Funny Face: Think Pink

Like all Integrity Toy's premium dolls, Think Pink arrived nicely packaged and presented in the box. All the Funny Face boxes are pink inside with pink stands.
Think Pink Mini Gift Set
Description from the W Club posting:
In "Think Pink", lead character Maggie Prescott, Fashion Editor extraordinaire, is out to lay new fashion ground for her ever demanding readers and fashion lovers all over the world. As she starts exploring fashion trends to create a bold new look for the next issue of her fashion magazine, she and her "oh so fashionable" assistants break into this most visually stunning musical number... Totally convincing us to THINK PINK! The Think Pink dressed doll mini-gift set represents one of Maggie's fashionably pink clad assistants!

"Think Pink" is a 12" fully articulated vinyl doll with rooted hair and hand-applied eyelashes featuring the FR: Monogram body (with Victoire Roux legs) and the Imogen head sculpt standing in for one of the dancers in the "Think Pink" musical number. The mini-gift set includes two complete looks from the "Think Pink" musical number in FUNNY FACE. The first look in the set is composed of a two-piece bright pink business suit with a white pill-box hat, short gloves and matching shoes, while the second show-stopping look is composed of a pink satin two-piece gown with a transformable pink fur peplum that turns into a cape, just like the one in the movie! Pink opera length gloves, bright pink satin shoes and a jewelry set complete this look. It also includes an alternate set of hands, a doll stand and a certificate of authenticity. For adult collectors 14 years and up.
The promotional photos, posted elsewhere on this blog, accurately represent the contents of the set.
This doll reminds me so much of the Lana Turner Hollywood Royalty dolls from a few years ago.
The necklace is composed of clear crystal beads. Her earrings are rhinestone studs which is a little odd as they usually relate to the other jewelry the doll is provided with. The faux fur is very soft and pretty. I couldn't get it to look quite like IT's cape photo but I like it anyway.
The fabrics are lovely and the fashion is constructed nicely although there is a fit issue with the day dress. The bodice is too large and there's a great deal of excess fabric. In addition, the thickness of the fabric plus the seam allowances and lining, create a hill on her shoulders.
I tried the dress on a regular Fashion Royalty body, below, and although the bust took up some of the slack, it was still too large.
When the jacket is put on the doll, the shoulder line slopes downward and makes most of her neck disappear.
I tried very briefly to put her long gloves on and met with resistance. I do not have patience for gloves like that so her hands and forearms remain bare. She also comes with wrist length leatherette gloves. They met with the same fate as the long ones.
Cute shoes.
 
Happily for me, she does not have the Poppy Parker leg. I will be harvesting her body for one of my Jo Stockton figures.

  1. That's a shame the suit isn't as fitted as it looked. Love those shoes and the hat, though
