All right, I couldn't stand not getting another FR:16. I've been carefully stalking eBay, online stores and forums for the past week searching for a good price on an Elsa Lin, and finally got her for a LOT less than retail. It's been so difficult finding "live" pics of this girl (read: ALMOST IMPOSSIBLE), so I thought I'd spam you for a while with pics. She seems to be the least popular of the FR:16 girls and I think part of it is her skin tone. She looks vampire-white in the promo pics, but I confirmed with Integrity that she actually has the "Japan" skin tone like their Fashion Royalty Luchia. Her skin doesn't look quite so ghostly white in real life.
I think her sculpt is very pretty, and looks like it will be versatile. She'll look stunning with longer hair in different colors. I can't wait to see her as a redhead or blonde.
Her bold yellow-and-black dress is pretty and designed nicely, but I don't think the colors flatter her. (Yellow next to that pale skin tone?) I think she'll look better redressed. That's just my opinion, though. I'm not a "runway" type of girl, anyway. I couldn't care less that my dolls are wearing a runway designer look. I just want them in nice, normal, functional clothing. I have FR:16 Anais coming, too, in a couple of days. ... I think the yellow-and-black dress might look better on her darker skin. I'll have to do a re-dress and find out.
Her eye paint is lovely. Her eye color is a unique grey-toned aqua, and her makeup palette is done in smokey blacks and browns.
