I love this outfit. My shirt is a little too short, so I have to hike up the skirt to Sophie Claire's belly button, but other than that, this outfit amazed me. I am not a big fan of the shoes, as the material seems too fuzzy for shoes. It's like the stuff on my bunny slippers, just shorter. Also, the rhinestones on the shoes don't match the shirt. The shirt has silver, and some light bronze, studs. These rhinstones (on mine, at least) are bright gold. The skirt is what I really adore. The stitching is what I love most. It is so fine and intricate. I have a friend who does beautiful silk stitching, and her stitches are just like these, actually. My skirt, even when hiked up, still goes to *about* my dolls knees. Nowhere as short as Keri's is on Beatrice. Overall, I give it an A, maybe A- because of the length of the shirt and the shoes.
-This trunk is covered with a soft, lilac, faux-leather (but very good faux leather!). It has a stylized star on the front with the words, "Dance Studio" underneath it.
-The trunk has a metal (not plastic!) handle and metal clasps.
-Inside is a mirror (that comes with a protective film on it, be sure to remove the film!) and a removable wooden ballet bar. Inside there are also two hooks (one for hangers, one which I use to hang ballet slippers off of) and a cubby.
-The trunk also comes with an adorable shoe box sporting the same stylized star that is on the front of the trunk.
If you remove the dolls shoes and the ballet bar, a doll can stand inside in front of the mirror. You will probably want to put the ballet bar back in after the doll is inside, because this stops the doll from flopping around. It is a rather tight fit with the doll, but it works.
All in all, I give this trunk an A-, purely because the soft outside dents and gets rub marks on it quite easily. But this is great for storage, display, and play. I highly recommend it.
A good friend of mine owns this doll. I myself was tempted to buy her. Her hair is so bouncy and beautiful. She has so much personality! She looks awesome in Nicki's Gala outfit with her hair in braids!
#25 has gorgous hair, a beautiful face, and looks great in almost every way. But then again, maybe I'm just saying that 'cause she looks like me. ;D Actually, I find my Sophie's hair to be, while not thick, a quite reasonable thickness. Yes, it is slippery, but I don't mind! I tried tying a knot in her hair and it slid right out. Which is a good thing for me. I enjoy putting her hair in french braids, ponytails, and buns. My favourite hair-style for her is a hairband. I can't stand her hair falling into her pretty little eyes all the time, but I like it down. She can be any culture. Mine is from London, England.
My Sophie Claire is to die for... I finally got some pictures!
