Hi, y’all. I apologize for going ghost for so long. The end of the semester at work is always busy, especially with graduation. But, now that most of the students have gone home, work has been slow, and I’ve been able to have more down time. Yesterday, I gave Boxer’s new model its first monthly cleaning, and it went pretty well. It took me about three hours to clean her, but I wanted to make sure she was thoroughly hydrated with baby oil, as I’m not sure when I’ll be able to clean her again.
Some people have asked me to give an update on Boxer’s current model and how she’s holding up, so her are my main findings and review:
The skeleton in Boxer is definitely an upgrade. Some of her joints do pop here and there when moving her, but I ran this by FP and he said that this was normal, especially for a doll that isn’t moved a whole lot. Over time, I assume that her joints will loosen up a bit, and I’ll no longer encounter a popping noise when moving stiffer joints. She does have a creaky goose neck joint tho, and it’s pretty obvious whenever I’m moving her neck or placing pressure on it. Other than that tho, her skeleton is fine, and I can rest easy knowing that I more than likely won’t have to experience another hip snapping. That was traumatic and I honestly don’t wanna have to go through that again. 😅
The TPE is an absolute god send. Not only is she soft, squishy, and free of odor, the TPE is definitely more resistant and can handle a bit of a beating. With Boxer’s MLD model, I was always finding small tears or cuts on her, with some even being in odd places that I knew I didn’t come in contact with when touching her. So, I’m glad that this TPE is a little more sturdy, and I don’t have to waste precious repairing supplies on little tears that mysteriously show up.
Her intimate parts are well done, and I can tell that a lot of thought and care went into making them. Her vagina actually had a hymen, which really surprised me as I was giving her a “test ride.” But, after using a bit of baby oil, I was able to break through the hymen. It was definitely a nice touch tho. Her nipples are probably my favorite part. They’re this nice, natural pink color, and they look very close to the real thing. Her boobs are hallowed, and tho they’re a little smaller than I expected, they’re still really cute. ☺️
Her weight is perfectly manageable to me, and I can lift her up with enough strength to transfer her from one surface to another. The only downside is that, due to less TPE on her, she is more prone to creasing, but I’m always mindful of this when positioning her in different poses or in a neutral, laying position. But, it’s a small price to pay to be able to move her around with ease.
Overall, a worthy upgrade from her MLD model, and I can’t thank FP enough for helping me find Boxer a model that is both affordable and good quality. The days of cheap dolls for me is for sure over, but I have to give props to MLD and its community for introducing me to the doll world, and preparing me for a bigger, better doll. <3
Edit: Here she was after her cleaning. She looked so cute and cuddly. ♥️
