Back in August I was able to show you stock photos of the newest member of the Carpatina slim body 18″ doll line, a Celtic Princess named Rowena. I was so excited to see her – especially since we had recently seen the movie BRAVE. All of the early photos of her were gorgeous but like so many of the doll photos I see on company websites, they rarely do the doll justice. When I actually got Rowena and saw her up close and personal, I was stunned by her beauty! While I have shown you a few photos of her in the past few weeks, she has not been the star of a post yet, so here you go.
Rowena has the most gorgeous curly auburn hair and blue eyes. She does not have freckles. She comes dressed in a gorgeous deep green brocade medieval style gown that is fully lined in white fabric and snaps up the back. It has gold ribbon trim that is a celtic knot pattern and a jewel on her belt. This gown is definitely thicker and a step up from the other Celtic Princess gown that Carpatina makes. She also arrives wearing gold flats.

A side view shows off Rowena’s GORGEOUS curls. These curls are not for the doll lover who wants to style their doll’s hair frequently. These are going to take some care to keep them looking beautiful. The Kanekolan hair itself is extremely high quality but the curls can not be brushed out frequently or they will go away.
Rowena’s best friend Erin, another Carpatina slim body doll, is joining her in the woods today for a relaxing bit of girl chat. Erin is wearing the Butterfly Meadow gown that is for the 18″ soft body dolls like American Girl so it is a big big on her.
Rowena is just so pretty!! Her facial features are delicate but not too childish. She really is the perfect Celtic Princess!!
Carpatina makes very high quality dolls (18″ slim body) and doll clothes (both slim body and soft body) from Medieval gowns and other historical period pieces to modern day outfits. You can purchase Rowena from the Carpatina website now for $89 (she is regularly $98).
What do you think? Isn’t she just so pretty?
