This year, Mattel and Mr. Greening serve up another helping of gorgeous gothic splendor with Haunted Beauty Vampire™ Barbie® Doll.  She looks to be all decked out in a very close representation of an Alexander McQueen cloak over a deliciously gothic gown.  If I were into vampire or gothic design dolls, I would be all over this one.  While I may not be in the market to purchase this one, I can certainly admire the artistry of her design.  Another win for you Mr. Greening.

Haunted Beauty Ghost™ Barbie® Doll

I may not be in the market for this one but it does not stop me from admiring her.  Many, many collectors have been greatly anticipating this beauty and the pictures will show you why.  Here is the write up from Mattel on this ghost….

“An ancient mansion sits beneath ink black skies. Midnight winds whisper through deserted rooms. Softly, the sound of clanging chains and supernatural murmurs rises and grows. From the darkness, an apparition appears, sheer and barely visible. Frightfully beautiful, she lives between this earthly life and an unknown world beyond. You are indeed fortunate that this sublime spirit has revealed herself to you!

Haunted Beauty Ghost™ Barbie® wears an ethereal, off-white gown featuring fitted bodice, bell sleeves, and full skirt with tattered hem. A silvery earthly chain wraps around her body. Her long, pale platinum hair and dramatic face paint take her far beyond the paranormal to extraordinary!”  From Barbiecollector.com

Oh my!  She was designed by Mr. Bill Greening and is available only from Barbiecollector.com….just in time for Halloween too.  Cool!  Just click on her picture if you want to go to Barbiecollector.com to take a look at her.

If interest on the doll boards is a good gauge ( and I believe it is Smile), then this is another one that may sell out sooner rather than later.  Just an FYI.
