*I don't own all of these fashions 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.  If you have any photos or information/corrections to share, I'd love to hear about it!

Other images of Makin' Mischief (generally unproduced/prototypes/promotional figures) Differences from produced fashion (if any)
The photo used in both the first year Jem catalogue poster and the 1986 Hasbro Toy Fair Catalogue (same photo) Rather different from the produced fashion.  Notice the white belt and holographic purple "buckle", the sheerer overskirt and the straight-edged shoes.  The neckline on the pantsuit also dips in the middle, unlike the produced fashion.
1986 German Leaflet (same photo appears in the 1986 Belgium catalogue):also has the white belt and holographic purple "buckle", the sheerer overskirt, but it's missing the socks and has a pair of pale mauve straight edge shoes.  The neckline on the pantsuit also dips in the middle, unlike the produced fashion.
