Wow--new line from Tonner Doll: Precarious!

by Alison Rasmussen


Nice and edgy, couture and fabulous, this doll shares the Antoinette/Cami body and has a brand new fashion sense. She was just released (today) as part of the new Tonner mainline release. One new basic doll is available, plus three dressed dolls and three outfits are available from pre-order from your favorite Tonner dealer. Shipping dates for the dolls and outfits are to be announced.


Precarious, the basic doll, is anything but basic. Her retail price is $124.99, and she is limited to 500. She has applied eyelashes, painted blue eyes, and two wigs: a black and white long wig with a partial updo, and a red wig with bangs.


My favorite of the three dressed dolls is Intriguing. She has rooted blue hair, styled in a bejeweled updo, painted blue eyes with applied lashes, and she is limited to 300. She retails for $199.99. She comes dressed in a sleeveless lace catsuit, tied with a satin belt. She's draped in a blue rose embroidered cape, reminiscent of Idyllic Antoinette. Notice her jewelry--earrings, necklace, bracelet and a ring! I adore her blue suede heel-less pumps, too. Wow!


Next up, Scandal - limited to 300, also $199.99. Reminiscent of Alexander McQueen, this sharply tailored winged jacket sparkles in black and is trimmed with beaded cuffs and collar. The raven-haired doll sports a sheer embroidered skirt with sequins, black hose, and sparkling black heel-less shoes. Her clustered earrings and silver brooches finish her look.


Party Girl is the final dressed doll of the Precarious collection. She is also limited to 300 dolls and retails for $199.99. She has painted blue eyes, and a rooted platinum and black ponytail. Her silhouette also reminds me of an Alexander McQueen design. She is wearing a brocade gown with a chiffon and eyelash skirt, with beading at the neck. Her accessories include silver tights and shoes and a crystal bracelet. I think this look could have used some earrings.


Swing Time is the first of three outfits, and I adore it. It will fit Antoinette, as well as Precarious, Cami and Jon. It's limited to 300 and retails for $79.99. It includes a red jersey dressed trimmed with sea stars, black tights, platform sandals, and a tiny red sculpted hat.


Decadence is limited to 300 and retails for $89.99. This painted cotton canvas dress also includes a belt with rhinestone buckle, scarf, sparkling tights, strappy shoes, gauntlets and earrings.


Last but not least, Anything Goes. This outfit is limited to 300 and retails for $99.99. It includes a black jersey tank bodysuit, faux leather jeans, cape with detachable yarn hood, tie-on rhinestone necklace, beaded belt and black brocade zip boots.
