Swallow Sybarite–a Great Theme Doll…no more these days??

swallow-sybarite-really-can-flyI used to be a fan of Sybarite. I started my collection of Sybarite when I came across the hot discussion on Prego by chance on the day that Haute Couture Magazine exclusive Sybarite was for sale online.  In order to eligable to order one Sybarite, I subscribed HC magazine for 2 years implusively.  I was lucky to be able to order Skye (although I prefer the other one more)!  Then my serious collection started to grow from Snow Baby onwards….Couture Salon, Pony, Rosemary, Parsley, Swallow, Inque….

Since V3, the modified face mold and newly engineered body of Sybarite, released, I began to miss my Sybarite. In my opinion, all the new changes have distroyed Sybarite.  They have changed something they should not have changed (e.g.: face, nose, eyes…yuck!). And also changed something, such as elbows, hips, thigh  joints, in an incapble way) That makes me miss the Sybarites that I used to have.  Swallow is actually very nice in terms of great theme, design, styling, quality, as well as the tiny little touches such as the scratches and the wings!!   I searched my archiev and found these pictures!  I just LOVE them!!

Happy Valentine’s Day–Greeting from OOAK Lukas with New Look

lukas-new-outfits

It has been a long time since I bought anything new for 12” dolls. I had just come across some cool loose items online the other days and I could not stop from buying some!  Here is an outfits from HotToys and it fits Lukas just so well.  With this new look, he could be a professional killer, or a Korean pop singer who could dance so cool as you could see on MV, or a top catwalk model, or a Valentine or Romeo coming out from the dark and lightening up somebody’s life!   It is totally up to your imagination!

It has just past mid-night, so Happy Valentine Everybody!!!

More information on V3 New Body

 

We have seen more pictures of the V3 pictures in Prego in the past few days.  Many buyers already received their dolls and taken some great pictures. I mean they are trying hard to show the best of this V3 in their pictures. However, judging from all the pictures that I have seen, the changes (yea, I call it “changes” but not “improvement”) on Syb are big but not necessary impressive at all!!!

Click the below for the link of the body comparsion picture that I found on Flickr.

Syb Body Comparsion

(1) Taller than the older version

(2) Head is bigger, so the hard cap wigs would not fit the new head anymore. It also means that she has a big head on like Tonner dolls now.

(3) She has a longer round neck with no details.  The sexy lines on the neck is gone.

(4) The busts plate section is lowered, no good for bra or bikini.  The V-shape of her rib cage looks like the FR body. While JS body shape is rocking the fashion doll world, FR2 body has great improvement and looks similar to JS, Syb seems went backward.

(5) V3 has higher feet arch and slimmer feet, so she would not fit all old Syb shoes, or there would be plenty of hollow when she is on old shoes.

(6 ) Although V3 showed great improvement on articulation by using double knees and elbow joints, it also scarified the beauty of the body lines in the mean time.  You can see her elbows joints stucking out here and there almost in every picture.  Although the hips is slimmed down, there are extra sections cut on the hips. Syb looks like a muppet more than a top model to me now!  (Sign!) 

(7) The newly modified face (narrower nose bridge in front, higher from the side) deeper eye sockets, closer between the eyes etc. make V3 look much older and a plastics surgey friend to me!

There is no arguement that the old body, especially the huge square hips, is annoying to most doll fashion makers or collectors, yet it is better than the new one to me personally! Blam me conservative, I still prefer the older face molds like Pony (a bit rounder face) or Rosemary (slimmer face)!  This V3 makes me miss my older Sybarite!! 

Rosemary…one of my most favorite faceup Syb.

Love this styling…Although the body is not perfect but at least you would not see joints stucking out. And the square butt is well hidden.BD_06_venusMantilla copyI am going to miss this face of SybmaverickFLYER
