My mom gave this doll to my three year-old daughter as a gift. She is quite cute, although the only thing she has in common with the character in the movie is the color of her skin and hair.
Additional boots (or shoes) and clothing aren't sold separately. This doll comes with one skirt, and her bathing suit type thing is molded and painted. It took a lot of searching, but I did eventually find out that the Equestria Girl dolls fit the same clothing as middle Blythe and Pullip dolls. Rainbow Dash's legs (just like the other dolls in this line, but apparently not the rainbow powered one) end in pegs. On the plus side, she can stand independently while wearing her boots. On the down side, having only one pair of boots-- and no feet-- defeats the purpose of having removable boots. That said, Bratz Kidz shoes fit the pegs.
To summarize so far-- Hasbro doesn't have additional clothing or shoes you can buy separately, but, if you're willing to do some searching, knitting, or sewing, you can buy or make your own.
I made a skirt and a shirt, found some Bratz Kidz roller skates on ebay, and then.... my daughter broke Rainbow Dash's leg off. I can't get it back on. This time searching just got me other people bemoaning the same thing-- no advice on repair. That's a lot of time and energy put in to a doll that can so easily but irreparably damaged.
Edited to add: Using a variety of functions on a Leatherman tool, we were able to get the leg back on. It is possible, but not easy.
I gave three stars because I actually do really think the doll is cute, and my daughter loves her. I will update if I'm able to get the leg back on.
