I have seen very few, if any, photos of this wonderful doll (outside of the single promo photo)...she is 2005's "Jackpot" Madra! The two Madra dolls from 2005 have the most wonderful facepaint! The costume is well lined in a lighter fabric, so I don't think this one will stain (it certainly looks like a stainer, doesn't it!)...her "bun" in back is a braided chignon...this is another one that looks so much better in person than in the promo photo...I absolutely LOVE the color! It is a purplish wine color...
I am not sure why she came with the beaded necklace...that big bow at the neckline pretty much dominates! This doll is the only one of my 8 new ones which had a yellowed torso...luckily, the costume pretty much hides it! I had no idea as to how to put on the hat! It is certainly an interesting shape when it is laid flat!
