Long story short, Rosabella is here today and Kizuna isn’t.
Long story… not made short… The tracking on Rosabella originally had her scheduled to be here on Friday. Then it updated and said Saturday. Imagine my surprise when she was delivered today!! Awesome! On another note, My Smart Doll, Kizuna, had a delivery attempt today, and I now have to wait until I get a free moment tomorrow to go get her. At least she’s here….
The dress is all one piece. The dress contains elbow-length sleeves, a brown fluffy/fur collar, a yellow insert, and a two-layered skirt. The bottom skirt is plain yellow, the top is a sheer layer printed with golden roses.
HERE IS THE BELT!! We were all so worried about whether she would come with this little thing. It’s amazing how a small piece of plastic makes me so happy! The belt is this strange green color with red painted roses. THANK YOU MATTEL!
In keeping with this wave’s female signature dolls, Rosabella has a ring/bracelet set in gold, but she wears hers on her right hand (unlike Faybelle and Darling). I can make out a rose and leaves? I think? And then there is the chain and the bracelet.
In comparing skintones, I think Rosabella matches with Darling very closely. I’ve also included a photo of her next to Cerise (the
diaries bookmark indicates that they are friends). I included this comparison to Cerise in the event that you are interested in Rosabella, but don’t yet have Darling.
Rosabella’s box indicates that she is the daughter of “Beauty & THe Beast.” The back of the box indicates several things about her personality. She likes standing up for beasts and all creatures. She has this amazing ability to see through a person to see who they are (but the diaries make it seem that she is really just seeing their emotions).
And that’s Rosabella! (Whoops! I forgot to photograph her bag! She carries a golden purse that looks almost like a book. It has a painted rose on the front at the latch)
I am a little shocked at home much I ADORE this doll! She is just so beautiful! Rosabella (and Faybelle) were the two dolls I wasn’t sure of. I hadn’t seen these two at Toy Fair and were a little nervous about their release. I think Faybelle and Rosabella are the big winners of this wave! Bunny, Alistar, and Darling are all cute, but honestly, I’m torn between Rosabella and Faybelle for top favorites of this wave.
What do you think? Is Rosabella the Beauty of your collection? I don’t think she’ll be a Beast to find.
