Faux pearls, sequins and lace also cover the lower half of the gown and bodice, faux pearls and lace at her thro at, wrapped around the large satin bow at the back waist line and strings of faux pears in her hair. White ribbon gathers her tulle veil at the top of her head. The chapel length veil has a fine wire at the bottom to assist in the posing of the doll. The very upper part of the bodice is a see-through stocking net type fabric.
She is wearing a tulle lace and faux-pearl trimmed underskirt, a fine net lace trimmed underskirt, a tiered lace trimmed petticoat in the back to help make her train lay properly, and white high heeled shoes. She has a porcelain head , arms, and legs; long blond curly hair, and blue eyes. "Melody" comes with COA, a bouquet of tulips, a stand with a satin and braid cover round base; and instructions "How to unpack and display your "Melody" doll". The beauty of this doll and her wedding gown is difficult to describe. The edition of "Melody" 6492A ended forever in 2000, at which time molds for this doll were broken, and no more porcelain will ever be cast.
