Barbie for big girls.

Gala Gown is Here!!!

It feels like I have been waiting for this lady for a year…it has been since February when sketches started to circulate within the collector crowd of a redhead in a divine yellow ball gown.  Now she is “in da house!” and I could not be happier.  She is better than the promo shots in my opinion folks.  She feels like a return to the grand ball gowns of “In the Pink” and “Provençale”

Run don’t walk for this one! Smile

Here is a view inside the reveal.  Claudia of Pink Ponytail always wraps your purchase so you feel like you are receiving a birthday present….LOVE IT and her. (

A word of caution when deboxing this lady….the hairstyle is set but moves easily ( doesn’t have hard caked on gel with this one) so be very, very careful removing the hairnet.  I ended up carefully cutting the hair net off so as not to disturb the coiffure.  She came out perfectly!  And these are all taken with my quick point and shoot.  Can’t wait to get her into the studio.

  3. She is amazing, her gown is so detail, I think you should have two, one to debox and the other to keep perfect. Just sayin! (LOL)

    • LOL! You are such the enabler Brenda. I need another one so she can wear a fabulous Matisse outfit 🙂 I like the way you think…and I completely agree with you . Must go find that money tree now.

  5. I got mine from Angelic Dreamz and jsut received the email note that they have sent her. I am out of town on business until Monday, so am in high state of anticipation. Thank you VERY much for the tip about cutting away the hairnet. I do not want to mess up anything to so with this lady!
