Outfit number one is a pajamas set, which MGA has made plenty of for Lalaloopsy dolls. In addition to the one I've got they had this one, this one for the boys, this one, and this one (the last two are fairly new). There's also a cute little bathrobe, which I think counts as a pajamas set. My set is NONE of these; it's this one.
A trifle washed out, but I believe you get the idea.
The seams have hot pink piping, which looks awesome with my Blossom's pink hair. The front seam also has three round, white, nonfunctional buttons.
Back on track. The sleeve cuffs are bright orange with more pink piping.
Outfit number two is one of the swimsuits. In my last Lalaloopsy-themed blog (okay, here's the link again, haha) I discussed the merits of the new swimsuit and the design flaws of the older one. So guess which one I ended up with?
This is the older swimsuit. Remember that the new one has an inner tube.
LOL, talk about eating crow! Frankly I was so desperate to give Blossom a halfway-decent wardrobe that I really didn't care about the reviews on Amazon. After all, it was mostly kids that had problems with those fiddly little ties. I am not a child, and I've spent my life tying fiddly little ties into sturdy little knots, so I bought the swimsuit.
Anyways, let's take a look here. The swimsuit itself is orange and pink, with pink ruffles on the top and skirt. The top has one ruffle layer and the skirt has two.
The shoes are plastic, but otherwise match the swimsuit.
Now, third outfit! This is the newest one; I got it on the same day that I got Katniss and Miss Kite. It is a party dress, or something in that vein.
Pepper Pots 'n Pans (another Lalaloopsy character) wears. They're not exact matches, but still close. This dress looks simple, but looks are deceptive. The fabric is pink and white gingham with silver threads shot through. The silver gives the dress a cheery sparkle.
some other Lalaloopsy dolls. Picking Blossom Flowerpot as my favorite Lalaloopsy was definitely a smart move!
Before I wrap up this review I want to note that Lalaloopsy clothes, or at least the ones I have purchased, are of very good quality. The fabrics that MGA uses feel substantial (with a possible exception of that Spandex swimsuit, but then again Spandex NEVER holds up), each of the outfits are dripping with cute little details like buttons or ribbons, and they're all sewn well. Even that swimsuit is sewn well; the Spandex (or whatever fabric that is) may not stand up to the test of time, but at least it won't be falling apart at the seams. If you have one of these dolls, I highly recommend that you go out and get some new duds for her if you haven't done so already. And if you purchased one of the boy dolls...well, I hope there are some more boy outfits available besides that pair of skeleton pajamas!
I'm definitely going to keep my eyes peeled for more outfits for Blossom, but three is enough to keep this dolly glutton satisfied for now. My mother said that Blossom needs a coat for this winter and I agree with her, but I can wait. Instead I'm going to try to focus on finding outfits for Tristen (my Moxie Teenz doll) and particularly for Sophina (my Moxie Girlz doll). If you follow my blog regularly then you know how I've bemoaned the lack of accessories and clothes available for Moxie Teenz. As for the Girlz, my Sophina came dressed in a very basic little nightie and bare shoe-feet (she was a Dollar Store doll, if that tells you anything). She looks cute, but I feel sorry for her not having anything cute to wear, so I want to find something else. Both Moxie Teenz and Moxie Girlz clothes are difficult to find in my neck of the woods, and since Moxie Teenz are discontinued I want to put together a nice wardrobe for my Tristen. She's too pretty to be a single-outfit non-entity!
Lastly, I'm going to set the stage for the next topic. I have a new outfit for Meygana, and it's cute but it's got a very minor problem. Okay, in my eyes it's a pretty big problem. It may bug some of you too, or it may fall under the "oh whatever, Moony's just nitpicking again" category. Either way we'll talk about that next time. I wasn't assigned any homework this weekend so next time may be tomorrow.
Happy Black Friday,
