  I considered doing a broken china doll outifit.  I don't know if I will or not now, but the idea was to get a mask to paint all the fine cracks on her face, wear a pretty "doll" dress or outfit, and if I decided to go all out, somehow attach an arm to the dress, which I could paint and cut fingers off of, and cut holes in to make it more 3d.  You could probably find some makeup to aid with making marks on other exposed parts of your body as well.

  I know you didn't want to be broken, but I thought I would put those ideas out there.

also along the lines of makeup...you should keep your face looking as powdery as possible.  it will keep you from looking real, heh.  and whoever said the banana curls thing is dead on, every porcelain doll I've ever seen had pulled back or loose banana curls.

Try doing your hair with rag curls. My grandama used to do them on my cousin and I, and it was very doll-like if you don't comb them (I have very straight fine hair). Think Nellie Olson....

Oh, stumbled on this thread.
I had to add:
for good doll look, go all out, not just powder, white make up too.
Think Geisha as far as that goes, I know you odn't want to do EGL, but Porcelain dolls are VERY white.

I am doing a broken porceline doll for halloween as well.

I have been loved too much so i am missing my dress just a shift and bloomers.

My hanging price tag will have the words USED and a couple prices where I have been marked down.

I'm pale-ish with dark hair too ( one time when my curly hair isnt too annoying) and doing bannana curls with big velveteen bows

My make up- I'm using some cheap dollar tree make up 2-3 shades too light for me and lots of Ivory pressed powder, round blush spots and a tiny rosebud mouth and fake eyelashes. ( I do have to wear my lasses cause Im nearly blind with out them ) My artist friend is taking some ultra fine liquid eyeliner and drawing cracks on my face and I'm adding a large bandaid to my face over the cracks ( like what a little girl would do to her dolly)
and having sharpied wrist and elbow joints drawn on. striped socks that meet my bloomers and black flats.

HTH!

Creepy Note: My boyfriend is wearing work clothes and a carpenders apron filled with broken dolls and tools...hes a doll maker :-)

Also, something I've noticed about the dolls for younger girls is that they have gappy teeth. If you wanted to, you could paint just a little bit of tooth wax in between your front two teeth to make a little gap.
Just my 2 cents!
