Edge Vanessa arrived earlier this month and I still haven’t made room for her in the cabinet, so here are a few pics of her in the box:

I actually was pleasantly surprised by her, because I was expecting the worst in terms of quality.. but actually she turned out to be pretty nice and even. Just one thing I didn’t like is the odd eyeliner screening on her right eye, but aside from that she is as beautiful as Vanessa 3.0 sculpt can be.


and just look at all that hair! Wasn’t expecting it would be this big..

Her certificate says she is limited edition of 985, which I thought would end up being alot more, as she was made based on preorders of the club members and general public as well.

Vanessa’s accessories:

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to all my readers <3
Here are some festive photos of Most Desired Eugenia wearing Power Couple Erin gown:

NuFace vs Fr2 NuFace vs FR2

Here is the comparison of the old and new nuface bodies alongside the fr2 body (the one I used in the pictures is the first generation FR2 body, which has different knees from the current FR body that was introduced last year.)

 

NuFace vs FR2

I’m glad the nuface body looks rather different from fr2 body, the difference in cup size is still pretty noticeable. The new nuface body has different torso details, but it feels just like the fr2 body in terms of articulation. Arms and legs are identical on both bodies, so the foot size is the same and they can share shoes.

As already mentioned, the biggest difference is the boob size. It’s a little bigger than the old nuface body, but alot smaller than fr2 and the shape is a little squished, I’m not sure if I love it. The cleavage area reminded me of Tulabelle/Teen Poppy, I really wouldn’t mind if that one part was inherited from the fr2 body instead.
The new nuface has wider hips, but somewhat flatter butt.
And also it has a different belly button and stomach area.

From the back it looks more or less the same

The new nuface body also comes with ‘explosive’ feature and it can be taken apart at most joints: upper torso, arms, forearms, legs and knees. I did try pulling apart most of the joints, but I decided against posting pictures ,as i thought they might be too ‘gory’:p
This new ‘system’ has its pros and cons. If you play with your doll alot, like changing poses or redressing etc, sooner or later some of the joints might start coming out of the sockets and you’ll have to keep popping them back in.
Also there’s always a risk that the doll might get ‘loose’ and come apart while it’s traveling, which could lead to some damage, so that’s one more thing to be worried about.
But the upside of it is that if one part discolors or needs a replacement, you can just get a replacement for that one part instead of the whole body.

Which body do you prefer?

Sensuous Affair Giselle was a table centerpiece doll at Gloss Convention and she’s limited to 400 pieces.

I don’t know what’s up with all the horny doll names this year, but anyways, this girl is amazing! I love her natural palette and her well matched light brown (and not notoriously orange) eyebrows.
And comparing to some of the others from the convention collection, she’s really well dressed too.

I’m really glad I got one with nice and even lashes without any glue showing. One thing that concerns me though, is that her head sits really loose on the neck.. I think this is getting more and more common among the newer dolls. What solves it for me, at least temporarily, is turning the head 360 degees, though later on it goes back to being loose again..

Her hair is a blend of platinum and natural shade of blond. It is actually longer than what it appears to be. I think if straightened, it would almost be waist length.
I wish they made a red headed helper version of this Giselle instead of Vanessa, though I’m totally loving her as a blonde as well.

The jacket is probably the nicest part of the outfit. It fits well, and she almost can put her arms down while wearing it..
The blouse sans the bow reminds me of one from Scene Stealer Isha, except the fabric is a bit more stiff in Giselle’s version.
The high waisted shorts also fit really nicely, though they’re so tight, she can’t sit down in them.


The bra is questionable though.


Her jewelry set consists of gold disk shaped earrings and a ring:

and the boots come with zippers in the back, the laceup is ‘non functional’ anyways..

As for the body, I’ll do a separate post with comparison pics. I’m excited to have a new body type because I just like diversity, but I guess I still prefer the original nuface body with more natural looking and non square limbs.. and better articulation.

  • to be honest, I didn't Looove any of the registration dolls. Poppy is sweet, but too tan and colorful for me, don't care for Ollie sculpt and his beard and his 80s nostalgia look, and as for the Agnes, I don't like the screening with the overdefined eyelid creases. She doesn't even look like Agnes to me.. She reminds me of Lana Turner dolls from Hollywood Royalty line for some reason, perhaps because of the stiff expression.  but I still might join with her though lol I'm just torn between 2 base memberships and 1 base membership+Agnes. I really miss those times when upgrade dolls were offered at a lower cost comparing to their usual retail.. for example in 2011, membership with Kyori doll was $140 total, so technically it was just $90 for the doll, in 2012 membership with ready to dare natalia was $145, so not that bad too, and 2012 upgrade poppy+membership was $135 and now it's $170 :/   ×0

    My very first instinct was to place a preorder for her.. but..the more i thought about it, the less certain i was..
    1. first of all, it is Dania. for me, it's not the character that sticks around.
    2. her dress is hideous. actually this might have been the dealbreaker for me, because i do like pale blue eyed dolls with dark hair type.. but that cheap looking dress is more suitable for ITBE line, not a $130 exclusive
    3. she looks alot like Purity Dasha. Not a bad thing, just repetition is pretty boring. Both were club dolls, both had 'original brunette' hair color, both have japan skintone and blue eyes and wear a white sheath dress.
    4. the catchlight in her right eye seems to be missing
    5. possibility that quality issues might not be resolved in 2015
    so all that said...i think i probably should pass.

  • also the new license was announced..
    "The Integrity Toys team is proud to announce a license to create a line of high-end fashion dolls based on the iconic looks and characters of AMERICAN HORROR STORY: COVEN!"
    The first dolls will be unveiled next spring.. and here is the promo ad.. i wonder if the dolls will be more disturbing than what we're used to horrorstory

    I only watched one episode and was rather unimpressed by the show, but if this was the line which would be replacing Jem, I think I'd be at least a bit excited.. but unfortunately, Jem line was extended into 2015:( I don't have that much against Jem per se, just knowing that the more dolls IT produces in a year, the more quality of most their products seems to suffer, I'm obviously not too happy about another year of Jem.

    but speaking of Jem, they made an announcement about Techrat: "on the final production version his hair line will start slightly further from the center and he does in fact have high top shoes."

  • That Holiday Feeling Poppy Parker
    A bit overdue, but.. below is repost about Christmas Poppy which is available via lottery in wclub..because nothing puts you in a holiday spirit like missing out on the newest hot doll of the moment.
