Dollz in Oz Event Doll is a Fashion Royalty Agnes

Some of you may know that Agnes is not my favorite character due to the fact that she sports a serious scowl all the time. I'm not a fan of misery so why should my dolls look miserable? Lately, Agnes is looking a little happier and this Agnes looks downright non-committal. Actually I think she looks beautiful. She's been named "Regal Estate" Agnes. At first I thought it said Real Estate and I can picture her as a real estate agent. The suit reminds me of that from the 2009 Agnes Optic Verve Giftset below on the right (or the 2nd down depending on your monitor.) A little too much of a coincidence perhaps?

The companion doll (an optional purchase) was a Monogram Doll called Magnetism. All I can say about this one is that the photographer did a fabulous job. The lighting and posing are excellent. The sculpt was screened with a closed mouth. The wig appears to be the 'default' low pony tail style with a side sweep of forehead covering hair. Or perhaps it is rolled under into a fancy bun. I can't tell. I like the frosted gold eyeshadow. Below on the right (or the 2nd down) is Dania Zarr in Optic Clash from the 2009 FR convention. It looks like there's a game of "Monkey See; Monkey Do" going on here. If a movie star wore any one of these gowns to a red carpet event, she'd be on the worst dressed list pretty fast.

Pink and black and mermaid gowns are so yesterday. Tonner came up with modern and classy uses of pink and black in the first two outfits below created for Antoinette. The third, created for Tyler, works with the fabric to create interest.

  1. The redhead Monogram event doll is rooted, not wigged according to an attendee.

    Everyone is still confused as to which is actually the companion vs the event doll...2 reliable sources disagree so not sure who is correct...makes it difficult if one ordered the absentee package as you don't know for sure which doll you're getting!

    I'm not digging the pink gown with the orange hair but the doll herself is drop dead gorgeous as is the Agnes!

  2. @Connie: The Agnes is the convention souvenir doll. Thanks for the information regarding the rooting of the Monogram doll. That's good to know.

  3. Thanks Terri! I'm surprised the doll in the fancier gown wouldn't be the souvenior doll but I'm sure many people are relieved that Agnes is the souvenior doll as I think she is the prettier of the two!

  4. The Monograms's gown reminds me of Marilyn Monroe's pink dress in Gentlemen Prefer Blondes.

  5. I thought the same thing too Terri about the suit being a copy of OV's! And I agree this is the "softest" looking Agnes yet, which for me is the reason I passed on her, LOL, I like my Agnes with the scowl.

  6. Am I the only one that loves this Monogram? The gown is classic couture, very YSL and elegant and much better than either the Silkstone or Dania that look like it. If I had the money I would get her instantly.
