MATERIAL AND TECHNIQUE
The doll is hand sculpted by me, Emilia Nieminen, and cast in super limited quantities (LE10 per resin tone) from high quality polyurethane resin. The resin was specially developed to have translucency that mimics human skin: eyelids and ears turn transparent and red against back light.
The doll has 25 points of articulation including double joints in elbows and knees to allow them to bend fully, allowing the hands to touch shoulders and the doll to kneel in Japanese seiza sitting position. The hip joints have a unique design without visible slitted double ball style, but allowing the same range of movement. You can see the way the doll moves in this video.
The Inamorata aesthetic is fit and healthy, inspired by ballet dancers such as Misty Copeland, showing beautiful lean muscles yet staying feminine. In addition to muscle definition there is much sculptural detail in skin texture, veins, tendons and wrinkles. The silicone moulds used to cast these art dolls can only be used a few times to capture all the detail, hence the limited quantities, and higher price of the sculpture.
Inamorata 4.0 uses 10mm eys and has 3 eye options:
exchangeable eye with 2 mm concave textured irises
exchangeable eye with 3mm concave textured irises
glue in fillers for classic painted eyes (come installed and have to be glued in before painting)
Eyes are included in the doll (blank eyes with blank dolls, painted with OOAKs), but you can buy extras if you want more colour options.
You can choose between 4 bust options: S, M, L and a solid M bust for those who prefer clean sculptural beauty over poseability. You can read more about the busts here.
