Color Infusion Rebel Spirit - short review
Her facial screening is really well executed. It uses a lot of metallic gold--in her eye shadow and lips--it gives her face a lively and dimensional look.
Her clothing has excellent tailoring, and the accessories have great details. The belt is a single piece and closes in the back with a hook and eye. She's wearing a jacket and a sheer silk chiffon blouse. Both the jacket and shorts have functional pockets.
The rest of her accessories are to die for: oversized sunglasses, a star shaped gold ring, earrings, purse with magnetic closure, sheer navy socks, gorgeous shoes (which are gorgeous but have no closures, so they were difficult to put on--a tiny shoe horn would help), and lots of colorful bracelets.
Plus, she uses the new style of stand: a waist gripper/saddle combo--and the waist gripper is perfect for dolls with shorts.
Now... to her hair. Well, I was a little disappointed after seeing her promo photos and the doll from IFDC. In the box--I should have taken before photos--she had a swirl/bun in the front which was just not executed well. I was able to rinse it, and if you wanted, you could straighten it into a cute asymmetric bob. The color is really nice.
I restyled mine--with gel, and not enough, apparently, after I see the photos up close and all the loose strands through the macro lens, LOL. Probably it would have worked better to sew the bun in place. I imagine most collectors would end up restyling anyway.
All and all, she's adorable. I love her. She's still pretty widely available for $125, and is a limited edition of 300.
