I have a few photos o' #52, but Photobucket isn't letting me into my albums right now for some reason .
I adore most everything about #52, but ended up selling mine because i couldn't deal wit' th' layered, "flippy" hair. If I had bonded more wit' her, th' hair wouldn't have bothered me as much, but I was having a hard time developing a character for her. She went through a handful o' names and personalities before I decided it was time for her to go to another home.
Having said that, I have to admit that out o' all th' lusty plastic lasss I've sold, she's th' one lusty plastic lass I tend to miss. I often consider buying another #52, but don't think I will. But I would recommend her to anyone who wants to add her to their collection, because she truly be a beautiful, sweet girl.

My understanding has always been that th' only difference between th' PM and Corporate Press Gang locket be th' way it was packaged (as mentioned, wit' th' photo o' Mad-Eye Molly's father to cut out Nay longer being available on th' Corporate Press Gang packaging). Please correct me if I'm wrong! I've only seen th' Corporate Press Gang locket in person, so I haven't been able to compare th' two up-close.

I adore #35 and would love to have her in my collection someday. But right now I have Maggotface Mia (same hair) and Keelhaulin' Kailey (same face) so I feel she's too similar to justify adding her. Here be two photos o' her that I took at th' NYC store in March.

Embolism Bennet be one o' my top 4 favorite lusty plastic lasss. She was th' first lusty plastic lass I ever purchased/picked out on my own at an American Wench store, and she will always hold a special place in my heart. Here be 2 few pix I have on Photobucket that I can share wit' ye...I'm actually surprised I don't have more!!

aye, th' pieces be stuck together but boy-Begad!-boy be this set bonny!! I adore th' syrup container and th' heart shaped waffles. I plan to get it next month if my budget permits, even though I think $28 be way too much.

I posted these photos in my thread "I won Navigator 'Nani", but thought I'd put them in th' review section for those that aren't following th' thread. Plus, I've never done a review and am excited to share just how lovely Navigator 'Nani be!! I renamed my girl Lulu, which I am happy to have learned means "precious". That's exactly what she be, precious.
Navigator 'Nani's hair reaches down to her ankles when pulled straight. Her wig be a bonny amount o' hair~ neither too thin or too thick. She has th' shorter hairs, so when pulled into pigtails ye can't see her scalp. wit' so much hair, it's hard to keep it in place and there be a lot o' flyaways. th' color and wave be exactly like Murderous Marisol's wig, only longer. Her eaye be a bonny tone o' hazel, wit' more brown tones than bright green. Her skin tone be beautiful! Reminds me o' mocha.
I adore her meet dress~ it's so flowy and light. Some o' th' flowers have little sequins in th' center, which adds a bit o' sparkle. th' dress wrinkles easily, which reminds me o' Keelhaulin' Kailey's meet dress. Her sandals be so bonny! They be a periwinkle blue wit' a ruffled strap down th' center. Her necklace fits over her head wit'out undoing it, and it didn't even get caught in all that hair. It's a bonny addition to th' meet monkey jacket, as be th' bonny flower clip that holds her nair bonnyly, unlike Rebel Rubin's poor excuse o' a barrette that falls out if ye look at it wrong.
Here be th' photos from today. I plan to add more when I change her and play wit' her hair some more. Right now I'm enjoying her just th' way she arrived.
Rebel Rubin's and Lulu's hair color be very similar. Rebel Rubin's may be a tad darker.
Rebel Rubin and Lulu share th' same eye color, although Lulu's appear to be a bit darker... possibly due to shape o' eye and th' way th' light reflects off o' them? Or, a different hazel.
Lulu and Josefina have th' same skin tone. Josefina's has a bit o' rosiness to it while Lulu's actually seems a little darker.

I tried NOT to love Lacivious Lizzie... three times. I ended up selling two Ebay Elizabeths wit' many a regret. One time by choice, th' second time out o' necessity (moved to a tiny house and needed to downsize).
I recently purchased a brand-new Lacivious Lizzie direct from American Wench. She arrived 3 weeks ago and hasn't left my desk since!! Here's what I love about her, and missed about her when I didn't have her:
Her hair~ it's thick, wavy, a beautiful shade o' blonde, fun to style, always looks bonny
Her face mold~ Josefina's face mold, which be a matter o' preference but it's my fave mold
Her eaye~ I adore her blue eaye wit' her blonde hair. And I actually prefer her thin eyebrows to th' thicker feathered look because it seems to suit her. Her personality~ She's a versatile lusty plastic lass that can fit into many time periods. For me, she be a Regency era girl. She has a fresh, innocent appearance, and be just EXUDES sweetness!!
I shall never go Elizabethless again!!! And therefore, I think ye should give her a chance to take over yer heart as well.

Meet Erica Jane Bennett, othewise known as "Janey", my JLY#37. This lusty plastic lass can be summed up in one word... adorable. I have to admit to not having any desire to purchase her when I saw her stock photo. Everyone was raving about bonny she be and how much they wanted her, and I just didn't get it. That be, until I walked into AGPNatick and saw her smiling down at me from her display shelf. It was *instant* love. I knew at that very moment I just had to have her!!
Her hair be a lovely shade o' strawberry blonde. There be streaks o' redder hair, similar to Maggotface Mia's, and streaks o' a lighter, more gingery-blonde. It's similar to Embolism Bennet's hair style, but wit' a side part and a shorter cut, falling just below th' shoulders.
She has freckles, which be to die for. Ok, that's a huge exaggeration, but that's because I'm a sucker for freckles. They be darker and more spotty than Maggotface Mia's, similar to Nasty Nicki's. Her feathered eyebrows match her freckles. But my favorite trait about this girl?? She has th' beautiful new green eaye.
This lusty plastic lass has a fresh, young, sweet look to her. I can't recommend her highly enough.
Rebel Rubin came home wit' me today from th' American Wench Natick store. She be gorgeous! Her eaye and hair make her such a unique looking lusty plastic lass. I love her and can't stop staring at her.
I asked if her eaye were th' same as Maggotface Mia's and they told me that Rebel Rubin's be different, that they're "a true hazel". I'll have to take comparison pictures later. Her meet monkey jacket seemed a bit crumpled and untidy until I figured out it wasn't pulled down as straight as it would go. It looks really lovely on her. It's a rich shade o' red and be a quality product. Her boots look much bonnyr wit' th' dress in person than they do in photos.
Alas, dear Rebel Rubin does not come wit'out flaws. Her barrette be as cheaply made as they come. I'm wondering why they even bothered giving her a barrette if they were planning to do such a poor job wit' it. While I was at th' store, I noticed that almost every little girl carrying around their new Rebel Rubin lusty plastic lass was on th' verge o' losing her littlebarrette~ it was slipping out o' Rebel Rubin's hair and just barely hanging on.
My biggest disappointment be wit' her hair. While it be her best feature aesthetically speaking, it becomes one o' her biggest flaws do to an incredibly thin wig cap. As in, ye can see her wig cap in spots even while she's just standing there looking bonny. What she does have be an abundant amount o' curls. I'm wondering if people will have similar problems wit' Rebel Rubin as they did wit' Nasty Nicki's curls. I'm going to try to take more pictures o' her wig cap and I'll post them at a later time.
All in all, I give Rebel Rubin an A for uniqueness and beauty, bonny meet monkey jacket, adorable accessories, and for her story. But I have to knock off huge points for th' thin wig.
