Reminded Me of My School Project–New Releases from Superfrock

I have been running here and there for business trips lately and were not able to get online as frequent as I wanted. Not until my dear dolly friends both from Australia and Hong Kong mentioned to me about their new purchase of Sybarite – Geometry, had I then visited Superfrock.com and found that they have also released another outfits set - Picnic Magnet outfits.

Some Insight from Friends:

Both of my friends told me that the elbow joints of the Geometry have been improved by showing only one piece when they are bended; and that the slip-on shoes with metallic plat are cool in style - although the front is too sallow that it could not stay on. Plus there is a hook stuck out from the ear lobs for hanging ear-rings. Although she has no idea whether the hook could be removed from the lobs or not, you could further accessorizing her with more fun!

Reminded Me of My School Project:

To me, both pieces somehow reminded me of my primary school art project which my teacher asked us to recylce old magazines, cloth, candy wrapings, food packaging, anything we could recycle of, and sticked them on a paper to form our own art!

I could not help but notice why there is a blue feather ponygirl headpiece on Geometry! Is it inspired by the Circus? Having said that I sometimes appreciate how C&D surprise doll lovers. It may not please everyone but it spiced up the dolly world with their wild imagination!

I thought there was something familiar about those designs Basic Drawing class. Yes! They seem just dumb to me but worse of all is that elbow, it went from bad to worse, and why are there hooks for earings? is it because they can't pierce the cheap plastic the doll is made of without it chipping apart? WTF And as for the faces of these new dolls, they looking nothing like sybs anymore, they look like old women. honestly think this line has gone from bad to worse.

Great write up...I would not say no to Geometry coming to live with me, if only my budget would allow.

As for Picnic Magnet...The dress is cute but nothing special but the purse...It looks like they grabbed grandma's old coin purse out of her handbag and gave it to the doll...Like I did so many times growing up for my Barbie.

Kelsie,

You have spoken my words about the purse. I totally have the same feeling towards it - A human size scale "pretends' for dolls! So do those silver spike, and the buckles! Very low cost productions!

Anonymous,

My friend said that the elbows have been improved since the last V3. It seems that they have done something to improve it, so the lower part of the joints would not stick out as it was!

When I saw all these lately releases, me and other friends all think that they look like random DIY by using human scale stuff for 1/4 doll scale.

Hope the Syb die-hard fans won't flame me here!

There is a feather headpiece on Geometry because her fashion is rethinking version of Dior couture gown from egyptian collection, Alek Wek wore it on the catwalk.
