Lolita No. 8


Lolita is the 8th doll in my series The Residents of 7717 St. Charles Ave.


Lolita acquired the house at 7717 St. Charles Ave. in a divorce settlement. She never really liked the place it was big and empty and very hard to maintain on her cocktail waitress job. She worked down in the quarter at the Absinthe House. The problem was the Lolita liked the absinthe a bit too much and it was her final demise. She is buried in Cemetery #1 at Prytania and Washington.

Lolita was a custom order for a very treasured customer. She requested that Lolita be more full figured which was something new for this series. I kinda like Lolita's larger body and may do more.

Love the fuller figure! I think it gives her more of a decadent look - yes, you should make more!

Lolita is great. I do like her fuller figure and her little tophat is perfect.
