Impldoll Deborah Arrives


That is her stock photo--I ordered her in July and I think she got buried under the Facebook event, because when I got around to asking about her, Impldoll was OMG we will ship her in 2 weeks (and they did). The best thing is that she doesn't look rushed--her hands are cleaned up well, her ankle balls are the right size, and everything was packed beautifully.

And of course she has those goofy little vamp ears that I like so much:

Here she is standing right in the box (the cat didn't want to):D

Here are the eyes that came with her:

At my house those little teeth are for biting fish, not people, she will join the Mermaid Army I have going here :D

Just a couple more headshots:

She kind of reminds me of Iris with teef!

And as a gift, Impldoll sent a head! I was very happy with this Realskin handsome guy, but mystified as to who he was--Akutenshi figured out that it was a girl sculpt, Octavia--but he's Octavius here, on a Granado old body (the first Boyd body, in fact!)

By the way, Deborah's skin is matte, rather than shiny--very much like Resinsoul now and a better match for Soom and Iplehouse. I like the Star body a lot--her hands are largeish but the rest is a perfect size, roughly SID sized but shaped more like a "corset body" which I am very happy about.

    1. Thank you!! Impl is doing another Facebook event where you can order her head or John's for the price of postage. John is cute too--I got his head with the Bella I bought from Dreadfulme and though I didn't keep him, I did like him!

    1. Thank you so much!!I was really happy that I found a body for the head... though I suspect my incoming Neptune head won't be happy ..but he wouldn't have matched anyway! But now there is no room on the shelf for anyone else, so maybe Neptune can just be my cute floating head. :D

  3. Aww, she's sooo pretty! Congrats <3<3<3
    May I have a question?
    Am I correct that the box is much shorter than the whole doll, so it's impossible too keep the full doll(together with a head) in this box?
    Sorry for kinda strange question, but I'd like to order Azalea as a birthday gift for someone, so it would be a little strange if the doll in the box would be incomplete, I mean, not fully assembled...
    And sorry for my rather poor English^^

    1. Yes, the box is useless--I use a shipper from another company to keep her in now; and yes, the dolls come all squished up in a crouch, with the head off-- and getting the head on is not easy! Impldoll does this because it saves money on the EMS, but I wish Impl would just offer dolls as kits, and pack them more snugly. Or give the option to pay higher EMS for a full doll in a larger box.
      Your English is perfect!

  4. Thank you so much for the fast reply^^
    Ummm... sorry for one more question - but what do you mean saying that getting the head on is not easy? Is that mean that the body was strung way too tight? Or sth else...?

    1. Yes! The dolls are super tight--even with a puller I have to really pull hard to get the hook up. I have had a couple of Impldoll girls that I restrung so that I could work with them more easily (I tend to swap heads a lot). They do stand very well when they are tight, but they pose and sit more easily when they are a bit loose. If you put suede in the joints they are wonderful to pose, too!

    1. It's easier with two people, but I would think about looking at the Marketplace on Den of Angels as well--you can find a doll assembled there sometimes for less than you would pay from the factory, all put together and in good condition. Since Impldoll is doing this Facebook event with a free Deborah head for postage, you might see them later on the Marketplace. Do you belong to a bjd club? They can help you put together a doll, no problem! The best trick I ever learned for tight dolls is to take a foot off instead of the head, put a ribbon through the elastic, let the elastic go up the leg, and then the head goes on without much pulling. Then you pull the ribbon to get the elastic back down the leg, and slip the foot back on. Swearing at the elastic and the foot hook seems to help, too. :D
