Well, the West Coast Event exclusives are now available online. They include:
New Year, New Look (Ellowyne Wilde)
Long Ago and Far Away (Evangeline Ghastly)
I'm not an Evie collector, especially because I don't do the 'goth' thing. Plus, they're pretty expensive. ;-). However, I've seen a few Evies that could have a nice soft look if they were redressed. I'm awfully tempted to get one of those sometime and make her over into a 1950's girl. I think she'd look really cute. But, this Evie has that 'deer caught in the headlights' look that many of them have (which I don't care for). Also, her outfit is unmistakably goth. So, she's not a doll I'd be interested in adding to my collection. I believe she's sold out already anyways, so it's just as well. ;-)
Emma Jean Singing the Blues (Deja Vu)
I've been looking into getting a Deja for a while, especially since I have the lovely Ma Petite Rose ensemble, and no one to wear it properly (Snow White Disney Store classic doll is currently wearing it; she's the only gal around here that it could snap up the back on, and didn't wash her out). Singing the Blues' outfit is to die for, but I'm not crazy about this girl's face. I love her hair, but her red lips are a little too pouty and full for my taste, and paired with the heavily lidded and made up eyes, it makes her look....well, sultry. I don't like it. I'm well aware that the Deja mold already has a pouty lip, but this doll makes it go way too far. It might be the color of her lips. It also could be the angle at which the stock photos are taken. I don't know. But I don't think I'll be rushing to add this gal to my collection. Her outfit? Well, I most definitely want that in my collection at some point.
Hurry if you want to add Ello or Emma Jean to your collections, as it is limited to one per customer for the first 24 hours, and then after that it's anyone's game. Evie is already sold out. I should probably be glad I didn't fall head over heels for any of these gals; since I don't exactly have the cash to spend at the moment. ;-). I'd love to hear if any of you ordered one of the West Coast Event exclusives. Let me know in the comments below; send pictures if you would like, and I would love to post them on here. :-)
