So I've been meaning to unbox the I <3 Shoes Cleo that I'd bought a little bit ago, especially since I've been working on my Loki sculpt! I like to have Heath and Abbey posed with Pony!Loki, Heath because of his sculpt and Abbey because of her ice- but I think Cleo would also be fun to have with Loki because of her character! xD

Here are some pictures of the box art and her before unboxing:

Box art

She had some intense helmet hair. It was pretty much solid with the amount of glue in it! I washed it out with warm water and a tiny bit of dish soap. I don't usually try to wash all of the glue out, I think it's ok to leave a little bit to help manage the hair. One weird thing was that when I started to wash the hair, some of it ended up coming out in my hands! It wasn't attached to the head, it was actually glued to the other hair. I think it was actually just cut from the bangs based on the location, but it was weird. She didn't have thin hair, or bald spots or anything like that, so it was ok. Disconcerting when I was washing it though and I wasn't sure where the hair was supposed to be!

Now here she is, unboxed with freshly washed hair. :3
She comes with a lot of accessories because that's what what sort selection that doll comes with, but my most favorite part is her black bracelet. It's a tiny black snake eating it's tail. xD
What are you looking at?
I am gorgeous

She comes with an extra pair of earrings.

More earrings for me?

She also comes with sunglasses, a shopping bag (it's just made of paper though), and two extra pairs of shoes.

Shopping trip!

Contemplative
I wonder what else I should buy...

I've been having fun watching the Olympics today! I'm all about figure skating, so that's been exciting. I really liked Jason Brown's performance, I was so sad for him when he fell! For other single performances I was really impressed by Julia Lipnitskaia's program. So beautiful!

I also watched some of the other events, snowboarding and the biathalon. I started the day by watching the women's Japan vs Sweden hockey game.

Currently watching Helix!

I had the exact same thing happen with my I ♥ Shoes Cleo. Washed her hair and just had what seemed like clumps coming off. The ends were also so uneven post-wash that I had to give her a good trim once she'd been dried and combed.

I had the clumps too, I was so nervous that I was going to end up with bald spots or something! I evened up the ends a bit, but I think I should go back and do a little bit more trimming now that her hair has dried. :3

Yeah, I had to wait for her to be dry and brushed/combed to really do a decent trim-job on her ends. And then sort of wait another day and do it again, because Cleo demands perfection. ^_^;

I am also all about the figure skating!!

Did you see the end of the team free dance event? The Americans, Canadians, and Russians were all beautiful and awesome!

It's just so fun to watch! :D The figure skating is totes my favorite part of the winter Olypics. :3

I did, the free dance was really lovely! :D

I'm behind on Olympic watching (God bless my DVR, seriously) but I did watch Jason skate his little heart out this morning. The Russian guy whose name I'm not even going to try to spell is SO GOOD though, I wonder if anyone can beat him. I'm excited to see who wins what medal in the team event. So far I've managed to avoid being spoiled for that.

I loved Jason's performance! :D
Evgeni Plushenko is really amazing though too! I think it's really amazing considering his age (not that he's old, but for the sport) and the surgeries n stuff.
I'm glad you've been able to avoid being spoiled!

I haven't been watching the Olympics, but I've been keeping up with the commentary on Facebook and Tumblr. It's quite funny how the announcers keep making some events interesting.

That's neat that you're still getting Olympic info from elsewhere! :3 I'll have to go see if I can find some stuff on tumblr now (I guess that isn't the sort of thing that gets into my normal feed!).
