The autumn weather is a bit delayed this year, so by dodging some extra-smoky days I was able to squeeze in another batch of faceups. First up is another Shoushou Doll Niko, this time in tan skin!
I pre-ordered tan Niko last year, and it took almost exactly a year for her to arrive. I was starting to get nervous since the package tracking didn’t work but fortunately she arrived safely.
As with the earlier Niko releases, the were 3 option heads available – I picked up the regular head as well as the head with a wide-open mouth. I decided to paint her big smile face to experiment with some more vibrant faceup colors in the mouth and eyelashes.
Niko is wearing an outfit by Ronshuka Couture with a Himekazura wig and eyes made by me. Niko’s tan skin tone is a good match for Volks Dollfie Dream tan. It’s only a bit darker and warmer than the default skin tone.
I really love the proportions and posing of Niko’s body- that’s probably how I ended up with two, even though I’m pretty picky about resin dolls. Also I like the idea of being able to swap some DD heads with this body, and maybe wear some dark, potentially staining outfits without fear.
In conclusion: Blueberry Niko vs Strawberry Niko, which fruit is superior? :D
