The image shows the 18-inch BFC Ink Kaitlin doll wearing handmade shorts with an elastic waistband and a lace-trimmed (and rick rack trimmed) short-sleeved shirt made of the same springtime yellow fabric as the shorts. She wears glittery pink high-top sneakers with the whole ensemble and her hair is pulled up in a pony tail. She's looking closely at a poster on the wall of the diorama in which she stands. The poster advertisement says "Galway Kinnel" and is a retro-style poster for a poetry reading at the University of Arizona Poetry Center. The wording slightly resembles piano keys but instead of white ivory, the lines of the keys are made of oak-like wood.
