Son, I are disappoint. I finally found a 13 Wishes Clawdeen that had eyes I could live with (they're not perfectly straight, but it's barely noticeable and waaaaaaaaaaay better than every other one I've seen) and when I got her out of the box... Oy. Her hair is gross from the glue, has some pieces that are only about an inch long (WTF is that?), and is fluffy on the left side and flat on the right.
She's such a beautiful doll, and it's a shame that the quality of the 13 Wishes line seems to be lacking. I don't usually complain about quality, but it was super obvious with my 13 Wishes Frankie (I had to cut stray long hairs out of her bangs, and re-do her hairstyle because it was all messed up) and even more so here. The last issue is hard to describe; this Clawdeen has a twist that hangs down on the side of her face, and on mine there's a loop of hair that's sticking out of the top of it like it wasn't pulled tightly enough in the twisting process. The only way I can fix this, I'm pretty sure, is to undo the twist, re-do it with the loop included, and do it back up... But I'm afraid to ruin it totally in the process. I shouldn't have to mess with her this much straight out of the box, Mattel!
On the bright side, SO PRETTY. Her light brown hair color is a totally new look for Clawdeen, and the outfit breaks into separates and is AMAZING. Also, her crown is zippers. Such a cool design, marred only slightly in the realization.
