So, the deed is done – I ordered her online on Monday and she arrived today.
I don’t really like writing blog posts that basically consist of “hey, look what I bought”, but at times like this it becomes pretty much unavoidable. She’s just beautifully done – the orange eyes, the purple and red darts in her velvet and pleather dress, and THAT hairstyle.
I haven’t been able to test her articulation because she’s pretty firmly tied into position in her box and I haven’t taken her out yet. Should I do it? As I’ve said before, I nearly always de-box dolls, but she really does look great in there and I don’t often display my dolls either (they usually get packed away in plastic in the doll drawers – writing a blog is really my method of displaying them).
I’m still undecided about whether to carry on buying from this line. On the one hand, its not all that long to Christmas and I really can’t afford it. Then again, they are beautifully made and relatively cheap when you take into account their limited run … damn you, Disney (and bless you, too) 🙂
