I bought my Marie-Grace NIB on eBay for about the same price I would have paid had I bought her during the 25%-off Apocalypse. I really was interested in her after finally reading all three of her books, and really relating well to her shy character.
Marie-Grace (AKA Alex in her modern persona) came to me today, much to my surprise, since when I checked the delivery status, she was still marked as being somewhere in the midwest. Anyway, she came in the usual packing ...
Her right eye opening seems a bit less round/smaller than her left eye, but it does not really bug me that much.
Anyway, I believe she is a first-production run, since she seems to match and look like the description that Dollhouse Designs kindly wrote about above.
Like EofA mentioned, M-G already has the annoying flyaways. I will probably take her braids down at some point.
As for her meet outfit, I really hate pink, and especially this colour of pink, so the outfit gets a C from me.
However, the doll itself gets a resounding A. I love the new face mould, and this is my first brown-haired, blue-eyed doll, and this makes me even more happy to have this combination added to my collection. Her wig does seem a bit thin, but not any thinner than Kanani's, I would say.
What I also find great about M-G is that she really looks good in any colour outfit. Some dolls just cannot pull that off, but M-G can. I will throw in more pictures of her in modern clothes, once I get around to actually buying some, but in the meantime, here are pictures I took for another thread of M-G in Felicity's outfits. She makes a wonderful colonial girl.
First Meet Dress
Nightshift and Cap
These outfits really make me wish AG makes a bonnet for her at some point. She is definitely a hat doll.
