Tonner Added to Doll Section

This was long overdue but I finally got around to creating a page in my doll section for the Tonner dolls.

Shipboard Wedding by Tonner Dolls

I've been drooling over this doll for awhile and finally took the plunge and picked one up.  The stock photo just does not do her justice.  Totally gorgeous in person.  It is so wonderful that Tonner has been focusing on lesser known outfits like this amazing wedding dress from Gentlemen Prefer Blondes.

The details from the jewelry to flowers and right down to the wonderful shoes is spot on.  Of course, the tonner face is still the tonner face and is not the greatest likeness of Marilyn.  I still prefer the Franklin Mint faces.  However, the wedding doll is an improvement over the basic Pola doll that I have.     The face on this one has eyelashes and a different paint job which helps the look of it.

I haven't been able to take my eyes off this doll since I got her - just beautiful to look at.  Highly recommended.

Available from the tonner website.

Marilyn Movie Night at Museum

I have some very exciting news - my Marilyn collection is going to be featured at our local Museum starting in September!  I'll post more details when the dates are confirmed.  Maybe some of you MarilynGeeks who live in Ontario will want to stop by and see it. 

As part of the opening celebration the Museum is thinking of hosting a Marilyn movie night - with the film of my choice.  I've narrowed it down to Gentlemen Prefer Blondes or Some Like it Hot.  I am interested to know what you guys think would be the better option.  Which film would have a broader appeal and would draw more people (non-fans and fans alike) to attend?  Please use the below link to vote....
