Rhymes With Gneiss

From the Merriam Online Dictionary:
At Soom I found a nice Gneiss
Made of resin and sugar and spice
And though an excellent deal
I find at each meal
I can only afford to eat rice.

Well, I have trouble digesting wheat, so that is really why all the rice ;)Gneiss is the New Body version of their SuperGem girls, and the first to be released on it. Because she was released after the Female Free Choice event, not many people still had the funds to order her, and some are a little wary of the new body's performance and styling. (she has the same large neck issue my IoS does, and the wrist balls are large as well). I am sure there are some engineering flaws in her, but the chance to own a new version of the SuperGem body was well worth putting up my tax return for. And I like her face--I think the same artist that painted my SO Galena is doing Gneiss as well.


  1. What a very strange name... Gneiss!
    Look what we call Gneiss:,or.r_gc.r_pw.r_qf.,cf.osb&biw=1141&bih=632&um=1&ie=UTF-8&tbm=isch&source=og&sa=N&tab=wi&ei=LzObT6miLeei4gSZ4OypDg

  2. It's because Soom has "rock/mineral" names for all their dolls, from Beryl to Zinc. I think poor Gneiss was what happens when they are running out of names.;)

  3. Gneiss is a beautiful mineral, we use it a lot here with a polished surface for stairs, table- and countertops - and of course for tombstones. I just wondered why it is used for such an elvish body where I associate it with a male figure. But however: Maybe there's more behind this delicate little lady than we see on the first glimpse, maybe she dreams of a life as a warrioress and so Gneiss (correct: Gneis) is just right for her.

  4. can do u tell me de height of this doll?

  5. She's about 64 cm tall--but if you go to the Soom site I think on the left side of the home page there is a link to the official measurements of the bodies, but I am not sure they were updated for the new body. All I could find for the new body were the posing photos:
