Amanda Lepore is being made into a doll thanks to Jason Wu of Integrity Toys, the man behind the RuPaul, Gastineau Girls and Fashion Royalty fashion dolls. The doll is made out of a new "RealSkin" material which is 5 times heavier than a normal vinyl doll. There will be 3 dolls made (less than 100 of each) "Couture Baby" (the black outfit in the photo), Trannytale (middle sketch) and "Look Better Naked by David Barton". Many collaborators participated in this project including NARS Cosmetics (Makeup), Les Christophs (Scent, yes she will be scented) and David LaChapelle (Photography).
Net proceeds of the doll, which retails for $199.00 will go to the Design Industry Foundation Fight AIDS (DIFFA) charity. The doll will be available at an invitation-only even to be held at JEFFREY New York this April.
Flaunt Magazine, the project's official media sponsor, will be running an exclusive feature on the doll in it's April issue.
