Eloisa by Andrea Arcello arrived

I got my Eloisa today and my gosh! she is small. She is probably about the size of Jewel. I did not expect her to be this tiny.

Now I really want her. I like the little ones.

I think I ordered her because of her mouth. She’s able to take a small pacifier or her thumb. I don’t call for small babies. Si I gotta figure out if I’m gonna loose my 10.00 or pay her off n sale her.

Can someone please post a close up of inside the mouth? Thanks! From what I see doesn’t seem to be much details in her little mouth… Hoping I am wrong. Such a sweet little baby.

Her beside Darren.

Over all, I would say that she is poorly detailed except for her feet.


Also, I have her on a 19" realborn body. I am not so sure that I won’t trade it for front leg or maybe even 3/4 leg. I still love her, though. Jewel was a surprise favorite of mine, so I am excited to see how Eloisa comes out.

Thanks! I won’t be getting her after all. I like a lot of details in the kits I purchase and she clearly is lacking SO much detail. Such a shame because I have seen other sculpts by this sculptor and they are all beautifully detailed.

I love your Darren!

I forgot to pre order separately, so I won’t get mine until Jocy is ready to ship, but oh well. She is a tiny little thing! For some reason I was picturing her as more of a newborn size. The lack of detail doesn’t bother me. Sometimes it’s fun to challenge myself. :slightly_smiling_face:

Oh I hope I didn’t come off as snoody. I just personally love all the little details. Wasn’t paying attention to how I worded it.

Not at all! :grin:

I definitely like the detailed kits as well. They are usually easier to bring to life… but every once in a while, I don’t mind an old BB kit or one like this without a ton of detail. It forces me to up my game with contour, shading, highlights, and other details. That’s all. :blush:

Edited to add that lots of people are sensitive to… almost everything these days. I’m not one of them. It is really difficult to offend me.

Oh good! I always go back and think hm did I word this right?! haha. Those realborns have me spoiled to the details. lol

Yes!! Definitely this! Realborns have ruined many kits for me. Lol Expensive ones at that! Left up to me, I would probably just mostly stick with them because that really is the ultimate in realism.

Thank you :slight_smile: He is a keeper. I thought I would sell him until I got a serious offer and then I knew I wouldn’t be letting him go.

I don’t like how her left arm looks at the bend

Ugh! I hate kits like that. :frowning: I wish they would not okay production if the bends are like that

Now this I do have a problem with. Don’t like that one bit.

I see what you mean, but I think once it’s painted it will look okay.
