Why did you type that she’s a work in progress because I can’t see anything you need to add to her. I’m totally loving her purple hair. I’m liking her long jacket. She looks like she’s ready to go about town.

I think if she did play a couple of sets at the ammo Arms. It would definitely be a sell out.

Thanks, Alex! That's very kind of you to say! Especially since I know the female seamless figs aren't your favorite type of figure. I'm glad you found this one to be fun.

When I was a much younger man I was given this piece of advice, and I must say it has served me well so I'll pass it on here.
"Avoid at all costs any woman who has pink hair!"

Dave, is it just my own sense of proportion or do the legs on those things seem extremely and unrealistically elongated to anyone else?

That was probably wise advice. It just... makes sense, somehow.

Many of the seamless figures, despite claims about their "semi-realistic" proportions, are quite stylized... beyond the obvious chest measurements... with enhanced beyond fashion model length legs being a common attribute. That said, the "punk rock" figure previously posted uses a body marketed as being "anime style," with an impossibly slim physique, exaggerated bosom-to-waist ratio, and extended limb lengths. That body style receives quite a bit of criticism on some of the other figure forums I occasionally visit, with the general consensus being unfavorable.

I like the "anime" version because they are stylized... and because Barbie and other "playline" doll clothes will often fit.

And probably because I wanted to grow up to look like an anime character: like, maybe, this guy, who even had a cool name: Wildstar!

(I should be careful what I wish for; I kinda did grow up... or out... to look like an anime character: this guy Rolling Eyes )

Interesting to hear it's not favoured on other figure forums. 
Have to admit that after studying Life Drawing for four years at Uni, those figures do look odd to my eyes.
Yes, I realise that they are stylised but the head sculpts on top of the bodies are more realistic and this sets up a disharmony.

Incidentally with all this talk of "re-bodying" of those seamless things going on here, can anybody enlighten me as to what you do with the cast offs?
Do you keep sinister boxes full of headless squirmy female bits hidden in the crawl-space?  Shocked

Now that you mention it, there may be something to the "disharmony" created by the realistic-ish headsculpts paired with the less realistic bodies. That would explain why the most positive (or least negative) responses to any of my seamless figures, both on this forum and on others, has been to the figures using more "toy-like" heads.

If you studied "Life Drawing" for four years, you must be quite accomplished! Life Drawing, however, is not the same as "advertising illustration," is it? I was just looking at some old Sindy doll catalogues from the mid-1960s that a friend posted to Flickr, and admiring the stylized artwork of the slim, fashionable figures who do not even remotely resemble the chunky, clunky design of the old Sindy dolls... or of real people. Although admittedly, 1960s people were, in general, much more slim than 2020s people.

(In keeping with my earlier comment about wanting to grow up to look like an anime character, I would certainly have not minded had I more closely resembled "that freewheeling lad" from the Sindy doll collection! Paul seems much hipper and more stylish than his American counterpart, Ken.)

As for bins full of bodies – some members on other forums have mentioned having "spare parts bins" and "spare bodies bins." I do not have such a bin myself. I'm pretty much one head / one body.

You are so right on that Dave! Fashion drawing is a whole new ballgame.
Out goes the old "eight heads to a body canon" and in comes the extreme distortion in both height and slimness in order to look more elegant.
Even fashion photography is subjected to "stretch" heightways and that's before all the photoshop makeovers.
Obviously the seamless figures are having a foot in each camp so to speak, selling realistic headsculpts, but making "fashion" bodies for them.

Dave, I think you may well be the only other person who has a stash of totally random junk that might be used as props someday to rival my own ever burgeoning hoard.  cheers
Enjoying seeing you working through it!

I pulled out a few bits and pieces a couple of days ago that have not seen the light of day since before I moved, six winters ago. Where does the time go?
