Emma Jean's "Dramatic Entrance" Outfit

Described as a "simple black knit dress beneath a stunning rich and creamy coat trimmed in faux fur and a velvety collar," this is the one and only item from the Deja Vu line that I have ordered. I don't own any Deja Vu dolls but I fell in love with the look of this ensemble and rightly assumed that the roomy coat would fit any of my 16" dolls.

Modeling here is Tonner's Cami. The dress, which I don't show, is slightly on the tight side as I couldn't snap all the snaps. I did not put on the black hosiery and the shoes, although they fit, have a more of an arch than Cami's feet have.

 The large collar can be turned up.
On Cami, the hat is too large so a straight pin was used to take up the slack. If I had wanted to put the hat all the way down to her eyebrows, it might have been the correct diameter.


The ensemble really should have come with earrings. It wouldn't have been a big deal to make matching jet bead studs.

I like the construction of the coat but this very visible spot needs attention. Where is the other half of the triangle?

The promotional photo below doesn't look like my coat. I wonder if they are all this way. I need another triangle to replace the half that's there...or something.
Instead of placing the triangles this way, the appliques should have been shifted around so no triangle had to be halved. That's a design flaw. Perhaps the factory made the decision.


Here is what the shoes look like on Cami.

In spite of everything, I like the outfit and will be putting it on one of my BJDs.

  1. Terri - Based on my outfit and the one currently on ebay, it looks like the half-triangle on your outfit might have shifted. I agree on the earrings. When I deboxed it I kept looking thinking surely they were in there somewhere! I was able to get the dress to completely button on Gene, but it really was a stretch.

    1. Perhaps I should contact customer service for a replacement. They are very good about that. Thanks for the info. I was hunting for photos from other collectors but could find none.

  2. The Deja Vu clothing has been very impressive, and I own many of the outfits. They are quite luxurious with great details. I buy them without the dolls now, as I do have one of each character and don't really feel the need for more of the dolls. The new outfits haven't made it here yet, but they should soon.

    If that mis-matched diamond isn't a one-off, it would be disappointing. It is at least worth contacting Tonner. I've found their customer service to be quite responsive.
