    2. * What did you order?
      Cynthia Blademaster in Brown Tan axson resin, with unpainted option parts and wig

      * When did you order?
      September 9th, 2012

      * Was the quality appropriate for the price, in your opinion?
      Yes. She has the smoothest, silkiest resin. The face up is beautiful and the option parts are awesome. I purchased the wig as a placeholder but it was only $10.

      * Did the item look like the sales pictures?
      Her face up appears more natural and less "done up" as it appears in the promotional photos, but looks great. Her skin tone is less yellow and richer than what is shown in the promos.

      * Were you satisfied with the product?
      Yes!

      * Tell us some of the positives and negatives about this product (optional)
      Positive:
      - Beautiful smooth resin
      - Great face up

      Negative:
      - Face up does not appear exactly as in the photos. This wouldn't be an issue but I've seen two other owner pictures of Cynthia and both have the more glamorous face up. In particular, mine is missing the purple eye shadow.
      - For whatever reason her flat feet are a slightly different color than the rest of her body. Her heeled feet, and the skin portion of her option shoe parts, have a consistent color.
      - I found the peanut pieces in her elbow a little wobbly for my taste, but it was an easy fix with sueding.
      - Her torso has an extra resin piece inside that hampers posing. With some maneuvering it can be bypassed.

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

      I have a review on the WithDoll female body if anyone is interested! It can be found here:)
       
    3. * What did you order?
      WITHdoll Rosa in Rose White skin, large bust, and faceup.

      * When did you order?
      October 7, 2015

      * Was the quality appropriate for the price, in your opinion?
      I bought Rosa during an event, so she was marked down by 15%. I do think that at full price she's a bit expensive for her quality, especially when considering the limited mobility of WITHdoll female bodies. But she's a beautiful sculpt, nonetheless.

      * Did the item look like the sales pictures?
      Absolutely.

      * Were you satisfied with the product?
      Yes.

      Her faceup is magnificent. I love the shape of her lips and eyewells. Her arms and hands are also sculpted beautifully.
      However, since her eyewells have a unique shape, it's hard to position eyes in there properly.

      * Would you buy more from this company?
      Yes. I love their Egon sculpt.

    4. * What did you order?
      JWD Aiden in real UV skin.
      * When did you order?
      Ordered October 2017
      Arrived January 2018
      * Was the quality appropriate for the price, in your opinion?
      Very much so, yes. He is really nice for the lower price.
      * Did the item look like the sales pictures?
      Yes
      * Were you satisfied with the product?
      Yes.
      The inner part of one of his wrist joints broke after only a fee weeks. But Withdoll send me 2 new wrist joint pieces.
      * Tell us some of the positives and negatives about this product (optional)
      Pros: His skin is a really beautiful color. He is nicely sculptured and really nice for a ''cheaper' doll. He has magnetic wrist so his hands can be easily removed, which is great when dressing him.
      Cons: His hands had small tabs that should twist and secure his hands to his wrist. These broke of on both two sets of his hands very quickly. This results in his hands not sitting as secure, but it doesn't matter that much. His elbow joints movements are a bit limited for a double joint.
      * Would you buy more from this company?
      Yes
       
    5. * What did you order? SWD Vera (School of Magics Vera, though I did not order a faceup or the outfit)
      * When did you order? May 5, 2020 , shipped May 25, 2020
      * Was the quality appropriate for the price, in your opinion? Yes, got her on the 20% off sale as well, amazing price for the quality. Resin feels great and the RWS tone is amazing. They have an alternate pair of hands and heel feet by default as well, which makes it all the more mindblowing on the price.
      * Did the item look like the sales pictures? Yes, as much as they can.
      * Were you satisfied with the product? Very much so

      The good is I think her resin quality and tone are fantastic, especially for the price. I haven't put her much through pose paces, but so far she's a steady stander and just looks amazing.
      The neutral is her hands have a bit more webbing between them, in large part due to the shape/closeness of the fingers, than I'm used to for an SD sized doll. I'm not considering this a defect, but it's a delicate part I'll have to think about sanding.
      The bad is that on unstringing her for some blushing and doing her face-up, I realized the parts were not marked at all as far as left and right go, and the elbow and knee peanuts seem to be reversible as far as up/down. I looked at the parts and can't see anything that stands out to me to tell me how she's been mirrored or if she's been mirrored at all. It's pretty confusing and I'd have to give a warning to someone buying the new SWD girl body that it's completely unmarked inside the joints. While doing this I put the parts into the foam slots in her box so as not to mix them up.

    6. * What did you order?
      Special re-release BWD Ace, Astronaut set (no painting) - on sale, to boot! I think it was $20 off.

      * When did you order?
      Last couple of days in March, 2020

      * Was the quality appropriate for the price, in your opinion?
      Absolutely~ The resin is smooth and even, has a really nice tooth, and the color is even throughout as well.
      There does seem to be a bit of a difference with some hand pieces, but it's negligible. (I got an unexpected set of fist hands included, they look the teensiest bit darker than the rest of the doll)

      * Did the item look like the sales pictures?
      100%
      Since I got him blank, there was no faceup or blushing, but the outfit and accessories were perfect.

      * Were you satisfied with the product?
      So, so much!

      * Tell us some of the positives and negatives about this product (optional)
      Pros:
      Doll is structured great - mechanically, he's one of the most poseable dolls I have. I can put him into a wide range of poses, and he keeps them well.
      Hands and feet are fairly easily swapped out. It's not as easy as FL's system, but WD used long s-hooks, so it's not too hard.

      Cons:
      His head is suuuuuuper heavy. So he kind of tilts his head forward really easily, and it also makes him top-heavy, so I wouldn't leave him standing or even sitting upright unattended.
      His cute little space helmet was surprisingly unscathed, but the cloth was superglued to the plastic part. The first time I put it on him, part of the cloth peeled off, but it wasn't super bad, and I can glue it back down.
      His special boot feet are a little too smooth for him to stand in. It's just smooth resin, with no treads or anything, so they slide around on any hard surface. I may add a little rubber, or hot glue tread on the bottom, and that's a simple fix.

      I wrote more about the negatives, but they are honestly super-tiny issues, and are definitely waywayway less important than how ADORABLE he is! :D

      * Would you buy more from this company?
      Absolutely! I am already keeping an eye out for when they release (or rerelease) another BWD astronaut set!
