"The auction concept was pure genius. Gene in shades of gray, so that she would appear as a 3-D image from a Black & White movie. It was a challenge for the designers to make an outfit for a doll they had never seen. (They got the doll to dress when they got there.) They did the designs at home, using their own dolls as mannequins.) It was hard not knowing just how gray they would be. Would their hair be white-white or an off white shade?Needless to say, they did an outstanding job!" Wayne Nilson
