Thank you so much to everyone who ordered Pure Body without a single photo, acting solely upon your faith in DollShe craft dolls. We also thank you for your patience and understanding regarding the delay in production. As many of you know, the original sculptor DollShe-ki-yong's health problems prevented him from working as quickly as he wanted. The original model is about 90% complete. The completed original model will boast a high level of delicacy and sculptural integrity. DollShe-ki-yong is hard at work, putting in the final touches. We do understand the inconvenience the long delay has caused, but we ask once again for your kind understanding. Please consider the wait a painful part of the creative process that will result in a beautiful and high-quality doll. *For details on placing a pre-order, please refer to the relevant announcement. This is what sets DS18M Pure Body apart. The most notable characteristic of DS18M Pure Body is the delicate rendering of muscles for a more realistic body line. A simple feature, invisible from the outside, has been added to the interior the joints to allow for more delicate mobility. You will be able to put the doll--even when it is fully clothed--into a wider array of poses. Our focus was convenience. The range of mobility will be similar to that of the older 700mm version of Hound. "Poses can be arranged in line with personality." You will be able to experience firsthand an upgraded mobility structure by DollShe craft, the first company to create multi-jointed dolls. We stayed faithful to the original joint structure while enhancing the natural contours of the body. *More details will be provided along with photos comparing Pure Body with the old DS18M body. We will continue posting updated photos thereafter. We will extend a 50% refund to customers who placed pre-orders for DS18M Pure Body through Dollstown.
