Getting Kesenia was a bit of a last minute decision. I knew that her blowupdollish mouth would be an issue from day one. But.. I love pale dolls, and brown hair, and dramatic eyeshadow combined with nude lips, so this doll was still very much right up my alley.
So I got her and didn’t regret it because she sold out mysteriously fast.

In person she looks better than promos, applied eyelashes really brought her eyes to life..

After getting over the initial shock caused by the bucktoothed mouth.. I warmed up to it… Of course what they did was totally wrong.. instead of resculpting the jaw, they tried to fill the widely open mouth space with thick strokes of paint. Well, that didn’t work…which is a big shame, because it must be the only thing holding her back from being the next grail doll.

Out of the box her hair was completely flat and not very attractive..

Her hair color is one tone lighter than the original brunette that Integrity seems to love so much, so yay for the variety.
I washed it immediately, but it still doesn’t look stunning. Being crushed in the box did some long term impact on the roundness of her curls :/
It would be nicer if she had a sidepart instead of the centerpart because she looks even more like a missing 4th bride with her hair like that.

Her skintone is something new. It’s somewhat close to the extreme pale Tatyana/Brides tone, but (thank god) it’s not as translucent. It has ivorish bone-white tone.

Her body has high matte finish, so it looks incredible in natural light. Her head is a bit darker than the body though.

Porcelain skintones comparison:


FD Agnes(yellowish translucent quality), vs 2011Mina (lighter non translucent rosy tone) vs Kesenia (bone-white porcelain), vs FR2 Elise (peachy) vs Pale Asian

I’m pretty much done with my Eugenia reroot! Just bangs need some more styling, but since I HAVE to take a picture today.. here she is..

At first I thought about doing a sidepart, but her eyebrows turned out to be way too evil lol so I went with bangs… I loved her in many colors, but brown was my favorite, I don’t have too many brownettes in my collection.

looking for the right color…


..bingo!

LIW Dania wearing convention DG outfit..

…I’ve been busy with Eugenia reroot today.. so I just took a quick closeup of Natalia before going to bed..I’ve always felt that discontinuing old Natalia’s mold was such a waste.. I’m glad they are bringing her back!

…just thought I’d take a pic of Eugenia to commemorate her original look before I rip her hair out and start on the reroot lol

  • hope i don't forget to try for those shoepacks today.. ×0
  • am i the only one who gets really annoyed when ebay sellers keep nagging you about leaving them feedback?

    i mean there are plenty legit reasons why i might want to wait with leaving feedback and it has nothing to do with me being dissatisfied with the purchase
    i might prefer to leave feedback for several things at once so i wouldn’t have to waste time logging onto a different account each time just so that i could leave that one feedback
    or i might not be a big expert on that item..and want to give it a test drive or do a little research to make sure everything is working correctly or i might not even have the item in hand, someone could've accepted it for me while i'm away
    or i might prefer to not leave any feedback at all. sometimes you end up buying something personal or very expensive and you don't want a permanent record attached to your profile revealing that you bought that item through the feedback system
    but no they have to keep spamming me with those copy and paste reminders of theirs. just that alone makes me want to leave them a neutral..wouldn't do that, but they sure aren't getting any stars ratings from me.
