    Is this a Resinsoul doll?

    The photography, sculpt, eye colour, faceup and even the absence of eyelashes is distinctly Resinsoul.

    Hi,
    Her sculpt is by gardenofdolls, and she will have eye lashes applied by me individually when they are shipped. It is manufactured by BBB, so the skin tone is the same.

    elf ears !

    Here's a better picture of facing forward with elf ears. Do any of you think the ears can be a bit longer or just right?

    I think the ears are just right. I like that they are low and going up; it will be easier to fit wigs than on dolls with ears set back. Her ears remind me a bit of Bobobie's first elf, Pixie, which I got only a few weeks ago and LOVE. I also have Ju, who has long long ears sitting quite far back; wigs are a challenge on her.

    I do think it's good to have elf ears that can be seen through wigs. Have you tried wigs on the head to see if the ears are visible? I.e., would they poke out a bit on a long straight wig, for example?

    Yes, you can. But Bobobie's light tan is not as dark as some other companies' tans. When I said the tan looks "normal" to me - I meant human normal. It's about my own skin color. I think the tan is a nice warm skin color -- and it's tan clear through, no worries about the color disappearing, chipping, etc.

    Hi Anita,
    You requested about the wigs on elf ears before. Here's the answer I got from the factory, that wigs fit well, with no problem (view pic). By the way, I may have to redo all three of my top default pictures on my website. It just does not look like her real self. I just don't want to misrepresent. These pictures show how her face is very well:

    http://i218.photobucket.com/albums/c...o2007/wig2.jpg

    Oh, I'm so mad at myself for misrepresenting Nabiya default pics. They didn't look like her before, because of lighting for some reason. I just took these in morning light by my window. Very clear now:

    Hmmm, maybe a little too much hair there <g>. But yes, those ears are quite workable with wigs; you can either show the ears or not.

    Just FYI, the portrayal I like best on your Web site is the Nabiya with the long brown hair and brown dress on. She has a nice brow and that entire "look" seems to suit her.

    If Bobobie is doing the basic faceup, I wouldn't think your photographs are that far off. I have eight various Bobobie-cast dolls and while the faceups vary a bit depending on the designer, they have a common basic style. They're easy to enhance (if you want more drama) and eyelashes really bring them to life.

    I'm kind of off white dolls right now, I do love the normal skin but the tan color she could be a little Hawaiian surfer girl. This is always the worst part for me. I hate decisions, it literally will put me into a panic until I decide. Or somebody makes up my mind for me. Somebody? Please?
    Hi Stella,
    Take a look at Kameo's photos above. Light tan is very pretty just like that. My photos came out too dark. You seem to be gearing toward the tan if that helps. By the way, the second photo there looks like the knee just needs adjustment. It'll pop right back in the leg with no problem..lol.

    I finally got around to taking some pictures of my little beauty. Her name is Emma (she chose that name). I just did a short photo story about her here:
    http://www.denofangels.com/forums/sh...d.php?t=339468

    The lighting was not so great- I was chasing it late in the afternoon.


    Sweet face!

    http://i121.photobucket.com/albums/o...snowglobe9.jpg
    Poses really well.

    http://i121.photobucket.com/albums/o...snowglobe4.jpg
    Stands right out of the box with no restringing or sueding!

    I love this doll- she is SO charming!

    Thank you! I think she's adorable too! I don't know what size eyes they are- they were the default ones. The default eyes are really nice. Normally I replace my doll's eyes, but these just seemed perfect so I left them in. I *think* they may be a size 14?

    I like the eyes in your tan fairy up there. Those are 12mm, right? I've been looking for brown eyes and have a question - are round eyes fitting okay in her head? Not interfering with S-hook?

    Hi Anita,
    Yes, those are 12mm glass eyes. 12mm glass eyes seem to be the best size for glass eyes. (do not get 14mm glass eyes..they are too big). It's strange, but I bought some 12mm acrylic eyes as well, and they're slightly smaller than the 12mm glass eyes, so in acrylic eyes, 14mm acrylic eyes fit well. By the way, those are not brown eyes, but dark purple eyes. Because Nabiya is light tan, it looks brownish I guess. Got them here:
    http://www.mintoncardinc.com/dolls/i...+Purple&cat=30
    For example, here are two fairies that I previously did. The left one is wearing 12mm light purple glass eyes, and right is wearing 12mm acrylic eyes:

    No chat? No owner pics? Anyway, I have a favor to ask someone with a Nabiya - if you could post leg measurements? Crotch to floor, waist to floor? Thanks so much!

    Happy Holidays, everyone!
