A new Scarlett doll –Shame Dress
In Mattel’s promo photos, she has 2 straight arms, but the production doll has 2 bent arms, I do not like that.
Her dress is so simple and in lack of details, I pressed on some “self-adhesive rhinestones”
Except for the color, the dress is nothing like the original Movie costumes, its not a “collectible” replica, Mattel decided, at $34.99, that’s all you deserve.
2. BBQ Dress
I purchased BBQ Scarlett doll at 2009 Barbie Convention and deboxed her in my hotel room, sadly, she had “Sticky Sweaty” legs, so I tossed her body and placed her head on a “Model Muse” body. her dress is made of 100% cotton and it comes with white cotton bloomers and a tulle petticoat, the quality is better than today’s Mattel-standard doll dresses. the doll’s face is also very pretty, her head is smaller than the new Scarlett’s.
3. drapery Dress
This doll was purchased from eBay before I headed to 2009 Convention, I was too busy to debox her. After I found the BBQ Scarlett had sticky legs, I presumed this doll would be the same. so I sent her back to eBay, let NRFBers have her, they dont debox, it wouldnt matter to them.
4. White Pray Dress
well, this is not Mattel’s version, but my “labor of love”, the dress cost me 15 yard white lace (1/2″ width), 1 yard (44″ width) Cotton Voile and… Hours & Hours of work! I should have not spent so much time to make it, it was not cost-effective, not fun, either
The doll is a repainted “Shame Dress doll”.
It has a hoop petticoat underneath to make the skirt look fuller
why did I feel the need to make one of my own? as Mattel’s version looks like “Birthay Wishes” doll it made in 2005. doesnt it?
and the first layer of the ruffles at back of the dress are not connected… instead of 8 layers, it only has 6 layers of ruffles
The skirt does not have enough drapes and volumes like the original movie costumes
