These gorgeous black resin shoes have pink bows and tiny pink rhinestones. They are a tight fit over the full-set stockings, but fit perfectly on bare feet. They will not fit over socks or stockings made with thick material.
For this Angela release, DearMine offered a choice of long wavy wigs in three different colors (lavender, honey and blonde). I am quite happy with my selection of pastel lavender! It is a very delicate color and works well with the outfit. The wig fibers are very soft and the fit is excellent. I particularly like that the fringe does not need to be trimmed – it is the perfect length for Angela’s forehead.
The deep blue glass eyes provided with this full-set are quite big at 18mm. They fill the eye sockets almost completely and take very little putty to affix. I was initially concerned that they would be too large, but they fit perfectly, especially for a big-eyed look.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – DearMine employs some of the most talented face-up artists! Their face-ups are whimsical, colorful and beautifully executed.
Spring 2014 Angela’s face-up has a somewhat different color palette than my previous DearMine bjd full-sets. It has a more muted, earthy look and does not have any shimmer. I am especially impressed with the brushwork on the eyelashes and eyebrows! To complete the look, high quality black eyelashes are used.
The ears are blushed with an artistic pattern in the center and soft blue tones on the edges.
While the doll herself is not the focus of this article, I’d like to dedicate a few words to her. Angela arrived perfectly strung and with minimal seamlines. The resin is very light pink in color and, like most DearMine dolls, has a toothy texture. Included with the doll are ears and tail, which attach to the body via magnets.
This full-set did not disappoint. Everything is well-made, fits the doll perfectly and the face-up is masterfully executed. Going forward, I will continue to buy DearMine dolls preferentially with their full-sets – they are absolutely worth the cost!
