The Soom Simple Pose Body
I will be honest--I hates it. How two little resin pieces can make or break a whole body I don't know, but even just getting her together (a body from the Cinderella release) was a major pain.
Below you can see the torso with just the head string showing--that part is ok, though the tension for the head seems a little off--but it could be from me using a hook instead of the resin "banana" in there.
Here are the Hip Pieces of Doom.
Before you put the thighs on, be sure the slot points down:
There is no room for a knot in the thin hip pieces--those two pipes have to touch each other inside the pelvis, so I tried tying the knot on the thigh side of the hip piece:
That was a fail because neither the knot or the extra string would fit in the tiny space at the top of the thigh. So I did what I did on my Simple Pose Tremo body--I sewed the elastics together. USE A TOOL or the backside of the needle will be much happier going into your thumb instead of into the tough elastic. Trust me.
Once the elastic was together, the legs finally went on and I was able to put Garnet's head on. The body will be painted, probably in a black and red color scheme, but I haven't worked it out on paper yet. Here you can see that the Cyborg body on the left has the easy pose pieces, and it does everything wonderfully.
The Simple Pose body stands well, but doesn't like to sit or move much outside of a limited range of motion. So the word is, spend twenty dollars and get those Easy Pose thighs.
