*This meet outfit was worn by Elizabeth in the book Very Funny Elizabeth! and in the DVD Felicity: An American Girl Adventure*
I just thought I'd post this in case someone is on the fence about Elizabeth, though I know she isn't so popular because of the way AG changed her.
Elizabeth doll $87.00 XDP (doll with paperback book)
Overall rating: A
Elizabeth is a gorgeous doll, IMO. Her eyes, face coloring, hair, and clothes are very beautiful, though I wished AG hadn't copied Felicity's Christmas Dress and GOML Cécile's dress for her meet gown. Her pin curls do get messed up easily but are able to be fixed. I liked her book, then again, I am not too critical on AG books. It showed how shy "Bitsy" became a clever prankster. I bring out that quality quite a bit more in my doll- I remember that I disliked how snooty Elizabeth seemed because of her being a Loyalist and Felicity a Patriot, but I understand this was to make a better plot. I myself have a shy side and an outgoing side, so Elizabeth is alot like me. But I'm straying off topic. Elizabeth's earrings are difficult to get out, so I don't change them frequently. I have let down her hair once but was really afraid that it might crush her pincurls so did the hairstyle again. It's a really neat hairstyle! In closing, I really treasure my Elizabeth doll. She makes a great Today girl- in fact, she is basically my Today girl and travels into colonial days since I have only three colonial dresses for her. I think some people have made their Lizzies into modern day girls. I'd highly recommend Elizabeth- if you can forgive AG for changing her. I did- at first I was angry, but beautiful pictures convinced me I had to have her. HTH!
