I knew I had to get this dress the minute I saw it because I am a bit obsessed with angels - so the AG/angel combination was a must!
Dress - The fabric is very sparkly and I love the sleeves. The gathering makes them look slightly vintage or even medieval, which reminds me of the "classic" image of angels that evolved through paintings. The fabric is just downright weird. It looks nice from a distance but I was slightly disappointed AG would use a terry fabric for a costume, especially one that is supposed to be a fancy dress. Unless it's supposed to look like the doll made it out of (albeit sparkly) towels, I thought it made the outfit look... cheap? Not planned out? Project Runway project gone wrong? The fabric is very soft though and I thought it would at least be comfortable. The wings were made out of a surprisingly durable material. I was hoping they wouldn't be connected to the dress simply for storage purposes (and of course, mix and match!), but I really like them and was surprised. I'll give the dress a solid B- because I think the dress looks pretty, love the wings, but am weirded out by the fabric choice.
Shoes - I don't get the shoes because if you are going trick-or-treating (for a Halloween costume) or performing in a Christmas play, you need shoes you could actually walk around in and get dirty - not these all-white slippers! Still, they feel like they would be very comfortable, fit well and stay on the doll's feet. Grade: B
Headband - Made of sheer sparkly white ribbon. I like the bows coming down off the side. It fits around the doll's head perfectly though if you want your doll to wear it as a "halo" it's a bit hard to put on without messing up her hair (and looks weird over bangs), and honestly I would've liked one of those cheap costume halos just for the kitsch factor. It also looks great worn as a normal headband. IMO this is the most detailed part of the outfit, and my favorite part. Grade: A-
