I have had Scaris Abbey for a while now, but I've only just now decided to open her. I'm going on vacation for 2 weeks in July, and it seemed appropriate to take her as my travel doll.
she comes in the slim Scaris box which features a cartoon of her and the other three dolls in the budget Scaris line.
here she is with the liner slid out of the box. as you can see she doesn't come with much. other than the clothes she's wearing, she only has a little overnight bag. no brush or stand are included.
Abbey wears a one shouldered dress that has a purple splintered ice pattern on it. it's rather short, with a white faux fur trim around the hemline.
she wears a neat translucent blue icicle belt. I really like this accessory and I hope to see it again in whitish color plastic.
the above picture also gives a pretty good look at her overnight bag. the main body of the bag is made of the same translucent blue plastic molded to look like ice blocks (think igloo). the handle section is black and connects via hinge to the main section. this allows the bag to open slightly, but not enough to really be useful. above each of the fake buckles is a molded snowflake.
Abbey wears her signature ice crystal necklace in a translucent purple plastic. she also comes with translucent purple ice crystal earrings, that actually match each other! yay! I really like them. (also parental warning: her jewelry is small parts!)
Abbey also comes with some pretty amazing shoes. I had some trouble photographing them due to the beautiful (and highly reflective) pearlescent plastic. they are wedge platform sandals with a strap across the toes and two that cross in front of the ankle. both of these straps have ice flowers molded onto them.
the sole of the shoe is kind of icicle-y and it really reminds me of glaciers when they are calving (ie the big chunks break off). I think these shoes are super neat and beautiful. and to be honest, I stole them for my I Love Fashion Abbey to wear with her dress while on display. hopefully I'll be able to post a pic of that when I get back from vacation.
The Bottom Line:
The Good: pretty Abbey with cool new accessories
The Bad: no stand, some small parts.
The Verdict if you aren't an Abbey fan and already have Skull Shores Abbey, you could probably skip Scaris Abbey and not feel like you're missing out, but I feel she comes with enough new accessories that she's worth the purchase (especially if you can grab her on sale like I did!).
