    2013 "Couture de Force" Princess and Villain Figures [IMG HEAVY]

    Hello everyone!

    A little collector's update here....
    Not sure if anyone has heard of these yet, but later this year a new series of resin sculpted figures is being released featuring classic princesses and villains. The line is called "Couture de Force" and features characters in elaborate versions of their original costumes. Characters include: Snow White, Queen Grimhilde (Evil Queen), Cinderella, Aurora, Maleficent, Cruella, and Belle. I personally think that the villains actually look better than the princesses in this series, although I love the pastel colorblending and rosettes on Aurora's gown. And surprise surprise, Lady Tremaine was left out again.




    Snow and Belle have the prettiest faces, but I like the look of Aurora's gown best. For the villains, Maleficent is by far my favorite, especially since she's not wicked witch green and I love the details of her cape. Cruella and Grimhilde are also accurate and stunning though.
    As far as I can tell, they are not limited edition, and at $65 each, they're a little pricey.
    What do you guys think? And a lot of people have mentioned how cool it would be if Aurora's dress changed color or was a pink/blue combo... do you like this interpretation of it? What if a similar design were used for a 17" doll?

    Oh wow! Thank you for sharing these! I know there are a few of these that I would absolutely buy, even at that price point!

    For Aurora, I do like the mix of blue and pink... it reminds me of the final image in a Disney storybook anthology that I had when I was a child that did the same thing with her gown to show Flora and Merryweather's color battle. The train of rosettes at the back seem a bit random, and a lot more rococo in style than medieval, but it is pretty. Best of all, her hair is the way it should be! If they did translate this look on Aurora into her 17" LE doll, I would be perfectly happy with that.

    No love for Tremaine. On the bright side, I love Aurora and Maleficent so I may get those 2. Thx for sharing!

    To piggyback onto this thread, here are some more pics showing closeups of their faces. I apologize if the pics appear a bit large, as I am pulling these directly from Enesco's website. They really seem to have caught Queen Grimhilde and Maleficent on "good" days, as they seem almost nice! And the normally jovial Cruella de Vil seems very pensive, as if she we planning her next fur endeavor. I wish they did not mess up the coloration of Cruella's bangs, but I do love the black rose with the faux ruby and red feathers in her hair!

    ...And of course, the lovely princesses! I agree that I think Snow White is the lovliest of them all. At least Cinderella's hair is the more proper dark blonde and she has some silver on her gown. One thing: I wonder why Ariel did not make the cut?

    Not a fan of Aurora's face, but her dress...I need that! And Maleficent and the Evil Queen look incredible.

    I was going to say her face looks a little plump - it should be angular. I like the pink/blue transition look to the dress.

    Snow White and Belle's faces are perfect! But Aurora is my favorite I love her dress! They need to use that as the inspiration for her LE doll's dress it's so gorgeous. I can't decide out of the three villainesses who I like the most I am leaning towards Maleficent but they all look great. I would have loved to have seen Lady Tremaine, Ariel, Ursula and even Rapunzel and Mother Gothel included in this.

    If anyone knows, please tell, I'm also interested in buying two.

    As these aren't LE, how long do you think they'll be around for?

    They don't by any chance sell these in WDW?
    I'm picky about things like this, and would rather see it in person before purchasing, so if they were sold at WDW, I could pick both of mine up in August while I'm there.

    They are made by Enesco, and I think you can look up retailers online. But they don't come out till July, so there's a little time yet
