Kaolipedia – Discovering the Doll Universe: E Like Ellowyne (Wilde)…
Hello there my dearly beloved Kaoliberry fans!
Well, how have you all been doing? Here in my sunny island, it’s been raining a lot! Good thing, there’s more of that warm feeling which finding awesome stuff in the doll world brings me so I can easily warm up to some comforting thoughts by the time I hit the sack!
Well, as you know, it’s just about time to bring you yet another interesting addition to our quirky yet very informative encyclopedia of the doll world, the Kaolipedia! I was inspired by the lonely and gloomy rainy weather here in my island right now, so to tune in with the season, I give you the melancholy ELLOWYNE WILDE.
Ellowyne Wilde is one of the best dolls by Wilde Imagination. She was designed and created by renowned doll artist and designer, Robert Tonner and Joe Petrollese (who also designs gorgeous outfits for Ellowyne and other accessories.)
Ellowyne Wilde stands 16-inches tall, just the right height for a collectible doll like her. Ellowyne has 12 points of articulation which also makes her perfect for posing. She is made of hard plastic and high quality vinyl material, has a slightly large head (similar to those of Bratz Dolls) and hand-painted facial features. Ellowyne’s most striking features are her eyes which are beautifully crafted to express a bored and melancholy look.
Ellowyne is characterized as a very bored girl, tired with life and maybe a little lonely. She is said to be suffering from chronic “ennui” (pronounced as ‘on-we’) which means “weariness and dissatisfaction”. So it goes without saying that Ellowyne has regular sessions with a shrink (named Dr. Bantam). But despite all these, Ellowyne is a “fashion diva” who likes to wear exquisite clothing designed by the remarkable Petrollese himself. Ellowyne’s outfits vary from simple to extravagant, depending on the occasion but they are always made of high-grade fabric and beautiful material, something Tonner Dolls are known for. She sometimes wears different colored wigs and eyes.
Other dolls in the Ellowyne Wilde collection include Prudence, Lizette and Rufus. Prudence (sometimes called “Pru”) is Ellowyne’s best friend. Contrary to Ellowyne’s very bored and melancholy character, Pru is upbeat, bubbly and loves to dance. Meanwhile, Lizette is the new Southern girl in town. She has brown eyes and is very charming and she becomes Ellowyne’s friend. Rufus, on the other hand, is probably the only male character in the collection. He is cheerful yet shy. He has known Ellowyne since seventh grade and as secretly loved her ever since. These characters lives revolve around each other and are fondly told via journal/blog entries in Wild Imagination’s website. Oh and there is Amber too!
All in all, Ellowyne Wilde is a good deal for doll collectors. She is cute and has a personality and a mood which makes her great for pre-teen ages as well as adults. The outfits made for the Ellowyne doll are of exquisite designs and or high-quality, making them well worth the price. If you are an avid doll collector, you may want to add Ellowyne to your collection and give it a splash of personality!
The basic Ellowyne Wilde doll is priced at around $69.00 to a hundred but dressed dolls may cost you a few hundred dollars more. Everything about Ellowyne can be bought at their online store, www.wildeimagination.com, including clothing, accessories and many more.
