Shopping & Swapping

Some of my recent small taobao purchases~ I always love stickers and I also picked up some cute lace ~~

She's kind of looking confused at her new, pretty hands!
Getting a bit frustrated with her old, yellowed body, I decided to try Clozel (still nameless) on the new Super Gem body (Snow white's) ~ and it's a very good fit... even better than the Snow white head itself (it's way too small!). I also made some lace cuffs for those ugly wrist joints :3

Then I was left with a problem, how about my snow white head? (Miur)~
I decided to try the head on my SQlabs 61cm body and ...

Both the size and color are a near perfect match! Oh my god. xD... I guess I have no choice but to buy another SQ body for this lady... ToT my wallet!

  2. That's awesome! I mean sure, you will spend more money but you will have a pretty body for Clozel AND a proportionate one for Miur!! That head is so lovely, but I agree that it's a bit small for the super gem body.

    Also yay for taobao purchases, everything looks super cute :D

    1. But if DoA's marketplace is back up I can at least sell the old Super gem body as well! xO -waits eagerly-

      I think so too, I never really liked the snow white head on the tall body with that thick neck too much.

      Thanks! :D Be careful of taobao I tell you xO

  3. Love the cute things you got, especially the lace!!

    Both of the ladies look like they're loving their "new" bodies ^w^ I always wonder why the Snow White head was so tiny, all the others have seemed reasonably sized? D:

    1. Thankies! :D Lace shopping on taobao is way too addictive @o@

      I also wonder, will Soom ever release another 60cm body? It seems like Snow white was meant to go on a smaller body, her face is so small and delicate.

  4. Love those cute stickers~ But I would feel bad for using them if I bought them. I really like the SQlabs 61cm body, they have very pretty details to their body. I almost bought the body in DoA but I don't know if they pose well?

    1. I know what you mean, I hardly ever use my stickers, but instead have a massive growing collection of them @o@
      I love the SQ body, I find it poses very well, and I also like the one piece torso, but some people might not like the lack of additional poses that would come with a jointed torso. The only issue for me is with her wrists, they sometimes tend to "pop" out of their joints to give a bit of an awkward look ^^;;; Otherwise I really recommend this lovely body! :D

  5. Those lace cuffs are gorgeous. They really suit her.

    I'm so in love with your Clozel. She's just so pretty and I always love when you post photos of her. I do love that expression though. She does kind of look like she's wondering what those cuffs are and how they got on her wrist.

    Miur has such a sweet face. I love the way her face up is done and that wig just looks great on her.

    I'm glad you were able to find good resin matches for both of these heads. It can be a pain trying to resin match, especially white skin. I've had such a hard time with white skin over the years. Every company seems to have different versions of white skin.

    1. Thankies~ I will make some more in the future hopefully~
      Thanks for your kind comment, I also adore her sculpt, she has to be one of my favorite Soom sculpts right now! Haha~ but Snow white's sculpt is also lovely and quite different!
      That's true, some of them are paper white, others are pinky white while yet others are yellow white XO I feel a bit lucky I am able to mix & match my dollies like this. I'd hate to try hybridizing tan or other strange colored dollies though T___T that's the worst!
