Quite some time back, I ordered two dolls using the Iplehouse Doll Choice, although I like the dolls I received, they were not exactly what I requested. I was wondering if anyone else has had the same experience with the Doll Choice and if you had, would you bother doing it again?
|Serca Normal Skin|
|Peach Special Real Skin Makeup B|
I ordered Serca SRS with the Peach Makeup B and this was the result.
Notice the black line where there was none? Fortunately it's not too dark, and I like the rest of the face-up, otherwise I would have sent it back!! I think you all know my feelings about black lines on the mouths of dolls.
|Naias Normal Skin Elemental Guardian|
I ordered Naias with the face-up as above and made special mention of wanting the teeth to show. This was what I received.
Notice the bottom lip is fuller, also slightly different colour and there are no teeth at all showing. The eyes are quite lovely, but the lips were a bit of a disappointment, even though I preferred the peach colour to pink. Perhaps she will receive a new face up down the track, when I get fed up with the way she looks now.
I think in future, if I don't want a default face-up, I will probably order the doll blank for $230, that's a saving of $105 and almost half way towards an additional doll. I can see why doing it myself is becoming more attractive to me day by day.
