The new Audrey Hepburn Doll
Posted by helen on June 14, 2013
I was reading BFC people’s comments on the pictures of the Prototype Roman Holidays Barbie Doll. I have seen it at Toy Fair, I agree with people who said the doll’s head & body are not well proportioned–at least, that’s the impression the prototype picture is giving us. but it could be the outfits she wears are unflattering, or the bad angle of the Picture was taken, etc.
Here is a change of perspective:
The doll on the left is Mattel’s prototype, the one on the right is a product of PhotoShop. can you tell the differences? the head size is smaller, and her body is a little bit fuller. and — I like my dolls wear brighter colors. so the skirt is now in pink.
Actually, I figured the skirt is a problem == the materials used to make this skirt is too stiff, it has to be flowy chiffon.
see her skirt in the picture below has lots drapes, but the Barbie doll’s doesnt have. I would rather have the other 2 set costumes made, but Mattel always chooses the easist.
