Gorgeous doll!
The cute ones are so much prettier in my opinion.

Nice choice of stockings as well.

Thanks, I get those stockings from an eBay seller in China, they are great, being white, they are safe with tpe but they are also a high denier so last for ages and look good while giving great protection for those lovely legs!

Hi Dr Dollinger, thanks for your kind comments. Well I can see that WM have made some improvements this year, Athena's new 158D body arrived in perfect condition and didn't feel at all tacky and only had a very faint odour. I still gave her a good clean and a light powdering and 3 weeks on her tpe feels smooth, not tacky and barely has any odour. As for the softness, it feels the same as the WM145 that I got in the summer, so it's softer than my YL148 (18 months old) but not too soft, to me this particular blend feels just right as although it's soft it's not getting loads of compression marks from clothing etc. As for the fingers, well the finger wires on the 158 and the 145 from this year are thicker, probably twice as thick as my YL148, so they feel more robust but are also harder to bend into a pose but I would rather have them like that. I don't think these wires are pushed into the narrow coils that are then cemented into the palm plate like my YL148 so they don't flop about but I can see that they could snap where they go into the palm plate if you caught one of the fingers when going through a door etc. So far they are all intact and my 145 is about 5 months old now, then again I've learned to be careful with the fingers, even my older YL148 has all her fingers intact but they can appear a bit floppy due to the spring fixing. The wrists feel solid on the 158 and the rotation is now done by carefully twisting the forearm. What I am curious about is the neck assembly as it's clearly different from the traditional goose neck. When I first attached Athena's head and moved it I couldn't hear anything so I assumed that the neck is now hinged, since then I can hear something but its much quieter than say my YL148 or my OR156 so it's either a new improved goose neck or a hinge assembly, the 145 is the same. So all in all some welcome improvements, as Athena will be used, primarily for photography I'm hopeful that she will last quite a while, it will be interesting to see. You read about the problems that occur with tpe but with this newer blend and the right care I can see it lasting a lot longer, time will tell of course, in the meantime I will try and get some more pics done of Athena, I love to use her as a model now, especially with her ability to stand, just need some good light alas it's been quite dark here in Suffolk for the past week!

Thanks for that great info and the really good news about the skeleton improvement. Appreciate that! Great to hear especially of the better wrist /finger design. Makes a big difference. Thicker wires are so much better. And stopping with the terrible palm plate, cementing the coils for the wires.
On my YL148 they are all still intact as well, but I have be very careful with these hands and fingers. Have learned to deal with it.
But on my 158 it happened without much effort.

On a new hinge neck, you can bend the head only with more pressure and in shorter ways. Feels noticeable different. Especially left/right movement.
Last generation gooseneck is even much better and nearly noiseless. Like my WM160

That comparison on the softness is so valuable, because there aren't so much people with such experience like you have. Great :)

Honestly, your Athena makeup is so beautiful.
One of the cutest #56 faces around. In my opinion.
Have a nice Christmas with your family

Looks like some hot Japanese babe who took a selfie. In other words, she looks absolutely alive. What head is this? As it is probably the hottest Asian head I have seen for any doll.

Thanks Dr Dollinger and a happy Christmas to you too! Hi blindwebster, Athena has the popular WM56 head, as you say, one of the hottest Asian looking faces you can get. She's high on the cuteness factor but if you invest in some of the movable eye lids that Mannequin fan sells you can get a more sultry look, just check out DollDaddy27's Kianna and you will see what I mean, she's still a 56 but has a smouldering sexy look that will break your heart!

Thank you Kind sir! That was an awesome endorsement of Kianna! I just want to say how happy and excited I am for Athenas new body. I really think you made the perfect choice. Those first photos had me reaching for water as I was a little choked up! Athena is smokin hot and I love the entire set of photos on this thread. Can we say that Kianna and Athena are cousins?

Hi DD27, thanks for your kind words, Athena would be more than happy to discover she was related to the gorgeous Kianna! I really am looking forward to the better weather to take her out for some more adventurous photo shoots, the extra height of the WM158 body is quite noticeable as the top of her head comes up to my chin so she's actually taller than a couple of my ex girl friends. The pics I just posted with Athena looking in the mirror were fun to do but the light is just so poor right now in the UK, still the days will start getting longer again now. Well a happy Christmas to you and Kianna, hope santa has got her something nice for her stocking!

Thanks avante, I thought having the shadows across the face made her appear more realistic in a way, think I will experiment more with that sort of thing.

Not wanting to be outdone by her sister Monique, Athena asked me to post a few pics of her as well to say goodbye to 2017...

Hi Dr Dollinger, well I'm managing surprisingly well actually, probably because I get such a kick out of it all and if I get any decent photos that's a bonus. The girls all seem to take on their own mini personalities ie. Cute, moody, sexy, etc which you know is all in your head but it's fun anyway! I'm already planning a new recruit for next year sometime and I'm really keen on the new YL165 but there are several new faces that are all lovely! This time I really need to get a much darker gal as the harem needs to be more diverse. I'm also tempted to get another OR156 as I've seen a G cup one in cocoa colour tpe that is to die for so we will see, just hope my back can cope, certainly the YL165 would be as high as I would go weight wise! Anyway thanks for the encouragement and Happy New Year!
