Le Smoking Adele Makeda

The latest doll to join my collection is the 2014 Fashion Royalty Gloss Convention Le Smoking Adele Makeda.

I had been wanting an Adele with this face sculpt for years, and when I saw this doll, I knew that she would be the one.

She is wearing an ivory satin pant suit. She comes with gold earrings, a gold watch, a pair of gold high-heeled shoes, a white fur stole, and an extra set of hands. Her long black hair is pulled back into a thick ponytail. She has rooted lashes. She can stand without assistance in her shoes.

Here's a look at her articulation. She is jointed at the wrists, elbows, and knees. Her torso has two points of articulation, and she can both bend and rotate. Her legs rotate slightly at the hip. Her hands are fairly easy to remove, which is quite convenient when removing her clothing and redressing her.

Adele is tall. She towers over most of the 1/6 scale male dolls and action figures in my collection. In her heels, she is nearly as tall as Darius Reid, who has shown immediate interest in her.

She can cross her legs at the ankle when seated.

I think that she and Darius are going to have a relationship. I suspect that things will go better for Darius with this Adele than they did with the previous Adele.

Adele has made other friends here as well, and she is quite happy that there are music lovers such as herself here. Pictured in the photo below from left to right are Adele (#1), Janay (#1), RuPaul, Janay (#2), and Adele (#2).

These Integrity Toys/Fashion Royalty ladies take a few moments to jam. They are in a festive holiday spirit.


Overall, I am thrilled with this doll. She is beautiful, I am pleased with her articulation. I love it that she has an extra set of hands and that she can grasp and hold objects. I love it that she can stand and pose in her shoes, but I would love it if she could stand without shoes/wear various heel heights.
