*ded*

I am shocked. He's finally here. One year, two months, nine days.


israfel

I don't even know how to act. First impressions:
Hate his knees. Yay they lock, but they're so freaking finicky!! EDIT: Ugh, just realized his elbows are the same as his knees :P :P Maybe with use I'll get used to them!
Also hate scary metal dome in head D:

inside head

S-Hooks. They rock!
His Faceplate does not stay on well, but I expected that what with all the complaining in the waiting room, I love his hands, he doesn't slouch as well as Alex (who does?), his feet are SD13 size which always weirds me out...big dolls should have big feet!! Why do all my big dolls have feet the same size as Alex, who is 58cm tall on a good day?? But he's no the only one so it's not something I obsess over. He can't have stemmed eyes, due to the dome of doom, so the eyes I have in him are temporary til I find better ones in a smaller size. This was all I had that were stemless.

He's wearing his one shirt, which I think is too big for him, and the pants from Metatron's (DM Glamor Model Ripley Days) fullset outfit which are the only pants I have that will fit over his GIANT ASS!! WTF?! I knew it would be big, but I thought big compared to the old body which had no ass at all. No, it's huge. He has a shelf.

Wig is too big for him, which doesn't surprise me, but I couldn't find the other one I had...No clue what happened too it, which pisses me off cause I just had it a couple weeks ago!!

So basically I have no wig, eyes or clothes for him at all XD
Serves him right for taking so damn long *shakefist*

Was it worth it?

No. I can't imagine any doll being worth waiting for more than a year. He's very pretty, but I still think Alex III (Dollmore Cold Heartbroken Kara Klum LE) is prettier. III was also my dream doll, whom I bought almost as soon as he was finally released, and have had for 3 years, so...my poor Saint (I have to get used to that. I keep wanting to call him "the" Saint, which is impersonal enough for me to put him on the sell list after awhile) doesn't come close no matter what.

But I don't hate him like I thought I might. No hatred at all. I'm not sure I'll love him, which is not great, but...I'm going to hang on to him awhile. Give him a chance. Who knows, maybe when he's got a good outfit, decent wig and has Cassiel sitting on his knee he'll be perfect as Israfel and life will be good!! *crosses fingers*

And here is one more for the road!!
saint plates

Good god I have 4 dolls with me at work D:
I have no idea how I"m going to get them home!!

I seriously can not even imagine waiting over a year for a doll. Over a YEAR. Like, 4 months is TORTURE, and you waited over a YEAR. I'm pretty sure I would be like, what... I... did I ORDER THIS? Oh. Eh.

ALthough, I'm a little amused that you had a YEAR to get things together for him and don't have it! :P

Not that I can talk, my new ltf is still faceless and more or less stuck in ill fitting Justin Bieber clothes for the moment.

Dude tell me about it...I rebought my MNF Karsh in 2011 from DDE through FL and the four month wait flew by and I didn't even notice it because I was still going "it's been HOW long Dollshe??". I still can't believe it.

LOL I IS EPIC DOLLFAIL! XD I think it's kind of funny too, I have all these excuses as to why I have nothing for him after a year, but...really, I think I'm just lame :B

Dome = scary
I may have some SD 17 clothes in my unposted sales stuff that would fit him. O.o. I can't wait to see him. He looks paper white, is he?

The dome is super scary. I'm going to have to poke at it to figure out how it works. Or I could go read where everyone has already done it and posted. Meh. *pokes*

:D Can we have a fashion show next week?? *waves cash*
That might be the thing!

oh yeah, he's paper white! I think impressions of what is WS and what is NS are off in Dollshe/Dollstown-land. They seem to think that Freshskin is a pale normal, which it isn't, it's a creamy white. So the Pale is super-white! I might have ordered the fresh if I'd known that, but I haven't disowned Anna yet and she's easily this white, so I'm sure it'll be fine....

Nikita's dome thingy fell off immediately and I keep forgetting to put it back in...

