Rebecca came home with me today from the AG Natick store. She is gorgeous! Her eyes and hair make her such a unique looking doll. I love her and can't stop staring at her.
I asked if her eyes were the same as Mia's and they told me that Rebecca's are different, that they're "a true hazel". I'll have to take comparison pictures later. Her meet outfit seemed a bit crumpled and untidy until I figured out it wasn't pulled down as straight as it would go. It looks really lovely on her. It's a rich shade of red and is a quality product. Her boots look much nicer with the dress in person than they do in photos.
Alas, dear Rebecca does not come without flaws. Her barrette is as cheaply made as they come. I'm wondering why they even bothered giving her a barrette if they were planning to do such a poor job with it. While I was at the store, I noticed that almost every little girl carrying around their new Rebecca doll was on the verge of losing her littlebarrette~ it was slipping out of Rebecca's hair and just barely hanging on.
My biggest disappointment is with her hair. While it is her best feature aesthetically speaking, it becomes one of her biggest flaws do to an incredibly thin wig cap. As in, you can see her wig cap in spots even while she's just standing there looking pretty. What she does have is an abundant amount of curls. I'm wondering if people will have similar problems with Rebecca as they did with Nicki's curls. I'm going to try to take more pictures of her wig cap and I'll post them at a later time.
All in all, I give Rebecca an A for uniqueness and beauty, nice meet outfit, adorable accessories, and for her story. But I have to knock off huge points for the thin wig.
