I took a chance with the last W Club ITBE lottery and put one ticket for each membership on just one doll - Second Skin Vanessa. I knew she would be impossible to get on the secondary market, and I was so happy when I won the chance to purchase her for $75. Here she is in her box.
The skin tone is definitely not easy to photograph. Depending on whether you use studio or natural lighting, the tone can look very different.
Growing up in a bi-racial family, I realize that people come in all colors with all types of facial features. I embrace Vanessa with this new skin tone and think she is exceptional. For me, personally, she is a beautiful example of a woman of color, and I am excited to have added her to my collection.
