Secret Spells Kayla appeared on my wishlist soon after her release in 2003. Unfortunately even though she was just a playline doll she was never sold in Poland; her unavailability is yet another example of how often dolls are selected not to be sold in my country. The reason for that could be the “magical” aspect of the Secret Spells line of dolls – maybe Mattel, known for its political correctness, didn’t want to release a controversial (according to them) doll in a country that is viewed as a very religious one. Whatever the reasons were Kayla (or any other Secret Spells doll) couldn’t be bought here. However a few years later I spotted her among used dolls for sale in Dukkemuseum in Skuldelev. Not only was she quite cheap but also in very good condition, so I bought her with great excitement. Naturally first I decided to make her wear something much more chic; that’s how Kayla was given a dress that originally belonged to  The Bard Barbie , a doll that was released in 2004 in the Legend or Ireland series.

Oczywiście potem postanowiłam ją ubrać w coś o wiele bardziej eleganckiego – w taki sposób Kayla dostała suknię pierwotnie należącą do The Bard Barbie – lalki, która w 2004 roku została wydana w serii Legends of Ireland.

Her eyes may seem a little too distinct but I don’t mind it at all, because after all that Kayla is a playline doll and you can’t expect a subtle and classy make-up from her. You have to admit though, that when she looks at you like that she does look as if she was to cast a spell, and not just a simple one but a more complicated incantation. She’s very mysterious…

Jej oczy mogą się wydawać nieco zbyt wyraziste – ale kompletnie mi to nie przeszkadza, ponieważ ta Kayla jest mimo wszystko lalką playlinową, nie można zatem od niej oczekiwać subtelnego, eleganckiego makijażu. Trzeba jednak przyznać, że kiedy tak patrzy, wygląda jakby istotnie miała zaraz rzucić jakieś czary – i to raczej nie zwykłe zaklęcie, tylko bardziej skomplikowany urok. Jest bardzo tajemnicza…

I love her lip color, instead of typical red or pink Mattel decided to use a more delicate and unusual color.

Uwielbiam kolor jej ust – zamiast typowej czerwieni czy różu Mattel zdecydował się tutaj na coś bardziej delikatnego i nietypowego.
