayed on the ground!
