|The very complicated pictures at the top are Fuzz and Shanna's. The 'Knocking on Heaven's Door" at the bottom left is Emma's, and the lame "Leverage", at the bottom right is mine.|
Today's doll fit in her photo shoot between my cleaning the living room,making raspberry peach ice tea, putting things outside for the 'do',and the kids arriving. Here she is. She's Darci.
Darci was made by Kenner.
She was only produced for two years, 1979 to 1981.
Darci was a fashion model.
She originally came in a white body suit and white lace wrap around skirt. I don't have those, since when I found this Darci at my favourite Goodwill a couple of weeks ago,she was attired only in a piece of blue painters tape which read '1.00'. It was at least strategically placed,although two pieces would have improved her modesty immensely.
|I'll let you guess where the tape was placed.|
The girl has some big feet.
Being such an odd size, at least by fashion doll standards, means Darci can't share clothes with many other dolls. Certainly not with Barbie,Tuesday Taylor,or even Cher or The Bionic Woman.She's almost the size of Jem.
So she had to make due with this vintage silk hankie.
|This is her Angelina Jolie pose.|
|This is her "Why did I let you put me in a hanky?" pose.|
She has a twist waist,very bendable click knees,bendable elbows, and jointed wrists.
Blonde is the most common Darci hair colour, but she was also produced as a brunette and a red head.
|What an unfortunate neck seam.|
Her hair was originally pulled into a side ponytail,with a gigantic flower on her hair elastic. This way she reminds me of Morgan Fairchild.
|"I'm Morgan Fairchild, and I can afford more than a hanky."|
Or maybe Deidre Hall from Electra Woman and Dyna Girl and Days of Our Lives.
There is actually a doll of her 'Days' character,Marlene.
Actually, there are two.
Darci had two friends,Erica and Dana.
She also had her own Disco playset...eww. You can see the commercial HERE.
Being a fashion model, Darci is very photogenic.
It also helps that she is very posable.
You can see Darci's commercials HERE ...
See you tomorrow for another doll.
