A girl you know named “Darya”

Posted by helen on May 14, 2012

I missed USPS delivery on last Friday and had to make a trip to pick up my package at post office. my post office is always crowded.. long line, long wait… today the PosterMaster was on the floor offering some customers his “fast service”, so the line could move faster. he helped to find my package and noticed it was from “Barbie collectors” so he said he used to be a Barbie Collector who collected all the porcelain Barbie dolls… what a surprise! Barbie really has huge fan bases.

Coming home with me was 4 silkstone dolls, but only this Darya is the one I have not had in my collection until now:

I like her pretty face, very festival, but I am not a big fan of this type of costumes. we know its inspried by McQueen, McQueen has many pretty designs, why did this Darya steal this one, perhaps she thought this one represents her “Russian” heritage.  but if I were her, I’d pick whatever sells better… I’d grab this one or this one, the doll would have been sold out long long times ago if  she wore one of these dresses.

 A card came along with the package:

A nice card,  but I prefer a doll sketch instead of these words. even just a line drawing…  as it would make the card collectible.

      I ordered the Silkstone book in the sale. That’s about it. Congrats on Darya! Can’t wait to see her receive the Helen touch!

        I wanted to order that book since the price was good, but decided to go with the dolls. I’ll debox Darya when I make a space for her. she needs a new dress for sure.

  2. She is very beautiful and I do like all of the embroidery on the dress, but I’m with you; she would have looked much better in one of those other dresses. (unlike the models who wore them, ewww)

      McQueen’s models are not the pretty b/c their makeup artists dont want them to be pretty. so you look at the dresses not their faces lol

      This doll reminds me of Snow White. have you seen “mirror mirror” ,that actress is nohting like Snow white, :(

      • ha ha! I guess they don’t want you looking at their faces; they want you to look at the product. I want to see that movie so much! I can’t wait; it’s too bad though about the actress; it would be nice. You’re too cute! :D

    Congrats Helen!!!! Darya is stunning!!! I ordered a second one to re-dress. Think I am in the minority, but I like the dress. And love the boots. Convention is getting close!!! See you in about seven weeks. :)

    Hey Helen,
    I agree! The McQ dresses do resemble something from Mirror Mirror ….There you go helen.. …your next project Would love to see Darya in either one of these.
