I played with the Boden Outfit Maker tonight for awhile. It's a pretty compelling bit of software, if you are extremely fond of Boden clothes to begin with.
I decided this dolly's woman's name is Julie. Sadly, as you can see clearly from the following photo, Julie only has one hip.
Having grown up dressing a Barbie whose legs bent backwards at the knees and whose head was prone to falling off if she whipped around the corner too quickly in her camper van, I wasn't fazed one bit by Julie's one-hippedness.
That's what cute jackets are for, anyway ... to cover up your missing hip.
Julie's early fashion influences include the French navy ...
... and Paddington Bear.
Also, LeSueur Baby Peas ...
... and Grape Hubba-Bubba.
She has a boyfriend named Ian McIan, and they hang out on the weekends. This is Julie's "I'm going on a picnic with Ian McIan" outfit.
And this is her "I'm going to the cinema with Ian McIan" outfit.
There is a lot that Ian McIan still doesn't know about Julie. He thinks she is a mild-mannered, one-hipped secretary.
But actually, Julie is an undercover spy.
When they meet for dinner after work one night, Ian McIan assumes Julie's clutch purse is holding some Kleenex and a lipstick. Actually, it contains some microfilm and a coded note that she must slip, undetected, to another spy sitting at the table next to them.
When Ian looks down at the dessert menu, Julie makes her move. She slips the microfilm and note to the other spy, and Ian does not see her.
Unfortunately, in the process, Julie spills a large glass of blueberry juice down the front of her dress, and must go change into another outfit. Luckily, she has one in the trunk of her car.
Yes! By a strange coincidence, Ian McIan is also, himself, a spy!
Neither suspects the other. And it goes on that way for quite some time, until one day Ian realizes that Julie spends way too much money on clothes to be working merely as a mild-mannered secretary. In a flash of spylike intuition, he realizes she is the famed "Agent Eiluj" he has heard so much about. She, in turn, gasps with the sudden understanding that he is THAT Ian McIan, the famed secret agent.
Well, they are so relieved and happy to find out that the other is also a spy, that they get married and live happily ever after, and they both smile all the time, and Julie buys some more cute clothes, to celebrate.
All in all, I'd say the Boden Outfit Maker is really cool. My only criticism is that I wish it had more accessories. Like maybe a Corvette, or a Dream House.
