The Tara Reid Melody doll comes wearing shiny pink bell bottom pants with red stitching and a double gold chain belt. The pants are removable with Velcro in the back and have a sewn on snap to attached the turquoise blue and black animal patterned faux fur tail. On top the doll wears a shimmering angled red and black striped sleeveless crop top. A clear elastic bands holds it up at the shoulders and is removable with Velcro closure around the back. Around the neck is a gold chain with a Pussycat charm attached. The shoes are clear soft jelly plastic platform hi-heeled slip on sandals with turquoise blue plastic straps. Underneath the pants the doll body has molded white hard plastic panties.
The face is painted with blue eyes and dark rose pink closed lips and brown eyebrows. Pink plastic dot post earrings are in the ear lobes. The head is covered with very long butt length wavy rooted hair and the black velvet rhinestone decorated pussycat headband with turquoise and black animal pattern faux fur ears holds it all back. The hair is very soft and comb-able. Matching bendable faux fur snap on tail and velcro closure wrists bands complete the look.
The doll is made with an unusual soft squishy rubbery plastic body, even the stomach torso area and buttocks are pliable. The soft rubber appendages include click joint elbows, knees and hips (move only forward and backwards). Head moves side to side and tilts but doesn’t lock into place. The shoulders are ball joints that move in every direction. The soft waist and torso bend and twist but don’t lock in to any position. The finger nails and toes have a painted dark rose pink manicure.
Comes with a black, silver, and white plastic snare drum with 3 dimensional detailed decoration. The drum stand is silver and is separate from the drum. Two off-white plastic drum sticks with matching plastic holders that clip on the wrists complete her instrument. A red and black hand microphone complete with switch detail attaches to a silver, gold, and black microphone stand are also included in what the box calls “ROCKIN’ EXTRA Instrument included”.
