|Nikki can't help being gorgeous.|
Meet Nikki Rhodes.
|And that's when Neth fell in love with "Benny."|
I named her Abebi Nicole Rhodes. My husband picked the name Nicole when I told him to give me a girl's name with a N sound. Rhodes came out of a book about black people in portraits before the Civil War. Abebi is a Yoruban name that means "We asked for her, and she was given to us."

|Sized up to an AG.|
|Doll joints. And stand.|
|Black looks good on everyone.|
|She wears headscarves beautifully.|
|Kanani would like to think this is her chair, but she'd be highly mistaken.|
And now, a gallery of Nikki being pretty. She's really goddamn photogenic. I also post pictures on my eljay and on Tumblr here and there.
|Anything is possible when your doll is so damn gorgeous.|
It's really hard to get one just like her. Iplehouse does open ordering once a month, where you could customize a doll pretty much like her, but BJD don't come cheap and I will probably not pay much for a doll again like I did her. Nikki is a beautiful doll that seems to just capture the light every time I photograph her, and interact with the world in a way that whispers elegance. A girl only turns thirty once, and she couldn't have been a better present.
1 JID stands for Juvenile Iplehouse Doll. BJDs have varying sizes. Most companies use their own independent sizing terms.
2 She didn't come with the bucket, staff, or apple.
3 While companies have their own terms, the terms used by collectors are based on the Volks Dollfies. MSD (Mini Super Dollfie) generally cover dolls from about 40cm to 45 cm tall.
