|Lizette "Spice" from Ellowyne Wilde|
But then there was a sale (15% off and free shipping) and I decided to take the plunge, and ordered a basic Lizette in the "Spice" colour (the same sculpt is offered in a lighter "honey" colour as well). The doll came with two wigs (on straight and one curly), a saddle stand, a pair of shoes and a simple dress. The sculpt is painted in a fairly neutral style, and has inset (I believe acrylic) eyes and attached eyelashes. The left eyelashes were crushed slightly, so I'll need to reattach those (naturally I only noticed after I'd taken photos).
I have to say that I was impressed with the shipping time: I ordered this doll on the final Monday of the sale, and yet she shipped out almost instantly, arriving in only two days. The doll was packed in the standard fashion doll style, with ties at the neck, waist and feet. She arrived with one wig on, which unfortunately stained her head. She came dressed, but with the shoes packaged separately.

The doll is nicely jointed, and has more flexibility than I expected, but she still doesn't have the full range of motion that one would expect of a ball-jointed doll or figure. For example, her hands can be positioned to touch her hair, but not her face. The knees have even less flexibility as they are simple hinge joints.
Still, given the limited posing of Tonner's Doctor Who dolls, I was pleased to see that this doll offers a broader range of movement possibilities.
Overall, I'd say I'm pleased but not thrilled with this doll - she has a more expressive face than a painted-eye fashion dolls, which is wonderful. And proportionately she can fit in well with a variety of other dolls and figures of this size, so with a different outfit, I think she'll be a nice display piece (I've also found a huge number of patterns for this size of doll, so the possibilities are almost endless).

look a bit strange here.
