Review of Dollshe Arsene doll

Order date: 1st February 2017
Order shipped: 4th April 2017
Arrived at my door: 10th April 2017

There’s many reasons why I love the Dollshe Arsene:

(1) That face! It’s not exactly handsome, in fact it’s a little quirky and unusual, but that’s what makes it beautiful to me. I’m always attracted to things that are not overt or explicit. I think he has the potential to wear many different expressions. No kidding I really want to paint 100 Arsenes!

Painting Faceup Dollshe Arsene

Wow it’s official! The Dollshe Arsene is my most favourite doll. The face shape is very pleasing and versatile, you can turn him into a sweet character or a mature character. The resin from Dollshe is the best to paint and it’s available in so many different colours.

I hope to paint a hundred of them. That’s right, 100 Arsene faces!! Lol… I don’t know if it can be possible, but I can dream…

For now I’d just like to share with you all two that I’ve painted so far… (98 more to go!)

Dollshe Arsene Comparison Photos Venitu and Old Hound body

I’ve recently got my Dollshe Arsene (ordered on 1st February 2017 and arrived 10th April 2017). Oh my God… when I saw Arsene’s face I fell even harder! He’s soo beautiful! Most perfect face ever 🙂 where the Venitu to me is an image of strength and poise, I think the Arsene is an image of gentleness and vulnerability. They are both really lovely and compliment each other: like a Yin to a Yang.

I haven’t had a chance to paint mine yet, but I took some photos of him next for comparison purposes:

Sculpting BJD Head – Part 1

I was given this pack of Das paper clay about 5 years ago and I’ve never really done anything with it other than prop my desk lol. So one day when I was bored I tinkered with it and tried to make a doll head. These pics are several weeks ago before I stuffed up my hand.

The first thing I did was used my Dollshe Saint Old Hound Body as a reference for size. I’ve stuck his torso part onto a box so I can turn it around while I work on the head because I didn’t have a lazy susan. Then I used a balsa wood stick which I wrapped with some foil to give me a ‘head start’ (still with the bad puns I’m sorry!)
