- Face-up artist(s):
- Mystic Kids - Company Default
- Date of acquisition:
- June 22, 2015 (my second BJD!)
- Reason for choice:
- I fell in love with the face sculpt! I was looking for a doll I could afford at the time including face-up prices and I came across this. This holy, precious little guy. Not little, but you get the picture. I was surprised it ended up being one I could afford since I fell in love with the face first.
- Best Points:
- Body is incredibly smooth and aesthetically sculpted well. I like the slight aberrations showing this was likely hand sculpted - slightly asymmetrical features, just like real life. I quite enjoy this feature. However, the eyes do not look flattering when in some positions or when the camera is angled in some positions. I have tried several eye types and sizes and faced the same issues, though it's not a dealbreaker by any means to me and I'm sure some eyes out there would work with this better than the ones I have. For anyone curious: the eyes look great when facing forward, up, or up and to (his) right, but look awkward and misplaced up and to (his) left.
- Worst Points:
- The body does not pose well - doesn't sit up straight without bending torso, elbows while double jointed have limited range and hands cannot touch face. The hands feel smooth and like they do not convey much emotion, making them awkward to pose in pictures.
Personally I like when the top of the lower part of the torso joint is smooth and round, but this one has a corner to it. In my opinion it changes the pose-ability and makes the body look boxy when posed, but doesn't matter much with clothes on. It won't hold a pose by itself well but should be fine with wires or a grip-slip material.
