I was on Amazon the other day, and I realised that I quite liked Fashionista #72. I had noticed her at Target in the past, but hadn’t bought her at the time, so Target was exactly where I headed.
Sorry the photos are bad quality, it was nighttime by the time I got home and I couldn’t wait to take her out of the box! I’ll definitely do a better post soon.
She was $10, $3 off the usual price. A good deal! There was another curvy Fashionista I liked, the lavender one, but I decided I shouldn’t go too crazy.
This is how she looked when I first pulled her out of the box. Her hair was quite messy, and when I touched it, pieces of hair kept falling out. Not a good first impression, huh?
Her face is so cute and unique! She looks like a sporty girl. At first I was going to call her Josie, but then I remembered that I don’t have a Nikki doll yet. With Dreamhouse Adventures coming up, I figured I should have my own personal Nikki doll.
Nikki’s shoes are a really lovely cream pink colour, with cute detailing above the heel. They’re really fashionable; I like the shoes a lot.
The dress and the shirt come seperate, which I was really thankful for. The shirt by itself is really, really nice and the pattern goes all the way around.
While the dress might not be super useful, the shirt is an item I really love, and it’s something I will be using more of in the future.
The sunglasses are mirrored and they don’t stay on very well. They look good on her head, but her face? Not so much.
Her hair is quite frizzy and tangled at the ends. I’ll have to give her a boil wash soon. I really like the mint green streak of colour, it’s something that really attracted me to this doll at first.
The velcro on the dress goes all the way down the back, which makes for speedy changing!
Here is the front of the dress, it’s quite similar to denim dresses I have seen in the shops recently. I would definitely wear this outfit myself in real life!
So, that’s my new Nikki doll! As I mentioned, I will try to do a better post in the future, I just wanted to get this “unboxing and first reactions” post done first because I am much too impatient!
Overall, I really like this doll, expect her arms a bit weird and zombie-like. If I had a spare body, I would definitely rebody her, but I only have one AA articulated body and that’s already being used. Perhaps I will be able to find her a new body in the meantime… We’ll see what happens, won’t we!
