    7. I mostly just want to say how good the quality of all the iplehouse clothing I've bought is.

      I have practically all the NYID clothing, and all of it is fitted perfectly to the NYID body (be careful you arn't buying the old YID-size). Furthermore, my mom (who is a seamstress) noted that the sewing quality on the clothing is amazing. They have things like invisible zippers, good hemlines, lining, and pretty much the same amount of seams and fittings real (good quality) human clothing has.

      * What did you order?
      Clothes, an Emilia mold doll, and a couple wigs
      * When did you order?
      A long time ago (over a year ago, but all the products are still available)
      * Was the quality appropriate for the price, in your opinion?
      Yes
      * Did the item look like the sales pictures?
      Yes, exactly
      * Were you satisfied with the product?
      Yes, except for the wigs, they seemed to fit really small (maybe I got the wrong size?)
      * Tell us some of the positives and negatives about this product (optional)
      The have new clothing out on a fairly regular basis
      * Would you buy more from this company?
      Yes
       
    8. * What did you order? in the first order a JID Owen in grey skin, with a fur wig and a pair of jeans. second order was a JID fantasy Violet. blank but with the horns.
      * When did you order? first was in august, second in october
      * Was the quality appropriate for the price, in your opinion?
      yes :)
      * Did the item look like the sales pictures?
      yes, and owen is better looking in real life
      * Were you satisfied with the product?
      yes absolutely :)
      * Tell us some of the positives and negatives about this product (optional)
      both dolls look gorgeous, good resin color and quality. the magnets for the horns was glued in, a very positive surprise. and the jeans is lovely

      * Would you buy more from this company?
      yes
       
    9. Okay soooo.... I got my new clothes from Iplehouse and I feel like I'm going to get tarred and feathered for saying this.... but I'm not impressed with the Dark Garnet coat set. I mean it's nice... but I don't think it's worth the money. Don't get me wrong - it's worth some money - but I probably wouldn't feel so bad if I had paid closer to the $120-30 range. It's probably because I'm not a connoisseur of the kind of material the coat is made of, but I just thought it could have had a lot more detail to it. I would have liked to see the pattern that's on the inside edge of the coat more. It doesn't help that this is - in no way (unfortunately) - Sage's style at all. He really looks like Louis from Interview with the Vampire. It's very dark. Even in sunlight. Which a lot of people are into the Renaissance look and I respect that, but Sage is a very happy person by nature. He would probably look much better in a pair of flip flops, khaki shorts, and his shirt hanging open. (or maybe I'm just sick of Texas heat) Also I found the coat to be a pain to get on - worse than usual for coats of this nature. The shirt kept getting bunched up above the elbow joint, and then caught in the joint sometimes. I know I could have taken off his hands and reached up there, but why when the jacket is specifically designed so you don't have to - or so I thought. I spent just as much time getting these three articles of clothing on as I did getting the 10 pleather pieces of the Dark Knight outfit on. The vest isn't a show stopper either. Honestly... it's a vest. Sure it's got some macro rose design on it, but I think it would have been a great opportunity to embellish with a (gold?) decorative thread as I've seen in other works. Besides the fact that the shirt has puffy sleeve cuffs, I really like the look of the shirt. I think I will definitely adapt that design for some of my own work. Overall... it's okay. 4/5

      The Dark Knight set on the other hand... hold on a second, let mama cool down.... is just plain sexy. The promo pics do not do this outfit enough justice. Once you see it in person... wow. I was very impressed by the quality of the material and the durability as well. Lets face it. Pleather/vinyl/whatever this shiny sexy material may be is not easy to get on - even for humans. But it went on fairly well. The difficult part actually... was the belts. Not the ones that go around the torso... that was a snap. The thigh belts. Thunder thighs here was built a lot like me in the fact that nothing goes around the circumference of these thighs without a fight. I spent more time just figuring out how Iplehouse even got the belt on his right thigh to cross like that than anything else.... I eventually gave up and assumed it's barely in the belt buckle. Because it is. I also bought the new boots that are shown in the promo pics. They are really nice. They are actually flexible! They aren't hard at all. It makes them really easy to get on and once they are on you can't tell that they are only made of a thin material on the top. Pleasantly surprised. I think my favorite part (everyone's favorite part) is the subtle sex appeal in this outfit. The mesh cut out that ends right above the pubic line leaving you to wonder is hot. It's sexy without being slutty. I'll admit that without the belts.... he kinda looks like a slut..... or a sex slave... :wiggle The only downside I actually find to this outfit... he cannot sit. At all. At least I haven't found a way yet, but I'm pretty sure it's going to be tough for those hips to bend because the belts lay on them. This outfit was meant to just look good. And it does a damn good job at it. I took him over to my grandmother's house this Sunday to show off his new outfit. This conversation ensued...

