I got Cecile on Ebay and she is just so beautiful! I've been slowly collecting a few American Girl dolls that each have a different face mold. This doll has the Sonali mold which I think is much more flattering than the Addy mold!
Addy is on the left and Sonali on the right side. It's a subtle difference but I think Addy's chin and jaw look too masculine, along with her narrow face I think it makes her look kind of like an old lady. Sonali's face mold is much more child like, chubby cheeks and a cute little smile.
Here's my Cecile when I first unwrapped her. Her hair is tangled and messy and her vinyl is shiny.
Her body and limbs are perfectly clean though and I don't think I'll do any other repairs on her!
Here she is after I brushed and re-curled her hair!
Here's a nice before and after picture
After adding Cecile to our collection we have four different face molds.
(Can you tell my daughter likes pink? She has all the dolls dressed in pink, even Cecile is wearing a pink skirt!)
Starting from the left we have Amy (JLY #37), Josefina, Elizabeth (Julie with an eye swap and new wig), Jess, and Cecile. I'm not at all fond of the Addy face mold, and I don't really care much about the rare Asian face mold. The only two I still want to get are Marie Grace and Kaya.
