I can't begin to tell you how sad I was to see this doll's mold retired in 2011. She is in my top five of all doll molds. I have owned almost every version of her released. You can only imagine my excitement when she was offered in a lottery of Integrity Toys Basic Edition dolls last December.
There were only 300 in her edition size and she cost $75. I was so ecstatic that my lottery number was drawn. Even though she was listed as a 2013 doll, she did not arrive until 2014. She was the first doll added to my collection in 2014 and remains a favorite. She is Gold Glam Adele Makeda.
The mainline Adele Makeda, Vivid Encounter, used mold 3.0. At first, I wasn't going to order this doll, but collectors were very vocal about how much they loved the dress. I was able to acquire one at retail, $135. There were only 400 in her edition.
Best of 2014
