Is it just me or does it look like Vanessa has been out partying until the wee hours of the morning?  Maybe it’s the sleepy eyed look.  Speaking for this collector, ENOUGH with the black dresses and gowns already!!  I love the cut of the gown, just wish it had been in a different color.  I know black is chic and oh so Parisienne but it wouldn’t kill us to add a little color to the wardrobe.  The jewelry and platinum hair on this one are TO DIE FOR.  The look of valium she is sporting…not my thing.  Now I realize that if they had pushed up her eyelashes a bit for the photo, she may not look so..well..sleepy.  This is actually perfect for the “after” Black Tie Ball look.  Still on the fence as to whether I am buying on this one.  Deadline for WClub members is Thursday, September 10th at Noon Eastern Time (New York Time)

I have to give credit to Integrity Toys and their responsive team here.  Originally they had advertised this beauty as a Vanessa 3.0 face mold and within 24 hours after collectors had questioned this on the WClub Forums…they issued a correction.  She is in fact a Vanessa 1.0 face mold.  Man oh man is it nice to hear and see that a company  is listening to their collector forums and issuing a correction when need be.  Sometimes a true and heartfelt “I’m sorry we were wrong” can make all the difference in the world.  Live, Learn, Grow.

    I’m with you, wanted a different color gown…I was thinking RED. Personally, I enjoy more classic looking fashions and fun accessories. With that said, I did order her. 😉

    • I agree Jennifer, red would have been fabulous with her lipstick to match that. 🙂 Still wondering if I will order or not….that jewelry is tempting me.

  2. I totally agree with your opinion. Too many of the dolls lately have the same eye screening and I dislike it. The only thing tempting me is the jewelry and shoes but then I decided against that. I’ll pass on this girl. I’m looking forward to seeing something interesting from the convention and spending the cash then. I got the last Agnes and I love everything about her, except her eyes. Same eye screening, and I hate to admit this, but it reminds me a lot of karla Homolka’s dead eyed stare. I will be very happy when they stop putting this eye shape on the dolls, keeping fingers crossed!

    • I hear you Janereeds. LOL on the Karla Homolka mention. I had to look her up…yikes!!!

    Well, I like her. Love her pale pink lips and the sapphire eyes and jewellery. The hair might have been red, but its OK. I do not mind the eyes position, she has the same screening as Fashionable Life and Blue Flame, both very popular, so I will go for her 🙂

    • Very valid points Storm. Blue Flame is one of my all time favorites. Hmmm…your comments have got me thinking now…maybe I will get this one 🙂

        Great, hope you (and I) will like her. Can’t wait to see your review and pictures 🙂
