From 2005, this Effanbee doll is from the Modern Doll Collectors Convention in Anaheim, CA. She was limited to 175 dolls, and she has been a grail of mine for some time.

I think she's just fantastic. Her gown reminds me of one of my very first 16" fashion dolls, Brenda Starr's Sizzling Sensation, also a MDCC exclusive from 2004. It feels like silk, and it's lined in white fabric. Her shoes are red pumps with ankle straps and red and white bows.

Her jewelry is really nice, too--she has two rhinestone bracelets and drop earrings, which match the rhinestone accent on her gown. She includes white gloves, which I actually didn't put on for the photo shoot.

She has wonderfully 1940s era facial screening. My friend Carolyn probably could fix her hair to make it perfect. It's styled in an updo with loose curls at the top. Additionally, she's one of the few raven-haired Daphne Dimples dolls, which I love.
