Greetings all, I have always been a fan of science fiction. Among the many films that were released during the 1980’s was a film called Buck Roger’s in the 25th Century. For the time, the costumes used in this film were not as amazing as the newer Star Wars costumes worn by Natalie Portman. However, Princess Ardala’s outfit has been one of my favorite for many years. Perhaps because, unlike Star Wars, The princess in Buck Rogers was about being a woman with power and still wanting to be beautiful and sexy. When I started to think about doll ideas that I would love to see Marina create, I thought of the costume first most importantly. The rest came to me from a childhood appreciation for her outfit. Of course, I am not saying to copy this exactly, but something similar. This head piece has been seen in other films, so its not dedicated to her outfit. I think the white fur and white beaded lace would go beautifully with the porcelain skin tone of the doll also. A flowing cape with a big collar adds to her strength as well. Either way, I love all her creations. The newest "Surviving" is such a powerful doll and I can personally relate to it.

Thank you for your time.
