NuFantasy Beauty and the Beast

Integrity Toys' incarnation of this famous fairy tale casts Beauty as the male doll and Beast as the female.
Beauty is an edgy, great-looking doll with a well-made, detailed fashion. His long coat is made from a fabric that feels like a high quality fine wool. Under his vest is a striped shirt. His pants are belted.
I could not get his boots on over his socks, even with fully unlacing them. I tried it without socks and succeeded with one but didn't try the other as I didn't want to damage them by pulling too hard. I just substituted a different pair of Homme ankle boots which work very well with the outfit.


He will definitely be staying.

On the other hand, the Beast was disappointing in two ways. Her hair is a frizzy mess. My doll's hair is in better shape than most!

Some people have taken to defending this mess as indicative of how a Beast's hair should be. Seriously? This result is from untrained doll hair stylists and not from design intentions.
I thought I'd love the boots but, once again, we've returned to getting shoes with heels that are too high for the rest of the sole. In order to stand with straight legs, the doll has to be placed on her heels with the front of the shoe not touching the base. Unacceptable.
She's been voted off the island after being here for a whole 48 hours.


I am going to keep her earrings (which are cool) and her faux fur vest which could be useful with other fashions.



BTW I put her next to Devil Damon (Dynamite Boy) and they make a good couple for displaying...if you have both and are keeping them.

  2. Wow - Saying the hairstyle is indicative of a Beasts hair - and that it was intentional ? The denial in some people is hilarious. It reminds me of my pomeranian's hair when I forget to comb it through for a few days. Definitely a candidate for a fabric softener and a boil perm treatment.

    Im still going to keep her when she gets here though - she really looks like she came out of the Bold and the Beautiful to me. I hear that opening number whenever I see pictures of her lol.

    Beauty looks flawless. Im so glad I got to my dealer in time !
