BJDs have been doing anthropomorphics for years, but most are tiny-sized cute things. There have been some Mini-sized (1/4, 45cm). But not many larger dolls. So I was intrigued by this one.
Hujoo has been making some resin dolls, but mostly they are known for ABS plastic bjds. This is the first ABS bjd I’ve owned. They feel a lot like resin. They have a nice matte surface. Maybe a little lighter, but still substantial. Apparently you can sand and paint like resin, but some paint cleaners will dissolve the plastic, so one has to be careful. Price was less, which was nice.
She came as a fullset (faceup, outfit, eyes, wigs, body blushing). I thought she was quite a good deal, really. I’m going to augment the body-blushing (more spots) and the faceup a bit… And although the dark wig is very nice, I think I’ll get her something lighter.

Face is pretty sweet. I still feel the need to darken it a tad.
Has a fair amount of character...
