Months ago I preordered my first 18″ MSD Kaye Wiggs doll from Jpop Dolls. Gracie was a new sculpt of Kaye’s and her beautiful face stole my heart. She was available in two resin colors: natural and sunkissed, three body sizes: 17″ (Talyssa, Mei Mei), 18″, and Toby size. I chose the sunkissed resin on the 18″ body.
I decided on the sunkissed resin because, for me, it is easier to photograph and looks great with everything. My Millie is sunkissed and Talyssa is natural resin, so I’ve had a chance to compare the two. Kaye’s sunkissed color is actually the same value as a Little Darling, so it is not dark at all. If you’d like to see both you can view my slideshow for each doll on my website. Here is Millie and here is Talyssa’s slideshow (you can click on the slideshow photos to see more of that particular ensemble if you’d like). What do you think?
Gracie arrived last Friday! I didn’t have any clothes for her to wear, but that didn’t stop me from taking some photos of her with her new “sister”, Talyssa. Please excuse the nude shots. I thought it was okay because they are dolls after all. (lol) Gracie and Talyssa became fast friends, just like Gina and Lucy, my Little Darlings, did last November. You can see Lucy’s welcome photos here.
I was so happy to receive brown eyes for Gracie, my first! I put Talyssa in her natural (the color she arrived in) eye color. Both girls wear 8″-9″ sized wigs and 15mm(Eyeco platinum)-16mm eyes, so can share. I’m hoping they can share clothes as well. I am currently making an ensemble using Talyssa’s patterns, so we will see if any adjustments are needed.
Gracie and Talyssa are both standing for these photos, so you can see the slight height difference. Their resin colors are very close in value.
For those of you interested in preordering Penny who is now available in tan, but aren’t sure about the tan resin, here is what I found out about the tan resin from Jpop Dolls. Kaye’s sunkissed resin color is only used for her dolls; tan Penny is a little darker and not as warm in hue. If you know the old Sasha dolls (sorry, I don’t) tan Penny is lighter than those. They mentioned that this tan resin is not dark at all compared to other tans that they use.
Hope your week is off to a great start! Are you as AMAZED as I am that this is the last week of February? Spring is right around the corner! Yay!
Bye for now, reader friends.
