[REVIEW] NIGHT LOLITA DOLL
So I bought this 60cm vinyl doll from taobao last month and it arrived today! (I opted for sea shipping)
They are a cheaper alternative to bjds.
Packaging: The Night Lolita doll comes in a deluxe box which includes two sets one clothing and a pair of shoes and the doll itself. The box is huge. But as usual everything goes through so much flattening and wear during shipping from China. My poor doll’s face was squashed… I might try boiling her head to give her back her shape…
She stands quite well out of the box but isnt as stable as our resin bjds.
Posing and Articulation:
She has 15 articulation points and is double jointed. Her joints are made up of hinges. But her head is strung using elastic. Her arms and legs are also rotable so that she can pose pretty well.
There are two types of Night Lolita heads. This one is the newer Yuri head which is cuter and looks more like your usual bjd. She has a very simple face up and pearly coral lips. Her eyes are acrylic and are put in her head like a bjd’s. I will be removing her face up and repainting her. The problem is that there is no opening at the back of her head for me to change her eyes. I would have to cut her head open. I would be shaving off some vinyl to change her eye shape too.
Her clothes are well detailed but the material is pretty thin and cheap. The shoes are pretty well made as well. Pretty much like what we get from the usual bjd shops in taobao.
The shop I ordered her from offered an additional outfit+wig+shoes so I got 3 outfits two wigs and two pairs of shoes with the doll.
The wig quality is not as good as that of normal bjds. The hair strands tend to tangle easily and are quite fine. Pretty much like monster high/barbie hair.
As a whole I am quite pleased with the doll. I paid around $55 usd for her and everything she comes with. I wouldn’t mind buying another as I saw another girl that I like.
Ps tagging bjd because people might be interested in her.
