Ultra Basic Esme

After preordering about a month ago from Tonnerdirect.com, Ultra Basic Esme is here!  Her price, new facial screening, 13 points of articulation, and the Dreamgirls complexion prompted the order. 

 

After preordering about a month ago from Tonnerdirect.com, Ultra Basic Esme is here!  Her price, new facial screening, 13 points of articulation, and the Dreamgirls complexion prompted the order.

After removing UB Esme from the ultra basic, see-through plastic box, I examined her thoroughly, then compared her head sculpt with the other two Esmes that preceded her in the collection.  

Basic Esme, RTW Esme, Ultra Basic Esme

L-R:  Basic Esme (redressed), Ready to Wear Esme (redressed), and Ultra Basic Esme

Of the three dolls that I own - Basic Esme (2000), Ready to Wear (2002), and now Ultra Basic Esme - RTW has the nicest sculpt and facial screening (in my opinion).   I favor her textured tresses over the bone straight hair of the other two.  Ultra Basic's skin tone is the most realistic.  The other two have gray undertones with Basic Esme's hue being my least favorite.  Ultra's wrist articulation adds to her appeal. 

Still available in the Ultra Basic line is SydneyMei Lei has already sold out!

Now to find clothing and shoes suitable for Ultra Basic... anyone know of a blowout sale for 16-inch doll fashions?
