    Very cool. I’ve seen such headdresses displayed before during my trips to China.

    It’s hard to digest all this beauty at once! I keep going back to appreciate the costume, but it’s the face that blows me away each time…

    <3 ! Although my favourite doll is another one, I must admit that there is something special in Ruby. At first sight all these new Rubies seem the same but suddenly you can see that each one of them has particular, own face and soul… Amazing, Marina, amazing…

    I have to agree with a few, she is not my favourite doll. The quality of your work of art is outstanding.

    I wish upon a star that there is a project in the future for us fans who could one day own a ED.

    So beautiful. Her headpiece has the shape of a moth or a butterfly, divine. I love the headband. And her face is so strikingly beautiful and soulful, I love the closeup photo! Wonderful job~

    they’re really awesome! i love the tin box and i love how you come up with new jewelry designs for each one. Do you think you would make the shoes available at some point?

    I love her. For me this would be the one, there is something about this particular face that really appeals to me.
    She is like a precious treasure.

    I have a idea that you might like. what about making a series of dolls inspired by Chinese concubines of the emperor and their power struggles,and set up scenes of intrigue, betrayal and murder in each photographic scene. It would make a interesting idea.

    As for the dolls’s wardrobe I suggest having a wardrobe of at least six interchangeable pieces for each doll , based on each one’s personality.

    In order to get the most out of my idea I suggest a maximum of five dolls so the characters can be fleshed out easily,
