I’ve been playing around the the American Girl website with their new Create Your Own feature. I’ve created quite a few dolls, but never any outfits. I decided to make some of those today and showcase them here on my late Thursday post. (Sorry ’bout that!)
First off on the runway, we have this gorgeous glowing dress with a fashionable bow around the middle and sparkling sequins to light up the night.
Next up is a more sporty style. The simple turquoise uniform is brought together with a feminine sparkly silver-and-purple headband to keep your lovely locks back while you’re on the field.
If you’re looking for a fun playtime outfit that will still bring out your style, try this one on for size. The comfy star-spangled jeggings are a stylish wear and match the bright blue stars on the tee shirt. The look is completed with a beautiful purple scarf.
If you’re looking to wear your heart on your sleeve – well, almost on your sleeve – this puppy is yours. All Frenchie fans will go nuts for this sweet one – and best of all, he’s machine washable, so when he goes to roll around in some dirt, you can stick him right in.
And this one is just a backpack I designed. There were rhinestones at the bottom, but the AG website wouldn’t show them. I’ve seen lots of “Oh, Snap!” play-on-words, and this one just popped right into my head.
I hope you enjoyed those! Go to the AG Create Your Own section of their website to make your own dolls and styles. Have a great weekend! I hope school is going good for y’all.

Last week, I asked you guys to name this doll right here:
Unlike my last Name That Doll contest, this doll is a Create Your Own instead of a TrulyMe. Also, instead of voting on pre-selected options, you got to come up with your own names.
Here’s the winner!
It’s Avaroo2003, with Melody! Congrats!
The second-place winner is Rebcake, with Lexie!
And our third-place winner is Dianne, with Jillian!
Thanks to everyone for their amazing name suggestions! Now, I have a question for you about future Name That Doll contests. Should I use Create Your Own dolls, or original TrulyMe’s?

Hi! My last post was about Create Your Own dolls, American Girl’s new type of doll. They’re a lot like TrulyMe dolls, except you can customize the doll exactly the way you want her, from eye color to hair color to skin tone and even face shape!
Create Your Own were released yesterday and I went online to the American Girl doll website and created my own doll. This is what she looks like:
Isn’t she cute? I’m not actually going to be getting her, considering I already have a doll (Crystal) who looks almost exactly like me already, and I cannot justify the $200 price of buying a Create Your Own. But I l-o-v-e the idea!!! 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂
Are any of you guys going to be getting Create Your Own dolls?
I decided that this doll needs a name – and what better way to do that than a Name That Doll contest?
This time, you guys get to come up with your own names instead of voting. Post your name ideas in the description, and on August 16th I’ll pick the name I like best. Winner gets bragging rights! So what are you still waiting for? I want ideas!!!

Okay, well I don’t really know if this is breaking news, but I just found out the COOLEST THING EVER when I was on the AG website.
Coming soon, YOU can create your own, completely personalized doll! I mean completely customized! Take a look:
They’re called Create Your Own dolls. I love this idea so much!!! In addition to creating your own doll, you can also make your own outfit for the doll, plus you get a Create Your Own tee-shirt, personalized keepsake doll box, and a 6-month subscription to the AG magazine!
Plus, it ships free. Probably not including Alaska and Hawaii.
I have a theory about why American Girl is doing this. I watched a YouTube video where a girl called AG and asked what they thought about customizing AG dolls (not like the Create Your Owns, but buying wigs and changing their eyes and stuff), and they said the dolls aren’t meant to be customized. That’s probably also the reason the dolls come with zip ties, not strings, so you can’t take their heads off to customize. Now they’re offering dolls you can make to look just like you, and charging nearly a hundred dollars more than the regular TrulyMe dolls.
Anyway, I love these dolls so much! Now girls who don’t have a TrulyMe who looks just like them can finally have their own! Way to go, American Girl!!!!
What do YOU guys think of Create Your Own dolls? Are you going to get one? Tell me in the comments below!
