We made it!  Here is the last of my historical collection, Kaya.  Kaya is a Nez Perce Girl.  Nez Perce lived in areas of what is now Washington, Oregon, and Idaho.  She has just a few outfits and a teepee:

I was hoping that Kaya would get more of a makeover for BeForever.  Would it kill American Girl to give her more outfits?

Let’s look back at everything:

I just want to shout out that I love the historical characters!  These oufits and accessories are what made me fall in love with American Girl the moment I got my first catalog in the 90s.  My favorite is Molly because she was my first.  Who’s your favorite?

Josefina is from New Mexico.  New Mexico in 1824, which was still part of Mexico.  I think her clothing is pretty awesome.  I heard a rumor that she’s getting new outfits next spring, along with a Beforever journey book.

I can never remember if this dress is called the feast dress or the fiesta dress.  Either way, here’s Josefina and her oven:

And let’s see what other Molly outfit photos I have lying around.  Here’s last week’s photo of Molly and Emily in Saige’s hot air balloon.  Emily is wearing the Route 66 outfit and Molly is wearing the Roller Skating outfit:

A lousy picture of Kit, but a pretty good picture of Molly’s Dude Ranch outfit!

Hello!

I’ve been admiring my girls all week in their new Beforever outfits, and I’ve been wondering how they fit in with the rest of each girl’s collection.  So I decided to dig out all of my outfits from the historical collection, and photograph them all.  This might take a while.  I decided to start with Julie and work back in time.  Let’s start with the group photo:

Oh man, I forgot about this outfit in the group photo because I’m storing it in the box with the disco ball. Oh well. No retakes!

Josefina would like to show off her new oven and her pretty dress.  My mommy made her dress using the pattern for Josefina’s Christmas Dress.  Caroline likes to borrow it–both girls adore the high waistline and small puffy sleeves.
