I really wanted to love this..but a few concept/quality issues
on December 28, 2012
This doll had the potential to be so cool but it just fell short. Let me start off by saying I was so stoked to see another release of Robecca especially so soon after her initial release. I like the concept of Robecca and the first doll was soooo beautiful. I like this version but there are just a few things that missed the mark. Lately I have been having issues with the quality of monster high dolls. It seems like they have facepaint or hair flaws. Because this doll seemed like the hardest to get, I bought two of them just to be sure I got a "good" one. Well, that didn't quite work out. On BOTH dolls there are large gaps in the hairplugs giving her "bald spots" especially on the left side of her head. The plugs were also uneven giving a "wavy" effect to her hairline. I also personally don't like the colors on this doll. I think that the light lavendar accessories and the lavendar lipstick really clash with the cobalt blue in her hair and the blue on her dress. It feels like they should have gone all purple tones, or all blue tones in my opinion. The saving graces in this doll, however, are her accessories. Her copper colored minature tophat and her booties are to die for. The wedge style booties have loads of little gears as the sole/wedge. Man I would love to have a pair of those in real life!! But again, just like Lagoonas shoes didn't look like ballet shoes, these don't really represent "tap" shoes...just saying. I also love the detailing on her bag. It is a cylindrical shape with rivets, gears, and a gauge. It reminds of an oil can or even a water heater. It is cool, I just wish it was copper like her headband, instead of the lavendar color again. So my overall take of this doll is that it had some amazing concepts, just poor execution and color choices. I hope that we see bigger and better things for Robecca in the future.
