My latest faceup project is ready for her reveal! We’re starting to get some spring weather here, so I rushed at the opportunity to start sealing some heads for faceups. Fortunately the weather had a few more good windows and I was able to finish up my first project for 2022 this weekend.
Rina has been on my wishlist for ages, but like her buddy Yuki she’s always been pretty pricey. With interest in these older model dolls falling, I kept an eye out for my opportunity. As luck would have it, a blank and somewhat stained head popped up on Mandarake so I was able to snag her. Getting a floating head is ideal since I don’t need her outfit and the DD2 body is not worth the cost of shipping it.
As soon as she arrived I sketched out some faceup ideas. I waffled a bit, but ended up doing one mostly like 3 with a beauty mark like 2.
I tested out the DDS body and it looks like a good fit for her- I think if she and Yuki got released nowadays they’d be on DDS. The outfit is a mix- Volks blouse, Azone cardigan, and skirt/socks sewn by me.
I’ve got a couple more faceup projects in the works, so look forward to it!
