Best of 2017 - Number 9

The next doll in my countdown hasn't made an appearance since 2012, but she was in the Number 1 slot that year!   It seemed that Jessy Ayala took it personally that Giselle Diefendorf has been missing from my Top 10 Countdown for the last four years and made it his mission to make sure she got listed this year, giving collectors five versions of this mold in a 12 month timespan!

Although previewed as a member of 2016 Reckless NuFace line, AKA Gigi did not make it into the hands of collectors until 2017.   Unfortunately, I totally missed the mark on this doll and, due to secondary market prices, didn't add her to my collection until November.  I reviewed her on November 25, 2017 - here is the link Review of AKA Gigi Giselle Diefendorf.

There has been some problems with "shiny face" on some of the production dolls, but neither of my dolls had this flaw.  I love the way this doll photographs.  Her stare is intense.

Because she brought me joy in remembering that I can be flawed in my initial decisions about a doll purchase, here is Number 9 of 2017, AKA Gigi Giselle Diefendorf.
