Best of 2013 - Number 7

I believe Integrity always gives collectors great IFDC dolls.   I have owned many of them.  This year they did the “NuFantasy” line again which is a personal favorite of mine.  (Hansel and Gretel appeared as my Number 2 on the Best of 2012 list.) 

The 2013 IFDC theme was “Horror High”.   I was expecting NuFace dolls along the lines of Bratzilla and Monster High.  I guess that would’ve been too obvious.  Instead Integrity gave us modern interpretations of classic female horror characters.

My favorite was easily Bloodlines Tatyana, and I didn't even take my chances with the W Club lottery on this one.  I grabbed her up from a doll friend at a great price.
It's been a while since we've seen a face this extraordinary.  Just look at those eyes!
The necklace is an actual miniature of a designer necklace!   The earrings are minimal, but anything else would just get tangled in all that luxurious hair.  Even with my OCD, I am somehow handling the strays okay.  The shoes are little works of art - they are white, covered in lace, with really high heels.
Did you notice the white streaks in that raven hair?   I grew up watching Lily Munster on television.   This was a “no brainer” for me.   Integrity Toys did a great job giving us a modern interpretation of this television icon.
This doll is just wonderful.  I love her stock.  

Number 7

Tatyana & Imogen are my favorite ladies from IFDC. I had Anja but we didn't bond son she went on to someone who loves her.

Loving your countdown :O)
