Barbie for big girls.

Empress of Emeralds Elise

Had an idea for a photo shoot when I saw Jon Copeland dress one of his beatiful creations in this gorgeous gown.  I think the Royal Jewel Collection by Mattel resulted in some of the most amazing jewelry for fashion dolls.  I only have Empress of Emeralds but if this is any indication of the quality of jewels in the other dolls of that series….I think I will be searching for them.

Model:  Dark Swan Elise Jolie FR2

Gown and Jewelry:  Empress of Emeralds Barbie

Bracelet:  Fashion Royalty

    Good job! While I haven’t seen in the plastic the new Hope Diamond Barbie, I am thinking the jewels and dress from that doll might be worth getting. It looks great in the promos.
