This outfit looks a bit blah in its stock photo, but I picked it up when I was at AGP today because it's so sweet in person. I like it, it's simple without being so simple I could make it myself. Plus, hey, another pair of boots! Headband is also very nice, stretchy and soft.
Hehe, I put my #58 in the Weekend Fun outfit, too!
I am at a loss for words for how gorgeous this doll is! It's really hard for me to stop staring at her. I've never disliked the Addy mold, but it took having it around in person for me to really fall for it. Her expression is so sweet.
I'm still getting used to the wig. I'm a bit scared to really mess with it so far, and she's mostly been on display. I can say though that up close the curls have an almost frizzy texture, and when you pull them straight they go down to her waist.
Stunning doll! If you're on the fence, get her! : )
I don't know if the wig changed over the years or not, but my doll is PM, and while the front layer appeared shorter when it was in its standard braid, when you take it down and part her hair, that section is actually longer.
I've been pining for Chrissa ever since I saw her in person on my first trip to the AGPNY! She's a really beautiful doll, and underrated I think. Some dolls are less photogenic than others, but that doesn't mean you CAN'T get a good picture of them, it just means they're a bit more of a challenge! And I loves me a challenge! : )
I added some freckles to my Chrissa just to make her look a bit more distinct from my other dolls, but she was gorgeous without them, too. And I wouldn't call my doll's wig thin at all. I guess just different Chrissas have slightly different wigs.
I got this outfit for my 18" girls, and I'm very pleased with how nice it looks on them. Please excuse my room's green lighting.
Here's CJ wearing the Seaside Outfit, with Promise in last year's Sea Breeze Outfit for comparison. They look cute together, but don't match as exactly as I was thinking they would. Most notably, the blue in the Bitty outfit is more of a basic primary blue, the stripes are further apart, and each stripe is actually two colors. I'm not crazy about hats on my dolls, and this one in particular makes the whole outfit look younger, so here it is hat-free:
The top seems like a comfortable size on them. It's not skin tight, but it's also not too loose like some Bitty shirts and dresses tend to be. The shorts are great and fit perfectly.
The bow is very crisp and sewn down. The blue line around the collar is raised and is a nice detail. Here you can see what I mean about the stripes being two colors.
The anchors along the bottom are real embroidery. There's just the three of them across the front, they don't go onto the back.
And here are the shoes on my Bitty's feet. They're too small to wriggle onto an 18"er's foot. They're cute I guess, but not really my style...I think it's cute that they're all soft though, like shoes that you really would put on a baby.
All in all I love this one. This is one of my favorite outfits I've bought for a while. It's light and summery and sweet, and now my dolls finally have a pair of shorts! Yay!!
The romper is lightweight and fits pretty snugly. Donna is my thinnest doll and it took a bit of tugging to get it up over her tush. I'm not sure if I would be able to get it on one of my PM's at all. I'm not crazy about the hat, but there isn't much to say about it. It's a nice deep red, and it's also pretty thin but it's cute.
Adorable little buttons:
The stripes are a nice cornflower blue color. The lighting in my room isn't the greatest, but it's a nice flattering calm kind of blue.
They're very cute and they fit well. They were a little tricky for me to get on because the white straps like to go under the doll's foot, but otherwise no complaints. They're white on the inside, too, so no staining yay!
It comes with a very simple, stupid-looking red charm which is a flat square bead with "SMART" written on each side. Uh, lame much? But whatever.
I don't know if this is worth its $28 tag exactly, but it's a great-looking outfit and I love the colors. Great detail but still simple and clean looking. I think it's going to look great without the hat and paired with black or blue shoes, too. Grade A from me.
#15 is an incredibly lovely and unique doll. I was so happy to finally find one for my very own!
I insta-bonded with Leslie as soon as I took her hair out of its funny looking braid and parted it to the sides. I love that you can part her hair any way you want, because I wanted a doll with a center part, and even though AG offers very few of those, I was able to make my own! : )
Her skin tone is barely darker than the light skin tone, in my opinion anyway. I mean, she's clearly darker, but not by much. Her hair is huge and amazing. I just haven't had the heart to leave it in any up-do for very long because it's just so gorgeous left down. It's pretty sad that Addy is the only doll still available with textured hair, and that she's likely to be archived as soon as they release a new African American historical, because the hair is really different and fun to work with....I'll be sad to see it gone for good.
I adore this set. I love how every piece is good for mix-and-match, the bright bold colors, and how it isn't particularly girly! There is absolutely nothing currently available for a doll who wants to be a tomboy. D:
As per request, here's a few hairstyles...I couldn't come up with too too many different looks, but I don't have any butterfly clips, and I imagine they would be useful on a doll with short hair like this too.
She has a pretty good amount of short hairs in her wig, so she looks nice with it parted in the back. Yay!
