Gene Fashion Doll Ashton-Drake Mel Odom CUSTOM GENE IN ROARING 20'S COSTUME
CUSTOM GENE IN THE ROARING 20'S! She poses so well for the camera! Gene is a collectible fashion doll inspired by the Golden Age of Hollywood. Created by Mel Odom she debuted in 1995 and was one of the first large fashion dolls targeted toward adult collectors. The Gene line was produced by Ashton Drake from 1995 - 2005, then by others with modifications. Made of hard plastic (ABS) body with a porcelain-like finish and vinyl head with rooted hair, the Gene doll stands 15 1/2 tall, has painted eyes and applied eyelashes. The first dolls had joints at the neck, shoulders, and hips. Later dolls added jointing at the knee, elbow, waist, and wrist for better pose-ability.
Fashions for Gene exemplify the wardrobe of a Hollywood film star; glamorous film costumes, lingerie, day and evening wear of the mid 20th century. Friends of Gene Marshall include Madra Lord, Trent Osborn and Violet Waters. These are photos of the actual models you will receive, so look closely at all of them to make up your own mind about condition.
Most are new or even never removed from box, but a few look like they have been taken out of the box to dress with the accessories. If I can see any obvious problems or missing parts, I will include close-up photos. Most items that I sell are used or pre-owned. I do not smoke, but can't guarantee the previous owners didn't.
