God damn it, Beatrice trolls us again.
When she first arrived, her alternate outfit had accidentally been left out. Fortunately, we were able to solve that problem quickly and easily, and the alternate outfit arrived a few days later. We thought, with everything finally in hand, Beatrice was done trolling us.
Nope. The alternate outfit included a decal of the one-winged eagle on Beatrice's leg, which we had to apply ourselves. It wasn't bad enough that the decal was shiny (who has a shiny tattoo, seriously), it also started flaking off as soon Jey tried to cut it out. Then, when I tried to apply it to her leg, it ripped in several places. I thought I was able to salvage it, because I was able to piece the pieces together without it looking obvious that it ripped, but once it dried and Jey tried putting Beatrice's clothes back on, it shattered as soon as she tried tugging the stockings up! What's worse, for some reason, Volks decided that it would be a perfectly good idea to only provide one, so you had to do it right the first time or you had to either bum another one off someone who didn't need it or buy a new alternate outfit altogether.
Seriously Volks, WHAT WERE YOU THINKING? /AVGN.
But Jey and I devised a way to overcome our new problem, and we were able to make it look better than that shiny not-tattoo Volks provided! We found a reference for Beatrice's eagle, colored it in, resized it to the right size, and printed it out on print-your-own decal paper we found in a hobby store. It was much stronger than the one Volks provided, and looks a lot better because it actually looks like a tattoo and not some shiny thing. Ha, Beatrice! Beatrice: 5, Us: 1.
Beatrice is a Volks Dollfie Dream Beatrice.
