1. 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.

Melissa Hargrave

Impldoll/April Story
Head Sculpt:
Impldoll Azalea
April Story senior girl body
  • Face-up artist(s):
    Impldoll (default)
    Date of acquisition:
    Head: February 1st, 2017 - Body: February 25th, 2017
    Head purchased second hand from MaryamDN
    Reason for choice:
    I loved the serious look of the Impldoll Azalea sculpt and thought she would fit my character well, but I didn't think the Impldoll body would be good for her so I decided to do a hybrid. I went with the April Story senior girl body because her height was what I was looking for, plus she had a good-looking small breast option. I did not like the look of the Impldoll body's smallest breast option.
    Best Points:
    The sculpt has such wonderful features, especially lips and nose! Her nose is large and almost a bit romanesque, which is rare for me to find in a female sculpt and I think it suits her perfectly. The head looks great on the body and the body's sculpt is gorgeous and very aesthetically pleasing.
    Worst Points:
    The body doesn't pose too well, the torso joint preferring to arch backwards rather than take on a neutral pose. She can't sit terribly well and her legs are a bit of a pain, but I am willing to accept aesthetic over posability.
  • Eyes:
    Kokdoll Beetles glass eyes (small iris with low dome)
    Favourite colours:
    Fashion style(s):
    Formal business-wear

    Offsite roleplay:
    This doll's character is not available for offsite roleplay.
    Mel is arguably the scariest of the Hargrave siblings. Although she is the youngest, she exists with a constant “no-nonsense” attitude, her face rarely relaxing from a stern expression. When she was younger, she often made it a point to prove that she was just as tough and dangerous as her older brothers, but once she gained her reputation as one of the most dangerous women in Los Dios, she let her actions speak for her. And if anyone dares to question her ferocity now, they usually end up with a bullet in their head.

    Most would agree that Mel is also the most intelligent of the Hargraves. Although Colt took power, she is the one who directs him on what to do with it. She can be diplomatic when she wants to be, knowing when the right time to make a deal or when to strike down her opponents in the most strategic manner. Due to her efforts, Genesis flourishes, becoming much more than just a gang, but a very lucrative business.
