Daily Dose of Vanessa: Obsidian Society

Obsidian Society was an edition of 1200 (!) and retailed for $99.99. The good old days.

What a season it was for Fashion Royalty dolls!  Only one year into the new tall body and the demand was still skyrocketing. 

This 2006 line was called "Modern Pompadour" and included 5 Premium dolls: Veronique "Lights, Cameras, Royal" in two hair colors, Adele, this Vanessa and Natalia. (The blonde version of LCR was the centerpiece at that year's convention.) 

The dolls were dressed beautifully in impeccably tailored fashions with wonderful accessories and gorgeous hair styles.





I took her hair out of it's wrap and I loved her even more.

  1. She's gorgeous - and your photos are great! I love that photography prop in the first picture. Not sure I like the nude lips though.

  2. I didn't like the mouth of Vanessa at this time, it was not well painted but the rest, the hair, the style, the outfits and accessories were so great and from a wonderful quality... The great Old days as you said ...No comment ;-)

    1. Did you keep all your FR?

    2. FR were my first dolls, but I sold all of them a while ago. I didn't like the taller bodies, & they just seem kind of old to me. My tastes run to smaller dolls with a touch of anime like Momoko, Misaki, & Pure Neemo.

    3. I remember you loved the smaller ones. I haven't been on a doll board that is mainly smaller dolls in a long time. I still love my older FR but I've been in a different doll world for a while.
