Three remaining club exclusives are

Black and White collection

BFC Holiday Hostess New years

Tailored Tuxedo Ken

Squeeeeeealllll!  I wonder if this is a Silkstone Ken??!!  No clarification on this yet.

And gift with purchase of membership is another mannequin but this one is black.  The verbiage on the Barbie Collector website stipulates the dress form won’t start shipping until 7/12.  Wellll….that’s a bit of a wait.  They will serve no noir dress form until its time apparently.  Ah well, it will give all of us diorama enthusiasts a chance to build that perfect shop window scene to showcase this baby.

    Oh, I just love Boater, fabulous design, and that is the one hat missing in my collection.
    I also hope that is Silkstone Ken. I marvel at how amazing this year`s line up for Silkstone is. Can`t wait to get them.

    • Don’t you just love that hat?!! It looks like the moderators on the BFC are confirming that it is indeed a BFMC Ken so Silkstone!! I believe this Ken will be much like the Charity Buzz Ken I blogged about before Christmas.

    The holiday hostess sketch was what sealed it for me! I have a feeling Ken will be tempting too.

    Ah, so that means five out of the six new Silkstone dolls slated for 2013 have now been revealed. Who will number six be? Personally, I would love to see the girl from his “Blue Bows” illustration.

  7. I love the new Boater Ensemble silkstone! She is a must have. I didn’t join last year because nothing really interested me, but I hope to join when it opens to new members. I’ve really been enjoying reading your blog and catching up on the news. Your photos and displays are just beautiful!

  8. The boater outfit is gorgeous, I’d love to have it for my dolls.
