I think...it might be okay.... :DLu~
Okay, now I'm a bit excited. The research trips did it for me. :-D
Me too! :)
I'm excited about the new Beforever merchandise. I'm really wanting to see if Samantha gets a new collection. On the other hand I'm sad to see what will be leaving. I guess I'm bitter sweet:(
Happy to see the fears about Samantha's hair were misplaced. Plus it is pretty apparent the AG marketers are listening to the fan complaints/worries because the video addressed some of the more common facebook complaints.I am just hoping the new meet outfits are available separately because I really want Kit's. Not sure about all the blue in Josefina's--it makes it look gaudy instead of understated. But I'll hold final judgement until release.
Hi! I just wanted to ask about the complaints and worries. Which ones are you speaking of? Thanks. :)
I'm glad Kaya's outfit isn't changing, maybe that means they'll leave her alone? -Addy's meet dress is okay, but where does it fit in her stories? I mean, what about her shell necklace that belonged to her grandmother? -Samantha's meet outfit is horrible. She looks like a BARBIE DOLL. -If that skirt with BLUE POLKA DOTS (?!?!?) is really Josefina's new meet outfit, then WHAT WERE THEY THINKING?!?!?(but also, why does it show a regular Josefina next to Caroline and Kaya?) When does a girl from that time wear a dress that looks so modern??? ("accuracy") -Kit's new meet dress is okay, but I don't really care for it, and again it looks like I could walk into a mall and buy that dress today. J-Julie's new meet outfit is cute though, but it's the only one I like. -Also, about the books. Why collapse it into 2 books? That is so boring!!! It's not like the books were long or anything. They look almost like the mystery books, and those were for girls ages 9+. Are they trying to exclude younger fans? I didn't see anything wrong with the books. I am so glad I got Molly's books from Amazon. I really want the rest of Kaya's, but that won't happen. Another thing, will the dolls come with their first book, 2nd, or their journey book? SO CONFUSING!!! Although, the only good thing is that afterwards I will be expanding my MAG collection. Overall, I hate beforever (it's not even a word, at least historical characters is two words!) and there will be nothing for me to buy after this happens, except modern things.
Well, I have all of Julie's books, but I did pre-order her Journey book on Amazon. I would really like her new meet outfit. I hope they expand her collection. (and I have hung off of a cable car!)
i love that they changed samanthas hair to the old one and what is the new books?
I am unhappy with the new sketch drawing of Samantha. She looks far too modern and I am worried about what her meet dress is going to look like. I never got her before she went into the archives, and if she comes out looking Barbie-ish, that would really turn me off. There needs to be some kind of important difference between the historical characters and the contemporary ones (MYAGs and GOTYs). So some of why I'm seeing is disappointing, but I don't want to pass judgement wholesale. I will say that I don't mind "Beforever" or "Be forever" or whatever it is … as a term, I mean, for the historical lineup. There could be plenty worse things, I think that's pretty tame.
What were the fears about Samantha's hair? I don't recall hearing about them.
Addy's meet outfit- For Pete's sake, she just escaped slavery, what is with the taffeta? Addy would never even dream of having such a fancy dress!Josefina's meet outfit- Poka-dots? Poka-dots? Are you serious!? She looks like a clown, not a hard working new Mexican girl. Samantha's- It's okay. Not insane about it, but I like the old meet better. 'Julie's- It is really cute. Kit's- Eh. Rebecca's- It really suits her. I am still not grasping the whole idea of beforever, but I am excited for a new stuff. I really liked Samantha's plaid dress in the other video. I am hoping that they won't screw anything up.
hrose97, on her book cover she had a very modern headband. A lot of people, including myself, were worried Sam might not have her classic half-ponytail and bow. But from the pics it looks like she does.
Am I the only person who's madly in love with Kit's new meet dress?!? That is all kinds of cute.
Is that Samantha in the pink dress?! Is that her new meet outfit? As I love pink, I approve. :)
It is Samantha! It looks like a soft pink dress with a white eyelet overlay or trim and burgundy bow.
I actually love his BeForever concept now that I have seen it a little bit more. I do like the new stories, and meet outfits. I like how they are appealing to modern girls, as well as keeping it (mostly..) historically accurate. :) -aginparadise
