Hey everyone!

As you may know by now I'm *probably* Sili Doll's #1 fan. In the last 10 months I went from customer, to product reviewer, to vender affiliation (as I'll be doing the final assembly for Suriwaai). It's been a crazy journey, and I'm really proud to say that I'm now officially affiliated with a company whose products have become an important and meaningful part of my life.

For my newest doll, Suriwaai, I don't really want to do a long-form review as I have in the past with Suki, Sukiwaai, and Suri-T. I feel like I'd be reviewing product that I have been involved in since day one (chiming in on design decisions and now doing final preparations). Still though, I can't help myself. I love to discuss the dolls that excite me and that I get excited about.

So instead of doing a lengthy and unbiased review (which now seems impossible). I want to use this thread to share my unofficial photos and my personal observations about what's new and different about Suriwaai. There's just so much to discuss!

Anyway, watch this thread for hot new photos of my gorgeous Suriwaai, and my occasional rantings about why I adore her so, so much.

We can start with a few images from this afternoon's photoshoot!

Congrats again on your opportunities and success. In addition to being a solid doll handler, you are also a very good writer, so I’m looking forward to your thoughts on this newest addition to the Silidoll lineup. :thumbs_up:

What's in a face? As a recent and most fascinating discussion here on TDF points out, our dolls' faces are the anchor points of our emotions towards these beautiful works of art. Our connections to these faces are central to the relationships we build with our dolls, which more often than not, transcend typical human and object understandings. Getting the face right is absolutely critical.

So it too early to give a behind-the-scenes view of the-making(up)-of Suriwaai? I don't think so! I'm eager to share a little part of my process in developing Suirwaai's signature look. After all, her face is what makes her unique!

I have many great things to say about this gorgeous doll and her exquisite face, but first I want to recognize our cosmetic supplier, April Annabelle Atleur (aka TripleA) from missatluer.com, maker of the BodyColor cosmetic line. BodyColor is a unique semi-permanent makeup system specifically designed by the genius chemists and dollsmiths of Miss Atleur Inc. BodyColor does not fade with washing, withstands mineral oil applications, can made to appear glossy or matte, and yet is easily removed at will through a little intentional vigorous rubbing and peeling. The colors are semi-transparent and can be layered beautifully. When applied with a brush, a level of precision nearly unobtainable with powder makeups can be achieved. This technology represents a breakthrough in doll cosmetics and delivers an unparalleled product that should appeal to any TPE doll owner.

When I knew I was going to be involved in the final production of Suriwaai, I knew I wanted to use the best available and latest materials and components. I sought out TripleA and the Miss Atleur team so that I could test their products and evaluate the value they could add to Suriwaai. When I found the makeup to vibrant, tough and long-lasting, and capable of achieving a new level of realism, I was hooked. I'm now currently stress testing the early application of BodyColor by carefully observing its resilience to every day doll activities. I have to say, so far I am extremely impressed.

In addition, I must also personally thank TripleA for providing the guidance and resources to use her products to their best effect. The bottom line is this: I'd recommend the BodyColor cosmetic line to any doll owner who is serious about the look of their doll. I'll also be watching closely for new developments from this master doll smith. Exciting things are on the horizon for them!

I'm also excited continuing to experiment and finding new ways to use these cosmetics. I should have a final Suriwaai prototype next week for you to check out, and exploring the versatilely of the BodyColor line.

With Miss Atleur's help, I plan on doing my best to make each Suriwaai sold its own unique creation, using the absolute best the TDF community has to offer. If you particularly like a certain style and are considering ordering a Sili Doll, lets have a chat over PM and I'll see what I can do about customizations to suite your particular tastes!

So here is the behind the scenes look I promised - a few photos from the evolution of Suriwaai's signature look. Please note that many of these photos are edited to create a certain atmosphere. If you'd like to see the unedited versions, let me know. These particular photos were taken for my own personal reference and enjoyment, but I'm happy to share them with you!

Hey all - I've been super busy and haven't had the time to update this thread as much as I'd like. I still don't. I just wanted to check in and say:

I. Love. This. Doll.

I took a couple of cell phone pics of Sukiwaai's head on Suriwaai's body today. Nothing fancy, just some photos for my own personal use, but I thought maybe some of you would like to see what that combo looks like!

Miracle TPE?
Of all the new advances found in Suriwaai, one of the most outstanding is the new Korean TPE formula. The new formula is a game changer! it improves durability, requires way less powder and maintenance while actually being softer than their already legendarily soft material!

