Is it just me or does the head seem slightly smaller than a regular MT head?

I like her face more too, it's so sweet.

I don't have the real thing to compare to, but compared to Barbie or MH, the plastic does feel lighter, so I suspect they're re-casts. It's still pretty solid, though, and they both hold poses extremely well.  I've seen MH fakies that cost way more and weren't this well-made, so I'm really pleased.

Here's a crappy comparison pic.  ^^; Seriously, sorry, but my laptop broke and I'm stuck using my phone.

Okay! I got my dollies (thanks to my husband going to the post office to sign for them since he wasn't home when the postman came by<3), I should have read the description closer on the Monster Elves "Scaris" fakie since it said there was a "chance" the box would get flattened in shipping since they do not ship in boxes "to cut shipping costs". More like it WILL get crushed.

The Monster Girl Monster-conic Lipgloss Set I actually paid less for that came in a much larger box was boxed & not bagged. The box received a little damage but nothing like the other. LOL

And then The fakies with the real Wydowna in the middle:

From a far you cannot really tell that they are fakies like bewilderness had stated earlier. When you actually handle them you can tell by the way the limbs are flimsy (imagine the feel of MH hands taken and then used for the legs (below the knee) and arms (including the upper arm). The heads are thinner and lack a lot of the facial contouring that the original has. The eye sockets that have the actual iris' are sunken in indents (like the EAH girls), and the bug eyes are missing the appearance of eybrows. The texture of the hair reminds me of the hair that Barbie fakies have if you're ever had the chance to play with those. The clothes of both girls require you to pull the head off to change - luckly the heads are anchored a bit like a CAM head. I'm liking the way the blue, gold, & purple look against her and I have a feeling that one will be rooted in a bright purple & one in a deep topaz blue.

Oh goodness... I've avoided fakies this long, but Maddie heads might do me in. I love prototype stuff, even weirdly colored prototypes.

Here she is.

Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.

As you can see, she has the same body as the Liv fakie. They're both made by the same fakie company, "Happy Toys", and they both cost about $3.

Her clothes are nothing special, but I was surprised to see she's actually wearing a wig! It's the exact same wig as the Liv fakie, only longer and without the braids.

You know, it's weird but I think I actually like the Moxie Teenz head on the Liv body better than the Liv heads. Liv heads always looked a little.. off to me. (No offense to anyone who likes/liked them.) I like her!  :biggrin: How is the quality of the doll as far as construction goes? Do you think she's made of genuine parts, or re-casts?

Ooh, me too!  Any way you'd be willing to pick up one of those fakies for me?  :bateyes:

I picked up this girl today. She has the exact same mold as a MH doll, except she's lacking knee joints and her hips make a terrbile noise when you bend her.

Actually her mold is almost the same as Nefera. I have all four of the glitter ones but there are also ones that are regular pastel colors.

Where do you guys find the Twilight Teens dolls? I've been craving Ghostilla and now I really need all three of those new ones! I have no idea where to look! I'm in Florida, if that helps.

hey dear fakie Wydowna owners: do these fakie girls have normal MH feet, or are they smaller? I am still very tempted to get one to reroot, but can't decide which type to get. I was already thinking it's just the box and clothes that differ, and the doll herself is the same underneath, so I can just go for the cheapest one available, but then I saw the one whith the umbrella (also available on eBay), and she seems to have small feet. upon closer inspection, the one that has the white spiderweb boots and the red-silver dress also seems to have feet that don't fill the shoes all the way. the one Michelle has seems to have normal-sized feet, but after all I'm not sure anymore...
Barbie-sized feet freak me out, so I'd love to make sure I don't get one with those >_<

wow, I don't know what to say about the MT fakies... I love Liv bodies, but MT heads always seemed off on them (but then again, Liv heads also seemed off on their own bodies :P ). I'm currently searching for Liv bodies to give some of my dolls better articulations, and I never thought of looking for fakies. hm, tempting...

Clearly, for those of us who love fakies, Michelle is our unquestioned and rightful queen.  :biggrin:
