The surprise from the Poppy reveal was nothing compared to the Industry one. Not even a capsule collection was dedicated to The Industry: only one single doll was unveiled, the new refreshed and revamped Tulabelle. The doll pays homage to her first 16” namesake, wearing the same outfit, with an added look as a bonus. The new sculpt looks nothing like the previous one, not even like the original 16” doll. She looks like she has a wide face, a worrying trend for new Integrity sculpts. The outfit is nice, channelling Anna Sui boho chic, with great accessories, but I don’t like the doll. She has hints of a young Marie Osmond. Not a good thing in my book. And she is $155.00. Ouch.
She does look better in the real life photo by David Buttry, which is encouraging. Will see how she transforms in future incarnations. The China factory problems are the reason again for not having a proper Industry collection. Looks like this is going to be a dry doll year. Only W Club members are allowed to enter a lottery for a chance to purchase this doll, so if you want one, you’ll have to wait for a chance to pick her up on the secondary market.
