Um. Er.
Confession time: the bevy of CHish cuties in the previous post doesn't make up the entire group of recent arrivals.


This is Douro. Unless his name turns out to be Cho. I'm having a bit of a struggle in the name department.

Can you Spot That Sculpt? There may be prizes! ;-)

He is an artist sculpt (head and body).

He was not ordered through a shopping service, or from Yahoo!Japan.

He is wearing Iplehouse Y.I.D. clothes. (Hey, I never said all the clues would be helpful!)

He will soon be unavailable, because the artist is working on new dolls.

Is he a lumedoll?

Congrats whatever the cutie is!

And we have our first winner! He is indeed a Lumedoll . . . but which one? :)

Would Frani like either of these? (The hot-pink one can also be turned around and worn as a henley.)

The rainbowy one is purty! (they both are of course!)

no clue which lumedoll... Don't know them well enough. I know there's a saiph.

The rainbowy one will be on the way to you tomorradays, with love to Frani! :-)

Yup, there is a Saiph, and I'm sorely tempted by him, too . . . but this is one of the other Lume boys. *heh heh heh*

Wow, not a doll I'm familiar with, but he's very striking! :D

-- A <3

Ain't he just? It took me a few days to find the right look for him (not to mention clothes that would fit that skinny, long-legged body), but I think we're getting there at last.

Hey, speaking of catdolls: did you see the Volks Baron that was on eBay last week? The auction looked a bit fishy (*koffkoff*), but if it really was a legit sale of a Baron, I wish someone had snapped him up.

Ooohh, no, I didn't!

I keep feeling like I ought to have a Baron for completeness' sake, but the sculpted gloves/shoes turn me off (I'd originally contemplated getting one and making original hands and feet to replace them), and the face sculpt is a little more ratty than catty to me, so I'd rather that any of the few Barons around go to someone who would appreciate him as he is.

With that said, he's still a nifty doll and I love seeing him occasionally pop up on my radar!

I've been enjoying myself by reading through the new and old Unusual/Unpopular Doll Threads on DoA, and seeing some CH beauties in the process!

-- A :)

Is it Izar? He's lovely. And the body is difficult to guess. I'd say Shinydoll if they ever made a boy body, but I'm wondering if it's not a Domuya Perennial boy.

Oh duh, he's on his default body! Plainly, not enough caffeine today. I think I can pants him. We should talk.

No, wait - Keid Duo - and yes, I looked at the Lumedoll site. My bad. It was driving me nuts.

Hee! We have Winner #2!! The hot pink mohair sweater is yours if you like it--otherwise, I might have something else in my stash. ;-)

He really shouldn't be too hard to pants, especially now that I've figured out he's just a bit thinner than Iplehouse Y.I.D. The Iplehouse length is perfect. Talk we will.

And I keep looking at Izar (that's a fascinating face!), but when I come right down to it, I have to admit that Izar is a bit too much of a tough for me. Sejong gets to be the toughest guy in this house--I don't want him towered over by a bald yakuza guy with multiple earrings, you know?

The face sculpts are very cool and I love the body. Izar kind of calls me, but I keep telling myself I'm not going there.

The body ... I'd sure love to play with one. Maybe I need to make a trek out your way.

I did make pants for an Izar once and I got a good report from the owner. Do let's talk. Maybe some trading is in order.

absolutely love him!!You always find such classic gems!! LOVE!!!!

These artist dolls KILL me--you know all about my Saiki mania, and now here's another person sculpting odd, intense faces. GUH.

He's sure handsome, whatever sculpt he is, LOL! Love the first pic!

That one's my favorite, too!

It's so funny--here you are, gravitating toward the EID hunks, and I'm heading in the direction of skinny and lanky. Don't you love the variety available in BJDs these days? What an amazing hobby . . .

He is, he is, he is! I'm so glad I took the plunge and ordered him before Eva discontinued most of the heads--now, I have to decide whether I want a Bellatrix before the end of the year. What to do, what to do??

Soooooo, would Ms. Emma wear the hot-pink sweater in the comments post above? It can also be turned around and worn as a henley, with the placket in front . . . or there might be something else here that she'd like, once I get it finished (we're close!) . . .

(Deleted comment)
Then she should watch for the mail over the next few days! :-) I do think this one turned out to be a fun sweater--just not every doll's cup of tea. Ms. Emma has the character to pull it off, mmmyeah.

(Deleted comment)
Hee hee hee! I say, when you can work a piece of clothing in all directions, go for it! What's the fun in leaving stuff on all the time? Anybody can do that.

Yay for the impending new faceup! I'll be eager to see how it turns out--

(Deleted comment)
That's it exactly! Because the other dolls I have who wear this wig (and they aren't fond of sharing it, let me tell you) are Atsumori and Mally Lee. I think there's something fae and wild about both the Saint and the Bella Auden faces:

I'm a little sorry now that I sold those Gumdrops Antiquity eyes. At the time, I saw them and recoiled (omgPINK!), because I had expected more of a dusty mauvey-purple color, but now I can think of quite a few uses for them. Bleah.

Bluish gray is THE hardest color to find in eyes, I think. I wonder whether there's something especially tricky about the interaction of gray and blue pigments in the silicone eyes? I can't come up with any other explanation for the paucity, because bluish-gray ought to be a fairly popular color. (If hard glass would even possibly work, what about Volks cadet blue?)

Evenstar did an incredible job on the tats, didn't she?!

(Deleted comment)
I started out liking silicones a lot, but I've moved back toward glass (and, even better, urethane)--in most colors, they just seem more reflective and "alive," somehow. There are exceptions! Masterpiece Precious Stone is my favorite blue of all time; it has a glow to it that I haven't seen in any other eye, no matter what the material is.

If you find yourself wanting to try a pair of HG cadet blues, let me know what size--I might have 'em, and you would be more than welcome to borrow them for a trial. :-)

(Deleted comment)
I'll see whether I still have 14mm cadet blues, and if I do, I'll put them in with Emma's sweater (since I've been out of it with a sinus infection and didn't get to the post office yesterday)!
