I wanted to learn more about the dolls I was about to receive, so I went browsing and found there has been three separate releases of the Experiment Project Mc2 dolls so far. From the photos, it appears I purchased four dolls from the 1st release, one from the second release and a mixture of clothes from both 1st & 2nd.
My parcel arrived this morning, very fast shipping considering yesterday was a holiday here in Melbourne. Four of the dolls have painted panties, the fifth has skin-tone panties. Three have flat feet, the other two high heeled feet. None of them will stand unaided. Though I did find some of my tiny shoes, from Blythe and PukiFee fit them, so will show them later when I re-dress them.
I am really happy with their inset eyes and lashes, they are much nicer than I was expecting. Their face-ups are unblemished and the colours are lovely.
Can't quite figure out what they are made of exactly, but the body does feel different to the limbs and the heads are matt whereas their bodies are a little shiny. I think I shall have to rely on the fashion doll experts opinion here.
Jointing is not too bad on most and they hold a pose reasonably well, though McKeyla's & Bryden's left knee and Adrienne's & Camryn's right knee just drops when in the seated position (legs straight out).
Some of the dolls had elastic bands in their hair, which I removed and used my Gotz doll hairbrush to attended to the slightly tangled hair on each doll. I was pleased at how easy it was to run the brush, and then a comb through. The one with the most frizz was Bryden's, which, as it had originally been tightly curled, came as no surprise. It will be interesting to see how it comes up after the spa.
Overall, I am happy with these dolls, although they are no way near as hefty as my BJD or vinyl play dolls, they still feel comfortable in my hands and will probably be keepers.
That's it for today, I'm off to play!
P.S. After I washed and conditioned Bryden's hair, it was looking much better. Now it's in rollers. :)
