I ordered my #41 with the code last weekend (9/19) and she arrived a few days ago (9/23).
She is a gorgeous girl! The hair/eye color combination is beautiful, and truly unique thus far in the AG line. She's closest to Ruthie, but there are a number of differences between them. I think she'd work well as a stand-in for Ruthie; I'd love to see her in Kit or Molly's clothes (I have their stuff, but in storage). She looks good in just about anything I've tried on her.
Her wig is nice and thick. The curls are manageable; I do not have a hair pick, and smoothing/arranging her curls with my fingers seems to be working just fine.
It hits right about shoulder-blade length (if she had shoulder-blades).
The color is dark brown, close to black. It's definitely darker than Chrissa's. It's close to Jess's, but it lacks the reddish highlights hers has.
Chrissa on the left, Jess on the right:
I pulled #41's hair back in a loose ponytail and loose pigtails, and no wigcap shows through.
LOVE these new green eyes! At last, AG has chucked the neon color they were trying to pass off as green!
They are a sap green color - a deep (but not dark), intense green.
They look stunning with her coloring. As for realism: I have yet to meet a person with this color green eyes - typically they are lighter or have a lot more brown or gold tones - but again, these are a LOT more realistic than the old neon green AG was using.
Overall, one of the most beautiful dolls in my collection. I am very happy I got her! If you're unsure about getting her because she's online-only, my advice is go for it! She's a sweetheart.
