So I procrastinated with uploading this video and consequently lost it for a few years. However I found it again. The video was horribly noisy because of my computer fan, so I gave it a voice over following what I actually said as closely as I could. I say that she came in October, but the creation date of the raw video file was November 05, 2014? I dunno. It is possible that I received her late October and never got a chance to open her until November. That happens often, because I always want to make sure I record the box opening and I may not always have time to do so. In any case, here is the video!
My dolls actually arrived a few days ago, but the post office has been closed. I finally picked them up and opened them and posted up a video on YouTube. I don't have any pictures of the Tan Vela yet. I hope to get those up soon.
I didn't want any of the Free Choice Option parts, so I did a GO for those who did want them. Someone got a pair of steampunk wings, another person got an extra set of hands, and I also sold the Vela head in the natural skin tone that is pictured. I decided to use a different head on her. I put the Elf Rena head on her from DikaDoll. The head is unfortunately kinda too large, but it is workable. I wish I just kept the Vela head and modded the ears, but oh well.
Anyway, here is the box opening video!
My DollShe doll arrived today! Needless to say I was super excited. However, when I saw the box my heart sank a bit. It was squashed and had a HOLE in it! I opened it and was disappointed to see the doll box inside had been squashed as well, and the matte coating on the box was peeling off. :(
Once opened I was even more disappointed to see that attempted sanding in a few areas discolored the doll. I have read that sanding a tan doll can do this, which is a reason why I didn't order the seams removed (not to mention it was expensive). I suppose I will have to try to match the resin during body blushing to try and fix it.
