I think Elizabeth is stunning. I love her hair (but am too chicken yet to take it out of the original style, though that will happen and the pincurls will probably meet with extinction by hairbrush too) and everything about her. I opened her box with not a little trepidation after reading some members accounts of receiving less than perfect dolls recently, but she is just perfect, beautiful... and no green ear either. I will coat her earrings as AGR mentions, and hopefully avoid future trouble though. Thanks for that tip!
I've noticed she stands better/has better balance than some of my other AGs and her arms have a greater range of movement (and stay put) better. I don't much like her meet dress although the soft lace is pretty. It can be a 'princess' dress for dolly dress-ups.
I don't like that her shift has velcro... shouldn't it be drawstring/elastic at the neck like Felicity's? The only other thing I can think of to add to what has already been noted about her meet outfit, is that she has stockings but no garters! Neither shift nor garter-less stockings particularly matter to me, since my Elizabeth is to be a modern girl but I thought it worth mentioning.
A-to-the-power-of-some-ginormous-number. I wasn't happy that they deviated from the book either, but it has to be said, Mattel has made one utterly gorgeous doll.
