#5 of 2016

The next doll was a surprise for me.   There are certain Integrity sculpts that I prefer over others.   Since this mold is not one of the "Core Dolls" in the Integrity lineup, she doesn't often make an appearance.  This year she showed up not once ... not twice ... but three times.  Her release in the mainline was a disaster, and it was great to see her redeem herself at the convention.  And what better to redeem yourself than being the actual convention doll!  Here is Diva Dasha in the box.
And a closeup in the box.  She reminds me of Cybil Shepherd.
Here are her accessories.  She also came with a Versace mini skirt and ankle boots.  This time in a rose pink color.
I often wait until I see IRL pictures of dolls and try to choose one that best fits what I like in a doll.  It took me a few weeks, but I found this one.  Here she is outside the box.  The gown is inspired by a 1995 Christian Lacroix original.
Let's add the train - which attaches with little hooks and threads.  I don't know how long I will be able to leave her in her original ensemble - for some reason I think that stain warning card should be taken seriously with this girl!
I wanted a doll with hair that I wouldn't have to wash or try to restyle.  I got exactly what I was looking to find.  #5 of 2016 is Diva Dasha.

Looks like a lot of this year's convention dolls made your list. I am in total agreement. They did such a great job this year with the dolls. Of course, since it was my first convention, I may be just a little prejudiced!
