Mermaid Gown Silkstone

by Dutch Fashion Doll World

I always love the promotion pictures from Mattel with the amazing sets they make for the Silkstone collection. And today they posted this picture on the Barbie Collector Site.

It seems like the Silkstone girls from the 2013 collection are finally on board now.

This is the story that Mattel published with this picture:

The 2013 Barbie® Fashion Model Collection sends another amazing doll down the runway! Mermaid Gown Barbie® Doll sends out an irresistible siren call to anyone who loves couture.

It is said the goddess Atargatis transformed into the first mermaid after the accidental death of her human lover. Grieving, she cast herself into a lake, intending to take the form of a fish. However, her incredible beauty could not be hidden, and she remained half woman, half sea creature.

Many a sailor has been lured away from his ship trying to catch a mere glimpse of a magical mermaid. Although the National Ocean Service says no evidence has ever been found to prove the existence of these captivating creatures, they have long been celebrated in story and song.

Can’t wait to see what the other girl and guy that still had to be released this year are going to do on this ship. And where the ship will take them next year. I hope they will take them on a cruise to some exotic places.
