Best of 2015 - Number 7

For the very first time, Integrity Toys gave all W Club members the opportunity to purchase a convention doll.  It didn't matter whether you were attending or not; however, attendees got a $25 price break on the cost.

W Club members were shown a sketch of the doll with a brief description.  Even with so little information, 1325 dolls were sold!   Unfortunately, this edition size hasn't fared well for collectors who were hoping to make a quick secondary market mark-up.  She can still be picked up on e-bay for $139 which is a great price for such a beautiful doll.

When she arrived, it was obvious that Reigning Grace Eugenia Frost lived up to the movie connection of Grace Kelly.  
Unfortunately, I don't believe the hem of the dress was executed properly.  (Another quality control issue which collectors seem to be oblivious to anymore.)   The dress is a nod to the movie Rear Window.
The doll is classic Eugenia Frost, so it was a no-brainer decision to purchase a doll with such an elegant hairstyle and face up.
Out of the box, she is radiant.  Easily a top doll of 2015 and a personal favorite.  My Number 7 of 2015 - Reigning Grace Eugenia Frost.

I passed on this Eugenia with no regrets. I feel like if I did change my mind she is easily obtainable with the edition size
