Before she was the Disneystore classic Merida doll. She has a full facial repaint, her hair is boil permed and restyled. She is wearing her original outfit from the Disneystore.
I would say, the before doll is prettier.... but Merida isn't exactly about beeing pretty, right? I hope you like her
And Merida isn't about being pretty, so I think you did her perfectly.
how did you get the curls so tight??
But yeah, in my opinion, I do believe that Disney's products tend to be more accurate and higher quality than Mattel.
