Agnes and Erin arrived! Here's my review

This is my very first Agnes and my very first Erin.  I'm blown over by the beauty and detail on Truly Madly Deeply Agnes!  She came with a second outfit as well, but I haven't gotten around to photographing it.  I'm not usually a fan of the color chartreuse (this gown) or coral (her second outfit), but in person the outfits are wonderful and I like them a whole lot more than I expected I would. 

Truly Madly Deeply Agnes's face is stunning and the paint is simply perfect.  I even like her hairstyle, which has cute ringlets on one side.

My one gripe is they sewed the long train of the skirt to the box in three or four places, and it ruined the fabric.  A lot of types of fabric can withstand this type of abuse just fine, but it definitely hurt this satin (or is it silk?).  The train of her skirt has tiny puncture wounds where the needle went through, and they are pretty obvious.  I'm trying not to look at them.

Besides that, the details of the outfit and jewelry are marvelous.  I love the tiny ring, which exactly matches her earrings.  I'm already expecting to lose it.  LOL.  Something that tiny that falls off her finger so easily will get lost in my messy house REALLY fast.

 This is the new sculpt Erin.  I was never a fan of the original sculpt, but loved High End Envy Erin's promo pics, so I took a chance and bought her.   Now that I've seen her in person, I'm afraid she's still not completely my cup of tea.  Her face shape resembles the original sculpt, which is nice for fans of the original sculpt.

Her face paint and clothing are perfect, but I don't think I'll be keeping this one.  I have too many bills to pay right now to keep a doll I don't love completely.  (I need a new car to replace the dented, old piece of junk I'm driving now, and that's factoring BIG TIME into my end-of-the-year budget.)  I'll be listing her on The DollPage Show & Sell tonight or tomorrow.
(EDIT:  Erin has been sold.  Sorry, Erin!  You were voted off the island.)


  1. Agnes looks really good! I think I need to see Erin in person to decide whether I'm loving her or not.

  2. Congrats! She's Not There Poppy came today--I haven't delved into the box...yet! Don
