His first witch was released in 2000. It was sold as a dressed doll but her costume was also sold separately. The outfit was based on the paper doll in the 1999 October-November issue of Mary Engelbreit's Home Companion magazine. Mary has used this outfit in other illustrations, but the paper doll version was the one used to inspire Tonner.
versions of outfits released for 8" Ann Estelle. The original inspiration came from an
illustration in Mary Engelbreit's book "Tiny Teeny Halloweeny Treasury"
published in 2001. I used this illustration myself to create my own version that won a first place ribbon at the 2007 Tonner Doll Convention. My version is on the bottom row.
