Top Ten DAFs of 2009: Bewitching Hour Luchia at 2

Manufacturer: Integrity
Series: Fashion Royalty, W Club 2008
Character Name: Bewitching Hour Luchia
Box Year, if Noted: 2008

Why is Luchia on the Top Ten list?

1. She is gorgeous.

2. She has attitude.

3. She reminds me of a blond Emma Peel.

4. She has better articulation than I am accustomed to (think basic Barbies).

When I showed a relative a photo of Bewitching Hour Luchia, I was told that I would not buy that doll because that doll was the sort that men buy. Cocked my head to the side and looked at the doll again. Bouffant blond hair, [her] flesh-colored mini dress, black slatted knee high boots ... I could almost understand why my relative had that thought. In some circles, Luchia might look like a high priced um call girl. Hmmm .... Well. Okay, she still reminds me of Emma Peel of the Avengers, only Luchia's back story came from an American Anglophile. She should be in action movies where she should know umpteen martial arts AND fencing and spy stuff.

Why is Luchia second on the Top Ten list?

The doll that placed first has two advantages over Luchia.

She looks like a Bond Girl, doesn't she?

She could be a Bond Girl, too, now that I think on it. Emma Peel is cooler than the Bond Girls, IMO, but yeah, Bond Girl ;-D

I need to stop reading this blog. Too much dolly temptation!

Kim, I'm working on a post about the downside of having too many dolls and action figures. Hankie, please? Yes, the stress overwhelms me at times. Sigh. Cut.

Really looking forward to reading why a Dynamite Girl beat a Fashion Royalty to be your top DAF!

Niel Camhalla said...

Same as Therese. I wonder what those reasons are.

Alison said...

Oooh--she's lovely. (I have her, too.)

D7ana said...

Yes, she is, Allison.

I'm having a hard time finding something worthy enough to be worn by her, LOL.
