A Tango gift set was released some years ago and the Barbie doll dancing with her dark and handsome Ken was biting a rose. The rose literally sat inside her face. Her brand new face. She gave the sculpt the name, Tango - or as it may be referred to "New Hispanic". Silly with the "new" part. She has a narrow face with a closed mouth. The narrow part is also up for debate since this head changes a lot between the different dolls.  Compare Tango to Cinco de Mayo below. Cinco has a triangular face, while Tango's is elongated.

I have always thought this girl looks like Donna from Beverly Hills. She could be her sister - or long lost cousin. The Fashion Fever series had a lot of new carachters. Some unique and some revolving. Shannen is the only one by that name. And with this face.

Ashlyn is a dark skinned girl, and still one of the 12 sisters (is she adopted?). This doll was also made with a lighter complexion but she is almost impossible to find. I so badly want one!

nn Maiden

A lot of dolls of late never gets a name and this girl is one of them. There were three maidens from the DVD adventure of Barbie as the Island Princess. A blonde dressed in purple, a dark haired girl in a blue dress and a slightly colored girl in a pink gown - this girl. They all had the ugly hobbit body type that so many dolls of 2005/06 sadly was produced with. I have since this shot was taken, given her a new body (stolen from a My Scene girl) and she now leads a funnier life as a pretty model.

Queen of Hearts

A very special doll indeed. With a slanted glance and black hair, the Queen of Hearts stands out among her Tango sisters. She is a gorgeous doll!

Twilight Victoria also got this face. Should you by any chance find her rerooted and repainted you'd still recognize her due to her light skin tone. She is a vampire and has a white skintone. She is a very pretty girl with her red locks (but my doll suffers from glue in the head and has grown to take on a filthy and greasy look from the glue melting - NASTY business!).
