Eden Wears It Better

No disrespect to the fine talents of Mr. Best and Mattel but…I think Eden from Integrity Toys wears this one better.

And yes people…this silkstone’s shoes will fit the Nu.Face model here….barely but it works.  I am still trying to figure out if I like the swirl curl bang thing on her forehead.  Winking smile

Classic Cocktail Dress Arrives

My trusted dealer Barb of Windy City Dolls sent one of these lovelies out as soon as she received them.  She isn’t even up on the BC website yet.  It looks like she will retail for $100.00

So what am I thinking??  Hmmmm.  Well, I like the gown and the little pearl embellishments are delightful.  Her face is sweet and I like the silvery lilac eye shadow.  The lashes seem a bit spikey to me but not a huge problem.  I love the little pearl drop earrings.  The hair on mine was a bit of a fixer upper.   The curls on top are soft so when you remove the hairnet, you will get some flyaway hair.  Not super crisp curls but not a deal breaker in my opinion.

The dress is a strapless gown with a little crop top overlay that snaps in the back.  She comes with a white slip underneath too.  Considering the quality of some of the other outfits we have seen from BFMC lately, this one is pretty good.  I mean we get earrings, pantyhose, a slip and a fairly well constructed dress.  It’s up to you as collectors to decide if that is worth the price.  I have to be honest and say, I am not a fan of this new body.  The flexibility ( or lack thereof) in the wrist joint is a major problem.  I do, however, love the elegant pose of the hand.  I just wish it bent so I could comfortably put her hand on her waist.  My other issue with this doll are the very flimsy shoes.  The heal is very pliable so it bends under the weight of the doll when she is on her stand.©2016 Inside The Fashion doll Studio Classic Cocktail Dress Arrives

Is Miss Classic Cocktail Dress a keeper at ITFDS?  Time will tell.  I am anxious to see how she redresses then I will make my final decision.
