|This Liv's hands are starting to go yellow though!|
Her head is still nice and posable, and the skin tone matches nicely,(Except for the fact that the hands on the Liv doll have faded to a slightly yellowish colour.).
I checked, and the heads don't seem to be available on Ebay any more. But there are some on Aliexpress. In fact, what appears to be this head is on Aliexpress right now for 76 cents,with free shipping!(Wow! I feel cheated!)
There is also what looks like this head with shorter hair...
But what kind of quality is this head?Well the vinyl is nice. It's smooth and the colour is nice. The face paint isn't hand done, but it is applied well and looks good.The colours are nice too,other than maybe that yellow eye shadow.
I love the colour of the hair. It looks fairly dark and single toned in some of these pictures, but it's not. It's a great dark auburn colour with almost a purpley tint.
The hair is fairly thickly rooted,but it definitely wants to hang in the one direction it was rooted.
|It looks kind of sparse, but it took a bit a digging to uncover the roots. The hair itself is very thick. You can really see the red in it in these pictures with the flash.|
|The thickness is part of what makes the hair not want to cooperate. You are not going to want to do an upsweep with this hair.|
There's no guarantee yours will, but mine came with holes in the ears for earrings.(But no earrings.)
One of the people I follow on Flickr, Redmermaidwerewolf, had put a Kurhn head on an Ever After High Apple White body, and it looks really nice too. Of course, I doubt very much these are actual Kurhn heads. Most probably they are only heads copied from Kurhn heads. Having said that, now
there's the question,is it ethical to buy these if they are counterfeit heads? They could be cheap heads made by Kurhn,that didn't meet their quality standards and so they don't sell them under the Kurhn name, or that are sold off to a cheapo company to finish, which would account for the hair.
I'm pretty happy with this girl, even if I did pay more than I could have.
So I'll see you tomorrow for another doll.
