Whether writing in her diary, walking Mouette, or picnicking in the cemetery, Robert-Tonner-designed Evangeline always feels simply ghastly when wearing a beautiful black lace gown featuring a black velvet eyelash jacket with chiffon laced trimmed sleeves over a black spider web embroidered lace, with a chiffon overskirt. She wears it with her favorite black velvet pumps, choker with beaded accents, and matching lace umbrella (a must-have for her delicate, pale skin). Her long black wig and beautiful life-like eyes make for a very dramatic look, although no one ever seems to notice. Evangeline is 19” tall, ball jointed, and crafted entirely of custom-poured fine resin. Launch date: late summer 2007.
