CONGRATS!!!!! :D You ordered a Crobi too!! xD
Thank you so much! ;u; I’ve been wanting to order a Tei ever since I joined the hobby but I kept putting it off! OTL (he’s actually the second doll I’ve ever wanted…) and to be honest it ‘still’ hasn’t really sunk that I placed the order and paid for it….
So I did a thing… also ordered: Calvaethor’s eyes, a necklace for Chihiro and Lavinia’s new wig…
Yay me? >.<
-___- She’s been logging on and off all day but hasn’t replied to my PM… //sobs for being impatient/
Anyone willing to part with their Minifee Ante sleeping head guys…? eh?
(Will be deleted later)
I will be buying a new doll soon and I am stuck between these three sculpts!! On the left is a Crobidoll Yeon-Ho, in the middle is a Little Monica Sarubia and on the right is a Crobi Heena!!
I also like the Chloe sculpt from Little Monica but I couldn’t find a picture that I liked xD
Well, the first question you should ask yourself is wether you want a boy or a girl doll? Then decide which sculpt you can envision better as what you want it to be. =)
I rarely have such problems… For me it’s more like : do I want x or y character home first… >.<;
Really unpopular opinion: While I respect Freakstyle as an artist and admire their sculpting ability the idea of an overweight doll sits wrong with me. Yes this is the shape of most American (and british and it’s even encroaching on other countries) women it’s still not something we should strive for as being “okay”. Despite what the Tumblr community thinks, being overweight is unhealthy. Yes. It actually is. Fat is not a body type. You have a shape with fat over it. The Salome doll is not the same as a doll chateau as doll chateau are stylized to have ridiculous proportions (and joints that don’t exist on humans). Same with any of the pear shaped art bodies, they’re stylized as opposed to modeled after someone who could be an irl human. This idea of thinking that overweight should be put on a pedestal is really really problematic.
P.S. Also before anyone calls “skinny fat shaming shitlord” I’m obese myself and losing weight. (Also please lord do not respond to this with the “health problems” thing)

It’d never even occurred to me that Salome might be thought of as obese - She’s literally my ideal body shape - Strong shoulders and pecs, big thighs, a bit of a beer gut. She could be a long-distance swimmer, an archer, a gardener, or just generally someone who does heavy work in the outdoors then goes to the pub for few pints of Black Maria afterwards. It’s not difficult to imagine her in a Barbour jacket and wellies, tracking back home across the fells with a couple of lambs under her arms after digging them out of a late snowdrift.
I kind of see her as someone that practices a strength based sport like wrestling or weight lifting, not body building where the goal is to build awesome looking muscles, but a sport that is about using them. Alternately she could be a fighter or paladin in a fantasy/medieval setting.
Sure, she looks “fat” next to your regular bjd, but I think anon might need to be reminded that regular bjds, 1/4 size in this case, goes far beyond what is humanly possible to achieve in real life, their anatomy is quite stylised, their legs are way too long and they are usually much thinner then what is normally possible.
First things first… I love Salome and actually want to own one -~- so my opinion is biased but I much agree with the people above. I don’t think Salome is fat, she is plump in the right areas and has beautiful curves like, you know, a real woman.
I’m also overweight and fighting to lose weight by the way, and “catwalk skinny” isn’t all that healthy either, just saying…

Someone took a candid photo of a fight in Ukranian Parliament that is as well-composed as the best renaissance art.
