I received a double portion of Gene Marshall today! I usually prefer the Madra dolls, but these Gene’s were really lovely. Of course they get photographed and then go back in their boxes because I don’t have the space to display them, since my smaller gals have taken over my room. Oh well, I can still enjoy the beauty of these dolls….
First is the WClub Exclusive “Candied Lavender” Gene Marshall. I really like Gene with darker hair & this lavender coloring is wonderful on her. She’s got an awesome dress, fur stole (lined in lavender satin), satin “skinny” heels, jewelry & gloves. What I really like is her little beaded hat with netting! Super cute! I don’t really remember how I was supposed to put the hat on her…..oh well….
And now I’m thinking about putting her back nude & keeping this outfit separate for the AG doll “No Exaggeration”. She’s got that purple eye makeup & this may just go perfectly on her! Hmmm….what to do, what to do….
Next up is the Gene Tour Fan Appreciation doll “Marceline”. This was a more limited doll & I was drawn to this Gene because of those wonderful curls in her hair! “Marceline” Gene comes with an asymmetrical jacket with button detail down the side, long pencil skirt, ankle strap heels, jewelry, tri-pointed hat, and fox stole. I love the stole with the little fox head & tail on it! Very vintage looking! Again, the hat became a problem for me since I couldn’t remember how the promo shots had it on her. So I just put it on how I thought it looked best.
