Brotherly love in playscale: finding diversity in fashion dolls and action figures from the 1960s to now: Barbie, Fashion Royalty, Momoko, Susie, GI Joe, Power Team, Mixis.
Pretty dolls. Don't like the outfits except for the pink lace dress.
The clothes are ugly and Trichelle looks older. BTW, it took me a minute to locate the link to the Flickr image. Is there a way for you to change the font color to make links readily visible?dbg
Hello from Spain: I had not seen before this doll. Keep in touch
Hi Barb the Evil Genius, Black Doll Enthusiast, and Marta!@Barb - I like the pink-black dress, too. @DBG - I like one of the dresses and the print pants, shrug. The red dress does look a little hootchie, lol. Trichelle does look older and darker. I LOVE her hair though. She can be a new character ;-DI'll see about changing the link's color. I think it can be done. Thanks for letting me know that.@Marta - I think that these dolls just started appearing online. Your Barbie Easter vacation photos are charming. Thanks for sharing such lovely photos with us.
I have not seen them yet and I really hope they look better than they do in the promotional photos. They look like they have huge overbites and those clothes might, MIGHT, be okay as separates, but together they are clashing like crazy.At least Trichelle's hair has more curl than earlier models and she's back to rocking the side eye. Those "teef" though.
Hi Muff! Oh the "teef" definitely gotta go. I love the big-hair look on Trichelle. And the side glance - I had not noticed that at first. Trichelle seems to wear those tight leggings often. Not my style, but I like that look on her. Maybe not with that blouse though, lol. The other lace dress looks okay, but the skirt and top for that doll do look mismatched.
I haven't seen them yet, but from the photos I almost like the way their outfits don't quite work. I'd have to see them in person, of course, but the clashing colours made me grin, so I might actually be more tempted by that!But then I may have questionable tastes! ;)
Hi jSarie! I haven't seen them yet either. Sometimes clothes that don't match in a conventional way can "work" in a quirky, offbeat way ;-)For cool clashing fashions, check out the threads worn by Anneka and Co. at Love has Fangs by Modern Wizard. If you do not mind gender and sexual matters, of course.
It looks like their teeth are painted onto their bottom lips. I do not care for that.It took me "forever" to get here. :) After trying several times and giving up, I decided to be patient because I know your blog is worth it. It took 25 seconds to pull up your main page. It took me 48 seconds to pull up this comments page. It normally takes me about 1 second for both.
Hi Roxanne! Whoa, that's bizarre? Their teeth protrude through their lips. EEeeeeewwww.Thanks for being patient with this new blog format and for saying that my blog was worth the effort - aw. I will need to readjust it again. (Groan, just when we are getting used to this format. I need to have a simpler format than I used to have with a simpler way to navigate than this template. BTW, this is a Blogger format; I am not drawing this up by myself, lol.)
I like that Trichelle is back to what she used to be. This is probably the same head from the first Roca Wear line, with teeth painted on. Don't get distracted by the teeth if you like the doll. Those teeth are just painted on, and are very easy to remove. I actually like this Grace as is. She looks really young, and I think she would make a great friend for my Tori character. I love the pink and black lace dress. I like all the clothes, but I think that's because I have such a wide range of ages from high school to college to young adults and older adults. That red dress would work for a college party. That purple shirt and leggings are perfect for teens and college aged. Mrs. Langford wants that pink and black outfit for one of her luncheons. After observing what Flickr people do with mixing and matching pieces, I'm learning to see endless possibilities. Thanks for sharing.
I think I got to see them in person! Oh and the price too! As always, I was hoping for articulation! I need a few more articalted cara bodies! So, let's see what makes it to the stores!
Hi Vanessa and Ms. Leo!@Vanessa - oh, cool. I'll just scrape off the teeth paint ;-) I love her big hair - go on, Trichelle. I love her leggings - couldn't wear them myself, but that's why we have dolls of different shapes and sizes, lol.Mrs. Langford would look great in that pin and black dress. Totally.You are welcome. Glad to have seen the notice L'ubo posted on The Doll Cafe Group on FB.@Ms. Leo - Alas, they do not look articulated. But with your Frankendolly skills, you'll make her articulated in no time. Looking forward to seeing your articulated gals.
