Apathy ...

This year has been "lackluster" at best.   It has really affected my attitude about collecting, and I've struggled with remaining enthusiastic about my 12" dolls.

The year started out strong with my first newly released Integrity Toys doll, NuFace Polarity Nadja Rhymes.  With her hair pulled back, I really have grown to appreciate and enjoy this doll quite a bit.
In addition to Polarity, I had purchased two other dolls from this line:  Energetic Presence Giselle, and Voltage Erin.  Here is the link to the original post about these dolls:  NuFace New Releases

I have waited for several weeks for the head replacement for Voltage Erin.   When it arrived, I was pleased by the improvement.  The hair actually seems a little more strawberry blonde than the one I received initially.  The eyebrows are definitely more symmetrical, but the eye screening on the left eye is still a little off.  The eyeshadow on her right eye looks a deeper color and less crease is exposed.  It's a better version, but still not as good as the quality of IT dolls from a few years ago.
While I was sending off items for replacement, I included the skirt from Out All Night Lillith.  The packing receipt that came for the Erin head showed that the skirt was also included.  (You can see the defect in the earlier post by following this link: Out All Night Skirt Problem).  I excitedly tore into the package.  The only item inside was a pair of black shoes.  ????  I contacted Customer Care and have been assured the skirt is "in the mail". ….

Until it arrives, I guess I can redress and play with my wonky-eyed Erin.  It's not that noticeable in full length photos.
I guess we'll see what the Lillith/Eden gift set brings later this month.   The first IT reveal will be soon, but I am very reluctant to pre-order anything these days …  It is May 21 and no 2016 releases so far.
