OOAK Peak's Woods Rogita on eBay

Be still my heart--there's a gorgeous OOAK Peak's Woods girl on eBay, currently being auctioned off by DollHeart. She'd be the best Christmas gift ever! (Hint, hint!)

There are two days left on this auction, and the doll will ship from Hong Kong. Included in the auction are:

  • Peak's Woods Rogita, normal skin with face up (she can wear both SD13 and SD16 size outfits)
  • 1 pair of 18 mm eyes
  • flat feet and heel feet
  • wig
  • shoes
  • OOAK Bloody Alice outfit, red version by DollHeart

Again--what's not to love? Peak's Woods, Alice and DollHeart. Mmmm!

  2. Hi! I'm interested in getting a BJD and have been doing research, including this blog and The Fashion Doll Review (you have a lot of helpful info on both sites! Thank you!). Anyway, I just have a couple of questions.

    1. The doll I'm considering is a Goodreau resin doll. What is your opinion of Goodreau? How poseable are they, both in ease of poseability and range of motion (e.i. can she touch her face, kneel, etc.)? Any other opinions on them would be great, too.

    2) One thing about a resin doll that concerns me is the yellowing. I read about using magic eraser on the body, but if I can't use it on her face because it will take off her faceup, how do I get the yellow off of her face?

    Thank you very much for your help!

  3. Oh, I forgot to mention in the comment above that the Goodreau doll I'm considering is one of their MSD/17" dolls, in case that's a factor in the poseability question. :)

    Thank you again!

  4. Yes--I LOVE Goodreau dolls. Their resin is simply fantastic. I've owned several sizes--from the 17" size on down--and I highly recommend them. Their arms are single-jointed, however, however, so (at least the ones I've owned) couldn't hold a pose while touching their face. If you want the doll to be able to touch their face, look for double-jointed arms.

    As far as yellowing--it's the nature of resin to yellow. And magic eraser probably won't remove yellowing--it's more of an internal process that turns resin yellow. In my experience, Goodreau's resin is top quality, so it's going to yellow very slowly. But the yellowing--as long as you don't store your doll in direct sunlight or fluorescent lighting, you won't speed up the process.

    Magic eraser is great for body stains (like dirt, or stains from clothing), but I wouldn't recommend using it on your Dolly's face. It will remove paint (and body blushing, if your doll has blushing or paint on her body). If you're really careful, it's fine to remove stains from the headcap, but again, be super careful.

    Do you have access to Den of Angels or have you accessed the Resin Cafe message board? Goodreau is off-topic on DoA but approved on Resin Cafe. Let me know if need access--send me a message on Flickr or Facebook!

    I hope this helps get you started. Let me know if you have any other questions--I'm happy to help. There's a terrific Yahoo! Group called American BJDs, dedicated to all American bjd designers. Paulette Goodreau is actually on the group. Also, there is a convention in St. Louis on 11/17 where she is the guest of honor (I will be there, too). Check it out, if it isn't too far!

  5. Thank you very much for your feedback! Time to get to work on saving up my money now. :)
    Unfortunately, though I would love to attend the convention (and am in love with that little dragon doll), it's too far away and out of my budget to go. Maybe sometime, though! And have a great time!

    I will check out DoA and Resin Cafe. I don't really belong to any forums (on any subject), but I'll probably have to look into joining these.

    Thank you again for your help!
