Smith & Retro Girl

April 6, 2018

Thanks to my friend Smith Handerson for adopting Retro Girl.    Retro Girl was owned, used, and donated by Carla Rhodes, who also called this dummy, "Victoria."  This 50 inch dummy was made by Kristin L. Peterson of Oddballs & Orphans in 1997 based on a cartoon character that Rhodes created.  As of the date of donation, this dummy is the only full sized figure produced by Oddballs & Orphans.

 Carla donated Retro Girl to Vent Haven on July 19, 2014 as part of a segment for CBS Sunday Morning.  The show sent correspondent Bill Geist to cover the convention and museum.  You can view the entire segment here.  Tourists can see Retro Girl on display in the main building.
