I ended up ordering Caroline during the pre-order deal with the Personal Shoppers. She was delivered on launch day but didn't get the chance to open her until the next day. Regardless, it was worth the wait! I love this doll, even though she has a classic mold (something that is in abundance with my collection) I wanted the new eyes and the blonde hair, plus she's Regency which sealed the deal.
Like the others stated above, she has aquamarine colored eyes, very light blonde curly hair and feathered brows. My dolls' wig is medium thickness with the shorthairs in the back, thank goodness. I am not skilled at doing doll hair but I need to practice so this is a great doll to do it with. The only issue with my doll was the people dressing her were not careful with her sock, and it was bunched up. I took them off the doll, and neither the shoe or the sock were damaged. She has the long body tag and the stuffing on my particular doll is actually perfect I think. Not overstuffed but not lacking anything either.
The meet outfit is cute- I love it but I think I will be putting it on another doll for when the modern dolls play "Regency Dress Up". Oh yeah- I renamed her Annabelle, her modern and historical character share this name. I am creating a character in a novel I'm writing and her name fit in the manuscript and with the doll. I read her first book last night and it was very well written- very exciting with lots of conflict to keep the story moving along.
