I know I said I would buy a head for face-up practice and it would be a DIM Larina, but usually plans don’t work as expected, I am quite impulsive about getting dolls and that’s what happened! Face-up practice will have to wait because I got a new Bimong/D-Storic Narae 416!!! She was available at DoA, brand new (this person that bought 2 Naraes and decided to keep just one) and I couldn’t resist! I have been dying to have a “darker” skin doll (she is Korean Real Skin, a beautiful light brown) and Naraes are beautiful sculpts/dolls but that I always thought out of my reach (maybe because of all the complications in buying them…), so she was perfect!!! And my boyfriend was sweet enough to indulge me…even if there was the usual question: “But you have so many dolls already, why buy another one?” Hehe, yeah…dolls are never to many, I guess! But I promised him that after Ldoll I will calm down a little with doll expenses, let’s see!
Narae 416 is not a very popular sculpt but I love her serene and realistic face and I think she will work well for what I want to do with her, I am already planning her character, but I will wait for her to get here and get a face-up to decide for sure. 😉
I am currently looking for European Artists for her face-up, I have some people in mind but nothing sure yet. Maybe you have a suggestion? (I prefer within Europe because I always get so nervous sending my dolls away, especially if there is customs in the middle) :S
Here are some pictures made by the previous owner (find her here on DeviantArt: Satu) , to show off my new girl:
