Click photo to enlargeNow that Gene Marshall is retired, I find I am drawn to the early Ashton Drake dolls. Although they are not articulated, they still have a beautiful, graceful quality about them. At times I am tempted to replace the bodies with the newer articulated Integrity body, but for now I will keep them as is. And Ashton Drake did the best period hairdos! Blue Goddess Gene is my model/muse. I believe Diane designed this suit to coordinate with the hat and purse which are from one of Ashton Drake's hat sets. The necklace is from Ashton Drake, and the bracelet and shoes are from Integrity.
