aesthetic of the doll pleases me. I find that vinyl is easier to use as a sewing model, but resin is often more posable for photos. I haven't had a close look at the Outlander dolls that were at Toy Fair, but wasn't impressed with his other offerings there. I'm in a wait-and-see mode while I pick up a few more of the older ones that appeal to me. I'm wishing I hadn't started so late with the resin Evangelines. I guess she had to grow on me. But the expense of resin is also a factor and it's hard to buy a resin knowing you could have gotten 2 vinyls for that! I need to be content playing with what I have!
