Betty Boop In Wedding Dress
Advantages: Absolutely stunning and perfect for any Betty Boop collector
Disadvantages: None for me
If you're a newcomer to my reviews you will not be aware that I'm Betty Boop mad and I mean mad! For those of you who have been following my reviews you will be aware that Betty hasn't featured for quite a few weeks, particularly as I have been concentrating on toiletries, so it's now time to change that! My latest purchase has to be one of my favourites, so a product suggestion was made to Dooyoo to enable me to tell you all about her.
This gorgeous figurine stands at approximately 12 inches high and weighs around a kilogram. She is fairly new to the shops and I believe she was introduced within the last month or so as she is part of the 2011 collection. In my opinion this figurine is quite unique because if you are familiar with this cheeky lady you will be aware that she loves to show her long slender legs, which she generally decorates with a rather sexy garter! However, Betty is presented to us in her stunning wedding dress, which flows to the floor, so sorry guys, she's spoken for!
This figurine takes my collection to around 70 (and yes, I am insured!) and almost all of them are presented to us on a circular stand, but this figurine shows Betty standing firmly on the base of her beautiful sparkly ivory wedding dress. This collectable is quite exquisite, as the workmanship is simply first class where dozens of tiny diamantes have been painstakingly placed across the tight fitting bodice, sleeves and the skirt of her dress.
The dress appears extremely realistic and at first glance you would believe it to be made from material yet it has been manufactured from resin, as has the remainder of the figurine. The dress has been decorated with beautiful swirling flowers, which have been created to look as if they are part of the "fabric" and these run along her sleeves and bodice with a trail reaching from her waist to almost the length of her skirt.
Betty's left hand is outstretched where she proudly displays her pearl engagement ring, together with her matching hoop bracelet. Her right hand is held tightly against her waist where we see her tightly clutching her beautiful bouquet of bright pink roses. It is quite fascinating to look at the design of the roses, particularly as each has been created to mirror the real thing and they have been carefully displayed with tiny leaves throughout the bouquet.
Betty wears a pretty white pearl necklace to match both her engagement ring and bracelet and her earrings have been created from three crystals to form a droplet effect. It's a shame that I am unable to upload any photographs, particularly as the rear of this figurine is as equally stunning where we see Betty's beautiful dress flowing behind her.
As with all of the figurines the facial features display Betty's huge green eyes, which are cute and always looking in one direction. Her long lashes and ruby red puckered lips give this character her cheeky look and her glossy black curls are depicted by eight spikes, which run along the top of her head.
On the underside of the figurine is the official trademark, namely Hearst Holdings and it is this logo that you need to look for to ensure its' authenticity. Betty stands firmly on her base and does not budge when placed in position. As I have so many Bettys I recently had to purchase another glass display cabinet and this takes pride of place in the front. I was surprised at how eye-catching this figurine actually is, particularly in the electric light, as all of the diamantes sparkle brightly.
Thanks to a Dooyoo member leaving a comment against one of my older reviews I find my figurines extremely easy to clean by way of a small clean paintbrush, which enables me to effectively clean all of the hard to reach areas.
If you are interesting in purchasing this delightful figurine possibly for a Betty Boop fan like me or a soon to be bride I would advise that she is available from all good Betty Boop retailers and can be found on Amazon for £48 plus P+P.
As this is such a gorgeous figurine, she gets 5 stars from me. There's just one question I have after reviewing this figurine and that is who is Mr Boop?
I hope you found my review useful and would thank you for reading.
