I love my #38. I was drawn to her the minute she was introduced. I wanted to include her on my Christmas wish list, but my DS didn't like any of the redheads, so I waited and bought her for myself late in February. Her hair is super easy to manage with a brush and a spritz of water. Her bangs are thin and short (but not too thin or too short); so they don't take over her whole face. Her hair is easy to braid, put in a pony tail, or clip on up on the sides. She has a thick head of hair, with lots of short hairs. Her wig cap is always covered, no matter how I style her hair (The opposite of my Rebecca's hair). Her skin, hair, and eye coloring blend together nicely. Her freckles are well placed, are noticeable, but not too dark. She is definitely one of my favorite dolls!
Two views of the back of her head, one with her hair down, one with her hair in braids.
Her eyes are just a half a shade bluer than Rebecca's.
Her hair takes on different shades and tones depending on the lighting. None of my other dolls have hair than responds to light the same way. It can go from looking rather auburn-red to medium strawberry-blond to almost-blond with just a hint of red.
Here she is between Rebecca and Emily. You can see the differences in the color of Emily and #38's hair.
My Daughter received her as a Birthday present this past Summer. She is one of those dolls that looks so much better in person. The photos on the AG website and in the catalog do not do her justice. Her hair is soft and silky and super straight. My Daughter said it's very easy to style. We haven't had any issues with her hair like we have had with Julie's straight hair. Highly recommend!

After drooling over other members' photos for about 6 months, I caved and got her on my birthday trip to AGP this weekend.
She doesn't disappoint. I think she's the most exciting doll I've received since my new-condition PM Sam last year!
#38 has lovely hair, it's not very thick, but it's beautifully straight and easy to manage.
My only complaint on the ENTIRE doll is the bangs. After being in her box for however long before purchase, her bangs had static-clung to the lid and so they're sorta stuck that way. A little water and brushing gets them to do right but I haven't found a more permanent solution yet.
This girl is just gorgeous and looks good in anything. I've been staring at her for two days now. lol But you don't need to listen to my babble. Just see the below pics!
I give her an A++++++++! She's perfection.
Here she is after a successful day of AGP purchases:
Getting a change right out of the box (I despise the new meet outfit!):
She's great in the Ruby and Ribbons dress:
She likes to be outside, hates all this mountain rain:
I also recommend the PWP, she looks good in white (and everything else):

#38 (Rowan) my newest doll, is the first that I've ever bought whose name I knew for certain before she was in my hands, before she was purchased even. I feel very lucky to have been able to have Green Chile Supergirl and Aaryana hand pick her for me while they were at AGPNY.
Rowan has such a sweet and cheerful face and beautiful straight silky hair. Her colouring, hazel eyes and freckles are so, so pretty. I notice that her hair colour is realistically made up of strands of several different shades ranging from light brownish 'ginger' to strawberry blonde to blonde distributed through the wig. She seems to have a respectably full wig, too, neither too thin nor too thick and it is lovely to play with.
I give her an A+++ (x 1 000 000!). She's gorgeous and already a favourite here!
Here's one of my mini-me, Eliza. (Never posted a photo before, hope it works.) I'm going to re-wig her soon, so this may be the only unmodded #38 photo I'll have. (Also, yes, I know the glasses don't go with the outfit...they also aren't like the ones I had...:sigh: one day

I love my #38, Saoirse! She's one of my favorite dolls. She looks so much better in person than she does on the AG website. On thing that I especially love about her is that, depending in the light, her hair can look anywhere from blond to dark red. Here are a few pictures I have of her:
My daughter's #38, Trixie was purchased from a board member. Her ears are pierced. She is the only doll either of us own with bangs or freckles. I adore her hazel eyes. Her hair is very silky, although the color is more of a strawberry blonde than a true red, it is a realistic shade.
A shot with the #21 I had purchased and intended to use as Trixie's sister.
#21 didn't stay with us long, but #38 is a keeper!