I have poster tack around the head back to help keep his face plate on, those magnets are a JOKE. And I rethreaded his arms with spare iple s hooks, but I've yet to locat his body knot to do his feet. I don't mind his knees and elbows, they're a LOT less hassle than EID joints. Finally yes that ass is HUGE, Nikita sat down and ripped out the pockets in his jeans! (They were pretty badly sewn on but still...)

That's good to know, I was wondering if the dome was really needed or if it was just to cover up the mechanism. I'll probably take it out, it's even interfering with his stem-less eyes :\

So far I think I've been lucky. His face is staying on really well. The only time it fell of is when I was fighting with his wig. Other than that, I tried to jostle it off and it stayed!

And omg have you had trouble with his penis in pants?? It's so big my roommate has issues making him clothes XD

Today was special.
Congrats on finally getting him -- the 1+ yr wait was indeed extreme. I have a Rosen on order and am hoping it won't come to that >_> I do hope you bond with him though! After all that waiting, he better be good for something, lol.

Re: Today was special.
lol that's exactly what I'm hoping too! and why I didn't cancel my order when so many others were!

I hope your Rosen doesn't take as long! What skin color is he?? They favor other colors over Pale...they pretty much told me that when I asked how long it would take to get my doll too me way back in November...

Re: Today was special.
I got him in pale tan -- I'm hoping that they do get to him in a reasonable timeframe ^_-;; But I'm gearing up to wait. I don't have a character for him yet, but I loved the sculpt and he interrupted all my doll buying plans with his insistence that he was next to be bought... Sigh. Oh well.

Have fun with your Saint :) I'm jazzed to see what you do with him!

Re: Today was special.
You might get lucky! It seemed like tan was something they are in a bigger hurry to get out!

I like Rosen...I've been wondering if I should have gotten him instead of Saint...Too late now! XD

Re: Today was special.
I actually want a Saint on the crazy 35 part body XD But I'm trying to not derail my doll plans anymore than I already have..

And yeah, seems like they like to put out the tans first, then the paler skins. Got my fingers crossed to have him by June *fat chance**wishful thinking*

Yay, he's home!! *grin* Wow. I... had no idea that these dolls had a huge metal dome in their heads. That seems so weird to me... I've just never seen anything like it. I thought S-hooks were standard?? Guess I still have a lot to learn about this hobby. *laugh* Does the dome just cover up an S-hook? How does the dome attach the head to the body? *is so curious*

I'm glad he's home and I really hope he works out for your character... but I can say after seeing the pictures that this is not a doll I'd be wanting to add to my group. I definitely go for the more stylized look. But he's still handsome (in a very objective sense). Congratulations on finally completing your Dollshe order!! ^__^

Ugh, I think the metal dome is a new thing for the new bodies...It's not a standard DS feature. That I know of, I guess I've only seen the inside of the old ones, not any of the newer ones XD
It covers up some weird Mechanism I'm going to have to poke at to figure out D: If I could remove it and replace with an shook I so would, but I think it's permanent.

Ha ha I think he is kind of stylized XD He's certainly on the realistic end, but not as much as Pilot (AiL Elijah)...I would put him around Iplehouse I guess. He's kind of cold looking, which gives him a sculpted look, so I think even David is a little more real looking. Who knows. I'm hoping he'll work out. I noticed he has the faintest smile, which I think will be the thing that gets me to keep him...

I got off work last night and thought MUST SEE IF JOO GOT YOUR SAINT and then got home ate and fell asleep LOL I am SOOOO excited he came. I had not heard of the big asses I am so out of it in dollie land right now srsly but I am so pumped he came and you don't hate him get him situated and give yourself time to get used to having him!!! How exciting!!

LOL I think the big ass thing is only discussed in Dollshe land...a lot in the waiting room, and probably the discussion threads, but I don't go there so who knows. The old DS body had no ass apparently, so I guess they made up for it on this body.

I don't think I hate him yet...He's on my desk at work (I meant to take his picture but forgot)...I'll probably take him a couple more times. That's how I get used to dolls XD

I wish I could take mine to work it would make me feel less guilty having them when all they do is look good on my desk at home LOL
