Melody Dressed in Outfits from Other Time Periods

Ahhhhh... I actually had these photos taken a month ago but just haven't had time to edit and post them til now. But without further delay, here is the Dress Up Gallery for the 1960s Beforever Melody Ellison! I put her in over 200 outfits from various time periods to see if I could get a better feel for her looks, and took photos of her in them. Here are the photos for anyone who is curious what "Melody looks like in _______ clothes."

*Do not repost or copy images without written permission.*


*Note: I did not take any photos of Melody in Kaya's outfits due to the deeply religious and personal aspect of her Native American Pow Wow wear. I am not comfortable with having Melody try on Kaya's clothing in a "dress up" sort of manner since she does not represent a Native American character in my mind, specifically Nez Perce.

Which time period/outfit do you think she looks best in? ^_^

While we wait for the next new doll to come out, I will be working on getting Dress Up Galleries for my current dolls, starting with the Girl of the Year dolls I have. It might take me some time to get them done (3rd year of medical school has me working in the hospitals 12 hours a day). Thank you for your patience! ^_^

  1. I think Melody looks great in the 70s clothes! And lots of others, but I really liked her in all of Julie and Ivy's stuff even though I'm not typically a fan of their collection.

  3. My daughter and I love her in all of Emily's clothes, all of Grace's, and Lea's meet dress. This MAY have changed my mind about getting her.

  4. I love Melody so, so much. She's such a cutie (both the doll and book character).

    I actually loved her in the Colonial attire most! Julie and Ivy's wear second. So cute! : )

  5. Julie's collection was my top choice. I normally prefer her original outfits, but Melody looks great in the Beforever colours.

  6. Melody is so much more versatile than I imagined. There are at least one or two outfits from every collection (often six or seven) that look like they were made for her! Thank you so much Lilly for doing these dress up galleries. They are really helpful.

  7. Loved the pictures! It must have taken a few days to do. Thanks for taking time to do this. Like another posted said, some of the outfits looked like they were made for her. I really liked her in Samantha's old collection and Josefina's collection. She also looked great in many of the GOTY outfits. She especially looked nice in Nicki's gala dress, Mia's practice outfit, Lanie's nature and butterfly outfits and Grace's city outfit. What fun!

  9. I really appreciate the time and effort you have put into this! Thank you for sharing the fruits of your labor with us! It's so much fun to see Melody in all of these outfits. She is such a cute doll and looks darling in most of the outfits. She sure looks great in Kit's though! I forgot how many colors and styles Kit and Ruth have had in their wardrobe selection. You have saved us a lot of work trying to figure out what looks best on Melody...thank you!!
