I went on-record with a guess of a new character. Integrity Toys has a history of releasing new characters at a convention:
2004: Cosmetic Takeover Natalia
2006: Concerto in M Agnes Von Weiss
2007: Raw Appeal Lukas Maverick
2008: Fete Acompli Tatyana Alexandrova, Mission Moscow Takeo Mizutani, and Elements of Surprise Eden/Lillith
2009: Blue Blood Elyse Jolie and Evening Glow Dominique Makeda
2010: Hourglass Kesenia, Provactarice Anja, Night Vision Adrian Von Lamberg, and Always Polished Dasha
2011: Faubourg St. Honore Victoire
2012: High Point Vanessa Perrin mold 3.0
2014: Evening Siren Ayumi Nakamura mold 3.0
For the first time in a very long while, Integrity Toys presented a collection with no "repeated characters". On the night of the banquet, it was a given that Elyse Jolie would be making an appearance. Veronique and Adele had both already shown up, Eugenia was a special convention W Club exclusive, Agnes was a gift set. When attendees entered the dining hall to find Elyse as the centerpiece, there was a lot of speculation about who was yet to come: the names Rayna, Colette, Dasha, and Tatyana were being tossed around.
When the moment arrived, it has been reported that a silence fell over the banquet room. Making An Entrance Karolin Stone was unveiled.
I immediately spotted a resemblance to The Dark One "Dark Swan Emma" from the television show Once Upon A Time. Using odd pieces from different dolls, I was able to coordinate an ensemble to capture this character.
