Will be waiting for your photos Julia!
I've been looking forward to this doll since it was rumored there was going to be a Dia de Muertos Barbie for adult collectors.
First impressions: I am underwhelmed, and a bit sad how this doll looks based on promo photos.
I go back and forth on whether I will buy this doll. I wanted to be "wowed" and I was not.
You know what it is ... it's the hairstyle. I think that's what is bothering me about this doll, those twisty braids. The hairstyle doesn't do the doll any favors in my opinion.
Maybe she will look nicer with her hair partially down.
There is also the face, it's definitely Barbie-ish, as in cute. I was expecting more dramatic face makeup.
The body chosen for this doll doesn't bother me. It's fine that it is Model Muse.
I know people say, just have your own OOAK doll made if you don't like this doll, but not everyone has the money and resources to have their perfect OOAK doll made. So of course we put our hopes in doll companies that they will produce a doll we will love. Sometimes it's a win, and sometimes it's not. I get it.
I love the concept of Dia de Muertos Barbie, and I will buy one. Once I receive my doll, I will gladly share photos here.
Here's to hoping that the production doll looks spectacular.
