Magnificent Monogram

From Integrity Toys' Monogram line, this is Magnificent. She is my first Monogram, if you can believe it.

In the box, upon opening her, I have to confess I was disappointed. I thought her face very cold, her eyes were set to wide, and her disdain was almost too much. I almost didn't remove her from the box! But I had to keep her gown, so I had to debox. (Plus is was raining, and what else calls you to deboxing dolls like a rainy day?)

After taking her out of the box, it occurred to me she is more like a mannequin than a character, and I really have become attached. Plus, with her jewelry, and her giant closed lips, she is pretty fantastic--cool, calculating, haughty look and all. I think she's pretty darn cool.

I think she's going to be staying for quite a while.

Could use some pressing. But really--shouldn't I do my own clothes first? 
Who wouldn't be able to identify with her expression?
This photo will enlarge (I hope) if you click on it. Check out her left fingers.
