coral and gold gown/dress:  Gold lamé fitted bodice, velcros in back.  Very fine -and frays easily- attached sheer coral skirt with a swirl patterned gold-threaded lace overlay.  The top is trimmed with the same coral chiffon, ruffled.
  • I have seen this lace fabric on a lot of knock-off dolls and clothes, it must have been an "off the rack" fabric, not specifically commissioned by Hasbro.
shoulder wrap: Made of coral chiffon, bunched by gold cord trim, metal snap closure.

hose: More often than not this fashion was sold with white/gold zig-zag tights, like Glitter 'N Gold Jem/Jerrica's.  

bracelet: The same as the one from Glitter 'N Gold Jem/Jerrica, in a much deeper yellow hue.
hairbow: bow-tie shaped coral chiffon attached to a gold elastic.
pumps: Coral scallop-edged pumps.

*I don't own this fashion NRFB so I can't say which, if any posters and inserts originally came with it.  Bold listings are those I have used to create this ID page.  Anything in Italics I haven't actually seen but have good reason to believe exists.  Feel free to contribute more information and/or photos!

Other images of Fire & Ice (generally unproduced/prototypes/promotional figures) Differences from produced doll (if any)
The Second Year package photograph of Fire & Ice (the same photo is used for the 1987 US Hasbro Toy Fair Catalogue, the 1987 France/UK Hasbro Dealer Catalogue, the Second Year Jem Catalogue Poster) -Looks much darker red than the produced fashion is; the bracelet shown is a much thinner/matte-er zig-zag bracelet.
Apparently was worked on a lot, there a few prototype dolls with this dress in different colours. -Blue & Red
-Orange and Green
-Black lace overskirt, but I'm not sure of it's provenance.
Commercials -appears on the Glitter 'N Gold Jem commercial.
Glitter & Gold Illustrated poster makes the fashion appear much redder than it really is.
It did appear on the cartoon. I don't think they included the bracelet but otherwise it's pretty faithfully represented.
