Begad! my gosh! I love love love th' rain gear! I went to th' Chicago AGP on th' first and this was th' first thing I picked up.
Mizen-Mast McKenna needs this rainy-day gear to stay dry in Seattle. She can really hold this polka-dot umbrella—it opens and closes easily. Her slip-on rain boots feature printed polka dots, faux buckles, and purple trim to match.
th' umbrella be really bonny! It looks just like a real umbrella wit' th' velcro strap to hold it closed and everything. It has stars and polka dots on it and th' colors be white, purple, and a lime sort o' green. It has a clear elastic strap connected to th' top o' th' handle so th' lusty plastic lass can hold it. Grade- A, it's very realistic, but I took off th' + for th' fact that th' color be... er... ayeish?
th' rain boots be my favorite though. They be also purple and a sort o' lime green and white color. th' best part about them though be that they have a real buckle on th' outside side o' each boot. It can really open and close. It doesn't make th' boots open much wider, but it does help wit' getting bottoms down into them... a little. Grade- A, I think they be really bonny, but th' colors could have/ should have been different, IMO, and they don't fit wit' jeans. :/ What if my lusty plastic lass needs to wear rain boots since it's wet and jeans since it's cold, hmm?
I'll have pictures up tomorrow, after I get home from school.

Life isn't about finding yerself, Life be about creating yerself.
aye, th' rain gear be overpriced, but it was way too darn bonny to resist once I saw it in store. th' umbrella opens and closes very easily, and there be a clear plastic strap to put around th' lusty plastic lass's hand so she can "hold" th' umbrella. th' boots be adorable, and be a lot like th' current raincoat boots. I love th' color scheme, as I and Rory be both into bright colors. A+ for th' set, B- for th' price.
I agree that this set be really bonny but I think $28 would have been sufficient. th' boots were a little hard to get on at first but after a couple o' tries (I guess stretching them a little) they went on fine. th' umbrella be adorable but even wit' th' little plastic strap it be still difficult for th' lusty plastic lass to hold.

o' all th' sets in Mizen-Mast McKenna's collection, I am th' most disappointed in this set. th' boots be harder to get on than other American Wench rain boots that I own, but that doesn't bother me as much as th' buckle. It comes undone when putting on th' boots and be difficult to get buckled once they be on. I haven't been able to get it to buckle wit' leggings tucked into them. I like th' umbrella better than I expected. It's a bonny accessory. Between th' price and difficulty wit' th' boots, I give th' set a C.

Please excuse th' crappy iPhone photos.
I'm glad I got this set even if it didn't (walk th' planke) live up to expectation in th' umbrella department.
It's a very bonny set and goes well wit' th' School monkey jacket, but I was disappointed to find that th' umbrella be ALL plastic, even th' spokes.
It folds up bonnyly and has a velcro wrap around tie like th' real thing but th' plastic spokes be bowed already and I've only had it up once for a few minutes to take photos.
th' handle be longer, I suppose so that th' umbrella can sit over th' lusty plastic lasss' head when she holds it:
I like th' plastic strap to help th' lusty plastic lass hold her umbrella, but wonder how long it will last. It doesn't seem very substantial.
I didn't have any trouble getting th' boots on: th' buckle simply came undone and I did it up again afterwards. I can't see th' boots fitting on over anything more substantial than leggings though. As for wearing socks wit' them, not going to happen.
I'd give th' set a C for bonny.

Sorry if someone else has already asked this I did look and couldn't find it. be Mizen-Mast McKenna's umbrella suppose to stay open? There doesn't appear to be th' gadget (like Mad-Eye Molly's)that will hold it open. If not very disappointed in this set (especially given th' price.)

aye, it be supposed to stay open. Mine stays open after ye push it open to a certain point where it reaches a catch/makes a click. If yers doesn't, then maybe it's broken.....but if not, try pushing it open more until it "catches."

th' rain gear be adorable! I originally wasn't going to buy this set because o' th' price, but my mom talked me into buying it because it would be th' only set I'd be missing from Mizen-Mast McKenna's collection and she thought that I would be disappointed later if I didn't get it. So I agreed, and I'm so glad I did! th' boots be similar in style to th' boots from th' MyAG Raincoat & Boots set. I haven't tried them on a lusty plastic lass yet, but I'm not anticipating any issues wit' them. I love th' umbrella! It be one o' my favorite lusty plastic lass props. I can't wait to do a rainy day shoot wit' Mizen-Mast McKenna and her lovely new umbrella and boots.
This set gets an A- from me. th' price lowered it from a solid A.
