Matching Resins

I received my DIM Youra head this week and was very pleased with the face-up. I couldn't wait to put eyes in, though I only had 10mm eyes on hand, which are a little small, so will need to order her a set of 12mm.

I'd been anxious for her arrival to see how she'd fit on the Luts KID body before ordering one, but after trying it on, it really didn't look right on the Luts body.

And so the trial began, on and off bodies until I tried it on my Iplehouse KID . . . what a perfect fit! Wasn't sure whether the resins would match and  I knew IH don't do bodies on their own, so I was hoping to find one on the second hand market.

I hit the internet, found nothing available on DOA. Then came across a post stating that DIM normal skin matched Doll-Zone normal pink, at which point I decided to check the DZ website and found the B45-012 girl body.


The body was not too big at the top or bottom, slender yet shapely and looked like it would suit Youra perfectly. Being the ridiculously impulsive person I am, I took a chance and ordered it. Along with my much desired Vanilla with default face-up, didn't bother with the wig or clothes though.


 I think her sad wee face is just gorgeous and I just had to bring her home. She will be called Destiny and will make a wonderful sister for Kismet. Considering the long wait I had with Choco, I am hoping that I may be lucky enough to have both home in time for Christmas!!

My Iplehouse Doll Choice dolls also arrived last week , but more on those two later when I have some clothes for them . . . don't want boy parts showing do we? :)

  1. Congrats for the arrival, Sandi. I hope the DZ body you've bought matches with the head. Hybrids are always complicated, I have two of them and my only girl looks like one when she isn't (resin are from different years and the company, Dollzone, changed the colour).

    Vanilla is very cute, I like her sad face too. And I'll love to see your boys when they have some clothes ;)
    Hugs ^^

    1. So do I Lily, but sometimes you just have to go for it and hope for the best. It is a bummer though when companies change their resins.

      Don't worry Lily the boys won't be too far way from being shown, just waiting for an outfit to arrive from Russia and you know how long their mail takes!! :)

  2. So many dolls! This is exciting. Destiny is cute, and I bet Kismet can hardly wait to hang out with her sibling.
    Waiting for dolls to come home is just simply torture! I think the doll companies are enjoying having their customers in pain and are deliberately making the waiting times even longer!

    1. Thanks Isabelle. Destiny has been on my wishlist for so long, I couldn't justify NOT ordering her when I was ordering a body from DZ and it should reduce the shipping costs by ordering them together.

      I guess the more popular the ABJD's become, the longer the waiting times, I know it's a bummer but what can one do? I'll wait and probably growl a lot, maybe even curse a little. Grrr!!

      In saying that, my dolly family is almost complete now (thank heavens).
