|Her current look.|
Laura is a limhwa half-elf in tan resin. Limhwa is a one-person operation (the arist's name is Jung Ji Youn), and the dolls sculpted with fairly soft facial features. The joint engineering is fairly simple (and not my favourite to pose, if I'm honest), but they more than make up for that with their charm, and with the impressively detailed sculpting of the hands and feet.
The resin has a solid weight to it, with a nice natural grain (I'm not a fan of sanding, so I prefer that slightly rough feel). This batch of tan was rather orange, but I've seen others that turned out in more of a brown - but that's not an unusual thing to see from a tiny producer like this.
I bought her back in 2011, but it took me a good two years to find a final look for her - and as soon as I settled on one, I accidentally ripped out her eyelashes, so now she's back in the work-in-progress pile! Still, that's an easy one to finish (as long as I don't decide she needs a new faceup in the meantime!).

I had too-small eyes in both dolls at this point.
