INAMORATA 3.0 FAQ

*ARTICLE UPDATED 10TH OF APRIL

I am excited to announce that the 4 months of painstaking hand sculpting is finally over and the much anticipated Inamorata 3.0 prototype is done ( and safely arrived to the caster).

BANNER

There have been a lot of questions about the new body so I wanted to write an article answering the most frequent ones from Instagram and Facebook.

“When is the new Inamorata 3.0 available for preorder?”

Hopefully we can start the preorders in May. I have sent prototype to the caster and will announce preorders open when I have an accepted sample in my hands.

“How much will the dolls cost?”

The blank dolls with one pair of hands and feet will be 900usd. I haven’t got the price info for the extra feet and hands yet.

“What has changed?”

The new generation Inamorata 3.0 has more torso and neck joints, shoulders and hips with enhanced mobility, new pairs of optional feet and hands, resculpted nape of the neck and insertable eyes.  In addition to all this new expression there is more sculptural detail and the body has more athletic look.

“Does the doll have painted or insertable eyes?”

Best of both worlds. The options are:

  1. Ready made insertable eyes so you can change eye colour and direction of the gaze.
  2. Insertable eye base so you can make your own.
  3. Filler eyes that can be glued in and painted for traditional look.

“Are the old feet still available?” “Can I buy ballet and flat feet for my older Inamorata dolls?”

Yes, the old high heeled feet are still available, though improved, and fit most 16″ doll shoes. The new ballet feet and flats are optional, can be bought separately and come with their own shoes. If you want to order a resin shade matching an older doll you should do so in the preorder stage as not all skin tones will be stocked.

feet

Close up of the Inamorata 3.0 feet options:
  1. Refreshed high heeled feet in a size that makes sharing shoes easy. I added more detail to show the strain of wearing that classic 6 inch stiletto heels.
  2. New ballet feet (with their own pointe shoes) showing all the painstaking hard work that goes into the art of ballet. I loved sculpting all the wrinkles in the soles of the feet! 
  3. New flat feet (with their own shoes too) for more relaxed Audrey Hepburn elegance. I purposefully made these in a size that fits most action figure shoes in case your doll wants to be sporty in sneakers or combat boots!

feet2

“Can I buy new hands for my older Inamorata dolls?”

Yes you can. There is a completely new pair of ballet hand sculpts, 3 other new hands sculpts, and 3 updated old favourites. All the pairs will be available to be bought separately. Like with feet, you should order at the preorder stage to make sure you get a resin tone matching your older dolls as not all colours will be stocked.

hands

“Will you still stock the old generation streamlined bodies?”

Unfortunately my home business is too small to carry large stock and having two molds open at the factory is too expensive. There are still few streamlined bodies left, so if you prefer that please contact me to reserve one ASAP. The old body will fit the new heads too if you want to mix and match.

“How many head sculpts will be available?”

All 5 head sculpts have evolved new looks and have been renamed for clarity. These 5 new sculpts will continue in production, where as the older sculpts will retire. If you love an particular older head, contact me to reserve one ASAP. They can be used on the new body too. That makes the head sculpt count 10 for the moment. I am also working on a entirely new head, my very first Anglo-Saxon one that will celebrate mature beauty. These are the new updated heads (with insertable eyes) and their evolutionary steps are:

  1. Charo                      => Alita
  2. Nnaji => Nnaji2.0  => Nsia
  3. Miao  => Midori    => Chie
  4. Valerie                    => Shani
  5. Nubia                      => Sura

Please don’t hesitate to ask any questions. I will keep you posted with the progress! Here are some more pictures of the next generation for you to enjoy!

Wax Sculpting Inamorata 2007-2012

Doing backups, I found a forgotten folder in an old hard drive. It had contained immense nostalgia: wax sculpting photos from over a decade ago when my dream of a doll of my own began.

Inamorata dolls weren’t released until late 2012, but on 2007 I was already making the very first 12″ sized wax models for my own doll. You can see the first immobile sculpture standing next to my early repaints of Momoko and Integrity dolls, before I cut it apart to make joints. Truly the humble beginnings but the shape of the doll is already recognisable Inamorata.

The curious thing is, I had forgotten that my 2007 prototype actually had a moving neck joint! At the time, the main market was for mannequin type fashion dolls, and together with my business partner Jing we decided that breaking the neck area with a joint was too visible and scrapped the idea in the end. However, the trend now seems to be towards mobility and I’ve been playing with the idea of bringing this early concept to life.

These photos are from the 16″ final version I was hand sculpting on 2012. I also had no idea at the time of the shrinkage caused by mold making and resin casting. My wax models shared the exact measurements (although very differently distributed) of my then favourite dolls: Numina and Sybarite. However, the final doll ended up losing almost 2cm in height and being rather petite next to her inspiring sisters.

Jing and I really had no idea how to go about doll production and the first few years were an nightmare of trial and error, dreadful factories and other hardships, but we learned as we went along. Hard times but also happy ones, as we worked towards our dream. For many years it was a part time job / hobby for both of us. I taught Chinese and arts to stay afloat. It makes me so happy that now I can make a living doing what I love. That’s the greatest treasure of all.

The garments are revamped prototypes of my earlier designs, the boots from an action figure and purse from Fashion Royalty. Boots and purse are crusted with spikes, painted with emo goth slogans such as “not interested”, “don’t care”, “die die die” and “kill kill kill”, as well as Japanese and punk symbols. One pair of her 6 hands is accessorized by painted on gloves.
