As you can see, there are a lot of mold lines that weren't cleanly removed. They ruin the piece imo. I wish she would have been cleaned up more. Also the small areas in the headpiece are rough, and it makes her look like cheap plastic. If there would have been slight more attention to these areas, she would have been a 10. On a positive note, she is larger than I expected and well painted.

There are so many pieces to the costume that it is understandable there are the flaws, although there should not be, but despite the mold line problems I think this is a great piece. I kick myself for not getting this at my LCS when they had it. Congrats dec.

I got this one a while back and will be selling it. The pictures made it look really beautiful, but in person it looks like a cheap lump of plastic to me. I really wish this was done in resin instead.

I agree. I wish they would have cleaned off the edges of the pvc/plastic and sanded down the seams better. She is still cute, but she could have been way better.
