- Face-up artist(s):
- Kaye Wiggs
- Date of acquisition:
- Summer 2009
- Purchased the head direct from Kaye. #8 of 11 heads she made. My friend Maryfairy & I bought heads & bodies together that summer. Mary ordered the bodies for us from DT & we put the dolls together in KS in Sept. once the bodies arrived.
- Reason for choice:
- A Nettle was the first custom doll that I saw at a doll meetup in KS in 2008. I fell in love with her immediately. The ears, the face, the delicate body size just blew me away. I got my ebay account set up after seeing a Nettle posted for sale spring of 2009 & kept a close watch on the auction but did not win. After that Mary & I contacted Kaye & were fortunate that she was willing to sell us a pair of her fine beauties.
- Best Points:
- The cute face sculpt & her adorable ears.
The collar bones & muscle definition in the sculpt of the arms & the long delicate fingers.
- Worst Points:
- The eye shape makes it tricky getting eyes set in properly & the S hook can easily knock them out of whack. The old style body has a left leg kick that can be bothersome & of course the "kanckles" or large knobby ankles to house the ball joint.
It has come to the attention of forum staff that Dollshe Craft has ceased communications with dealers and customers, has failed to provide promised refunds for the excessive waits, and now has wait times surpassing 5 years in some cases. Forum staff are also concerned as there are claims being put forth that Dollshe plans to close down their doll making company. Due to the instability of the company, the lack of communication, the lack of promised refunds, and the wait times now surpassing 5 years, we strongly urge members to research the current state of this company very carefully and thoroughly before deciding to place an order. For more information please see the Dollshe waiting room. Do not assume this cannot happen to you or that your order will be different.Dismiss Notice
