I just picked up the new Ida B Wells Barbie doll at Target and it is hands down the best late victorian dress I've seen in 1:6 scale. I was so surprised because I've picked up some costumes from the same series that were not anywhere near the quality. As far as I can tell it's based on a portrait taken of Wells in 1891, so it would be perfect for any kitbasher looking to make a figure from the late 1880s to mid 1890s, or just any old west scene. I'm going to have to give it a good ironing and re-do some sloppy factory stitching, But the skirt alone is far and away the best soft good I've ever bought for Mattel. Not bad for an impulse purchase at Target!

Looks pretty good, good to see mattel is making something of better quality than their usual stuff. I've had some ''collectors'' barbies in my hands that just felt far too cheapish.
