Here's how a combo of [hair down + mob cap framing the face] on West German Felicity, in three views (front, side, back).
If you cringe at historical inaccuracy because colonial modesty says my Lizzie should have her hair tied back for this pic, don't look I love how she looks with her hair down - I don't care about historical accuracy when it comes to showing off beautiful hair.
The second pic's the closest to her actual hair color in life. It actually glows more red than in the photos, but my camera's a free low-quality one built into the computer.

Not much more to add - but I'll throw a picture in. I will say that my Felicity's hair has stayed absolutely gorgeous over the 15+ years we've had her. It's lost any of its original curl, but it is still smooth, silky, and pretty.

A+++ I finally got the Felicity that I have always wanted...a pre-Mattel, German made beauty. She came yesterday, new in her original box, still attached, purchased from her original owner. She is stunning. Her skin coloring is very soft and creamy, almost a peaches and cream complexion, but not as pale as my German Molly. Her eyes are a lovely shade of green, clear and bright (but not neon green like the newer Mattel green eyes). Her hair is a beautiful shade of coppery red, and is still in her original ponytail. She has a plumper body than the newer dolls, and soft squishy vinyl limbs. She is an absolutely beautiful doll, and I can't wait to get to know her!
My girls: Caroline, Kit, Molly (pm), Lilo (pm #11), Haddix (pm original #6), Marie Grace, WB Samantha, Emmalina (Gotz)
DD: Elizabeth(custom), Rebecca, Kaya, JLY3,and first edition Josefina!
I positively love my Pleasant Company Felicity! I got her off of Ebay for $50 about a year ago and she was well worth every penny. Her hair color is gorgeous and I think her eyes are far prettier than the Mattel version. But I'm partial to PM dolls in general. Her adorable pin curls are very delicate and I curl them around a pencil then hold them in place with a small bobby pin overnight to keep them neat. The Rose Garden Gown is nice and works well with her Cardinal Cloak. I like it much better than the lavender one. Overall a very beautiful, photogenic doll

I just bought my Felicity on Craigslist (actually an hour ago) and I love her. The doll herself is just beautiful. Her copper hair is dry but it's still shiny. Her green eyes are slightly less neon than I've seen pictures for. Her dress is so beautiful. I give her an A.

What can I say? I absolutely love Felicity! For me, she's the one that started it all. This particular Felicity is the oldest one I have, and she has to be from '93' to '95, as I received her many years ago as a gift from my babysitter who had had her when she was a child. She's in her late twenties now, so that leads me to assume that the doll is at least from the mid '90's.
As far as reviewing goes, she's lovely. her green eyes and red hair are what I adore the most about her. She's got a fat body, and and soft auburn eyelashes. Her skin isn't super squishy, but it's also not super firm, it's just right. There isn't much to add that others haven't said. her meet clothes are beautiful, and high quality. She's overall an elegant doll. A PM Felicity is a real joy. No collection is complete without this colonial beauty!

My Felicity arrived today from an eBay seller. Her body does not have a tag and the back of her neck says Pleasant Company. Her legs and arms are squeezier than my other newer dolls. She is just beautiful!
A+ I purchased a TLC Pleasant Company Felicity with artist mark and no body tag that I restrung and attached a detached arm. Her hair was all matted so I gave her a downy dunk. Her hair is still dry and has a large bald spot in the back where her wig cap is visible; however it's under the top layer of hair so it's not really visible unless you look for it. If I pull her hair back in her ponytail, no one would know it's there. Her hair is the prettiest copper color. I was surprised at how beautiful she is. She is my favorite doll now. Her green eyes are a softer green than the Mattel Felicity's. Her face is so soft and she has the prettiest brownish red eyelashes! I love her copper colored hair. I purchased a 1993 Pleasant Company rose garden meet dress and shift, meet socks and shoes for her. I really like how well made her meet dress is and love the design also. I wish I knew what year my Felicity was from it's thought to be mid 1990s.

I agree. I have a German made Felicity because she has a body tag stating so. She has a wider face and soft beautiful coloring. the variations among Felicity is like Samantha. My Samantha is a relatively early one in a Hungary meet dress but, she has more facial coloring than some others I've seen in that dress. I'm sure everyone feels that their Lissie is the most beautiful one
Pets are not our whole lives, but they make our lives whole =^-^= No outfit is complete without pet hair.

My PM Felicity just arrived today. She arrived in her complete Rose Garden meet outfit, but of course I took her out of it right away. The dress and shift are both tagged "made in China for Pleasant Company", which leads me to believe that Felicity was also made in China. She is in displayed only condition. Her limbs are tight, but the legs are a little wobbly, since she is stuffed so much more softly than both my White Bodied Samantha and my Mattel Rebecca and Kanani. She has coppery red hair, quite different from the Mattel Felicity that I once owned. Her eyes are definitely green, but not the laser green of Mattel dolls. She is still figuring out her style, since she's probably going to be a modern girl instead of a historical girl. Although she might go back and forth: I haven't decided yet.

I have always prefered Felicity over Elizabeth, I don’t know what it is about Elizabeth but I just don’t like her. I was lucky enough to find a pleasant company Felicity on ebay for £70 and she came in her whole meet outfit AND original hairstyle, I prefer this version of Felicty. (Mine has being renamed Clara). I love her features, she has light skin, line eyebrows which I don’t mind as much as other people, green eyes which are not as bright as the Mattel dolls and ‘red’ hair, that is quite long and a bit wavy, with little pin curls at the front (I cut mine of and don’t regret it). I would not call her hair red at all, red hair to me is a bright ginger colour which she doesn’t have I would call the colour dark auburn but to me it just looks brown. I like her meet outfit much better than her Traveling gown. I hate her shift the elastic is all stretched and hangs funny, the dress is pretty and works well for my custom 1600’s doll, Autumn. Her socks are thick and good quality and her shoes which I didn’t like in pictures are actually a lot cuter in real life. Overall I give this doll an A+ she is just stunning, her hair is easy to care for and I just love everything about her, only thing I would change is her to have proper ginger hair but AG never make that wig so I am not complaining and won;t deduct for that.
