And the first Kadira Doll by Andrew Yang.
Her name is Ophelia and I love this new doll. Her red hair with the pale skintone is always a fav combination for me with dolls. And then this gorgeous lace gown !!!
She is a 13inch tesin ball-jointed doll with 15 points of articulation.
Here is Ophelia’s story to introduce her:
The Renaissance Ball in London is a who’s who of high society – old world royalty rubbing shoulders with ambassadors and movie stars – it’s tables are known as the highest price in the world for any fundraiser for the Shakespearean Arts, precisely because it is not only the place to be seen, but what better place to broker a peace deal, or an art sale?
Aside from the regular crop of Who Wore it Best – the affair is usually a stuffy one, where everyone is usually practicing their best behavior, delivering sanitized sound bites to the press and going through the motions of the one percent hustle. But at this year’s gala, one mysterious woman stole the night.
From the moment playboy heir Ramses Ducati ascended the red carpet, the paparazzi went wild, and the press all clamored to the front lines. On the arm of the world’s wealthiest playboy, was a red-haired beauty in a stunning couture confection of dusty gold. No one knew her name, and she and Mr. Ducati only smiled and laughed when asked, breezing by the peanut gallery and sending us all to our phones to research before the festivities started.
Was she a model? A new ingénue? Daughter of a Russian oligarch or cousin to Saudi royalty?
But no one found out – and it sent the organizers of the gala into a frenzy as the perplexing beauty was ushered to a seat reserved for Mr. Ducati’s usual companion, the painter Massimo DeVries. And as if this scandalous entrance wasn’t enough, you can imagine the shock of everyone in the room when she took Mr. DeVries’ placard, and burned it over the candelabras and champagne!
As the night went on, it was clear that Ramses and this mystery woman had started the party much earlier – the pair laughed and cackled at inside jokes during the speeches from the chairman, and yawned as the head of the Globe Theater made his thanks and talked about the year’s upcoming productions.
They were only silent during the spellbinding performance of Adjuma Grace’s Opehlia aria – and even though the opera singer’s beauty shone bright and voice carried to the stars, all eyes were watching the stunning mystery woman – who seemed transported to another world, eyes closed and tears rolling down her cheeks. She was the first to stand in an ovation, pushing over her chair and rushing to the stage, almost stumbling over the endless ruffles in her gown. When Ramses, who at this point looked mildly embarrassed, scurried to her side to bring her back to the table, she gave him a venomous stare and cursed loudly, before fleeing the room herself!
Who is this enigmatic Ophelia?
