In her former life this doll was known as Wendy Ann, made in the 1930’s and 1940’s by Madame Alexander. The Wendy Ann doll, named after Madame’s daughter, was used for many different characters including Scarlet O’Hara, Rebeca, Sleeping Beauty and many others. The most sought after of these dolls are those from the Portrait series. They featured extra dramatic make-up and beautiful clothing. They are difficult to find and highly prized by the Alexander collector.
In keeping with the style of the Portrait dolls, this 21” Wendy Ann has been transformed to portray a modern day starlet in a classic fairy tale film. She has taken on the role of Charlize Theron as Queen Ravenna from “Snow White and the Huntsman” A 2012 American dark fantasy film based on the German fairy tale "Snow White" compiled by the Brothers Grimm. In the film's retelling of the tale, Snow White grows up imprisoned by her evil stepmother, Queen Ravenna a powerful sorceress. As in the original tale Ravenna tempts Snow White into eating a poisoned apple.
At All Dolled Up Again it is our mission to preserve vintage dolls and their history for the next generation of collectors. While it is always ideal to maintain them in their original condition and clothing it is not always possible. So we have taken dolls that may otherwise be cast aside, giving them a second life with a new identity and a glamorous makeover. With more than 20 years of experience collecting, repairing, buying and selling vintage and antique dolls we are able to achieve this goal while maintaining the vintage quality of the doll.
Researching each dolls original history begins the creative process and will most often be the inspiration for their new persona. Studying the new identity allows us to add detail and provide a historical reference. We start with dolls that are still in good structural condition, cleaning and repairs will be done as need. Then they get a fabulous makeover with hand painted details. Their costumes are created from vintage and antique clothing, fabrics and accessories. We make every effort to stay true to the time period of each doll, however some new elements may be added as needed. While they have been given a new life, these are still Vintage & Antique dolls and may have minor imperfections as expected of dolls 50 to 100 years old. These imperfection and nuances only add to the dolls individuality and nostalgic charm. Each doll is a one of a kind creation that cannot be duplicated.
