- Face-up artist(s):
- St. James
- Date of acquisition:
- November 28, 2007
- All parts purchased directly from Dollstown. Oriental skin head Nov 28, 2007. Paleskin body March 8, 2008. Paleskin head April 14, 2008.
- Reason for choice:
- Elysia was the perfect grumpy looking sibling of idrisfynn's Volks Williams.
I had hoped to put the head on a Hypermaniac Ksy body and so originally purchased the head in orientalskin. The body was impossible to find though, so when the paleskin 15yr body I ordered for my white Volks F-30 head didn't match, I decided to keep it for Pauline and just order her a new head. Probably the only time I didn't want a white doll but ended up with one anyway.
- Best Points:
- Gorgeous weighty resin. A sculpt that has both gravitas and refined detail. The reversed-from-standard hip joints means underwear doesn't get eaten by the hip socket.
- Worst Points:
- Torso joint can only bend back, so no slouching. The body is discontinued so there is no hope of a revised version with double-jointed knees and elbows, which would be nice since she is limited to very formal poses. Her head is a bit large for the body, which makes her hands look too small.
- Head Sculpt:
- 15yr girl
