1. Should I get her in NS or TS?
Pros to TS: It seems like she would be tan, if she lived in the desert her whole life-- So accuracy... I would be able to sell her for at least what I paid if I changed my mind.
Cons to TS: Its limited, so I would have to decide right away. The parts aren't interchangeable between NS/TS so she couldn't share any body parts. No mods. I don't know if I'd like to mod her yet, but if I do decide to, I wouldn't be able to. It would take FOREVER to get her. DDE is swamped with orders right now, plus TS takes extra time to make so I would have to wait about three months (if not more.) and that is very depressing.
Pros to NS: I would be able to freckle her a TON an every single one would show up. I would be able to get her much sooner. I love the idea of the dark hair/light eyes/light skin contrast.
Cons to NS: She wouldn't be tan. :(
2. Should I give her a faceup myself, or try for a slot with Xhanthi over at Jointed love?
3. Should I wait to get her, or try to scrape up the cash now?
I think I can get the $$ together by the time I need to purchase the secondhand girl, or I can save up (for sure) by the end of the TS ordering period. I have a few things to sell, and a few custom orders coming through. The second hand doll is $450, for the full doll with faceup and regular/heel feet. I have that much in savings, but I'd really like to keep that around for emergencies. Anyeays, I'm obviously at a crossroad, and I would like a few opinions! Thank you so much for your help, and for reading my crazy everything!
Here's a picture of a GORGEOUS doll (not my picture) that spurred this whole idea. Ideally, I'd like her to look just like this-- But she would be SO pretty in TS too! :(
Ohhhhhh So pretty! I just LOVE her so much!!!
Here's a link to her clothing 'wish list' on etsy, the good news is that she can share a lot of clothing with Scathatch so I won't have to buy as much. :)
