I'm not a very pink person, to tell the truth it is a colour that is growing on me very very slowly... I actually hated it as a teenager. But, when I was asked to make this doll, especifically a doll, not cat, nor a fish not even a teddy bear, all I could think of was the pink obsession of the person who asked me for it. And with pink in mind, all I could think of was my sister as a little girl dressing up for her ballet classes (hence the skininess of the character!).
