I received my Ellowyne Wilde Nevermore last week. And despite my original snotty review/impression she’s really lovely. My criticisms still stand, however Nevermore is really a compelling production. When I opened the box I was really surprised by her big head. I like it. And firey redheads always sell me, and I giggled when I put Hortencia & Ellowyne on the stage together and noted they are using the same batch of fire red saran. Nevermore’s outfit has lovely attention to detail, excellent scale, and is lined in pink ^_^ She comes with a stunning little capelet, but I like the slenderness without it. Her hair is really lovely, and a nice compromise from some of the other Ellowyne up-dos that I thought were a bit too formal or blah.
However, I still think her face is a bit on the dewy-eyed bland side, and prefer the arch snottiness of Hortencia & Euphemia. I’m contemplating a repaint. Though my hand isn’t nearly as fine, I might be able to squeeze a pout out of her!
