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.
