Title: Faina (Anatomical Doll body 4, Aurora head)
Post by: Everhard on January 05, 2016, 04:18:04 PM
The original topic with this title is no good now because my doll web site is off line. However, I have some photos in an album here:

The first three images are from an outing filmed by a television crew from Japan.

Faina was made in 2013.

Faina is named after the central character of the 2012 novel The Snow Child by Eown Ivey. It is about a snow girl in 1920s Alaska that seems to come to life. It follows her life from about ten years old or thenabouts) to about 20. It is a sad tale, based on a traditional Russian fairy tale.

(Coincidentally, Faina was also the name of Muzza's second wife.)

The eyes closed is a separate head. It takes only a minute to change heads.

...Sleeping beauty!
She has a pale skin tone, but not as pale as Emily Browning in the 2011 Australian movie. It is the ultimate doll movie, in a way. Except they place limits on what you are allowed to do.

(https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/thumb/0/0d/Sleeping_Beauty_film.jpg/220px-Sleeping_Beauty_film.jpg) Sleeping Beauty (2011 film) (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sleeping_Beauty_%282011_film%29) on Wikipedia

Faina is also somewhat larger than Emily Browning. However, if you think dolls are heavy, see the film for the sheer effort expended when even burly guys try to maneuver an unconscious (and naked) real girl. She often ends up sliding off the bed and onto the floor. (One morning she is woken up by her employer and what she sees sends her into a fit of terrified screaming...)

Everhard,

     I do not know how you managed it, but your picture of "Siouxsie Sioux Doll" makes her look like she just heard some very bad news. I imagine that you either took away her credit cards or her automatic weapons. Girls do love their toys!

You must have contacts in the film industry costume department, where devil did you get the Russian uniforms ?

Particularly like the white one ,very arresting  :thumb:

And  poor little Faina looks like she is missing mother Russia, she always looks so sad .

Mind, her bottom always brings a smile to my lips.

Particularly like the white one ,very arresting  :thumb:

Anoushka's white uniform is a fancy dress outfit, although, unlike most such, it looks fairly convincing. Search the clothing section of UK ebay for 'women's navy uniform.' The first one I see is one like that. (However, that is four times what I paid for Anoushka's.) I found the metal Soviet badges also on eBay.

Faina's MVD uniform uses an ordinary ladies' coat. I think I searched for 'military' in the coats and jackets subdivision of clothing; women's. The hat and badges are also findable on eBay, although I made the horizontal yellow stripe with red edges from cloth I bought locally. The plastic AK47 is also via ebay. I painted it to look even more real.

And  poor little Faina looks like she is missing mother Russia, she always looks so sad .
She does look serious. She seems to me like an older sister who always comes home from evenings out having failed to get off with whoever she thinks is that week's Prince Charming. (The alien stasis field of a few years ago that stopped a large proportion of the population from aging saw to it that I now look older than her...)

I could not get the height of the strap she is hanging from exactly right, so she is a half inch off the floor.

Everhard,

     In the second picture, it looks like you are having a heart-to-heart conversation with Faina. She looks to be taking the news badly. :-[  Do try to cheer her up a bit! You have an amazing talent for bringing life to these dolls!

The dolls seem to be thinking and doing when they are posed reasonably. Anatomical dolls are particularly good at it, though. In that pose, she just seemed to be thinking about what to say, so I just took up a corresponding position.

She has a serious countenance, certainly, but her expression seems to me to change with circumstance. Examples:

(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/normal_FainaAnatomicalDoll2014-01-26_39webBW.jpg) Siouxsie Sioux Doll (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/displayimage.php?pid=42177&fullsize=1)
As Siouxsie Sioux, she strikes me as being annoyed at the intrusion of the camera.

As a Russian internal security police woman she seems to me to be interested in what you are doing and why...

The posh restaurant was a big relief from the freezing conditions outside.

     In the "Close up (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/FainaAnatomicalDoll2017-05-28_41web.jpg)" shot, Faina is giving you (the cameraman) or me (the viewer) a look that says she just caught one of us doing something questionable!

