Yesterday, my Hujoo Sara arrived . I’ve named her Carmela. I could barely wait to get her out of the box and paint her. I love how soft and vaguely sad her face looks. I thought I’d mention a couple of things though, for those interested in getting their own. 16mm eyes would be way too big for this girl. These are 14mm glass eyes from Blue Blood Doll (amazing quality glass eyes) and I almost feel I could go down a size. I believe Emory is listing the specifications directly from Hujoo, so I don’t think it’s a mistake on his part at all. The wig I ordered was also a size 7-8. It’s not engulfing her head, but I still feel like it’s too big (it falls off if she even leans backward). I can just add some velcro, though. A much better fit would be 6-7.
I love the ‘gear’ system in her joints. Posing is amazing and better still, the joints lock into place and -hold- the pose. She’s very well balanced and durable (she’s already taken a tumble from my computer tower O_O). I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, resin is just not for me. I’m way too clumsy. When I had them in the past, I was always terrified of breaking something.
I’ve also got a Hujoo Yomi on the way today! I know, I know. I thought I was done with them, too, but… have you seen this freakin’ face? It’s just about the cutest darned thing I’ve seen in a long time. I could -not- resist.
