ohh.... I want those clothes! ^-^
The blue pattern looks like an odd choice for the clothing style (reminds me of jeans I keep seeing somehow), but kinda neat. I like the hat. Frilly.
..... back to the old souldoll look, I guess. ^^;;; I prefer Paris. Comeon, Imagined Paris - !! -_-;
Well, he seems a little more stylized than Paris...I've been hunting through the Souldoll site and he seems like an original sculpt. Perhaps a more experienced eye can tell?
Caro: Oh...I...I rather...adore him...Simon...he looks like a Simon...
GJ: Yes, he's lovely. Those leaf-shaped eyes...they're a little close together...
Caro: <affronted> Criticising Simon won't earn you love points with me. Besides...look at his nose.
GJ: He's bitterly expensive.
Caro: <cackles quietly>
Caro: <humorously> Lose a few lattes. They are bad for you anyway.
GJ: No...NO...NO ECKSTINE!
I think Eckstine is the Barriel sculpt. There's only been a OOAK from this sculpt, if I remember correctly.
The Barriel sculpt?
That's not good...
And I just realized that he looks like a daft, fruity student of my favorite 19th-century wizards. Some mad Goethe-like soul who stepped right out of Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell. Oh, why did I think of that? Oh no...backstory forming...began as a theoretical magician and was seduced, all unwilling, by the wonders of practical magic...named for Simon Magus...father of heresies...
This is bad.
**snickers** Looks like you beat me to posting about this guy. Ah well, that's what happens when I get email notices while off slaving over a hot grill at work.
Ohhhhhhhhhhhhh I Like him!!!!
Clothes dont look very "wizardy" to me.. looks more like a cowboy style.. but hey I could lve with that.. after all its his face thats important to me!
I've never been a fan of souldoll's facemolds (except maybe Paris, but not really...I mean...if I HAD to choose)...
But, just out of curiosity, how tall are they?
- skin : cream skin(not normal)
- height : 60.5 cm
- bust : 26 cm
- waist : 21.5 cm
- hip : 26.5 cm
- foot : 7.9 cm
Right off the website.
Also, please see the Request forum. Hitasura and I did a big comparison of MSD dolls and SD sized dolls including Souldoll.
I've just been informed by Souldoll (via their Q&A board) that Eckstine is indeed a new sculpt. I wonder if they'll release a basic version...that would be less expensive.
Caro: <mumble mumble> --cheapskate.
GJ: Caro Conure, do you have any IDEA how much he costs?
Caro: True love does not care.
GJ: This is not good.
Not my style but pretty ^^
I love his hat!
just a reminder that since this dolls' outfit ALSO contains a swastika, that our forums rules have been updated, and just to remind people, since it's a new rule, not to discuss nazi debate, etc, here. No one has yet, thankyou.
<sigh> Yeah, it took me awhile to notice that. IF I go for this boy, I will ask them to leave it off.
i gotta start a fund so that when beautiful limiteds pop up i can get one. i love him. i can see a wizard in that, but then again I'm thinking a D&D wizard not typical fantasy wizard.
GAH! I am in love with his nose! That's the boy-doll nose I've been looking for!!!!!
;-; General edition, puh-lease!! MY Clara may need a boyfriend and I think he fits the bill >XD
Souldoll has responded to (apparently) a flood of emails regarding the Nazi symbol on Eckstine's clothing, most notably a brave and gently-worded comment from Ute Helena. Here's Souldoll:
Well done, Souldoll.
(Oh, Mandiiv: I love his nose too.)
Wow, that's very good news!
wow, that good of souldoll to do that.
I think they've shown admirable sensitivity and courage. ^_^
