Anyway, a few months ago I finally found a Wee Imp on eBay for a price I was willing to pay. I didn't have any of the Wee Imp outfits that are shown on page 303 of The Collector's Encyclopedia of Vogue Dolls-Second Edition, but I dressed her in a Christmas Elf outfit that I already had and thought suited her personality. Here she is on the shelf with some friends. She's in the first row on the right.
Wee Imp was different from other Vogue Ginny dolls of that time. She came with bright orange hair that was kind of chopped, freckles, and green eyes. She was sold undressed or dressed in one of the four special Wee Imp outfits. She was only made in 1960, so collectors consider her a little rare.
I've been watching for a while for a Wee Imp outfit at the right price. I finally saw one on eBay. It had a starting bid of $9.99 with free shipping. However, the dress was stained and I wasn't sure if it was rust or what on the front. Finally, I decided to take a chance and I bid. No one else bid and I got the dress for $9.99. This is the picture of the dress from eBay.
Perk. This was the end result. It's almost like new.
