On another page, I detailed how actress Jennifer Morrison and others support the Dressember Foundation, which advocates for human rights by fighting slavery and sex trafficking. My fundraiser page.
Jennifer donated seven of the dresses that she wore and signed back to the charity. Those dresses were put up for auction on ebay. I managed to secure one for Feodora. "The Blythe" was designed by Blythe Hill, the founder of the Dressember Foundation. It is made by Elegantees (Elegant Tee shirts) and comes in White (which I got), Black (which was also auctioned), and Poppy.

Here is a shot of Feodora holding the dress and Thank you card.
This dress was listed as a size XS (Extra Small), so I was a bit concerned that it might not fit Feodora. Not taking any chances, I took Feodora's head off before trying to put the dress on her. I also put socks on her hands and freshly powdered her arms.

I wanted a portrait of the two of us, so I took a few timed shots. Here is one of them.
Our online group's January 2018 Photo Challenge is to have our dolls "do something". I already had Feodora do most domestic things like cooking,
and washing dishes. She has been a
Model Citizen ever since coming over from Vladivostok, Russia. (In her online profile, I have her set as growing up in Voronezh.) She went
Cruising with Camp. She went on a
world tour. Once she had a
Visit to Chichén Itzá. She was in the play
"Too Much Spring". I knew this was going to be quite a challenge. Did I mention her
Adventures on the Holodeck? The girl gets around!
Feodora has beaten me at every game. Here we are playing chess.
Maybe one of these days I may get the upper hand, but so far it does not look like it is in the cards.
Feodora Verochka Tychovich is a life-sized platinum-cured silicone rubber doll. She was produced by Oleg Bratkov (a gifted sculptor) and his beautiful wife Irina (excellent makeup artist), at their workshop, Anatomical Doll in Vladivostok, Russia. Feodora has Face 3 and Body 3 of their product line. She has a fully articulated skeleton and can pose in most natural ways that a human can pose. There are 'stops' on the skeleton that prevent her from posing in unnatural ways. This also helps to prevent damage to the silicone.
Feodora is wearing the
"The Blythe" dress that was worn by Jennifer Morrison, the Shades of Brights necklace and earring gift set, the Heart of the Crusade Pin, the Scroll Cuff Watch, and the Goldtone Marquise Ring, all from
Avon. Her White Stag ballet flats are from Wal Mart. Her
Forever Young wig was given to her by Irina at Anatomical Doll.
Unfortunately, Oleg passed away in February 2017. It does appear that Irina is either unable or unwilling to continue the business. As of this writing, no one knows what has become of the molds and materials used in the construction of these dolls.
