Soom & doom

I feel recently Soom has really been on a roll with their latest (re)releases!

All images owned by Soom!
This is the original Serin & Rico release~
They re-released Serin & Rico, which is still my favorite MSD sculpt by them x3
Cute Deer Rudy x3
Sexy, smirky, demonic Ender @_@
Boy!Nephelin is interesting and somehow I never imagined her as a boy!
Their latest announced release, I'm awaiting further photos of this cute little bunny :O
I still have very good feelings about soom's sculpts since I own so many of them and I clearly recall the day I got soomed with the release of the Onyxes!

However, I've been worried about their service, I wonder if it has improved as of late?

Speaking of Soom, I am really very excited to meet them for the first time tomorrow at Hoffmann's Toy Box! I am very curious to see what dolls they'll bring!

What do you all think of Soom these days? :3

  1. Ooooh meeting Soom sounds exciting. I'd love to meet some of the artists behind these dolls. Have lots of fun at Hoffman's Toy Box!

    I actually have never ordered from them. I only own one Soom doll, Epidos which I purchased from a friend of mine. I do like their fantasy inspired dolls a lot.

    1. I'll update ASAP!
      I adore their sculpts, but mostly their older one it seems, thankfully they do a lot of rereleases!

  2. Hm, frankly speaking I'm not into Soom, however I think Heliot and York are very nice sculpts. Their wigs also look good and I wonder if they're thick enough.

    1. What are your favorite companies?
      I think the last tjme I bought soom wigs I didn't like the coarseness of the hair, however they might use a different fiber now!

    2. I'm a big fan of Little Rebel, I also like IOS. And I regret a lot I didn't buy 5th Motif Venitu.

  3. You lucky girl!!! Let us know how it goes meeting soom! I love their sculpts but I have no idea if the service has improved. I still have cute Bygg/Beyla in my wishlist, but I'm not sure if they will ever release a tan version with both heads like I want to hahaha. Still, I agree they have been releasing nice things lately.
    Have fun at Hoffman's toy box!!

    1. I will! I also hope you can get bygg, that was one of my favorite tiny sculpts by them too! I also loved the tiny amberlike deers, but sadly I forgot the name of that sculpt!

  4. Hope you share about that meeting! And I wish you good luck too!!
    I don't know if their service improved, the last things I read about them were sadly terrifying =S

    1. Thanks! Yeah, I think they had a big staff turnover and have become a bigger, less personal company now, which is one reason why I barely order from them any more.

  5. Wow! It'd be awesome to meet Soom at a convention or doll exhibition! Be sure to take a lot of photos for us (if it's allowed)! :)

    It feels like Soom is releasing a lot of different styled dolls these days. Like, they used to do a lot of fantasy dolls with the same kind of aesthetics, but I personally think that they are catering - or at least trying to - to a wider audience what with all the little animal dolls and human doll releases.

    I still really like Soom, although I haven't felt the need to get any of their new releases lately. I do have that FCE tawny Feny coming though. That dreaming boy Nephelin looks really nice, though. And I love the little animal dolls, Rudy and that new bunny are so cute~ <3 I'm regretting a bit that I didn't get a Rudy now...

    1. I have taken a lot, hopefully they came out clear! I'll have to get prepping those for a new post!
      Oh yes, they do all varieties and sizes, don't they? I agree, I was severely tempted by Rudy too, sooo adorable!

  6. Hi Irene,
    It's been quite a while since I have purchased anything from Soom, so I can't help with that. I do like a lot of their new releases, but not enough to add any to my collection...I guess I'm getting picky and when there's any mention of bad service I tend to shy off.
    Hugs,
    X

    1. I like a lot too, however the last time I ordered from them they sent me a doll with 2 left arms and it took months to send the correct parts! Lol, their service sent me around in circles...
      So that has made me shy away as well, though I don't mind purchasing their dolls 2nd hand.

  7. I just adore the deer! And please do share some news from the meeting! Hope that it went well!
