I bought the new #64 Fashionista "Leopard Lovin"

I picked the best looking one on the shelf, got it home, and realized one of the eyes is scratched.  Oh well.  I guess I'll just sit on it NRFB and wait and see if I can find a better one.

I appreciate that the top is black cotton jersey with a real screen print.  It's a nice touch.

Face paint variation in Tennis Coach Barbie


I noticed these two variations from the exact same shipment of new dolls.  It's surprising how different two copies of the same doll can be these days.  I now flip through all the dolls, if I didn't like a doll a few months ago, I might find a nicer variation.




Here are two extra bonuses I've had sitting on my drive.

Spotted new EPI "Fresh Dolls" at Walmart today.

I wish the company all the best, but I don't think these live up to the bar set by the Prettie Girls.  The giftsets were around $25, I forget what the single doll costs.  The faces are really that long, it's not distortion from my crummy cellphone camera.  The single fashions are $4.99, I think they will probably sell before the dolls.

Estella's new dress


I had this dress sitting around almost finished for most of the past year.  I made the mistake of using the most awful squishy knit fabric ever made.  I finally put some eyelets into the back to fasten it.  You can't tell from the photos, but the drat eyelets went in crooked thanks to the squishy fabric.  At least it's finished, it took much more effort than it looks like.  I liked the scale of the print, it seemed perfect for a bohemian maxi dress.

Got the new summer Barbie accessories pack.

The accessories assortment is now shipping with this pack replacing the beach tote pack.  The popcorn and neon yellow purse sets are unchanged.

I like the mostly realistic colors and styles.  I don't know what to do with the butterfly belt, but it's pretty and inoffensive enough.
