So, I've been looking at a lot of websites recently, and I realised there are some things they do which definitely make me nervous! Retouching their photos, so you can't see the little issues with the doll's sculpts. Taking multiple pictures of the doll in the "same position". Only leaving one picture to use as reference, only one pose. Putting extremely frilly clothes, or clothes which cover up things you want to see like how the neck attaches to the head. Having a face up artist, who they don't employ, face up their dolls, and then having a bunch of people doing face ups however they wish. I really wish doll companies would be a bit more straight forward I guess? I know there are obviously going to be differences between the doll I see on the screen, and the one I hope to have in my lap, but sometimes the difference is scary! I, personally, wish the doll companies would have one of their artists do a basic face up, take pictures from front, profile, back, from below, from above, you know so I could get a basic idea of how the head attaches to the body, how the body looks, how the head itself looks. Then perhaps a few shots showing how flexible the body is? Not thirty pictures of the doll in a overly obscuring outfit, in the same position at varying distances. I appreciate all the pretty pictures on the websites, but when does that really go too far? When does it start being you admire the doll on the website, but would never purchase? Is this an issue for anyone else or am I just paranoid?
