The dress is based on the outfit Erica Kane wore during the Crystal Ball, an annual event in All My Children’s storylines. Susan Lucci has been played the role of Erica Kane from January 16, 1970 until September 23, 2011 when it went off the air on ABC. Prospect Park tried to revive the series All My Children on the internet in 2013, but the character Erica Kane did not continue and production ceased after 7 months.
The Susan Lucci celebrity vinyl doll was manufactured in 1998 by Mattel. The doll depicts Susan Lucci as Erica Kane on All My Children, the daytime drama on the ABC television network. Mattel created two dolls based on Erica Kane as part of the company’s Daytime Drama Collection.
