Summer Vacation Day 40
I LOVED version 1.0 of Veronique Perrin pre-2006; however, in my opinion, Vero seemingly did not transfer well to the taller body. I'm not sure why and don't understand how her facial screenings were so completely different from the earlier versions. In my opinion, her sweet smile somehow changed to a scowl. Onyx Veronique Perrin is the only post 2006 version of 1.0 living here with original screening (only because the "Glamorous Collection" is my favorite FR basic line ever and I have them all).
Like her arch enemy Natalia Fatale, age had crept up on Veronique Perrin and she had to go into seclusion for some "minor cosmetic surgery". She disappeared from the lineup for two whole years 2009 and 2010 which seemed like a very long time to heal. Veronique version 2.0 has been released eight times (five in 2011 and three in 2012) before moving on to the FR2 body in 2013. Although I really like Veronique version 2.0, there is only one living here, Breaking the Mold Veronique Perrin.
There is something elegant and tranquil about Breaking the Mold Veronique She is simple but stunning. Breaking the Mold Veronique Perrin was part of the mainline of dolls released in 2011. She retailed for $110 and there were 600 in the edition. To me, she is one of the most under-rated dolls produced. I am surprised she isn't on more grail lists.
