I got my Emma (Kanani) yesterday. As with some others, her hair was a bit tangled in the hair net, and I at first has a bit of difficulty, because the hairnet kept getting caught on the neck hook (?), so it was a bit of a pain to actually get her out of the box itself.
Her skin is definitely not as dark as the stock photos were suggesting (relative to her hair). Her stuffing is a bit off, where her right upper chest by her shoulder seems a little understuffed. This is making her head tilt a bit, but I will fix that once I gather the courage to undo her neck strings. Her left eye is slightly smaller than her right, but it is not so extreme that I will return her. This is my first Jess mold, and I can see how some have complained that it does not look "Asian" enough. Emma seems to fit the bill more of an older Caucasian girl.
Her meet outfit is alright. I got Emma with making an entirely different character in mind, so for the moment, I do not know what I will do with the outfit. I like the flower clip a lot, and will use it for my modern doll, Se Ah. As for the dress and sandals, I will probably just keep them for now. The blue is a bit bright for my personal taste (and Se Ah's). Emma is still wearing the sandals with the clear elastic since I do not have any shoes for her yet, but they seem a bit flimsy to me.
This was a doll I was debating on, and now I am very happy I got her. She is definitely gorgeous, and fits the bill for the character I had in mind. She almost makes me just say, "Forget about Rebecca now, Emma is plenty, and fills in the gap I had of a curly haired, light brown haired doll." I can definitely see younger children having difficulty with her hair over time. I need to get a small spray bottle myself to work out her tangles, but for now, I put it in a loose braid until I have more time this weekend to work on her.
