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?

Finally.  Time to see my Felicity collection.  Sorry it took so long.  Life happened.

Here’s the group photo: Elizabeth’s riding outfit, Felicity’s riding outfit, Felicity’s Rose Garden gown, Elizabeth’s tea lesson gown, Felicity’s traveling gown, Felicity’s tea lesson gown, Elizabeth’s starter gown, Felicity’s Christmas dress, Felicity’s gala gown, Elizabeth’s holiday dress

Oops, I forgot to wake up these girls for the photo:

Marie-Grace is wearing Elizabeth’s nightgown (that I recently got on ebay for cheap) and Kanani is wearing Felicity’s nightgown (that my mommy made for me)

Here are some closeups:

Saige dressed like Felicity!

Sorry it’s been a while.  I was in Disneyland.  It’s time for Addy!

Ruthie in Addy’s Nightgown, Marisol in Sunday Best, Kit in the new Addy outfit, Nicki in the new school suit, Kailey in winter coat and hat, Caroline in Christmas dress, Elizabeth in Flower Picking dress, Felicity in Plaid Summer Dress, Samantha in Addy’s dress, Addy in her birthday pinafore, Gwen in the striped dress, and Nellie in the summer dress

Here’s more!  Kit is having trouble pulling off Addy’s new bonnet:

Marisol in Addy’s purple Sunday Best Dress:

Elizabeth and Felicity:

I think Addy is a lucky girl because she has a mother who is a dressmaker.  I doubt many escaped slaves had clothes as nice as Addy’s.  But they are gorgeous, aren’t they?

I really like Kit’s new outfits, but they seem more 50’s than 30’s to me.  But what do I know, that was decades before my existence!

I cheated a little.  Because Molly doesn’t have any new outfits, I didn’t take any new photos.  I already have a group photo with all of Molly’s outfits:

Front row: Molly’s skating outfit, Emily’s Christmas dress, Emily’s bikini, Molly’s roller skating outfit, Molly’s birthday dress, Emily’s recital dress, Molly’s meet outfit, Emily’s meet outfit, Molly’s plaid skirt set, school jumper (homemade by my mommy), polka dot dress, Halloween costume, floral pajamas, Emily’s pajamas.

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!
