The Kickstarter was a success! Our friends at 3DK have given us at rayedelsol.com a chance to review the new Quin head FIRST and bring you our thoughts. Thank you so much, 3DK for this opportunity!
Quin’s new head prints in two different pieces. This allows you to insert 12mm doll eyes into her head, similar to a BJD.
The seam isn’t very noticeable, and I think with a proper wig, you wouldn’t even see it.
That weird film you see on her eyes is left-over glue. The head that 3DK sent me also comes with printable eyes. We had printed these eyes and glued them in, but I just wasn’t happy with the result. The eyes print in two pieces, a part for the whites and another for the irises. These two don’t perfectly fit (the irises are too small) and caused for some slipping. I just didn’t like the look they gave her.
Edit: I’m going to add some photos of the 3D printed eyes. These have glue on them, so please don’t hold that against them. Also, I had lost my natural lighting when I snapped these photos, so her coloring may look a little off.
These are 12mm doll/cat eyes that I purchased for 99 cents at Hobby Lobby. There is a tiny gap on the side of her eyes, but the eyes stay firmly in place with no glue needed. I didn’t even have to take the screw off the back of the eyes! 3DK left a place in her head for them to sit.
I think this new eye mechanism (and her new wrists, thanks to Mr. del Sol) give her SO much more character!
What do you think? Are you excited for your Quin upgrades? Natalie (from 3DKitBash) sent out an update today saying
“We wanted to let you all know that we’re running behind. We really appreciate your support, and we’re working hard to get caught up. We’re sorry for the delay. We just need a bit more time!
Over the next few days we’ll post pictures online so you can see our progress!
We promise to deliver fun, cool 3D mods and accessories for Quin. We’ll keep you posted. ~Natalie”
I can assure you, 3DK is very busy getting Quin’s modifications perfect! I can’t wait to see what all comes from this Kickstarter project!
