Doll Construction and Appearance
Isabella is really a beautiful doll. Don sculpted an incredible body, and I have to say that the faces are actually quite attractive. I say "actually quite attractive" because I, like many others I have seen on these boards, did not think their faces look all that beautiful from the pictures on line. Even looking at my own pictures, I cannot say that Isabella's face is as beautiful as I would like, but I can assure you that, in person, she is much more attractive. Downright hot, in fact! I don't know if it has to do with seeing her in 3-d or what. I cannot explain it. But Ruby13 faces are quite beautiful in person!
The molding is generally quite excellent, though I have found some minor imperfections. For instance, there are a few small, dark artifacts in the silicone of her fingers. Very minor, and on the underside so not too noticeable. Additionally, I have seen in a few places what appear to be small bubbles that formed near the surface at a few seems. Again, these are very small, and I can't even remember where they are off the top of my head. I only noticed them when she first arrived and haven't noticed them since.
One other small, negative note: the eyelashes are generally well glued down, but a few of them will need to be re-glued as they are coming up on one edge or the other. I am not looking forward to that work!
The breasts are as advertised: soft and pliable. Really excellent to grab and play with, excellently shaped. The nipples will show through any cloth light enough in weight, if you like that sort of thing. I do They bounce and jiggle nicely when she moves, and they feel great pressed into your chest.
Isabella seems very sturdy. I am new to dolls, and I have done my best to lift and move her with care (though I can get a little carried away during playtime ), and she has survived so far without any damage at all. I am learning to be more careful, plan out my moves a little better
Each of the heads is delivered on its own little wooden stand, which is really nice. The heads fit on over a heavy, resin "head post" that is held on place on the ball of her neck joint using tension (the "head post" has two pieces that are held together by a heavy bolt). Tightening the bolt tightens the two head post pieces together and determines how easy it is to move her head about once you place it on the post. This system works really well, and it seems quite sturdy. It is easy to add or remove a head, and it is also easy to add and remove the head post.
Extras - Pose-able Arms and Sealed Makeup
Isabella has the pose-able arm feature, as well as the Sealed Makeup on each of her heads. At first, I was not that enamored of the pose-able arms. The shoulder joints are very stiff, and the elbow joints are much less so. I wanted to pose-able arms because I had read that they were good for photography, but, perhaps more importantly, they also enabled Rubys to support themselves for doggy style. It wasn't until earlier this week, however, that I figured out how to get that to work. And it is great! The pose-able arms do allow her to support herself for doggy either with straight arms or leaning down on her elbows. My one worry here, perhaps unsubstantiated, is that the joints will loosen with time, and then she will no longer be capable of supporting herself like that. You can also pose her arms so it feels a little bit like she is grabbing you. For instance, I really like Missionary, positioning her arms around me as if she is grabbing me.
The Sealed Makeup also seems to work quite well. Isabella is less than a month old, but it has held up so far to all the moving around I do for her, as well as kissing.
Getting Used to the doll
Ruby13s are supposed to be among the lighter of the silicone dolls, and she is lighter than the Sinthetics I have had the opportunity to lift. Unfortunately, light for a silicone doll is still awkward and heavy. I am no stranger to exercise or lifting. I often hit the gym and lift weights, and I can tell you, just as others on this forum have said before me, that lifting a silicone doll of around 65 lbs is not like lifting a 65 lb barbell. A 65 lb barbell is even "light" to me (I regularly perform barbell curls with 60 or 65 lbs), but 65 lbs in silicone doll... well, you just have to learn how to lift it right. I don't want to scare anyone off, it is just a new skill that really takes time to learn. My recommendation is to really go slow at first, plan out your moves, take your time. Part of the problem is that silicone is pretty tacky/sticky. You can alleviate this with corn starch on the skin, but she still won't just slide across the bed covers. I think some guys always lay their doll down on a sheet, blanket, or towel so that they can easily slide her around. I may have to try that!
Despite everything that I wrote above, I have developed my own system for moving Isabella, and I have learned to just take my time and be deliberate with everything I am doing. You just have to accept that everything will take just a bit longer than you think it will, and you have to be patient.
One thing I do to make life easier: remove her head and head post for cleaning, storage, and dressing/undressing! This way she is lighter, and I am less likely to bump her head into something or damage her face or makeup.
Dressing - Dressing is generally not to hard as long as you following the recommendations for buying stretchy bottoms and tops. Long sleeves and long pant legs are a pain in the ass, as others have noted. There are tricks that can help that, I have read. For instance, pantyhose over the legs helps slide jeans and the like on. I haven't tried that, but the clothes just like to stick to the silicone, so I will bet that helps (along with the fresh powdering of the skin). Panties, stretchy shorts, sleeveless or short/capped sleeve dresses, and stretchy tops are all really easy though, and it can really add to the allure of your doll. I have even put a full body lingerie thing on her, and that went on much easier than the jeggings I put her in this morning!
Cleaning - For cleaning after playtime, I lift her upright over a paper towel to let her drain, and then place her over a stack of pillows (butt in the air, and neck post down). I will cover that stack of pillows with a couple of towels before I place Isabella there, and then I will pour water and alcohol into her holes. I then use my hands and fingers to clean the inside of her canals, and then I roll her over onto a low bucket to drain. I do this once or twice, depending. Once this is all done, I dry down what I can, and then lay her on her back on the bed with her legs spread and a fan blowing to help her dry. When she is dry, I will re-apply powder occasionally... As others have observed, silicone is a dust magnet. I have read that static guard spray can help with this. I have a can, but I have not yet used it. The time is drawing near, however
Playtime - vaginal, anal, and oral
Ok, now the fun part... listen: Ruby13s are great dolls for play. As I said above, Isabella is actually really hot in person. She is fun to kiss (especially heads 7 and 8, though 6 is nice too), and having the pose-able arms goes a long way during make-out sessions. Its really fun to kiss her and have her arms wrapped around me.
Missionary is great and easy. If you have the pose-able arms, you can have her wrap her arms around you, and I love that. You can also get her to wrap her legs around your own, and I recommend that as well. Because the legs have bones, but not stiff joints, you can move them easily during play, and that is very convenient. I like to adjust her head to the side and up in this position to make kissing her easier, and it looks like she is looking up at you, making eye contact.
Spooning is a very easy option. The legs close together and tighten the vaginal opening nicely, but you can also lift one of the legs for easy entry to start.
Doggy is fun, especially once you have her up on her arms. When she is supporting herself, you can easily rock her back on forth in this position.
