Glam Addict Official Review

Okay, finally back home for the night and now I can do a proper post!  Sooo… let’s get started.  What can I really say except she’s probably the best doll I’ve bought in quite awhile.  Absolutely stunning right out of the box and nothing needs to be done to her! Luscious red lips, long raven hair and bright green eyes… ahhh…  And the black & white patterned dress = LUV.  The red obi style belt fastens in back with 3 hooks and then there is the lace thin belt that goes over that with a hook in front and a tie.  Also comes with a skinny black belt and 2 bags.  First is a little flower patterned clutch and second is a fabulous pink & black bag that I totally love.  3 bracelets.  1 hammered silver one that is awesome and 2 small cuffs, silver & red.  Now that brings us to the shoes, which I was most excited about.  This is the only thing I was a little underwhelmed by.  

First off the black shoes do not really fit her.  I don’t even know how to describe what’s going on with them and I hope it’s just my pair and not everyone elses.  Well, first I should say I only tried them on with the stockings, so maybe without them it will be better.  It’s like where the arch of the shoe is doesn’t match the arch of the foot so they never fully fit the feet.  I don’t know.  The red pair is gorgeous, but I just can’t do straps if I can’t slide the foot in with them already done up, which I can’t with these, so I won’t be struggling to get them on and through the buckle.  That’s just a personal thing for me.  The pink shoes I LOVE.  fabulous design and I was excited about the no-heels.  I actually got her balanced on them with one foot in front of the other, so it is possible, but you’ll probably drive yourself mad trying to do it. Or you’ll get lucky and wham-bam she’ll be balanced right away.  Hat & fur – just not my thing because you know I’m a casual redresser.

But the doll itself is just amazing… even the hubby was shocked by her looks, in a good way.  Right away he said she’d be a Holy Grail for me if I hadn’t gotten her in the lottery.  So true hubby, so true… and now to the pics! (more on flickr)

    Perfection! I knew you’d give us the best pics, and you didn’t disappoint.

    I noticed the problem with my black shoes too, so it’s not just you. I didn’t use the stockings either. Oh, and the hammered metal cuff is really loose. If I’m not careful, it drops off. Not sure if it’s supposed to be that way? No matter, I love her!

      Thanks Crystal. And thanks for letting me know about the shoes. It’s a shame really. My cuff was loose too but just squeezed it a little and it closed enough to stay on.

      I so wish the convention collection was more like this. Well, then I would’ve spent a ton more though.

    Shug,
    You and GA are a perfect match. Your shots are so wonderful and they are holding me over until I get mine. Enjoy your new muse.

    You totally rocked her photos ShugaShug!!!
    I’ll say it again. You created art with her.

    I also had trouble with black pumps. They went immediately on Ayumi who loves them. The pink shoes are fab and my fav. The hammered cuff fell off as soon as I put it on so I tightened in between my fingers and heard a “crack!!!” …but all it did was snap it smaller. Don’t want others to try this and have theeirs break but it worked like a charm on mine.

    Okay, so yesterday I saw some pics of her on flickr and was a bit relieved, ’cause I liked her more on promos. Now, I fell off the chair and don’t want to get up, not to look at your BETTER photos than promos, LOL. This doll is GORGEOUS and you nailed that photo shoot!!! Congrats!

    I have to say when I first saw her I was not that excited about her. You should be working for IT! Your pics are awesome! Beautiful job. She looks fantastic!

    This doll is so beautiful. I was one of the ones that didn’t win Giselle in the lottery. I will keep looking until I am able to have her in my little hands. Congrats on winning her!

    Your pictures are gorgeous and ALMOST make me sad that I didn’t get her. I originally wanted to get her when I first entered the lottery. But I didn’t win. I was sad and even posted that I wanted to buy her. But the more I looked at her, the more I realized I didn’t want or need her as much as I originally thought. The accessories are another story….LOVE them.
    I am not going to look at any more of your pics because I don’t want to want her. I’ve convinced myself that I’m saving for my current pre orders and for my future pre-orders! LOL

    My friend won me this girl! :3 We looked at the shoes too and had the same problem. I think we tried them on my FR2 Jolie Elise but i cant recall their fit, they fit an obitsu, but not a volks. They also fit pretty well on my Azone Pure Neemo Small flection body. So now that im home I want to get some pictures of my girl now :3
