Frustration

Last week, I introduced my new Out Sass Vanessa.  I ended up with two because she was the last 12" exclusive in the W Club.  I knew last year that I wanted to go to the W Club Convention.  Just in case my husband decided to go with me (which he did), I got a W Club membership for him also. 

I didn't order the upgrade dolls last year.  I didn't order any W Club doll until Out Sass.  Included with your W Club membership is a $20 credit toward the purchase of a W Club doll.  Since I hadn't purchased anything all year, I had to get two Out Sass or lose one of the $20 credits.

When I opened the second doll to check her, I was in for a big surprise.  The two dolls look very different.
Their eyes and foreheads are not the same.  The one on the left looks very feminine and soft.  She has a higher forehead which makes her face look more oval.  The lower eyelashes are separated from the upper.  The one on the right looks more dramatic.  Her eye makeup looks darker.  The eyelashes meet.  Her forehead is lower, giving her a rounder looking face.

I had posted the one on the right for sale; then realized the difference with the help of a doll friend.  What to do?!  I called my deboxed Vanessas to help make a decision.
They wanted to know why Out Sass was getting deboxed while "Glow", "Metal Maven", "Temptation", and "High Point" were still in their boxes.  I didn't have an answer.  But it is important to choose which one is staying, so the other can find a good home.  We still haven't reached a decision.  Any help from my readers would be appreciated.  (By the way ... I have come to realize there are too many Vanessa dolls living here, but I can't bring myself to part with these girls.)

So ... I decided to take this time to finally choose a model for the Poesie Vanessa sheath I highlighted in an earlier post.  I knew this would take my mind off this confusion ... redressing is always a good distraction.  The doll chosen to wear the new ensemble is ....
I think she really does this outfit justice.  And since I was redressing ... the Hazelstreet Jeans I ordered during their Easter sale arrived.  A couple of my NuFace models insisted on getting out of their winter clothing and stand in line for tickets for a summer concert.
I think Nadja is such an under-rated doll.  She is difficult to photograph, but she is so exotic.  I think it is about time we got another version of Ms Rhymes.
What was this blog about again?  .... Oh, yeah ... what to do with Out Sass.

I guess I won't be any help because I love the version on the right lol. Ms Wright is gorgeous...see what I did there gave her a name and everything :-)

Thank you for showing two Out Sass dolls side-by-side. I was mystified when mine arrived - her screening seemed harsh to me. I thought it was all in my head until I read your post this morning. There is such a difference and I now comprehend that the same dolls can look very different. Mine appears to have the facial sculpt of the left one, but with the more dramatic eye makeup screening of the one on the right. That suggests there are multiple renditions of this doll. I prefer soft screenings, but there is something to be said for the more dramatic look of the one on the right given that her hair color is so bold. I look forward hearing which one you decide to keep.

I think you should keep the one on the left. The other one's make-up looks more garish (a redhead doesn't need that much); I mean, I like dramatic makeup, but this one seems it has been applied by an apprentice.
Christie.
PD: I love your Kyori and her redressing...How I miss her former sculpt!

I like the one on the right more, you made me laugh about the other Vanessa's complaining why aren't they out of the box first hhahahahaa :))) and I love Kyori as well!

I have to say I am annoyed with this different screenings, I just noticed that my Eugenia world on a string has very different screening compared to the other ones from different blogs, now, every time I look at her it really bothers me, so much that I will probably let her go...

I prefer the Vanessa on the left, she's more youthful and the screening looks cleaner. :)

That's just so crazy that they're so different like that... it almost looks like the screening slipped on the one whose eye liner doesn't meet up. Strange.

But they're both still pretty XD

You have one doll with two looks. A day look (left) and a night look (right). LOL! So for me it would depend on your dressing intentions. I love both looks. The one is on the right is more dramatic and stands out more to me.

It really comes down to which type of style you prefer in your collection and only you can answer that. With that said, I think the one on the left (as you look at the picture) has a much wider face & forehead... and I dont like that in a doll.
I like darker screenings because sometimes I think the pale ones can appear too washed out ooking....therefore, for me, the one on the right would hands down. Whatever you decide will be right for you!!
