Let them eat cake!

Opening night at the Tonner convention Friday, May 21, the theme was Let Them Eat Cake--I am so sorry I missed this event.

I need my friend Jen (of JennyGrey) to recreated some of these gowns for my Peak's Woods girls. All of the big Peak's Woods girls, I think. (Did you hear that, Jen?)

Let's start the convention out with a commonly misquoted line attributed to Marie Antoinette, as long as dolls like this show up. Takes The Cake, the platinum-haired purple lingerie dressed doll is a new sculpt (called Duchess) on an Antoinette body, and a limited edition of 350 piece, and she was the event souvenir. The three centerpiece dolls are Madame a la Menthe (the green dressed doll above), a blonde Daphne sculpt; Madame a la Framboise (the pink dressed doll below), a red-haired Kit sculpt; and finally, Madame et le Citron (the yellow dressed doll below), a raven-haired Sydney sculpt. 

Each center piece doll is a limited edition of 100, and they include fun lace tights, cute period shoes, and feathered hair trim, as well as heavy resin gold doll stands, grand enough for the evening. They were raffled off as sets, I believe. Towards the end of the week, any event extras should be available at retail prices on, and you may be able to find some overpriced ones for sale on Ebay now.

I have to confess, I'm a fan of historical fashion. And I love all three centerpiece dolls. Especially Sydney. I don't have much yellow in my collection. And ooooh--another raven Sydney... One can dream, right? (I'm trying to save for IFDC, and I'm not being very successful.)

  1. Are you going to make some outfits like these for your little teeny dolls?? I'd love to see those! ;)

  2. Is Sydney the only one on a standard Tyler body? I'm looking at legs as my clue.

  3. ...but then, they all look like they have jointed ankles, but different knees...I'm so confused! lol

  4. divine dolls, and convention i am sad, because I could not be there... :( Dolls are so preatty!


  5. Good question, Lori! I've heard only Daphne is on the Antoinette body, but it kind of looks like Kit might also be. At least both Sydney and Kit have convertible feet, it seems. I can't tell without comparing them side by side, and I couldn't find anything else about them yet.

    (Also, the Duchess sculpt is on an Ant body, too.)
