The Industry Collection. Tulabelle Dressed Doll. Limited Edition 500 Worldwide.
As a writer, fashion influencer, muse, granddaughter of a fashion legend and in-demand "it girl" at events, Tulabelle was just assigned to write about the new bad boy of fashion and she was dressed to impress. After an hour of serious debate, she decided that she was in a glam rock mood today. On went the vintage 70s gaucho pants, new designer platform boots, sheer chiffon blouse and her favorite crazy black and white striped "fur" trimmed coat. A silver clutch, studded bracelets and her thunderbolt earrings complete the vibe. "There! Glam Rock chic with a subtle edge; I'm ready to take him on now!".
Tulabelle™ is a fully articulated 12-inch doll with fully rooted hair and hand applied eyelashes. For adult collectors ages 15 and up only. This doll cannot stand alone; a doll stand is included.

This new body can be completely disassembled and has interchangeable hands. This really useful feature offers great possibilities when dressing dolls in tight, form-fitting clothes and helps eliminate unnecessary closures that add bulk to scaled clothing whenever possible. Also, this new body features a more versatile foot sculpt that will allow the dolls to easily share shoes with other brands of dolls on the market! Talk about awesome versatility! Also, THE INDUSTRY marks the introduction of a brand new packaging style designed by our very own Alain Tremblay that includes a portrait picture of the doll with each new release!
Please note: As a design choice (not a budgetary decision), we have chosen to use a very fine, micro-velcro closure on the front placket of Tulabelle's shirt. The fabric is very sheer and we did not want to have a visual distraction with the use of hooks and loops, so the decision was made to use velcro. We wanted to make our customers aware of this choice. I hope that you will love the great attention to detail that was incorporated into this doll; we worked hard to make her as visually stunning and versatile as we could! The doll pictured in this release is a prototype. Final fabrics, colors and textures may vary slightly.
THE INDUSTRY COLLECTION
Q. What is the actual size of THE INDUSTRY body?
A. From the very top of the head to the toe, the body is almost 12 1/4" tall. The body is slightly shorter than current NU. Face but taller than Poppy Parker.
Q. Is THE INDUSTRY body all brand new or does it use any existing parts?
A. THE INDUSTRY body is a completely new body sculpt, except for the hands. The arms, legs, torso, and bust are all new sculpts. THE INDUSTRY shares Poppy's hands.
Q. Is the foot the same as the Dynamite Girl foot?
A. No, it's a new more delicate, detailed foot with a slightly different arch, but it's within the same size as the Dynamite Girl foot. The new foot allows her to share shoes with other fashion dolls currently on the market.
Q. What is the bust size of THE INDUSTRY body?
A. The bust size is similar to the current NU. Face bust size.
Q. Are there any other things to note about THE INDUSTRY body?
A. Yes! The bottom leg is removable and in the future, you will see some of THE INDUSTRY dolls will have a brand new articulated ankle and foot. This will enable us to have some dolls with flat feet and others to have a high heel foot in the same collections!
Q. Why were existing jewelry pieces used on Tulabelle?
A. I wanted to use the studded cuffs to give it a bit more of a rock 'n roll vibe. The lightning bolt earrings first debuted on the 16" Tulabelle and I wanted to use them on the 12" version. It's as simple as that. There will be new jewelry pieces on the upcoming dolls in the collection, along with lots of fun accessories similar to what was seen today in the Poppy Parker collection. So, stay tuned!
