how much?

Posted by helen on July 13, 2011

 can someone shed some light on this & explain it to  me why  this doll is worth $660?  http://cgi.ebay.com/Silkstone-Barbie-Jayne-Mansfield-OOAK-Doll-/20062501686′

 you see nothing but 2 bold eyebrows, they are  out-of-place and out of proportion…  anyway,  I  just got an offer, asking me to make a doll look similar to this one…..  honesty, she looks pretty ugly to me. is this really people want?  okay, I am lost. 

now  I’m holding a palm beach honey doll and my hands are trembling:  am I really going to wipe off her facial paint and make her look ugly?  this is a crime… but I committed such crimes before, I guess it wont hurt to do it one more time.

Countess Dracula Barbie & “Nighty Brights” Francie

Posted by helen on July 13, 2011

Finally, BFC made an  announcement about the upcoming new releases:   Countess Dracula Barbie (by Bob Mackie) & Nighty Brights silkstone  Francie (by Robert Best)

Countess Dracula Barbie is designed for Halloween. they call it a “spooktacular” doll.  Bob Mackie Dolls alway carry heavy loads on their shoulders,  they are very much like  the hard-working Porters from the old days: without the help of  any modern equipments, they had to  carry everything on their shoulders…  this Countess Dracula not only has her shoulders full but also has  her head stand the test of  a  20 Lbs  heavy load:  her hair is shaped like a giant heart –perhaps the  countess has no heart inside her chest, so she decided to carry one on her head.  another explanation is that  she loves Valentine’s Day better than Halloween Haunt.  I have no idea why this doll is called Countess Dracula, she really  is just anohter  las vegas Showgirl.

I dont know her price,  2 previous Bob Mackie dolls (Circus & Golden Legacy) are $175/each , perhaps  this one will fall in the same price range.  I have no interests in this doll,  so  it doesn’t matter if she is $34 or $175.

“Nighty Brights” Francie looks lovely, I like her PJ set and the little dolly she holds. but I dont like her accessory pack. the coat looks ugly to me.  I think its a pretty easy task to design some cute outfits for youthful-looking Francie,  so I am lost why Silkstone Francie  doesn’t have an interesting wardrobe.  what a shame.
