Really love this one! Everything fits so nicely, nothing is too tight, yay! The cosmic print tennis shoes are adorable and will go with a lot of outfits, The jacket zips up in the front and has 3 patches on the front, a star, a robot and the NASA logo. There is also an elbow patch on each sleeve, one with a rocket that says 'rock it' and one with 'mars' on it. Really happy with the ease of getting all of these pieces on and how cute they all are.

Luciana is mission-ready in this outfit she wears to learn and explore at Space Camp. Includes:
A multicolored space-dyed tank top A varsity jacket with patches she proudly wears at camp and at home Denim shorts with a decal heart Bright cosmic-print sneakers
I don't have Luciana but I've liked this outfit since it came out and I was excited to be able to pick it up at the Seattle store. I love the style--it's so "normal" looking. It reminds me of things I used to wear when I was little. Are turtlenecks coming back into style? All the pieces are nicely made.
Tank: I love the color and style. I strongly dislike the fact that the chest fabric doesn't quite reach to the arm sockets. B
Jacket: The best piece in the ensemble, in my opinion. The shiny teal fabric is gorgeous (photos don't do it justice) and I love the knit edging and the zipper. The teal is a bit more green than my pictures show. The space theme patches are cute, though I would have preferred it to be left plain since I'm not into the character. A
Shorts: Very cute, normal shorts. I wish they didn't sew the cuff at the hem (I'd like to be able to roll them up myself) and I wish they had pockets in the back and belt loops. I don't mind the decal. A
Sneakers: Adorable! I LOVE the color and pattern. I wish they gave us real ties, though. We're not babies. A
My current AG dolls: Patience (#4), Amanda (custom #26), Zipporah (#58), Emma (Z), Dusty (#39), Zara (#28), Hope (PC Molly), #62, #66, Jennifer Mae (CYO), Sylvestra (#37), Aubrey (custom #86), #40, Kai (#79), Zinnia (#86), Susan (#2), Cynthia Rose (#27), Ashley (Kira), Stella (#90), Saoirse (#91), Serena (Bitty Twin).

I picked this outfit up at the American Girl Place Columbus this past weekend and couldn't wait to change Luciana into it (poor girl has been wearing her Meet dress since I got her in January, so she was just as eager to change into something else). Overall, I'm pleased with it and think it's a cute ensemble. It fits her perfectly (not too tight, not too loose), but it has its flaws. (Please excuse the lackluster pictures - I just snapped them quickly when I was changing her )
Shirt: I love the colour and style of the tank top (I'm a sucker for a high-necked tank!). I do wish, however, that the fabric at least reached the arm sockets. I can handle seeing a doll's cloth torso when they wear low-neckline shirts, but the arm sockets are pretty jarring. Regardless, it works well with a jacket and I can see it being pretty versatile if someone wanted to mix and match it with other outfits.
Shorts: These are a solid pair of rolled denim shorts. I love the simplicity of them and I like the little touch of her "signature" decal (which I failed to photograph). They seem well-sewn and constructed. Like the tank, there's a lot of mix and match potential and I think they'd work for almost any modern doll even with the decal.
A view of the tank and shorts. Hopefully you can see what I mean when I mention the arm sockets showing (not noticeable at all when paired with a jacket, but it might be more of a problem when worn alone). The necklace is part of her Meet accessories - she refused to take it off
Jacket: This is the "showpiece" of the ensemble. If I'm going to be honest, I really really dislike the feel of the fabric. I dunno, it just feels like it'll snag easily to me (I could be totally wrong - I have no intent of testing this). The colour, however, is quite nice and fits with the "space" theme well. I also adore the patches, though I wonder what they're made of (they're this weird, kind of fuzzy material). I kind of wish that they looked more like they were sewn on instead of like stickers, but overall, I'm happy with the jacket. It also feels well made and like a real jacket, which is always a plus.

And here's the left side.
Shoes: These are some fun shoes! The cosmic pattern is fantastic and so unique...I wish I had shoes like this. I can see them going with plenty of other outfits, both for Luciana and other characters. It would have been nice to get some real laces, though. The laces provided are elastic bands stretched through the grommets. They keep the shoe reliably on, I suppose, but I had a devil of a time wiggling Luciana's feet into them (maybe that's just me?). I could see a kid getting really frustrated with them.
The shoes. Very cute, but man did I struggle with getting them on!
Overall: I give the Stellar Outfit an A-. It has some really nice pieces and I love the colour and theme of it, but its flaws are noticeable and prevent me from rating it any higher. Luciana thinks I'm crazy, though - she loves it
My dolls: Samantha, Tess (Bitty Baby), Kit, Emma (#4), Molly, Elizaveta (My Twinn), Aziza (Goetz Little Sister), Saila (Maplelea), Kirsten, Viktoria, Peggy (#58), Marya Gregoryavna, Byron, Caroline, Alyssa (Stardust Classics), Joan of Arc (Dolls from Heaven), Luciana, Addy, Kaya, Rose (Magic Attic), Odette (Vanage Kristelle), Minuk (#11), Blaire, Blanaith (#8), Lindsey, Cécile, Eldora (#15), Nia (#18), Selina (#6), Courtney, and Margaret (#21).
