Other: Integrity Toys collaborated with American Horror Story and Twentieth Century Fox Film Corporation to create the Marie Laveau doll. Made in a limited edition of 600, this portrait doll of Angela Bassett’s Marie Laveau character from the TV series captures Bassett’s likeness almost to perfection. Ms. Bassett’s face extends from the left corner of the box front to the side of the box.  A description of Bassett’s Marie Laveau character is included on the back of the box. In real life, “Marie Laveau is the legendary former Voodoo Queen of New Orleans… Her status in the Voodoo practice is equivalent to that of the Supreme in Witchcraft” (Marie Laveau). “The TV series tells the secret history of witches and witchcraft in America”(American Horror Story).


On April 16, 2020, @integritytoys tweeted the above photo and tweet, “Portrayed by famed actress Angela Bassett, Marie Laveau is the Voodoo Queen in American Horror Story: Coven.”
