Verity

My DollZone Minas head arrived yesterday from Dolk, but missing any certificates and proper box, which made me wonder if she really was the genuine article. Never the less, I am pleased with the head and the face-up, though I shall be changing the eyes and wig at some point.


Verity will not be staying on this body either, I was impatient to see how this head fitted on Nadia's Luts Delf body. The neck size was quite a good fit, but the colour match of the Dollzone Yellow skin with Luts Real Skin Normal is way off, so I went looking at the resins I had on hand and am considering using an Impldoll Young Girl body (46cm tall) in Real skin. It is not perfect, but it isn't a bad match either and it's a reasonable price.

Having never been a fan of large breasted dolls, I think on the Young Girl body she will make a fine younger steampunk sister for Felicity, who is almost ready to be shown.

Well that's about all my dolly news for now. Hope you are all well and happy, I will now go catch up with reading all your blogs. :)

    1. Hi Giac,
      Hee hee, looks like your brain was far in advance of your fingers today. I gather you meant to say "really striking"?
      Thanks, I think so too. :)

  2. I love her bold face up. I think it will suit well to the steampunk theme you have chosen for her. Trying to match resin is always a bit of a pain. Hope it goes well for you!

    1. Thanks Alasse. I am pretty sure I will go with the Impldoll RS body as it's the closest I could find and the neck size is perfect. Unfortunately if I go ahead with the Hippogriff and the boy order from FL, it will have to wait a little while.

  3. She has nice eyes, Xanadu, but you say you'll change them, what do you have in mind? Do you have an idea for her wig too? I am with you on small breasted girls too, I don't like mature bodies, I just find them too 'grown up' for my taste, and I don't like bothering with darts on clothes! LOL I'm so lazy!

    1. Hi Sharon, I find these eyes a little too in my face, but I haven't decided on what I will replace them with yet. As far as the wig goes, I am thinking maybe a Monique Gold Paige, as I need her to be able to wear the hat I've already made.

      I don't mind doing the darts, but it is easier to make clothes without doing all the fittings to get them in the right place. :) To be honest, I just think the large breasts on some dolls look abnormally huge!

    1. No Alejandra, I ordered her new with default face up from Dolk Station. I have no intention of ever selling her, so I am not too fussed and far to lazy to bother hassling them. :)

  5. Hello Xanadu! Such a pretty little face, love her nose! :D Hope that you receive the certificate later on, even if you have plans to ever selling her. Happy Summer! Hugs! <3

    1. Hi Niina,
      Thank you. I'm not going to stress over a certificate, it's not a real problem, as I love the head.
      It's winter here and cold, so I could use your summer warmth. :)

  6. She is really gorgeous!! Hope you can get the certificate and all.
    The body you chose is so pretty (remember that Impldoll does custom match if you send them a piece to compare!), I can't wait to see the sisters together :D

    1. Thanks Musume. Yes, I had read that somewhere, but I'm happy enough with the RS and don't want waste money on shipping when I need to restock the piggy bank just to pay for the body as it is. That FL order for the hippogriff and RF boy, set me back a pretty penny with the current lousy conversion rate!!

  7. Hi Sandi!
    Congrats for this new head, her features are unique and I think it would look really nice as a steampunk girl. I like the colour of her eyes, maybe you could use them in another doll.
    Neither I like huge breasts. In some dolls they look pretty artificial, as if they would have made a plastic surgery XD
    Greetings ^^

    1. Thank you so much Lily! I will probably use the eyes on another doll, but they were not right for Verity. I think she will suit something in a light brown or a more violet blue once she has the right wig and is dressed. Yes, I know what you mean, they look like they are so artificial, not natural at all.
