Last year, I bought Trichelle dressed for the Prom and today, I actually got round to deboxing her.
I don’t know why it’s taken so long for me to do this – I love her. It’s just a shame that she has the “one bent arm” body, but on the plus side, if I can source another Fashionista Nicky I can do a rebody, as, unlike the other SIS girls, they are a good colour match. Here she is with Lea, who has a Nicky body – any excuse to get her on a picture, eh – so you can see how close they are in colour:
Anyway, I love the hair, curly at the bottom like some of the early Trichelle’s that I missed out on. I also really like her bright lip colour. It’s not as striking on photos as it is in the plastic but it really looks great. Trichelle usually has very dark lips, so it’s an interesting change. However, unlike the pivotal version I bought a while back, she is still recognisable.
I haven’t seen any new dolls from the SIS line recently, or heard anything about upcoming waves. Now that Grace is spending time at the Dreamhouse, does this mean the end of the SIS girls? I hope not … Wouldn’t it be nice if Barbie invited them all round so we could see them in the mainstream Barbie lines?
