She was delivered today. There were no surprises. She looks exactly like the promo. The outfit is a collection of ideas that do not relate to eachother - overdone and undisciplined. There are so many styles and doodads piled on that the effect is comical. So I made it even funnier. The fur collar makes Eugie look like she has no neck. It would be nice on a sweater or a coat but not on this strapless mini-dress.
On the positive side, the shoes are stunning. Make sure you use a needle nose pliers to open the elastic loop prior to putting the shoes on in order to avoid over stretching and possibly breaking it. In this case, patience pays off and the shoes fit properly and stay on. I will probably remove the feathers as that is another useless item.
Trick sports a beautifully blended color saran hair which is pulled back into a low pony tail which is crimped. Is there anything the designers said 'no' to? I hope her head is fully rooted as I believe she will look gorgeous with her hair down.
Once the extra "fashion' accessories are removed, she begins to emerge. She is stunning. Her dress is chic and young. The beaded lace stockings are gorgeous. Instead of the weird hat, I would have enjoyed a nice clutch in the same fabric.
Eugenia is a LE 600. Retail price is $139.00.
This season's Foundation Collection is marred by a disconnect between fashion and style. The two separate fashions, which have not yet arrived, continue this strange mix of shapes . The two images below are the property of Integrity Toys.
One hopes that the designer(s) can rein in their tendencies to put everything on one doll and call it edgy. Let's go for class once again.
This link: http://woodsky.free.fr/LBX/listeFR.html, if you haven't discovered it yet, will provide you with a wonderful source of current and past Jason Wu Dolls. You can browse back through the years to see how the dolls and fashions have changed. I use it all the time! You can drool over "Toast of Paris" and "Evening Chill" Raven Veronique. Even if you have the dolls, it's fun to see the original promotional images again.
Besides Fashion Royalty dolls, there are databases for Hollywood Royalty, Valia, Monogram, Model Behavior/Nu.Fantasy/Nu-Face, Misaki, Monsieur Z, Dynamite Girls, Poppy Parker, Brides of Dracula & Dark Hunters.
