loving the dress...wicked;-)P
Hi, Asrul "iLham" Sany! Actually, it is a blouse and a skirt, separate pieces. But oh so wonderfully ... wicked LOLThanks!
I had never heard of Disco Wanda before. She looks great. I love it when Barbie clones aren't actually clones at all.
Thanks, MissSpottyJane! I love the "clones" who aren't really clones but shiny new personalities.
Go Wanda! Go Wanda! With your bad self! dbg
I think I vaguely remember a doll like Disco Wanda and I do remember the Marla Gibbs doll shown on Black Doll Collecting's post. If memory serves me correctly, my mother didn't want to get me an African American doll that was a maid, so she wouldn't entertain even a discussion about the Marla Gibbs doll. At the time, I thought it was a nice doll. Thanks for the pic and info on Disco Wanda. She looks like a great piece of history. I find her open mouth to be a little scary by contemporary standards, but it seems like she is a breakthrough fashion doll because she is unique and she captures the feeling of a certain time in history.
DBG, Wanda's hands are raised to give you a high five, LOL. Thanks for the reminder about her via your post.Kim, you are welcome. I'm always glad to share doll chat :-)Wanda has not one, but BOTH rows of teeth showing so that's an awesome smile ha, ha! Probably the smaller Wanda the Career Girl would garner more props as a historical figure, but I prefer Disco Wanda because she seems more fun. And what a great display of teeth she has LOL.
Disco Wanda looks like a fun character! And I like the backdrop. Is that from the box she came in with?
Hi, Niel! No, Wanda had a boring box; the backdrop shown was borrowed from Flavas Choice Awards Tre. He had the neat backdrop.But Wanda has the megawatt smile :-D
