OOAK Lukas x 3 with Body Brushed & Different Skin Tone

 

lukas-together

Out of all the male face molds of Integrity Toys, Lukas and Daris’ are my favorite.  I have 3 each of these guys. However, I do not always like their defaulted faceup.  So I have all of them repainted and body brushed by Chewin.

I love flocked hair as it can bring out stronger character of a doll. I am lucky to have these Lukas with balanced hair line and the lenght of the flocks are just right to me.

Since the tan version Lukas revealed as a special convention doll of 2010, I have been waiting for a it to be released in the regular line. Too bad that that 2011 tan skin Lukas’ hair style is kind of odd to me.  Anyway, if I am lucky enough to have one, I would shave off his hair and make it a wig head Lukas!  Any ideas where I could find a natural look male doll wigs of this size?

Two The-wa Met – Oh…Not Really A Twins!

My tan Thewa of Deva Dolls has arrived for a while. I ordered some wigs from Chewin and hoping that my prototype Thewa and tan Thewa could share them. However, I found that the wigs could not fit my prototype Thewa as I have expected. After some serious comparison, then I realized that the face shapes, the head size, even the nose of these 2 Thewas are slightly different. Tan Thewa has smaller head, sharper face shape, slimmer nose.

Beside of these points, the ball joint in the back of the knee have slimmed down, which makes it look better. Tan Deva has an extra cut section above pelvis that enhanced a better articulation on twisting and sitting! However, he still has single knee joint which has hidden the ability of posing. Posing with him is still not that easy at all!

I enjoyed my photo shooting sections with these 2 hunks, but I have come across difficulties on giving the proper lighting due to their big contrast skin tone.  Any good tips please?

2011 Fashion Royalty–My Picks

 

I have been waiting for the pictures and news on the 2011 Fashion Royalty releases. Terri and Stratos’ blog have given very detailed information with great pictures.  I have 4 “WOW” when I was reading their blogs.

2011 FR group

(1) Wow! So many dolls!  How could they manage each of them and remember them all?

- It seems the list and pictures are never ending when I was scrolling down to see all of them. There are so many charaters that I have never heard of. However, their faces are somewhat similar to some others!  It would take me some time and effort to distingish them all – and honestly I am in puzzle!

Who are they? Kind of interesting! I like both!2011In_The,Trenches

(2) Wow!  They are all in “uniform” look – trent coats, high waist  long pants or short pants.

What a tough job to make something similar yet different. What if collectors just don’t like this style, then it would leave them no choice on buying any dolls!  On the contrary, if collectors love this style, then they would be on the edge to buy every single one of them! If they could not afford them all, then they would be in a difficult situation (Hehe!)

Adele’s style is my favorite!

This sunglass has been using since FR has sunglass. When will they produce a better one?

2011 Eugen2011 Isha

Isha looks very pretty but like a carton character & no more a Bollywood star!

(3) Wow!  The new face mold of my favorite girl Vanessa looks somehow similar to Kyori now!  

- What is actually in JW’s mind? Why would he need to kill such a popular girl’s face mold.  I rushed into my doll room and admired all my Vanessa for a while.  Thanks God, they are safe!  Then I made a big sign and continue seeing other pictures.

2011 vanessa2011 Veronique

Veronique (RHS) looks older and lesser sweet with her new face mold.

Her sister Vanessa (LHS) has a new face mold similar to her but it turned out to be more like a sister of Kyori now!  (Big Sign!!)2011 Lukas

(4) Wow!  Many new male dolls (esp. on DG line)! 

- Oh, wait … are they sharing the same face mold just with different skin tone??!!  Anyway, my long wait of tan Lukas is over! But what a strange hair style and faceup….He looks like a playline doll instead a character from the premium line FR.  Having said they I think I will try the DG new guys as they are very affortable!
