Dolls Update: Lagoona Blue Skull Shores

Look who I found in a small toyshop in Turin: Skull Shores Lagoona Blue!
Lagoona was my favourite basic character ever since I discovered MH, but unfortunately she, together with Frankie, is quite rare to find in my city, in fact this is the first time I saw her in a shop (except for the Dead Tired version with the aqua spa lamp, which I don't like very much). Since she was the only one left (and was also a bit discounted) I bought her without thinking too much, but I'm definitely not regretting it: she's gorgeous!
This version is quite simple, but it has some nice details: her tiny earrings are octopus and tentacle shaped, she has a little cocktail glass, a tentacle bracelet and the most epic sandals I've ever seen: I love the bubble heels!

What I always liked in Lagoona's character design are the translucent fins on arms and legs, and her blue streaked hair: she looks like a mermaid! This version has a black hairband sewn to the head, but I'll probably remove it, so I could choose wether to put it on or not, depending on her outfit (yes, I've also started sewing some alternative clothes for the dolls, there will be pictures in the future...).
Here is a close-up of her face, her makeup has some glitter details (I also noticed that using the camera flash makes her face look annoyed and a bit evil, while with natural light she has a very sweet smile...)

I'm very happy of this lucky find, even if she's not the first version (which has become awfully rare and costly), she is really a beautiful doll, I can't wait to sew her a new dress!
