Since the Tonner City Girls are technically related to our Wilde Imagination Ellowyne dolls, expect Wilde Wednesday’s to contain photos of any doll that happens to have a Tonner lineage – from Little Miss Matched, Tonner collectibles, Ellowyne, City Girls and Maudlynne – to name a few. Today we are going to take a closer look at Tonner Toys Golden Swirl Astor – the deluxe doll in the City Girls collection as of now.
The Fashion Show rehearsal is about to begin and although Astor will be wearing her gorgeous golden swirl dress, she is nervous!
The Golden Swirl Astor is the deluxe version of the Color Block Astor doll from the City Girls collection. She has a more elegant hair style, has gold hoop earrings, a golden tiered dress, gold high heeled shoes and a gold shawl. Like the other City Girls she is just shy of 16″ tall and is very poseable. She does not stand well on her own and unfortunately she did not come with a stand so we will have to find one so we can display the City Girls on the shelf next to the Ellowynes – since we know the Ellowynes are not about to share their shelf.
Astor’s gown is layers and layers of tulle with a golden bodice, shawl and gold bracelets, earrings and shoes.
She is borrowing an Ellowyne doll stand for the time being although it is a little big for her. I am going to have to find some of the stands that hold the dolls at the waist instead.
Astor’s best friend Houston fixes a few stray pieces in Astor’s hair style. Houston is wearing a Doll Diaries t-shirt that fits most 16″ fashion dolls. Houston is currently sold as a basic doll and comes dressed in her lacy undergarments and a robe. Natalie decided to put her in the Doll Diaries top and jeans and now she is so comfortable she doesn’t want to change.
Astor’s hair comes styled in an elaborate three twist bun style secured with clear plastic thread. I do not recommend taking her hair down because chances are, you will never get it to look like this again.
“Whoah!!!! Excuse me? Who said SHE could steal my spotlight? Now this is just getting out of hand!” cried Elle.
“Astor, I tried to warn you about Elle! She’s a little high strung!” said Houston with a sigh.
One of Astor’s artistic shots from the fashion show. I had fun with special effects on this one – notice how I pulled out almost all the color except the gold? I think it is stunning.
What do you think of Astor? Do you think Elle is about to have a nervous breakdown with all these new beauties in the Doll Diaries kingdom?
