Do any of you own the Axtell "Leggy" Diva? I saw her at the ConVENTion briefly and then she was SOLD. I came home and ordered one online to take advantage of the 20% discount. They come without clothes and as far as I can tell Axtell does not sell clothes for her. The rule of thumb is 4T, but she has a molded sitting lower body and will need a low-cut type of top. I was wondering if anyone had purchased one and how they dressed her? Thanks in advance. Margaret

There were a few clothes dealers at the convention look at your program they were dealer room A Merchant's Hall, opposite Chaucer's Restaurant. At this time can't remember her name, but......go to any good will store or thrift store and they could save you a hill of dollars....If you want to dress them in costume go to a costume store and they can fit your vent figure if you want to spend the dollars... good luck

Target stores often have some nice girls' outfits. I would also assume that two tank tops would look nice. One white and a little higher on the chest and the other a different color and a little lower. Many wear that style.

NJ,

Thanks, Maybe my question wasn't clear. I'd know how/where to get clothes for her (if she was a regular vent figure). But I was wondering if anyone else have the "leggy" Diva, she is molded latex sitting, so regular size 4T clothes probably wont fit correctly. Take a look at the photo's, Patick Wan and Terry Fator use this figure. I'm thinking they had to have an outfit made for her and probably sew on to her??

But, I appreciate you trying to help.

I would Imagine that the likes of Terry Fator would have someone taylor make those clothes. I know the Vent Figure you refer to...It might do you good to go to your local large size costume outfit store and ask if they can fit her, I have found one in my area. I have a Detweiler whom I brought in to have a suit made for a festive party. You can do the same for any Axtell Figure as well. Or go to AX's link page and scroll down, there might be something there that can help. Thrift stores, if they are good will sell you outfits reasonable and even taylor them to fit. Good Luck

When you order the Diva with the legs... we include the dress. We made the dress Terry Fator's Vickki wears too.

Steve,

Thanks! Clothes come with Diva, which is a relief! On the website it says the Diva comes without clothes (must be for the older version of Diva). I cannot wait to get her, I appreciate it so much!

p.s. Gary did an awesome job manning the booth and talking to customers at the ConVENTion, he was BUSY! People were standing in line to talk to him about the products. I walked away and when I came back the DIVA was gone

So I came home and ordered her. I appreciate all the help you are to us out here! And also how approachable you are via email, which is fantastic.

Margaret

The leggy body requires custom clothing, so it's included in the price. Nothing would ever fit it, but the Diva without legs can wear regular kids clothes. Ax

Dear all,

I just bought a second hand Leggy Diva, which come with the red dress.
But unfortunatelly the dress is loose from the glue in some spots at the bare shoulder area.

What kind of glue should I use? It seem like Axtell use a clear glue such as hot melted glue or UHU (brand). I'm sure it is not a yellow contact cement. Or should I use rubber cement?

And I don't want to ruin her beautifull latex shoulder and her dress too.

Thanks in advance!

Regards,
