One of the reasons I always encourage readers to join the W Club is the purchase opportunities offered throughout the year. This year members were given a lottery offering for a rarely seen NuFace character, Annik Vandale. Since her introduction in 2011, Annik has only been offered in three other versions.
For every fault Jessy Ayala has a designer, he has about 10 strengths. That's why I often have a weakness for his NuFace girls. I was thrilled to win the opportunity to purchase this version and was thrilled by the production doll.
Here is a full length of Mademoiselle Annik Vandale in the box.
And a closeup in the box.
This doll came with some pretty amazing accessories. (Photo property of Integrity Toys)
I love this handbag! The twisted jewelry watch is out of this world! The ensemble consists of baggy pants and over-sized matching jacket. There is a little light blue bustier. Which brings us to ... I guess sometimes you just need to rip the bandage off ... so ... here is an IT promo photo of Mademoiselle IT vs. the Mattel promo photo of Model of the Moment Marissa.
They really could be sisters! I actually still have this Marissa on an articulated body. She is one of my favorite versions of Barbie. The similarity cannot be denied. Integrity's quality, though, easily surpasses the Mattel version.
So here is a photo of Mademoiselle Annik Vandale out of the box.And another closeup.
