Despite being third-hand, he's actually in very good shape still - the hook on one ankle broke, but that's a common issue with the EIDs, and so it's not really cause for concern. Everything else is near-perfect. I've heard of dolls from this same release who went purple, but his colour is actually near-identical to my 2012 JID Boris, so I think it's safe to say that it's aging quite well.
He's become the doll that I've put through the most reinventions as well, so let's take a look at them:
|Day 1: Painted as the last owner's character ("censored" with a cigar, because ha!)|
Look #1: big blue eyes and orange-red hair (the default wig from my SD13 Heath - despite the huge size difference, they actually wear the same wig size).
At this point I had no EID-size clothing, so I had to squeeze him into anything that fit (the pants I'd made based on online measurements ended up being a good size too small).

Several more failed attempts at other-company clothing and weak attempts at sewing (finally foiled when the tension on my ancient sewing machine finally died), but this guy was finally saved when I ordered another EID (an Arvid) and bought a selection of clothes along with him. Around the same time I snagged some smaller brown eyes as well, and thus was his look finalized (although the clothes still rotate, of course).
