    Two new dolls and one outfit are the newest additions to the Marilyn Monroe line by Tonner Doll. I like that they are relasing more and more of her outfits and hope to be able to buy some in the future.

    The first dressed doll has of course the Marilyn Monroe head sculpt on a 16" Starlet body with the Tyler skin tone. She has blue painted eyes with applied eyelashes and blonde rooted saran hair. She is wearing an  off white and brown dress, with an off white and brown matching turban. Off white gloves, a brown belt with gold stud, rhinestone earrings, nude pantyhose and a pair of brown faux leather shoes complete the look. She comes with a stand.


    I still cannot get used to the MM sculpt by Tonner. I still find it harsh and missing that ethereal "baby" undertone that she had in most of her photos and films. This could be used for Madonna or Jane Russel with much more success. The outfit though is gorgeous. It is a Travilla design (he did lots of her films) and is from the iconic 1953 film "How To Marry A Millionaire". Below are some captures from the film as well as her costume fitting photograph.


    In the scene she is with Alexander D'Arcy, who played a phoney millionaire.




    So it seems we are missing the drop earring and rhinestone bracelet plus the bag. I wish they could have made her turban less puffy.

    The second doll is a basic one.She has a black bathing suit, nude pantyhose (why?), black faux leather shoes with clear platforms. She comes with a stand.


    This is Marilyn from 1952's "Monkey Business", the scene in the bathing suit. The doll looks even less than Marilyn here and more like Madonna. Why is she in pantyhose? She does not wear that in the film and not even in publicity shots. I love the shoes, they look fantastic, Below are some photos of the star in this swimsuit.


    It seems that this (above) is the photo that inspired the doll. They missed the number 7 on the swimsuit. You can see her below with her co-star in the film, Cary Grant.






    The Problem with Rose - Outfit
    Price: $99.99
    Availability: Pre-order until 3/4/2013

    This is the sole outfit of this line. It features a white blouse under a short red coat with faux pearl button and a black skirt. White gloves and black faux leather shoes complete the look.



    This is an outfit from the 1953 film "Niagara". very faithful to the original. Below are some photos with Marilyn wearing this outfit. The real shoes had much more intricate detail.

    This is one of my favourite Tonner Doll lines. I managed to get one doll from this last year and she is gorgeous. It seems that it is also getting better. This year there are two dressed dolls, two basics and two outfits.


    Luncheon Date

    The first dressed doll is of course DeeAnna Denton™ with her 16" curvaceous body in the Tyler skin tone. She has green painted eyes with applied eyelashes and golden blonde rooted saran hair, She is wearing a black hat with faux fur trim and a red bow, a white jacket with black beaded buttons, black faux fur cuffs, and black and white faux fur collar. It is cinched with a black patent leather belt over a black pencil skirt.  Nude pantyhose, red bead earrings, a red beaded necklace, red gloves and red patent leather shoes complete the look. She comes with a stand.


    Period perfect, this is a gorgeous doll, even though her earrings are a bit simple regarding the rest of the outfit. She should have had a bag too, as would be appropriate for the era.



    Afternoon Cocktails
    Price: $209.99

    The second dressed doll is Peggy Harcourt™ on a 16" curvaceous body in the Tyler skin tone. She has purple painted eyes with applied eyelashes and pale blonde rooted saran hair. Her outfit consists of an iridescent purple skirt, matching purple and fuchsia top with gold studs, one pink and one purple glove, rhinestone bracelets, a rhinestone necklace, rhinestone earrings, nude pantyhose, purple faux suede shoes, an iridescent purple and fuchsia hat and a purple faux fur shawl. She comes with a stand.


    Peggy is my favourite sculpt from this line and she looks gorgeous yet again. The outfit is a bit outré but is period perfect, although we still miss a handbag to go. The turban looks a bit smashed, I hope the production ones look better. I love the draping on the top. As they do not describe it as a jacket, it probably opens on the back and not on the front.



    All Vintage DeeAnna
    Price: $134.99

    LE 500


    One basic doll is DeeAnna Denton™. She has brown painted eyes with applied eyelashes and a pale blonde removable saran wig. She has the Tyler skin tone (and always the curvaceous body). She sports a light purple teddy with ruffle trim and garters over nude pantyhose and purple molded plastic shoes. She comes with a stand.


    This one looks better than the dressed DeeAnna! The teddy and garters are a nice touch. We have seen the molded plastic shoes before on basic Tyler dolls. And in the same colour.


    All Vintage Peggy
    Price: $134.99
    Availability: Reserve yours now!
    T13DDBD02
    LE 500


    Of course the second basic doll is Peggy Harcourt™ with the 16" curvaceous body in a Tyler skin tone. She has green painted eyes with applied eyelashes and a mink removable saran wig. She has a teal teddy with ruffle trim and garters over nude pantyhose and teal molded plastic shoes. She comes with a stand.


    Look at those gorgeous green eyes! She has almost the same colouring as my own Peggy, Short N'Sassy but with green eyes (even better) and lighter brows. If I did not have SNS, I would get her in an instant. They should have made the outfit in teal, it would look so much better.


    A Day at the Races - Outfit
    Price: $99.99
    Availability: Reserve yours now!
    T13DDOF01
    LE 200


    The first outfit is a floral print dress with white ribbon trim at the waist. It has a white crinoline petticoat. Accessories include a white hat with faux flowers, white gloves, faux pearl earrings, a faux pearl necklace and black faux leather shoes.


    While the dressed dolls are wearing winter ensembles, the solo outfits are decidedly summery. Light and airy, again this is period perfect apart from a missing bag.


    High Tea at The Plaza - Outfit
    Price: $99.99
    Availability: Reserve yours now!
    T13DDOF02
    LE 200


    The last outfit is a peach dress with white embroidered organza overlay and an attached belt. Accessories include a white hat with peach tulle and faux flower decoration, matching faux leather shoes, a faux pearl necklace, faux pearl earrings and white gloves.


    She is without a bag again. A dreamy confection this one, it could also use nude pantyhose. No lady of that era would be caught dead without it.

  • 02/11/13--16:10: "Arrivederchi"
  • Count me among those who were stunned at the news of the Pope's resignation. That's all I have to say about that.

    This photo was originally posted on Facebook today 1/11/13, however I cannot find the original or I would link back to it. If you have a link, please let me know.
    Another collector posted it on Prego. I think it's a hoot.

    I'm impressed by the amount of detail. At first I thought that the collector really did this fast but then I looked at the date - December, 2012.  Apparently it was not always called Arrivederchi (which means goodbye in Italian.) The priests are holding fashion magazines. There are fashion boxes all over with shoes spilling out amongst little shopping bags. One nun is admiring a tulle item....

    Oh the stories the dolls could tell.

    Note: The original title "Urbi et Orbi" definition from Wikipedia:
    Urbi et Orbi ("to the City [of Rome] and to the World"; literally, "[to (the)] City and to [the] World") denotes a papal address and Apostolic Blessing that is given to the City of Rome and to the entire world, on certain occasions. It was a standard opening of Ancient Roman proclamations.
    The blessing is given each Easter and Christmas in Rome from the central loggia of Saint Peter's Basilica, at noontime. Part of the urbi et orbi blessing is the remission of all temporal punishment due to sin through a plenary indulgence attached to the Papal blessing.
