- Date of acquisition:
- March 9th 2012
- Purchased direct from Iplehouse during their Christmas Sale in 2012.
- Reason for choice:
- This is the doll that got me into the hobby. A friend had showed me some BJDs, and I was looking at a few with interest when I came across Claude. He simply was exactly my character, and I knew I had to have him. Those kind eyes and that playful smile sold me on the sculpt.
- Best Points:
- I love the sweet smile he has, and how beautiful his body is. I find a lot of male BJDs to be very thin and slightly effeminate looking-- which is beautiful in it's own way, but not representative of the character I wanted. He has a gentle, beautiful masculine charm to him.
- Worst Points:
- While I adore the face sculpt and the aesthetics of the Iplehouse body in general, he is not a very good poser. Being from '12 his resin is much smoother than more recent dolls, and this includes inside his joints. While he stands quite well in certain positions in others his ankles buckle easily or he simply cannot support his own weight. I don't regret buying him, but I wish I'd researched more. Also a strange size to shop for clothing-wise.
- Head Sculpt:
- Normal Skin
