REVIEW: Nevermore Ellowyne Wilde
The Ellowyne Wilde line of designer dolls, sculpted by Robert Tonner, is the newest doll with a mood. What mood would that be? Umm…maybe discontent or ennui.
Produced by Wilde Imagination, the line consists of basic dolls, dressed dolls and outfits. For purposes of this review, we’ll be looking at the Nevermore dressed doll.
So what has Nevermore written about herself? A little poem in the vein of Edgar Allen Poe:
A dark cloud lingers over me;
and revels in my misery
A cold wind blows and whispers afore;
"Remember Ellowyne, NEVERMORE"
All of the dolls are securely packaged in the same large Ellowyne Wilde box. Each figure is very well protected, with the hair in a plastic hairnet, accessories individually packaged and the doll tied to the box using ribbon and foam.
The Nevermore Ellowyne doll stands at 16” from head to toe. The body
is made of hard plastic, while the doll’s head is high-quality vinyl.
Each Ellowyne doll has 12 points of articulation, which is great for
posing (especially with the solid doll stand).
Nevermore has red, rooted saran hair and hand-painted
features…including bright blue eyes. Her all black outfit is made up
of a designer dress, shawl, lace gloves, stockings and boots.
Nevermore is limited to a run of 1,000 pieces.
The Ellowyne Wilde line is one of our personal favorites. At 16” in
height, it’ll tower over your 1/6 scale figures. Robert Tonner is one
of the most talented doll sculptors around, just check out the work he
has done with this line and others. The expressions he creates with
his sculpting and painting are amazing. You can see each doll’s
personality through its eyes. Wilde Imagination’s Ellowyne Wilde dolls
are top of the line…from the sculpt to the doll materials to the
clothes and accessories.
