“ Brand: King Features Syndicate / Type: Collectible „
I'm sure I do not need to advise that I have a real passion for Betty Boop figurines and own an absolutely stunning collection, which are proudly on display in one corner of my living room in several glass cabinets. There are a few figurines that I've owned for quite some time, but I hadn't been able to review them until now, as I was unable to provide an image to Dooyoo to accompany my product suggestion. Fortunately, a few of them are now once again available for purchase both online and in store, so I am now able to discuss Betty Boop French Maid.
The figurine stands at 30 cm in height, which seems to be the standard height for the majority of my figurines. Betty weighs approximately one kilogram and has been manufactured entirely from resin. Her sexy white high heeled shoes are firmly fixed to a black glossy circular stand measuring approximately 9 cm in diameter. If you are familiar with Betty Boop you will be aware that she is a lady who loves posing and in this figurine we see her pushing her rear end outwards and her ample bust forwards, which gives me the distinct impression that she's attempting to grab a little male attention!
She likes nothing more than to be scantily clad and as she is the proud owner of such a curvaceous figure she seems to get away with it regardless of her profession. I presume from Betty's uniform that she is employed at a hotel or restaurant or she may well have paid a recent visit to Ann Summers! She clearly is not paying much attention to the job in hand, as she seems more interested in showing off her sexy figure. She wears a traditional French Maid's outfit with an extremely short black skirt that barely covers her modesty. Her top half displays a rather tight fitting blouse, which is somewhat ill fitting around the bust area where we are able to witness her ample cleavage, which is almost spilling out! There is a pretty laced pattern located around both the neck of her blouse and hems of her sleeves and to complete her outfit she wears a waist apron that ties in a large raised knot at the rear.
Betty's hands are resting neatly behind her back and tightly hold the handle of her huge feather duster. The attention to detail is very captivating, as the manufacturer has created very realistic looking feathers from the resin material; all of which have been individually painted with a reddish brown colouring. To complete Betty's French Maid appearance she wears a tiny hat, if I can actually call it that and it almost disappears in between Betty's black glossy curls, which are depicted by eight curvy points that run along the top of her head. If you are familiar with this cheeky little lady you will be aware of a further eight curves that are styled around the edges of her face.
Betty wears a pair of large golden hoop earrings and her facial features rarely change from one figurine to the next. We are able to witness her huge green eyes, long black eye lashes, perfect groomed eyebrows and ruby red lipstick. The majority of my figurines show Betty's lips displayed in a puckered position, as if she's about to plant a large smacker on some unsuspecting male. However, in this figurine she appears to be smiling and the look on her face seems rather mischievous.
To ensure your figurine's authenticity, the manufacturer, namely The Hearst Holdings Inc has displayed both their name and logo on the underside. The stand allows the figurine to firmly display in one of my cabinets, so I have the assurance that it will not tip over. Cleaning the figurine is a relatively easy task by way of a small clean paintbrush, particularly as there are a number of hard to reach areas; the majority of which are inside her feather duster. I can find absolutely no fault whatsoever with the workmanship of this beautiful collectable and the attention to detail is of the highest quality. If you are interested in purchasing Betty Boop French Maid I would advise that she is readily available on Amazon and will cost you around £40 inclusive of postage and packing. As you have no doubt guessed, I am extremely pleased with this figurine and as a result, it receives 5 stars from me.
I hope you found my review useful and would thank you for reading.
