The Hannah Waddingham doll comes wearing an outfit similar to what Rebecca wears in the Ted Lasso show, but the champagne blouse was usually worn with a tight black skirt rather than pants.
The blouse is a peach/champagne satin silk-like billowy sleeveless blouse with two plastic snaps to an opening in the back. It has a V-neck with a long collar to waist tie in the front The blouse pulls down over hips to remove it. It is tucked into well tailored black pants in a sturdy wrinkle free material. They open in the back with a metal snap.
The face is painted with bright blue eyes, dark pink lips, and pink blush. The light blonde hair is pony-tail back into a double very Rebecca like bun. The side parted front of the hair is curled back and thread tied in place over the left ear. The hair is stiff with product to keep it all in place.
The plastic gold dangle tear drop shaped earrings are not easily removed. They are hooked inside and require heating the head to pull them out without damaging the sculpt. Two gold plastic bangle bracelets come on the right arm, but unfortunately they do not stay on unless you keep them polyband-ed in place.
The shoes are black plastic pointed toe high heels. The stiletto heels are very soft and bend/collapse easily. The large light grayish ivory purse is soft molded plastic and includes alligator skin details and opens.
The body is articulated at the neck, arms(double jointed), wrists, hips, and knees (45º). The body and feet are fixed. One hand is clutched to hold the purse and one is straight. Unfortunate the nails are not painted. The arms are muscular like Rebecca’s.
The doll comes with a stand and a Certificate of Authenticity.
