I got my Felicity for Christmas 2010. She's very pretty, despite being sort of different than I would imagine her. I'm not surprised by the auburn shade of her hair, but I like it more in person than I do in pictures. It's actually a pretty lovely color, even if it isn't the coppery red I imagine when I see the book illustrations. Unfortunately it is a little dry and prone to flyaways. Plus the pincurls make it a little harder to style in anything but the signature ponytail without it looking off. And my particular doll came with one very wonky pincurl. The eyes aren't as frightening in person as the look in pictures, but they're still rather unnatural. I did get used to them though... they don't look strange to me anymore.
I'm not fond of the meet dress, especially on her. The material, as most reviewers have mentioned, feels very synthetic and cheap. I would have preferred cotton. And I think the color clashes with her coloring, so I don't use it on Felicity much. (Interestingly enough, I rather like it on my #26.) I have the rose garden gown as well, and I greatly prefer it.
