|Tonner's Wonder Woman 52 wearing a Franklin Mint Marilyn Monroe outfit.|
I also got an FM Princess Diana dress at the same time. ... I wish I hadn't. I'd left Marilyn in a doll trunk with all those clothes, and for years she sat in my closet untouched in the trunk. When I opened her up, I discovered stains all over her from the dark blue velvet Princess Diana dress, and from one of her own dresses. Yes, I was stupid enough to leave her in her famous gold lame dress all that time. (Sorry, I don't know how to do accent symbols over the "e" for the word "lame" in this program.) Ack!
Franklin Mint clothes stain like crazy. She wasn't even WEARING the blue Diana dress. It had merely pressed up against her shoulder while she was stuck in the trunk, and now her shoulder is blue. Sigh. Her gold lame dress left marks ALL OVER her, even on her shoulders and around her neck. I'm attempting to treat Marilyn with Twin Pines of Maine's "Remove-Zit" now. I saved an Antoinette with blue feet with it once, so hopefully it'll work on Mary.
Above is the dark blue velvet Princess Diana gown. It's too bad it stains so badly, because it's an absolutely beautiful dress. Ya better believe I stripped it off Mera right after I took this picture! (And don't you love Franklin Mint jewelry? That necklace is amazing!)
I'm so glad I kept these clothes all these years, though, because I just discovered they are a PERFECT fit for the 16" Tonner Heroic body. Seriously perfect. I wanted to show you pictures of my Mera and Wonder Woman wearing them, because they're absolutely fabulous. I just won't ever trap them in a trunk with the clothes like I did to poor Marilyn. And they aren't allowed to wear any of the dark clothes for more than three seconds at a time. LOL! The evil blue velvet Diana dress is now sealed in a plastic bag so it can't hurt anyone ever again.
The outfit with the red jacket over the white blouse, and black skirt (above) is not Franklin Mint. That's actually a Tonner outfit made for HIS version of Marilyn Monroe, called "The Problem With Rose." It fits the Heroic body nicely, although I did have to tug a bit to get that jacket snapped over those giant bosums. Tonner's Marilyn has a slightly smaller bust than the FM version, but apparently a similar waist and hip size.
Here's "The Problem With Rose" on Wonder Woman 52. It looks like it was made for her! The shoes don't quite fit right, though. Mera here is dressed in a Tyler outfit. I've found a lot of Tyler skirts fit the Heroic body, but the skirt from this outfit was too tight and won't snap in the back. Regular Tyler pants won't fit over the bodacious Heroic butt.

|I just realized I have a LOT of red doll clothes.|
My poor, stained Marilyn seemed happy about getting some face time after being stuck inside a trunk for the past 10 years. I couldn't leave this post without showing at least ONE picture of her, after those other bitches stole all her clothes. LOL!
