Gold Gown Barbie was one of my last 2013 doll purchases. The doll arrived a couple of weeks ago and had not been deboxed until yesterday.
Her complexion and hair are not as pale and light as the above image suggests. She is a lovely doll, but had I not needed to use my final Barbie Fan Club Reward, I doubt I would have purchased. The Reward is the reason she was $11.94.
I like her Goddess head sculpt, which I do not have in this complexion. Her facial features remind me of actress, Naya Rivera, which is another reason I purchased this particular doll.
Note: The above photo was taken using my iPad camera. This post was written from that device to test the Blogger app This method is okay for quick posts that contain few details, but I doubt I will use it often. I am too old school and often too wordy. Plus the low resolution iPad photos do not offer as much detail as photos taken with my digital camera.
It is still a decent option for a quick post.
