Alexis Brace...vinyl issue

There is a chunk of vinyl on the inside of her right hand. Does anyone else have her and do you have the same issue?

I don’t have her but if all her kits have that flaw, you can cut some of it off with a small x-acto blade then smooth it with acetone on a q-tip.

Yeah, thats what I was planning to do but I just want to make sure its not just my kit…I hope not, I hate sending them back.

I wrote to Dolls so Real, where I bought her, they said the other kits all have the same thing and that they are going to let Cassie know about it. I didnt even notice the acetone thing until you just posted…I was rushed and didnt read. I thank you too @jeanhai I was going to file it a bit but the acetone may work better.

Even the acetone takes a bit of work. You might need to do both. I do this when I open the eyes on a closed eye sculpt. It works well.

Hmm I really wanted Alexis… should I wait and see if the next round of this kit gets fixed? Or is this a limited edition that I just need to snag right now?

According to Cassie Brace they are all like that and are not noticeable unless you bend the fingers back, I’m assuming that wont be fixed. I decided to leave mine there since they all have it and I don’t like the idea of cutting my dolls. Its true that you cant see it unless you bend the fingers back but I do that when I paint. Ill just try to make it look as natural as possible.

I just got her tonight and her face is the cutest!! Don’t like that hand issue, but I’ll live with it since the rest of her is sooo adorable! Bigger than I thought she’d be too!
