Not very impressed I am afraid. For one I do not like the face sculpt. But the body is more of a problem . I can understand his attraction well enough as a nude figure. However.... unless we are going to be dressing him exclusively in loincloths and bearskins, he can't be dressed in any normal male clothing. I have seen Tom Courtneys posts about dressing this doll, and despite Courtney's skill, he looks like Frankenstein in his clothing -- he is just too hefty. All that rugged bulk makes it difficult for clothing to lie properly, and it must be a bitch to try to dress him (I cannot imagine trying to get long sleeves on those arms). He will remain an accessory for the Kingdom ladies who will probably keep him in a cage nude anyhow. L. ; -)
I'm sure everyone will be so happy to see your critique.
This was not directed toward your blog.. There are many people that love the Kingdom dolls and I feel L's post was very rude and unprofessional toward the Kd doll,. Why the bashing?
I love Kinsman male doll and as my opinion they are the best male doll figure I have seen and what's wrong in swimtrunks , now a days peopel loves their dolls to dressed in different dresses and I have seen them in pics their face sculpt is amazingly best.
I am happy to see that Kinsman, along with many other fashion doll sellers are FINALLY selling male dolls. My first was a Mr. Chic. While I like the look of a Mr. Chic more than the Kinsman, the fact that another company is making a widely accessible male doll is - fantastic. Hopefully there will come a day when we can choose between male dolls with the discrimination we do female dolls. Right now, we just have so few to choose from. It'll be great to see the fashions we get, the new wigs, etc. as these become more mainstream. I think it's only going to get better.So those not thrilled with these, I think, just wait...and we are going to see some great things.-Femme
Thank you for your thoughtful comments. I agree!
Can't wait to see more of the Kinsman dolls. I don't have a desire to purchase them but I'm sure they'll be a sell out like the rest of the KD line.
There will be an open edition next year of these dolls. You will be able to get one. It's only this initial release that is so limited. After the open edition, I don't know what follows but I'm sure it will be terrific. Don't give up hope!
