A few nights ago, I came into Wal-Mart right after the MH restock, and nabbed this gal from a hidden stash somebody had made behind the Barbie playsets. Sorry, secret stasher, whoever you are. I've never seen the regular edition Operetta in a store. I found her fashion on clearance a few weeks ago, other people must have been equally unenthusiastic about buying a fashion for a doll that essentially didn't exist yet.
This doll and her fashion theme reminds me of the Beetlejuice cartoon, a childhood favorite. I wish I could send her back in time to myself around 1990.
