Rush of Rose Gold Barbie was my 2nd quarter BC purchase, and LSU Cheerleader Barbie was my 3rd quarter purchase. I was going to hold out and buy this girl in person, but I won't visit LSU country until around Christmas, and I couldn't wait that long. I only intend to keep the doll, the outfit will go, not because I'm that hard up for cash, but because I really don't care about team sports.
Mattel hasn't used the 1990 Nichelle head mold for a doll in ages. This is the first and only doll I have with it, because I'm not too crazy about the 1990s face painting styles. She looks as lovely and modern as any of the SIS girls.
The eyes on mine aren't quite centered properly on the face, but the eyes are both well done, so it's more forgivable. Both eyes are about the same size, with the same amount of white on either side of the iris. Compared to some of the messy Basics I've seen, LSU Barbie is very well off.