      On that note, I'm pretty much sold on this outfit. I think it was well worth the price and despite it's limited functionality I think it was still well worth it. And who cares?! It's like the fashion designers of Batman and GI Joe had a baby and asked Adonis to model it. Why would you want him to sit?! Did I mention how good it makes his ass look? 5/5

      * What did you order?
      SID Man Dark Garnet Coat set and SID Man Dark Knight set
      * When did you order?
      07-28-2014
      * Was the quality appropriate for the price, in your opinion?
      Dark Garnet set - not really for $172. I think they could have done so much more with it for the price, but I also feel that Iplehouse wouldn't jip me because everything else I bought from them has been great quality for the price. This has been the only let down so I'm thinking ...maybe it's "user error" - I must not know the worth of it?
      Dark Knight set - very appropriate for $129. I couldn't be more pleased. And it's a "full outfit" meaning top and bottom (even though it's a one piece) - still.
      * Did the item look like the sales pictures?
      Dark Garnet set - I thought it was a lot darker in person. But the vest was slightly prettier in person. Also I think I will try wearing the shirt in an "open" manner like Edan does on the promo pics (and everyone else has) to see if it makes a difference. I'm trying not to give up on this (I spent so much >_<)
      Dark Knight set - Yes. In fact I had to look at the sales pictures constantly to figure out how to put on all the belts *_* My mother thought I bought Sage an S&M outfit at first....
      * Were you satisfied with the product?
      Dark Garnet set - No unfortunately. I can't say I completely regret buying it. I just regret spending that much money on it. It's hard to explain. I think it's a beautiful piece of work, but I guess I was hoping for something to "wow" me for a price tag of $172. I'm in limbo between selling it (and buying more IH clothes!) or establishing a use for it in some vampiric-esque theme :|
      Dark Knight set - Yes! More than satisfied. It is exactly what I had been looking for. When I saw it, I immediately thought of Mari's Assassin set and thought these would look great together and now I am convinced they will ~^-^~ Not only is it badass looking - it's daaaamn sexy too.
      * Tell us some of the positives and negatives about this product (optional)
      See above
      * Would you buy more from this company?
      Of course! Iplehouse is a wonderful company and I love their dolls and have been satisfied with almost all of their clothes. I think I will do more reviews if people find it helpful. I have included some pictures and a link to my flickr that shows some more angles of the outfits. Granted, these were just taken with my iPhone in my mom's backyard, so please don't expect much. But I wanted to show, especially on the Dark Garnet set, how the shirt comes together and a little more detail on the coat that you can't see in the promo pictures very well.

      Thanks!

      * Did the item look like the sales pictures? Yes, though she surprised me with how little she really is. With so many details I was expecting something bigger.
      * Were you satisfied with the product? Very much so.

      *Negatives: Expensive, I got 15$ off, although that, it's still high. But I think it's completely worth for what IH did.
      I don't like the headcap, it's really easy to come out and it's quite hard to changed her flat feet to high-heel feet (it's too small)
      * Would you buy more from this company? Yesss XD. IpleHouse is a wonderful company XD

    13. * What did you order?

      Iplehouse Aria in NS with faceup A, the brown wig she is seen in her photos and the swan dress set

      * When did you order?

      Sorry, I can't remember the exact date but it was definetely around 28-30th November.

      * Was the quality appropriate for the price, in your opinion?

      Aria, yes. The wig, yes. The clothes? Not so much.

      * Did the item look like the sales pictures?

      Yes, Aria is so beautiful. Even prettier than her pictures. I just adore her X3
      * Were you satisfied with the product?

      YES!! But I wasn't satisfied with her wig or the clothes. And...you know, Iple ain't cheap!

      * Tell us some of the positives and negatives about this product (optional)

      Aria positives:
      - The reason I got her was because I like dolls who are compatible with different styles, as in, they are able to wear different wigs, clothes, etc. Aria really pulls off different looks!
      - I cannot stress this enough and people are probably fed up with me now but I really think her sculpt is beautiful
      - Her detail is amazing

      Aria negatives:
      - This is probably the SID woman body and not the doll itself, but I made her sit once, like truly ONCE so I could pop on her wig. Now if she doesn't stand up properly, she bends over in a second >_>

      Wig positives:
      - Very great quality, the fibre was smooth and silky

      Negatives:
      - It was too big for her head, it kept slipping off her way too easily
      - It was also quite heavy

      Swan dress positives:
      - Cute dress
      - Fitted the SID body well

      Negatives:
      - The fabric looks a bit cheap >_>
      - The skirt has loose threads which keep popping off

      * Would you buy more from this company?

      Yes, I would. I would definitely buy their dolls. I have bought some clothes and wigs before previously and it really depends. Some clothes are excellent quality, some unfortunately are not that great. Same goes for Iple wigs.

      [​IMG]
       
    14. What did you order?
      I've gotten Dexter, Mari, Eric, Zera & Gentle Freezia from IH. I also got some outfits, shoes & wigs.

      * When did you order?
      First was Dexter in 2011. Last was Zera in Dec 2014.

      * Was the quality appropriate for the price, in your opinion?
      Yes. My most pricey outfit is the EID suit - IH commissioned it from Freedom Teller & it was TOTALLY worth the rather hefty price tag. I also have Joseon era shoes for EID & SID - love them.

