She was carefully boxed in an outer shipper that kept the box nice, and wrapped in tissue.
When you slipped off the sleeve, the box opened to this:
I am usually not a box fan, ripping them out of their prison as fast as I can, but I really like the way they did this one, and may leave her in there for a bit.
This is a bit closer up. Hard to get a good photo in the box, but overall the quality seems very good, and I love the tribute while retaining the high fashion quality. This may be the one time I don't mind the "helmet" hair! LOL. I will probably still clean it and fluff it when I remove her from the box, but here it works.
Overall, I am pretty tickled with her.
