Because of the rain, the lighting isn't ideal for photos, but since we're not due to have a non-rainy day for a week, I decided not to wait to share - so apologies for that!
This doll comes on the standard body, and its main unique feature is that she has the Ellowyne head while being a darker colour (which is usually only offered with the Lizzette head). The doll comes dressed in an orange sari, with gold high heeled shoes, and with a variety of pieces of jewellery. Her hands, which are painted with henna-style designs, need to be removed in order to fit the bangles onto her wrists.

Her outfit consists of three pieces, plus tights.The golden sequins on the top really catch the light!

As with every pair of Tonner shoes I own, these were a pain to get onto
the doll's feet.

She has quite long hair, and I do worry about it getting
tangled - I'll probably end up keeping it braided.
|Face comparison with Lizette: she has rounder eyes, more of a pointy chin|
and a narrower nose.
For those who are unfamiliar with the size, here are some comparisons:

I will say that I think the regular retail price $189 USD is a little high for a doll with such a simple outfit - I would normally expect something more more elaborate at that price point (as a comparison, most Ellowynes in simple outfits are in the $149 to $159 range). Still, I'm quite happy with her overall, so I can't complain!