      * Did the item look like the sales pictures?
      Yep

      * Were you satisfied with the product?
      Yes

      * Tell us some of the positives and negatives about this product (optional)
      Love the realism of the doll sculpts - but the posing leaves something to be desired. Plus as others have mentioned the EID elastic is not strong enough. The wigs are decent - I prefer Monique Gold but I did get three perfect wigs for my boys :D

      * Would you buy more from this company?
      Oh yeah - I have a very long IH wishlist. They have given excellent customer service!

      [​IMG]

      This is the EID suit on my Harry - he's Super Hero size!
       
    15. I just ordered Tedros with the stubble faceup. The skin tone on your doll is amazing.
       
    16. * What did you order? Man SID Dark Knight Set :dance
      * When did you order? 09/04/2014
      * Was the quality appropriate for the price, in your opinion? Yes~
      * Did the item look like the sales pictures? Yes~
      * Were you satisfied with the product? Very Much so!
      * Tell us some of the positives and negatives about this product (optional) The product is well made, maybe they could of added a hook at the top of the body suit.
      * Would you buy more from this company? Yes, it's hard to find clothes that easily fit for Iplehouse men and I've noticed the quality of their products varies so, it's sort of a gamble. :sweat

    17. * What did you order?
      JID Kyle - Model body w/ Mobility joint - Peach-Gold skin
      * When did you order?
      July 2015
      * Was the quality appropriate for the price, in your opinion?
      Yes! I even got him on sale, haha. He does have noticeable seam lines but I don't know if that is partially because of his unique resin color. I haven't ordered from IH before so I don't know if seam lines are common on all resin colors.
      * Did the item look like the sales pictures?
      Yep.
      * Were you satisfied with the product?
      Yes, he is so pretty :D the resin color is gorgeous and unique, the body feels very solid and posable. He is strung very well and the engineering & little details are great, especially the way the S-hook fits into his head and into the groove on his neck, which make it very easy to remove the head. The mobility joint and the grooves in his thigh socket are also cool features to improve posing.
      * Tell us some of the positives and negatives about this product (optional)
      Positives: Sturdy, overall high-quality feel; realistic and detailed face sculpt; thoughtful engineering, innovative joints & tight stringing; wonderful resin color.
      Negatives: Obvious seam lines; complex joint system makes him intimidating to restring :XD:.
      * Would you buy more from this company?
      Yes! Not too many of their face sculpts fit my style, but they just really seem to know what they're doing in terms of quality, reasonably priced, and their fairly wide array of resin colors is nice.
       
    18. * What did you order?
      SID Felix, EID Aurora and EID Leonard.

      * When did you order?
      In year 2012 for both Felix & Aurora, 2018 for Leonard.

      * Was the quality appropriate for the price, in your opinion?
      Yes :)

      * Did the item look like the sales pictures?
      Pretty much.

      * Were you satisfied with the product?
      Yep.

      * Tell us some of the positives and negatives about this product (optional)
      My Aurora is tan skin and there is a tiny spot of discoloration at the side of her head but it's easily covered by the wig, so it doesn't really bother me.
      As for Felix and Leonard, no complains at all! They were perfect :XD:

      * Would you buy more from this company?
      Yes, I would.

    19. * What did you order?
      SID Eric in normal real skin

      * When did you order?
      October 2015 but it was layaway

      * Was the quality appropriate for the price, in your opinion?
      50/50

      * Did the item look like the sales pictures?
      His face yes.

      * Were you satisfied with the product?
      I was a bit disappointed at the body type but it could be my personal preference.
      Also his seams were really obvious.
      Update:no not satisfied due to the fact the chest piece smack dab in the middle has a dark spot not related to clothing. I think its inside the doll? Not sure what it is and it will not clean off with magic eraser

      * Tell us some of the positives and negatives about this product (optional) Positive: His face is gorgeous and he comes with lashes already applied and the normal real skin is unique. He stood right out of the box like a boss and they really pay attention to vein detail.

      Negative:his body is clunky and before and after restringing he was not very pose able. His head cap magnet was weak as well and lining up his joints and ankles were quite annoying he was just not that flexible. The blemish on his chest is also upsetting since I paid top dollar for this doll and he is far from great quality.


      * Would you buy more from this company?
      Possibly but not very likely as beautiful as they are I am not a fan of the body type they offer.

      No
      * Were you satisfied with the product?
      No the doll is beautiful but the seam lines are very obvious but it was not worth the money I spent for the whole set.
      * Tell us some of the positives and negatives about this product (optional)
      It did not come with his clothing or accessories as advertised I contacted iplehouse through support by email and q&a forum but I have not gotten 1 reply I Opened a case with them recently hoping that would get their attention so I can figure out whats going on. Havent got contact in four days.
      * Would you buy more from this company?
      Absolutely not, with my first doll I was iffy but I still like him so I but decided to give them a shot again but after this second experience I will not order from them again.
