- Date of acquisition:
- March 11 , 2017
- I ordered her through Alice Collections and she arrived probably 2 weeks after I ordered her. so she came very quickly . I'm assuming both companies are chinese / china but I could be wrong.
- Reason for choice:
- Saw her and fell in love immediately and knew what I wanted to do with her as far as character design.
- Best Points:
- I like her ears.
- Worst Points:
- I'm not going to lie she has a lot and the list is long. She's one of my first dolls and I'll probably keep her for sentimental reasons and to practice faceups or some mods.
To start She's not the nicest sculpt and in my personal opinion, the company could improve a bit. I'm not sure I would recommend this company because honestly there are nicer sculpts out there.That are in the same price range.Especially compared to other companys like Dollchateau and dollzone who have beautiful sculpts with nice sculpting and posability . The quality in detail is just better for the same price. Part of me believes because of this the dolls could be lower in price. ( of course I'm saying this with the knowledge of the current prices. Which may change or fluctuate.)
Head wise: looking at the pictures online verse what I got .I don't feel all the picture's gave a clear impression or that enough angles were taken. They don't really show you how much her lips protrude out like duck lips and in some picture's her nose looked rounder and smoother. She kinda has an ugly side profile to be honest and some of the online pictures were a bit blurred . She is my only doll that I've ever gotten that I felt did not look exactly like what I thought I was getting from looking at the pictures online .I thought she would have more of a flat rounded shaped nose but it's more pointed and triangle in shape. It's honestly not really sculpted much at all like a nose and is a triangle shape. I own a few dolls from D.C. That are smaller then her and still have better sculpted noses and features in general.
The company also sent the wrong hands with her as I mentioned before .
Moving down further ,her biceps should really be a little bit longer . It's not too bad until you bend her arms completely towards her face making her arms look short and stumpy. Your bicep is slightly longer then your forearm but hers are equal in size making it look off when fully bent . the other positions are fine as the joint add the length missing .
Her body is not symmetrical on the sides and if you turn her around it's the same with her rear end, Its lopsided.
The hip joints are not well thought out either and are just horrible . Overall the sockets are too deep and I know the body is made to be unisex. The girl having a slit and a bump for the boy but....Ehh . I don't think the slit looks good and the part is just too long for the girl version . I'm contemplating sanding it down .
the joints are uneven / unsymmetrical and have points on them that scrape inside the hip sockets. I guess the purpose is to catch the rim of the butt to help her sit other wise she can't make a complete L when she does sit.
It's not great. Her posing isn't great because the hip sockets are too deep and the shape and points at the ends of those joints limit movement . If you compare to other company's like D.C. or dollzone dolls where its more shallow and rounded for good posability and movement .It's not well thought out and it doesn't look good.
When she's in the sitting position there is gapping on the sides and you can see the space on each side of the thigh looking into socket.Because the joint is more tubular shape and comes out of the socket and catches to the rim to help her sit. Again nothing is symmetrical and It looks uneven when you do put het in a seated positions. Her legs also have this pulled in look that looks funny .Almost as if I was squeezing them together. For a moment when I first unboxed her I thought I got two left legs or something.
Lastly I did already know this about her so I don't care about it and it works for the types of shoes I want to make her . Her feet aren't well sculpted. They are practically bricks with a somewhat toe shape at one end .
Ultimately I would not buy her body again if I had a choice. Its badly designed and sculpted poorly and quite frankly for the $ cost. I think it is too much for what you get . I like her head sculpt if only I could soften and slightly improved her mouth and nose features but For now I hope to do that with pastels when I work on her face up.
Im still messing around with her faceup and practicing my face up skills on her sculpt.
