My Favorite Doll Candi 2003, Page 34



This is page 34 of the Fashion Doll Showcase for 2003 My Favorite Doll catalog. There were two pages of Integrity dolls in this issue. The Candi dolls were on page 34; the Fashion Royalty dolls were on page 35.

The first three Candi dolls belonged to the wave Fashion Forward Collection 2003:

1. Sublime Elegance (Executive Decision)

2. More is More

3. Ultra Chic

The fourth Candi belonged to the wave Fashion Forward Collection 2002 Subtle Elegance. Please note that this page of the catalog also shows a My Favorite Doll dealer exclusive Embassy Ball Malika doll and the three Icon dolls - a Collector series of the Tariq and Janay playline dolls. (Note: Jade from the playline series becomes "Sooki" for this collector set.)

(Note 2: one series mentioned on this catalog page, the Polar Lights Collection, was never created for the market.)

Thanks to Marg of MyFavoriteDoll for allowing this page to be copied and posted here.

Thanks for the additional Candi info from the MFD catalogue.

I love the Icons and Sublime Elegance's (Executive Decision) hair!

You're welcome, DBG! I love Sublime Elegance Candi's hair, too. It's like a cornucopia of curls ;-D While she is not described as a "Mixis" or multi-ethnic doll per se, she has that vibe - IMO.

The Icons shown here are the first set. There was another Janay who followed this one - long, straight hair the second one had, but she didn't touch the first for elegance and drama. Shrug.

I'd almost forgotten what gorgeous dolls these were. I'll never forget Sublime's hair! Thanks for the pics - beautiful to look at.

Sublime Elegance has incredible hair! I love the expression on her face, too.

Hi Robin and Vanessa! Thanks for looking. I'm waiting to find out if I can upload my first photos into my Webshots folders. And yes, the Candi dolls were stunningly gorgeous. Especially Sublime ... but you didn't hear that from me, okay?

Hi D7ana!!

I've Sublime Elegance. She looks an old doll now, no articulated, old body and many time I fell up of her. But, she really has a gorgeous face and hair, so.... she still stays home :)

Hi Silviah! I agree with you. Sublime Elegance is one of the most striking dolls that I own. I do not want to alter her in any way ;-)
