Rear Window Grace kelly

Posted by helen on January 13, 2012

I didnt order her until BN put her on sale and BC has her  sold-out,

the skirt:  one side is much  longer than the other side.  the longer side measures 5.5″ the shorter side is 5″.  

perhaps I will make her a red dress, the one she worn in “Dia M for Murder”,

    Can’t wait to see what you do with her. Wow, dolls are selling fast at bc. They must be producing in lower numbers.

        actually i find it very odd that BC are making too many grace kelly doll versions…..2 or 3 is ok…but 4th version?……funny…n whats new…they are using the same look of grace, facepaint etc…n im getting bored w grace already….there are many possible movie and celebriities that they can make…classics are greta garbo, hallow jean singers like madonna, celine dion, katty perry lady gaga, actresses like charlize nicole kidman demi moore cameron diaz also perfect model for doll tyra banks naomi. giselle adrianna kate moss claudia they did it w heidi y not make another model..intead of those ugly star doll…….

        there are many “legal rights” issues involved. some celebrities dont want to be made into a doll. Like Madonna, she clearly stated she doesnt want to be immortalized as a Barbie doll, some ask too much $$$, paying royalties or license fees adds the production cost, Barbie often cant afford the cost. negotiating such contracts is not a easy job. I heard Mattel has tried to work with the Greace Kelly Estate for years, but never a sucess until now.

        Actresses often sue Mattel over Barbie, here are 2 examples:
        Donna Douglas who played Elly May, http://www.dailyfinance.com/2011/05/06/she-aint-playing-hillbillies-actress-sues-mattel-over-doll/

        even the not so famous singer Patricia Day (really didnt & still dont know who she is) sued Mattel over the Hard rock Cafe doll:
        http://www.lasvegassun.com/news/2010/dec/25/singer-alleges-barbie-doll-made-her-likeness

        To me, its okay if Mattel doesnt make a single celebrity doll…. Barbie Origianls are better than celebrity dolls, like flower in Fashion, essence of nature, classic Beauties, etc. these are more beautiful & carefully crafted.

    I would have purchased if her hair was like the one shown in the sneaks. Seeing her IRL made me very upset, nothing like the promo.

      I read lots comments on BFC, people dont like her hair style, also they said too much gel in the hair.. since I am a deboxer, its okay with me. I deboxed her right upon her arrival
