Whoa, talk about lightning fast shipping!
I purchased an old Soom (Topaz) body from the DoA marketplace after someone answered my ad. The seller shipped the body the second my payment was confirmed! Before I could blink the doll had arrived.
This body is for my Soom Amber head and Coquina hooves. I am glad I can finally get rid of the highly undesirable Mirodoll body. Why did I ever think using the bodies for a hybrid was a good idea?
Mirodoll lovers, please skip the following paragraph.
I like the idea that their prices are super cheap, but you get what you pay for! Their sculpts are...very unpleasant for me to look at. Not to mention the jointing structure is so bad, it is extremely difficult to even get the dolls to stand, much less pose in any pose other than sitting limply in a chair. I also noticed their resin is quite...chalky? Does that make sense? Anyway, love the prices of Mirodoll but NOTHING else. Until they hire better sculptors, I will be avoiding them at all costs. I also had an issue with them after ordering, which you can read in a previous post.
Okay, back to the doll arrival.
I noticed this body had a very strange ankle joint. I don't know if this is a mistake from the previous owner as I did see they owned many Soom dolls, but the body arrived with two right ankle joints. I also noticed that one of these joints had a really shallow...fuzzy...faded "R" while the other joint was crisp and clean.
I also noticed that the doll has some very horrible seams. They are not double seams, but just very prominent. I have never owned any other pre-2012 super gem body, so I have nothing to reference in a case like this. There was no certificate. The box provided was for a different Soom doll they had as the sticky note on it read "Galena".
