IRL images of the 2016 Black Dress Silsktone Barbie doll

January 15, 2016

First of all, I wonder if Mattel will ask me to take these images down. :)) Last week they were pissed that I published some images from Amazon and they started questioning me HOW I managed to get my hands on them. When I showed them the very public Amazon links, they didn’t reply. Duh!

Anyway, DollGenie has had the Black Dress Silsktone Barbie doll in stock (she’s sold out now) and here are IRL images of her.

Even if I don’t like the fact that yet again the doll has no jewelry, I do like this doll. Simple, elegant, clean. She has a beautiful eyemakeup and her updo reminds me of the #1 Barbie doll. I can’t wait to see how she poses, if the new material is sturdy or if it will break.

Welcome to the dolly world, articulated Silkies!

    Just a heads up- there is a review of this doll on you tube that I would watch for anyone who is going to buy this doll- it’s eye opening how poor the quality is on these dolls- the joints, the rough and ugly seams just to name a few- and all for $15 more than the basic silk stones. The review is very thorough – he even shows you the doll nude and problem areas hidden by the simple dress. Just heads up before anyone buys this doll . Good luck ?

    I am already cringing over the black ribbons they used to hold the doll into the box. That is just asking for stains in ugly places. It’s amazing how quickly a doll can stain. I bought Reigning Grace Eugenia from Integrity and even though she is a new doll, she was already stained from her dress. I wonder if the material silkstones are made of are more resistant to staining?
