1. It has come to the attention of forum staff that Dollshe Craft has ceased communications with dealers and customers, has failed to provide promised refunds for the excessive waits, and now has wait times surpassing 5 years in some cases. Forum staff are also concerned as there are claims being put forth that Dollshe plans to close down their doll making company. Due to the instability of the company, the lack of communication, the lack of promised refunds, and the wait times now surpassing 5 years, we strongly urge members to research the current state of this company very carefully and thoroughly before deciding to place an order. For more information please see the Dollshe waiting room. Do not assume this cannot happen to you or that your order will be different.

Les Galatées Idylle - is she on topic?

Feb 28, 2017

    1. I tried looking around but I still have no idea where I should post this, so I hope I'm not making a complete tool of myself. :V

      But anyway, I recently got this adorable girl who is made by a French artist who markets herself as Les Galatées:


      I tried checking the criteria and I believe she meets all the requirements to be on topic. It's just that she's made by an independent artist and I don't know whether or not she has submitted the doll on DoA. Does that automatically make the doll off-topic if it hasn't been submitted by the artist, or...?
      Here's her site with more pictures of the sculpt and other info: http://galatees.imaginailes.fr/en/

      Thanks in advance and I'm really sorry if this is the wrong place to ask this.

    2. The best place to find out would be Ask the Moderators. Independent artists are usually given on or offtopic status on a case-by-case basis.
    3. Ah, I see. I was just really confused whether this would go here or ask the mods. But thanks, I'll go ask there!
