Ellowyne is super easy to get out of the box. Just untie her satin ribbons and lift her out of the box.
Essential Ellowyne Five comes dressed in a white two piece camisole and shorts outfit and lace stockings. She also comes with a pair of designer shoes and a saddle stand. She has a beautiful long blonde wig. Some Ellowyne dolls have rooted hair and some have wigs. I wanted a wigged Ellowyne so that I could have the versatility of changing her look simply by changing her wig. Also, some Ellowyne dolls have painted eyes and others have inset glass eyes. Both are beautiful, but I really love the inset glass eyes and long rooted eyelashes. Here she is just out of her box, still wearing her hairnet and wrist tag.
She has 12 points of articulation (neck, shoulders, elbows, wrists, torso, hips and knees).

Here is a closeup of her beautiful blue inset eyes and long lashes.
This is the little card that was in her box and the tag that was on her wrist.
She has a saddle style stand.
She came with an adorable pair of white designer shoes fit for a princess.
Her wig is super silky, made from saran, according to the WI website. There are two velcro dots to keep the wig securely in place. I'm pulling the wig back so you can see the velco dots here, but otherwise you can not see the wig cap at all. You can't even tell it's a wig.
If you look closely at her ears, they appear to be pierced.
She is beautifully sculpted and stands 16" tall. In person, she seems really big and rather sturdy. Since the Moxie Teenz are just over 14" and Ellowyne is 16", I thought I might be able to get away with dressing her in an extra Moxie Teenz dress temporarily. Looks good from the front, right?
The back is a no go though. It's not even close to closing.
I thought I'd go ahead and do a side by side comparison with my Moxie Teenz Melrose. It's probably not fair to compare them, since Ellowyne is a collector doll and Moxie Teenz are play line dolls. But Melrose is the fashion doll closest in size to Ellowyne (that I have). The difference in size is only 2 inches, but it actually looks like a lot more.
They both have inset eyes and rooted lashes.
Since the Moxie Teenz outfit didn't fit, next I tried Hearts 4 Hearts doll, Dell's outfit. The cut off denim shorts just don't go well with lace stockings and designer shoes though. Dell's clothes are just a little too small also. Like the Moxie Teenz, Hearts 4 Hearts dolls are only 14" tall, so Dell is a lot smaller than Ellowyne.
The color of Dell's floral blouse looks lovely on Ellowyne though.
