“ Manufacturer: Fleischer / Type: Collectible Doll „
This is a gorgeous Betty Boop figurine that was mysteriously brought to me by Santa Claus last year and carefully placed underneath our Christmas tree. The figurine is manufactured by Hearst Holdings Inc, the owners of the Betty Boop Trademark and displays their official stamp on its' underside. Santa Betty is considerably heavy at approximately 1 kg and is made from resin and stands at 30 cm high on a 10 cm in diameter black glossy base. Betty Boop always appears somewhat sexy and wears the minimal of clothes in all of the figurines and this piece is no exception. She wears an extremely short red strappy Santa dress with a painted black belt and the resin on the hem of the dress has been designed to resemble that of fur. Her dress is rather revealing as it considerably low cut to flaunt Betty's ample cleavage. She wears a pair of knee-length black high-heeled boots; the cuff of which is again designed to resemble that of fur. Her left arm is bent and her fingers are closed tightly and placed underneath her lips, which gives her a rather mischievous appearance. In her right hand is a pretty white candy cane decorated with bold red stripes. Situated at both sides of her feet are two 2½ cm high perfectly wrapped Christmas presents, one in a white oval shaped box with a huge red bow and the other in a red square box with a yellow bow. Located to the rear of her feet is a further oblong shaped blue boxed present adorned with a huge red bow. Betty is normally wearing multiple items of jewellery, but this figurine shows her wearing just the basics with her pretty glistening green holly shaped dangly earrings. To finish her Christmas outfit, Betty wears a gorgeous red Santa hat with a white fur cuff and a cute bobble on the end. The attention to detail is quite exquisite as both the hat and lower sections of Betty's dress show creases in the resin "fabric". Whilst this figurine has very few features to discuss, it is beautifully made and makes a gorgeous Christmas centrepiece. Fortunately, I was lucky enough to receive this figurine as a Christmas gift, but would advise that you can purchase this pretty collectable from Amazon, where you will be able to see various photographs from all angles, which capture the beauty and workmanship of this stunning piece. If you decide to purchase from Amazon, Santa Betty will cost you £36.98 plus £3.94 and will be despatched to you by Just4ugifts whom I've purchased from on a number of occasions. They are extremely fast in delivering and you will receive your order within just a few days. As this is such a beautiful collectable, it receives 5 out of 5 dooyoo stars from me.
