Today’s doll is my X Files Collector Edition Dana Scully Barbie from 1998. This was the first Collector Edition gift set that Naomi and I bought together. It was when we first started to collect and the set was quite expensive for us at the time. We’ve spent a lot more money on dolls since! We went halves and Naomi took Fox Mulder and I took Dana Scully. Once they were de-boxed Dana became Laura.
I still do have her original outfit but when I looked for it this morning I did not see it so I think it is in one of the packed boxes. I will dig it out one day but actually although it is nicely made I don’t care for it much as the fabric of the jacket and pants is rather thick and bulky. That’s probably why it is packed away come to think of it.
Laura has lost her ring and the cross from her chain necklace. It was lost before Toby was on the scene so we can’t blame him for this one. Either it was the victim of one of the infamous cracks in the floor we are always falling foul of or she lost it in an encounter with a Vampire. Perhaps we’ll find out one day.
Today Laura is wearing a selection of outfits that I thought might do for work. I tried my repro Commuter Set suit on her and I was surprised to find that the blouse does not fit her. Vivienne, who also has the old TNT body can wear it.
Next I tried a generic vinyl coat with an animal print collar and finally a Fashion Avenue fashion from 2001 also featuring animal print trim. The boots from this outfit go well with the coat I think.