Post by: Everhard on December 24, 2017, 08:44:29 AM
Each head seems to me different from others of the same type, even beyond the differences arising from particular make-up. For example, here is Faina and the original Aurora head (Anatomical Doll factory photos):
(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/normal_MyFainaFactoryPic5.jpg) Click for larger image (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/displayimage.php?pid=51805&fullsize=1) (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/normal_Aurora2.jpg) Click for larger image (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/displayimage.php?pid=51822&fullsize=1)

As several folks here have pointed out, Faina has a totally different expression from Aurora. Although I expected a head identical to Aurora to arrive, now I would not trade Faina for another head, not even an Aurora. (I sure would like an original Aurora too...)

There was also a smiling Aurora, which I do not like as much, and even a closed eyes Aurora...

Will there ever be another great doll creator equivalent to Anatomical Doll? Maybe, but I fear it will be a long time before it happens. The mass market for dolls is for what others have termed the '20-year old prostitute', with pouty lips, humungous boobs, and a tiny waist.

     While we continue to hope that another gifted artist will take up the baton, we do realize that it will not be Oleg and may not be Irina. Each artist has their own unique style, and it is difficult to copy another's work faithfully. Best wishes for the future of Anatomical Doll!

Everhard,

     Faina seems quite pensive. Perhaps she is awaiting warmer days and trips to the beach, hang gliding, or just a lazy stroll through the park. She should get together with Varvara and Anoushka for "Girls' Night Out" to cheer her up!

     Faina does have a certain charm about her. Not only is she a lovely lady, she helps with the outside work! There is just something special about a woman in a soft sweater. I makes her that much more hug-able!

I agree. That pullover does seem to suit her, although it is too large really.

The main criteria for such a location are that it needs to be close (ten minutes by car in this case) and it needs to be reasonably scenic with car parking close by, which this has. It just happens that this location also has a blocky building with locked doors nearby. There certainly was a bad smell, which was explained when I read the plaque on the side of the building!

There is a bench on the other side of the low stone wall. A photo taken from that side would have boats moored in the quay and various other structures as a backdrop. Unfortunately the light was all wrong for that direction at that time of the morning.

I took thos this photo of June (http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/displayimage.php?album=1494&pos=15) at the same location in 2012, but the blockhouse seems to have changed since then. Certainly that bench is no longer there. (Maybe the one I mentioned on the street side of the wall is the same one relocated.)

Me and a hundred other folks on that sunny late Sunday afternoon at the quay, where there was some kind of festival going on.

Today (Tuesday) I repainted her face freckles. (Unlike her body freckles, which are as good as new, her original face freckles wore off or faded to nothing after a short time.) I also powdered her and changed her outfit ready for more photos tomorrow.

Likely correct. While steering between the marker buoys, observing the speed limits, and timing his wave to be in the camera's field of view, I doubt that he had time to register that the girl in the chair was not a live person.

Everhard,

     From the look of your car, it appears that you are rescuing a crash victim! The loving look that Faina is giving you seems to confirm that. The second picture portrays her as resting from the traumatic event! If this was not your intent, then please accept my apologies.

:-X Hmmm  :-X

Hummmm INCREDIBLY HOT mature woman !!!!
In my estimation she is among the finest dolls ever made. I spend more 'quality' time with her than any of my other dolls.

From the look of your car, it appears that you are rescuing a crash victim! The loving look that Faina is giving you seems to confirm that.
:D
That's not my car. However, I guess the reflections on its bodywork do make it look as though it is bent. I am fairly sure they are just reflections though. Having examined the original photo, I see a reflected lamp pole and the big dark object on the right is a reflected parking meter right beside the car.

Faina is not the heaviest of my dolls (not the lightest either) but she is large and, with all that clothing, I find it an effort to carry her any distance. When carrying a doll, you cannot see the ground immediately ahead: At a different location later the same day, I was carrying her back to the car and I tripped and fell over a wooden stump sticking out of the ground (one of several there to mark the edge of the parking area). Faina hit the ground and I went headlong over her in a somersault. She was unhurt (as was I). She just had some dirty marks that mostly brushed off by hand.

It was much too cold for me. Next time I visit my friend in Devon, I will do so in summer!

The curve of her belly is unique in the doll world, to the best of my knowledge.

One fault of this doll is that the finger wires have all broken where they join the hand piece, which makes it difficult to pose them realistically.
