Nadja Rhymes "I Slay"

Ever since her introduction in 2006, I have been a fan of NuFace Character, Nadja Rhymes.   I love that she represents a woman of color with a richer, deeper skin tone.  Since her revised sculpt, I have purchased all three versions and couldn't wait for "I Slay" to arrive.

Here is a full length photo in the box.
And a poor quality closeup.  (Sorry about that - I didn't shoot enough closeups because I was in too much of a hurry to get her out of the box!)
Here is a photo of her standing next to the accessories.  She comes with a cool ring, simple gold stud earrings, a skull bracelet (gold tone version of the Be Daring Imogen's bracelet), and a gold tone skull necklace.  She has stretch thigh high boots which require a little effort getting on, a choker, and a fake fur coat.  She also had a purse on trend and an extra set of hands.
The promo photos of this doll leads the buyer to believe the doll with have thick wavy hair.  Unfortunately, the hair is actually that extremely kinky hair like Quiet Storm Annik which is difficult to manage and style.  I just put a black rubber band on it and pulled it back from her face.
I think she is a beautiful doll and definitely represents the 2016 Moschino line that she was based on.  My favorite part of her are those gorgeous gray eyes.  I figured she would redress well ...
So, let's give it a go.  Here she is wearing "Life of the Party" from the 2008 convention.  The boots actually fit and she can stand in them with a little assistance.  The blouse is a little loose, but I was able to get the skirt to close and the belt to hook!  I worked with her hair a little more.

And a close up to end the post ...

I really LOVE this version.  I think IT is on to something with this new eye screening and I am so thankful they got rid of those weird eyebrow lines from last year!
