Cinderella Dreams Come True by Tonner

I mentioned a while back that I admire the Cinderella sculpt by Robert Tonner for his 16" dolls. A month or so ago, I found one nude on ebay for a price I could afford at the time, so home she came.


She's wearing a white bodysuit that came on a Tonner Basic Daphne doll. Originally, this doll represented Cinderella at the ball, in a blue sparkly and beaded dress, wearing a rhinestone tiara and simple necklace that was a row of rhinestones. However, nude dolls are way less expensive, so unless I'm in totally in love with an outfit, I buy the doll nude where I can. I do have to get cracking on sewing them things, but that's a whole different topic. Her body is the most recent incarnation of Tonner's Tyler Wentworth body. There have been many dolls produced with that body. My Vintage Basic Daphne is similar, except for the changeable feet.



Her finger and toenails are painted the same color, which matches her lips.
Her hairdo is quite elaborate, appropriate for a ball.
A side view
After wanting a Cinderella for so long, I was taken aback to not be totally in love with her face. The best I can describe it is that her lips seem a little... pursed.


Looking at the pictures I took from further away, though, she looks just like the Cinderella that I fell in love with online. I'm hoping she'll grow on me, and if not, I can always resell her. She's definitely staying around for a while, though. She might look different dressed, too.

  6. Hi I am the anonymous above. Do you have a delilah noir doll? Some are Gothic and really cool. You can change their eyes and wigs. Some have poor quality wigs.

    1. Sorry, I don't have a Delilah Noir doll. If I do end up getting a doll type that I can change out the eyes and wigs, Pullips are calling to me at the moment. !