The durability alone would be a major improvement. In my experience, I’ve found the new TPE formula to be incrediblely resistant to tearing and abrasion. This probably matters most around the orafices, the anal cavity especially, which is a known vulnerable spot in all TPE dolls. The extra durability means I think less about the consequences of posing and play and more about the fun.

Maintenance is also a breeze with Suriwaai. When I first received her, I went through my normal ritual - wash, rinse, and powder. But when it came time to powder her, I noticed that her skin didn’t feel tacky like a normal TPE formula. Instead it still had its skin-like quality once it was dry. I actually didn’t powder her until her second cleaning, which was amazing. It’s nice to not have to nearly as much maintenance as before. Also, I’ll note here that she arrived with almost no smell, and after a Nivea skin cream treatment, she smells very much like a real woman.

Finally, and most importantly is the softness. Softness is everything in a TPE doll. Everyone wants nice squeezable breasts, soft skin, that comfortable feeling when you touch her and the extremely sensual feeling from erotic play that only a soft doll can provide. When Suriwaai arrives, she was actually pretty firm, to the point where even play was a bit rough. Within a week, she became so indulgently soft, far softer than the already amazing Sukiwaai and on par with my Japan light white Suki, which was Sili Doll’s softest offering to date. I’m not sure why she went from a bit firm to amazingly supple and soft, but she did. I cannot express in words how lifelike she seems when held. It’s an amazing experience that should not be missed!

All in all, Suriwaai’s new TPE formula is something that needs to be experienced to be believed! She’s such a fantastic doll, the product of an ethic of continual improvement and innovation that makes Sili Doll a hidden gem among TPE manufacturers.

Thanks for the info adventurer. Does that mean this is now a 3rd color and texture of TPE available from Sili?

That's a solid question Blank22... I don't know if it's another option or if it replaces the natural tan skin tone. The new TPE used in Suriwaai is identical in color to Sukiwaai's default natural tan, as you may be able to see from the photos above with the Sukiwaai head on Suriwaai's body. Either way, I'd be sure to request the new blend if at all possible. It's truly an amazing material!

Lately, I've been focused on pushing the fantastic BodyColor cosmetics and the beautiful Suriwaai and Sukiwaai heads to their limits. While I've come up with a number of looks, adding skin detail is my new favorite thing to do. I found a long time ago that our synthetic beauties come to life when they aren't quite perfect - that is to say, they begin to take on human qualities when flaws are evident. For me, this began with experimenting with slightly uneven skin tones by layering traditional powder makeup and never completely removing makeup that was previously applied giving a more realistic look. This technique enabled Sukiwaai to win a very competitive portrait challenge here on TDF, of which I'm still extremely proud obviously :)

Today, empowered by the amazing BodyColor line of semi-permanent cosmetics, I can take this process to new heights! Previously, a freckle or a mole could be added with permanent marker, but it would eventually fade, and if you made a mistake, you'd more or less have to live with it. BodyColor allows the addition of such detail in a precise and painterly way. Applied with an artist brush, or in some cases, I prefer makeup brushes, BodyColor lets me experiment on a whole new level.

Not only does BodyColor provide quality pigmentation that lasts, it can also be used to add dimensionality. By layering it in specific ways, I can actually create a texture that looks fantastic. Eyebrows aren't just colored correctly, they have real-life depth. Tiny ridges can be added to lips to create a more life-like appearance. Want a matte appearance? Add powder. Want a glossy sheen to those lips? Apply a tiny amount of mineral oil and they really pop.

These photos show the possibilities for full customization that the BodyColor line offers. This one-of-a-kind Suriwaai has skin detail on a TPE doll that, in my view (and not to toot my own horn too much here), rivals some of the high-end Silicon dolls that cost thousands more.

This level of detail adds to the connection one feels with a synthetic companion and increases immersion during play - both essential to the processes of imagination that bring our girls to life.

As much as I hate to part with her, this Suriwaai is currently for sale as part of our Black Friday promotion (for $1,499!!). Unlike most other manufacturers, she's the exact doll head you'll receive, painstakingly customized by me, and is totally unique. With care, this look will last a long time, and will only need to be refreshed with powder makeup on those cute little cheeks after some time. The rest of the color is BodyColor. I'm really sad about parting with her, but I know she'll make one of you, my fellow freckle lovers, really happy for a long time to come.

Finally, Miss Atleur has offered to include a full set of BodyColor cosmetics (20 colors in 1 dram vials, worth 60 bucks!) along with her, so you can customize her body (shipped new from the factory) as you like. It's an incredibly generous offer to you from our favorite partner!
