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.
Integrity Toys announces their second and final Fashion Royalty 12 inch WClub exclusive for 2012. There is still one more 16 inch exclusive doll to unveil but this is the final 12 inch Fashion Royalty offering for the year. If you are member of the 2012 WClub, you have the option to purchase one of these beauties.

Okay….so typically I adhere to the philosophy that the total is the sum of it’s parts. In the case of this doll…I think it’s worth thinking about the individual parts instead of the sum it is showing here. Am I justifying the purchase of this doll??? Most likely…. but stay with me here:
1) Purple fur? Not feeling it with this outfit unless she is planning a late night walking kind of profession but partner that fur with a black evening dress and then we might have something.
2) Green Jacket with rose colored skirt and purple belt….not feeling that either. However, put that jacket with another dress or skirt and we will have a winner. Same thing with the skirt. Purple belt?…will need to keep thinking on that.
3) Boots and purse….not feeling those with this outfit but on their own with something else…oh yeah.
4) The hat. Not feeling it with this outfit but can always use another black hat.
5) Fishnets: Works with the edgy outfit concept so another keeper item.
6) The Doll. A redheaded Vanessa 3.0 Don’t really need to justify anything else…I’m buying.
7) Lace overlay top has potential as well. That is actually something that works with that skirt in my opinion.
