Dollshe Bermann from Dollectable on eBay and other Bermann musings

June 7th, 2007 (11:45 am)

See this beauty here:

http://cgi.ebay.com/Dollsche-Bermann-Unique-bjd-set-by-Tensiya-SA-No11_W0QQitemZ200115239208QQihZ010QQcategoryZ84635QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem

He is really quite gorgeous. Anu did a wonderful job with his faceup and clothing. And I am such a sucker for kimono and other Asian outfits for abjds!


However...

You know, I am SO glad I got over my rabid Bermann lust when two things happened -

1. I saw the unattractive eyebrows on the Bermann Fogg when they started to arrive

2. The Haneol Moon came home


Now, I know the Haneol Moon does not compare in the least to a Bermann, for deity's sake! Bermanns have such a wonderful face - so sad, so knowing, so other-worldly in some cases. I adore that face - it could so easily be Eiri! I love the small frown on the mouth - it is not that exagerated Husky lower lip. I love the shape of the eyes, like an IM Hound without that forehead crease. What I want is a Dollshe with Bermann lips, and everything else an IM Hound has except the bumpy Klingon forehead. I would even settle for an IM Hound with the forehead sanded down!

Hmm... I am surprised Dollshe has no come out with any new sculpts this year. Anyone know what's going on?

The downside is the Bermann has a less realistic face, as beautiful as it is! I really needed something that would meld well with the odd choice I made for my Shuichi - the IH Soo Ri. I know some folks still think the choice weird, but I love Shu's elbow joints and beautiful handsome face. I love how he can bend and pose his elbows nicely like my Hound. That was one of the major selling points for getting him. And I don't mind his floppiness - the character is a flexible noodle so it works for him.

If I had gone with the CP Shiwoo for Shuichi, then the Bermann would have worked as Eiri. Even the Elfdoll Wu or Red might have stood up against a Bermman. And I love the Elfdoll male resin colour - SO accurately Shuichi! But the lack of that all-important elbow joint caused all of the candidates to drop off the list, leaving the Soo Ri standing alone, and so bloody tall! *laughs*

I still wish Shuichi was normal skin, and I wish Eiri had been offered in white skin. That's their actual character traits but I will live with their switched skintones because they are just so beautifully handsome to me. They are pretty much attached to each other now. I don't see them much, either. They are on the faux bed in the living room, snuggling and hugging. I think it is time to bring them both into the bedroom with the rest of the crew.

So the Bermann has now become more of a guilty lust doll for me, with the knowledge I will never get one. I am more than okay with that, too. In fact, after I gather the money together to get the DoC Hoo to be my a/u Eiri to my a/u Shuichi (mnf elf Shiwoo), I am pretty much done with my doll family, except for maybe a tiny or msd here or there on a whim.

However, if a non-tanned open-eyed Bermann dropped on top of me, I would be happy. Resin from heaven, whee! I would even be willing to purchase one for the original selling price, but there is NO WAY I am going to spend $4000 for one, that's for sure! That price is for three of them! *laughs*

And thus ends the ramble...

Somedays I think I'm the only person on the planet that doesn't like Bermann. Ah well. *grin*

Nasake - name

I think a lot of people dislike them and a lot of people like them.

I do think those who like them only for their resale value are losing the point for having resin lovelies.

*nods* I really don't care for Bermann or Hound all that much. They're not ugly, but they don't fit my personal aesthetic.

Whereas, I do like the newer Dollshe boys much better.

That said, I really kinda want an IM Hound head at some point to make into a particular character. XD

*laughs* Yeah, Van was pretty darned ugly! He would be needing a lot of modification to that nose of his for me to consider him.

Your slut? Which one will be the slut? I thought Miki was a slut! *laughs*

Oddly enough, I kinda want a Van. I think his face has a lot of character, and I'd like to see him with a strong, masculine faceup.

I've told Tree that when she gets all her traveling done, that I might be willing to split a Van with her. Let her have the body for one of her Elysium boys, and I'll stick the head on a DZ body. (I just like them better. XD)

He's gorgeous, but I'm another person voting for the No column. $5100 when I looked and I don't particularly like Bermann in the first place. Now his outfit, that's gorgeous and I'd love to have it. But not at the price I know it'd take to get it. I'll make my own, thank you! O_O!

Good luck on having a Bermann land in your lap! ^_~

He has such a serene face, I must admit. It's now up to $5300+.

I have gotten some gorgeous kimono and hakama from various eBay sellers, some even from Japan. I find they are usually willing to do custom work for me, but then again, I throw a lot of money at them!
