Are the dolls fragile ?
As its name implies, the purpose of a hyper-realistic doll is as close as possible to reality : tactile contact, smoothness and suppleness of the skin, beauty of all parts of the body, such as hands, feet, sex, joints... Hyperrealism also provides the possibility to install the doll in various positions, and maintaining a natural appearance. Each model is equipped with an articulated skeleton. All of these qualitative attributes impose precautions. The dolls that we offer are real pieces of art, to be treated with appropriate delicacy.
Can we easily manipulate the dolls ?
The dolls can be positioned easily within certain limits not to exceed.
For example, as all silicone dolls, excessive rudeness could cause a tear in the sex. The internal metal skeleton allows a large number of positions but do not force on the joints, with the risk of breaking the silicone shell. The weight of the dolls is voluntarily high enough to offer a variety of movements close to reality, but requires some effort regarding manipulation.
What is the life time/duration of the dolls ?
The silicone used for our dolls is a durable material, it withstands extreme temperatures and does not deform over time.
However, some basic rules of use - clearly defined in our manuals - are to follow to ensure longevity of the dolls. In this case, it is impossible to give them a precise lifetime because it depends on careful handling.
Does the silicone lose shape over time ?
No ! The silicone used to make our dolls is perfectly designed to last without any distortion over time. For example, the fingers of the hands are not likely to stick together if the doll is not handled for some time.
The only precaution to take is not to leave too long (several days) the doll on a rattan chair for example, to avoid any marks on the legs or back.OPTIONS OF CUSTOMIZATION, MAINTENANCE :What options of customization are available for the dolls ?
All the customization options are detailed in the Options page
.What is the "functional fingers" option ?
When articulated, hands include flexible metal rods inside the silicone. The hands of our dolls can grasp light objects such as a glass. All natural hand positions are possible. The rate of this option : 359 Euros incl.VAT.
Without this equipment, the hand is "soft", since only made of silicone.Is it possible to apply ordinary make-up on the dolls ?
The dolls are already carefully made up with a permanent product. But you can easily add more makeup, such as lipstick, blush and eye shadow, mascara, kohl pencil, etc. The only product to avoid is "gloss", as it inevitably will flow over the silicone.
If you want to frequently make-up your doll by yourself, you can order a natural doll face, that is to say without any makeup.Is it possible to perfume the dolls ?
There are a variety of perfume compositions, all more or less concentrated in alcohol, which can damage the silicone. We recommend scenting the dolls at parts which are not visible (behind the head, behind ears, under the hair) or on clothing.Is the nail color final ?
No, we use ordinary nail polish, which can be easily removed with a solvent and a cotton cloth. So you can change the color of nail polish by yourself.Does the toes have any nails ?
