Here's a gorgeous gal that's very hard to find, vintage Supersize Christie! This 18 tall Barbie friend is made with the superstar style of head mold and arms, and since Christie is African American, she has a beautiful mocha complexion with hazel eyes. Her dark hair has lots of gold highlights and streaks, and she bears more than a passing resemblance to Beyonce! Since Christie came first, I'm afraid Beyonce stole her look (I hope Beyonce doesn't sue me:) For creative people, this size doll is easy to sew for. As the photos show, this doll has not ever been removed from the box, only the doll fastened to the liner was slid out for the best photo.
The box shows a lot of storage wear and age. There is a crush at the top left corner of the box, and tape residue at the top of the window over the top of Christie's head. Christie's original outfit that she is wearing has faded; it was originally turquoise satin on the sides of the skirt, but now the fabric has faded to light blue.However, her extra pair of satin pants fastened to the side of the box liner is still turquoise and unfaded. All the accessories are present, including plastic punch out pieces for Christie's jewelry and little girl size jewelry, direction sheet, extra pair of satin pants, pair of turquoise squishy heel shoes, and doll stand. There is an extra piece of zip tie plastic in the box, but I'm not sure where it might go.
