I was less thrilled with this than I had expected. It's a cute outfit but I think the use of 'terry' fabric... even with sparkes!... is a bit odd. Maybe it's just me.
And the slippers that came in my set are, I think, decidedly odd. The sparkle part is on the soles and the top of the slippers (the part that shows!) are plain. It's too far/too expensive/too fiddly to send it back for that, and you can't see the shoes under the dress (much) anyway.
The wings are nicely done:
And the halo/headband is pretty. I've put it in like an 'Alice' band though it could go the other way, too.
I love the shape of the dress and especially the sleeves but I wish they had made it out of some other fabric... and the slippers are odd. Chrissa didn't want to put them on and she may have started a trend: my angel-costume-wearers will do so barefoot. I'd give this one a C cause it's cute still.
This outfit is very pretty. It's sparkly and just perfect for Winter holidays as well as Halloween. It does have a few drawbacks. The headband slides off a lot, and long doll hair gets in the way of the wings, so I think it works better for dolls with shorter hair. I never noticed until recently, but the white that outlines the edges and feather shapes of the wings is covered in a light sprinkling of iridescent glitter. This is a nice, subtle touch to add a little something to the outfit. I like this outfit despite the few drawbacks.

I got this outfit when I was younger for Chrissa, to match with my angel costume on Halloween.
The dress is very beautiful. It's sparky, and is very well detailed. The thing that bothers me is how the wings are attached to the back of the dress. They can look lumpy, and a little cheap. The sleeves are my favorite part. They are gathered at the bottom of the elbow. The material on the sleeves looks a little cheap, but it's still perfect, like the day I got it.
The headband is just a ribbon. It is a little cheap, but still completes the look.
The shoes are like slippers. They don't seem very practical for anything, besides wearing to bed.
