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.
