She arrived soon after I finished the fight for that Platinum Beaded Gown Barbie on BC website.
Her Majesty looks angry & cold.
her proudction number is 7300, I think it will take 9 to 12 months for her to sell out. I wish I didnt order her but waited for a sale.
her cape is made of polyester Jacquard with gold threads. the fabric is not really double-sided or Reversible, but they turned the wrong side out anyway, so you see the gold stripes instead of gold dots. her dress is made of nylon knit, the dress is not removeable. If you have these “celebration disco” dolls or “Fashionista” fashion packs, you shoule be very familar with thi kind of fabric.
her face is very pale, I was unable to take good photos of her.
this photo was taken under “auto” mode:
This one was taken under “Manual” mode:
I didnt take a photo of her shoes, but a nice fellow did, you can see a photo of her shoes here.
if you have not ordered her, perhaps you should wait for a sale, 25% discount on this doll would make your purchase more reasonable.

Club Night again! this time we celebrated legendary entertainer Cher’s 67th Birthday. Our host made a great presentation of a large collection of Cher Dolls & costumes made by Mego Corp. Unfortunately, this is the 2nd time around, I forgot to take my camera with me. So I lost my opportunities to take photos of Mego’s Cher & her wardrobes, they are all called ”vintage” now.
Below are a set of pictures of my ”Travel Doll” Cher. she is pretty cool, isn’t she?
I’ll say it again: If you have not joined a club, find one to join, online or offline, its fun to interact with people who share your hobbies.
Here is a link to the local Barbie Doll clubs that are recognized by Mattel, click on the State you are in to see if there is one near you, if not, go toFacebook or Yahoo! Groups & find one!

spending $1,300—you can take advantage of the modern 3-D Tech to have a doll made that looks eaxactly like you. $1,300 is much cheaper than some OOAK dolls on eBay, none of these eBay artists can beat 3-d tech to make the doll look as real as you are.
“human doll cloning in Japan” is not very new, an old article I read was from 2 years ago:
but all the sudden, some Web sites decide to retell the story:
more to read:
Now Mattel needs to have all the celebrity dolls made in Japan’s Clone Factory. let technicians take over the artists. oops, some people are going to lose their jobs lol
by the way, I’d never want a doll looks like me. creepy.

Queen of Constellation doll goes on sale today. http://www.barbiecollector.com/shop/doll/queen-constellations-barbie-doll-x8264
Do you like her? if you say “yes”, then, order her now. I don’t know what her production number is, I am guessing its around 3,800–4,000. she will be out very fast just like Empress of Aliens & Mermaid.
what if you have already reached your Credit Limit, and can’t afford her now? No worries, the Market for these dolls are not as big as Chicken Soup, many people dont collect them but want to sell them on eBay or other 2ndary markets, when too many go on eBay, I guarantee you that you will find one at lower price on eBay . you just have to know how to do your search and be very patient.
I have seen brand new NRFB Empress of Aliens & Goddess of Galaxy ended up on eBay under $100 with free shipping & Zero Sales Tax. eBay also offers 2% rebate. That is at least $20 less than I had to pay BarbieCollectors (Sales Tax was charged on both doll & shipping). (the lowest I have seen was one seller sold her NRFB Goddess of Galaxy at $60 with $5 shipping.)
Good luck with your “Queen”

Mattel’s Platinum Label only means “low proeudction number” –No more than 1,000 unit produced. it doesnt not represent the highest quality, it doesnt wear the higest price label, either.
1st platinum this year (maybe one & only) will go on sale on May 22nd.
the dress says “Barbie Loves Napkin-folding arts”, and she serves like a napkin holder, even with a jeweled napkin ring on the waist.
Certainly this is not the first time Barbie showed her interests in Napkin Folding, see this Barbie worked hard on someone’s Wedding Day. its also in Black & white

The more dolls I have, the less time I play. I have boxes and boxes of loose dolls, I feel I can smell the plastic, it may be not very healthy to keep so many dolls in a small place. When I didn’t have many dolls, I certainly played more. Each doll was loved and played. Now I hardly play dolls. when new dolls come home, my task would be finding them a spot to rest, thenI forget all about them. my Party Dress & Gala Gown silkstone dolls have collected plenty dust, I have left them on living room coffee table for months now.
when I was googling images yesterday evening, I found a set of my own! It reminds how much I liked to play the dolls. now I am more a “dust collector” than a doll player
(perhaps I am stealing someone’s bandwidth, but the hosting site is a free site anyway… so hope the photos show up without big red “X”)
Princess of China
The photos were taken in March, 2007. not so long after I started collecting Barbie.

she is fashionably late, I ordered her in late Feb, she arrived in May.
The Dress is lovely, lots layers
her makeup is not my favortie, , I think I like the looks of Debut, Gal on the Go, Gala Gown, Tribute, this cocktail, nothing pops to make her special . plain Jane look all the way.
The back of the dress looks terrible, It degrades the dress from Atelier Couture to ”Pretty Girl” (a $9.99 clothing Store in NYC) lets call it ”Shabby Chic”.
okay, I think I like the one I made in Feb better, when I was tied of pre-orders
I’m going to expend my”cocktail” collections:

I noticed there is no Google Doodle for Cinco De Mayo, just like Google did not Doodle “Merry Christmas”, but Barbie is Universal, she loves to celebrate the Festivals of the world!
Darya was a Russian, now she is a Mexican.
