New doll!

Probably the last for a long time, he took up ALL my doll money and things are getting increasingly tight around here financially. I might be able to put away birthday and tax return money for a body for one of the floating heads or something, but there's not going to be much doll purchasing in 2011 I think. But this guy is awesome, and I'm glad I got him!

I've posted him a couple other places too. He's a Withdoll Juwel, in gray skin - a gorgeous mature mini from a brand new company! I need to take photos of him with the rest of the crew soon!

He's lovely looking and that grey is very nice, too. Love the face up on him.

Thank you! I was a little worried about the gray, but it is also what first made him catch my eye, and it turns out I like it!

Seeing as how I'm waiting on Sarojin (who's a grey skinned doll), I love seeing other greys and the face-ups that people get.

So cool, I can't wait to see him! I was a little wary of doing the faceup on him, not sure how it would work, but I'm happy with how it turned out. In some lights he has a sort of slate-blue cast to his resin, which is nice with the blue on his eyes.

*nods* I'm giving Angel Toast free rein in doing Sarojin's face-up since she's read Enchanted Shadows and she really liked his character. I don't expect to see him until Jan *sigh* and while it seems like forever since I ordered him, tomorrow is only the 3 week mark.

That's awesome, she does such great work. I get to see a lot of her faceups at meets and I'm always impressed.

That second shot is particularly nice. :) Every time I see a face up with a color band across the eyes I look at my girls... I think they are getting nervous about that. XD

Thank you! LOL, your girls would look really cool with something like that, I think.

I went with it on Marley partly because he has a connection to Jester (who got an odd faceup because he's an elf), and partly because hey, he's GRAY. Normal is kind of out of the question when you're gray, I think, LOL!

Thank you! I need to take more pics of him, but I'm so happy I got him!

WOOT! I do like those lazy droopy eyes, he looks ready to topple over asleep in that last shot!
Let me guess: he's on the Pirate crew?

So hey how does the body stack up (hrrrrr) against dollzone and MNF? I want to eventually buff up Tamboy's body since it looks so thin by Nicco.

Any chance of shistless pics of him with Fitch and Jester? (When you have time of course)

Thanks! LOL, I just got done taking group photos of the pirates (to be posted soon) before I read your post. I'll take some comparison photos soon.

I can tell you he's slightly taller than Fitch, and is sculpted similarly to the MNF muscular but not quite as detailed. He's got the upper torso joint like a MNF but it's not quite as flexible as MNF is. I really need to try some clothes on him - I'm really glad I bought his fullset outfit. Because one of the belts that came with it was a little too big, but the one I have Jester wearing (on the second hole) was too small unless I moved it way up around his navel. And his belt was too big on Jester, too, by quite a bit. He kind of looks thin by himself because of the height I think, but it seems like he might be on the thicker side. He has thick muscular thighs, his fullset outfit pants just barely go on over them! When I have time I'm going to start trying everyone's clothes on him. I suspect Dollzone stuff is the right length but I'm suspicious of whether they'll fit width-wise. MNF stuff is wider through the hips but will be too short, I think.

I wish I had a Lati Blue around to compare him too. I'm not sure how they are on thickness but I bet their pants would be OK in length. Not that there's much Lati Blue stuff around, really!

Sounds good... if the Withdoll body is good it would be cheaper than buying an Iple JID.

And I wouldn't have ANOTHER floating head here
