Hi! This is Korra, my DS 163+. :D


This is meant to be an introduction and a 1 year review.
I've had a really hard time deciding what to say about this doll, because I got her for very personal reasons. I feel I owe it to DS and the other reviews that helped me to say a little something. It was the Alisa head with blue eyes that just spoke to me, one of the DS doll vendors had a little paragraph about her personality and profession. It was her face, her name and her back story (things that are more convincing than you know) that drove me to buy her. I wouldn't change a thing about her other than add an "S" to her name - I call her "Alissa". I may post more pictures of her one day...

However, this post is about Korra. In June 2015 DS (now EX) had a free extra head sale with the purchase of a 168+ (now 163+). I had seen the Kayla face on scam sites before I knew she was from DS, and was always intrigued. So I chose her with green eyes as the free head.


At the time no other body came close to the 163 in my mind. I liked the idea of an easily cleaned insert and loose joints. Next time I will go with stiff joints because now I know how much fun and life are brought to the doll when she can pose on her own. Plus moving a loose jointed doll can be tricky when her little arms flop in the way. Yet it is very convincing how she can run her nails across your back and chest. :razz:

Ordering:
John was very helpful and responded right away. It gives you a good feeling of trust. The pics he sent me of the faces blew me away. There is nothing like seeing "your doll is completed" in your inbox. 8)

It was nerve wracking waiting for DHL to deliver my doll. They showed up 10 minutes before they make their last deliveries. :tongue: No damage though.

The body:
The doll is very life like with nice red shading in subtle areas. The silicone they used in 2015 is very soft and smooth. I like how I don't have to apply powder very often. The skin stays smooth for a long time. If you grab her hard, the marks from you fingers stay for a second then disappear.
I kind of regret not getting the smaller boobed 163, I went with the bigger ones at the last minute because I thought I would get more use out of them. The boobs are very soft but don't jiggle like some TPE toys I've had.
The butt is very nice but I'd prefer more of a bubble next time. Something in between the 163 and the 167. If only they had made the butt as soft and squishy as some other areas like her feet and shoulders. It is a little hard.

^Not easy to balance a loose jointed doll. 8O

Don't make these mistakes like I did:
-I was lifting her to the center of my queen size bed when my foot inexplicably slipped out from under me and she fell. She landed right on her face and I saw her fingers and feet get smashed almost sideways! I regained balance and caught her on the first bounce and luckily there was no damage at all. Well built doll. I always put one knee on the bed when moving her now instead of bending over it.
-Be careful storing the head. I used to wrap her back up in the foam ninja mask they sent her in. Somehow the mask thingy slipped up and was pressing on her eyelashes. I couldn't see it through the wrapping but they were all crooked when I opened her. :x They went back to normal after a while. Lucky me.
-I used some lube on the outside of the insert to slip it in the cavity that got kind of sticky when pulling it out. I was over confident in the strength of the insert cavity and put my hands too far in. The top split open a little. Luckily it was easily fixed with RTV silicone adhesive.
-The area around the insert cavity opening is kind of flaking off. I think it's just the paint. I'm sure it's my fault and not DS's. I must have used some lube that wasn't water-based or maybe it was the condoms I used.??


The biggest negatives to me:
-The weak anal opening is too small and tears too easily. It was not a good feeling when it tore on me. It made me feel like a brute. :( I wonder how hard it would be to make your own insert. I was able to fix that tear too.
-I'd like a smaller looking insert like the 167 or built-in option that looks better when the legs are spread. Don't like how the insert cavity caves in when you press it. I thought insert was the way to go till I tried built-in, just prefer it now. The 167 insert seems to be as good as it gets. Would love to try.
-I didn't want to admit it, but I just don't like the way her feet look. They are too flat and have almost the opposite of an arch. When her ankles are bent it just doesn't look right. They look okay from the bottom but the sides don't look natural in open side heels. Maybe it's just my doll because other pics I've seen of the 163 look more natural. Unless I'm really missing something, my doll does not want to arch her foot.

Personality:
Korra is a bit aloof and likes to possess things. I got some new headphones and she liked them better than hers so she took them. :o At least she gave me her old ones (the left ear cuts out if I move). :x


In conclusion wouldn't pass on a DS/EX doll especially with the advancements they have made and continue to make. (I'd probably get a 167.) :) As long as they continue to fix the problems they've had with some of their other dolls. I hope they unveil another new doll soon that blows me away.
I really like my doll, Thanks! :D

Nicely written review! Thanks.

It's interesting that you had personal reasons for getting her. I think that condition is more common than has been indicated.

Congrats on your lovelies and and interesting read. Korra is beautiful and look forward to seeing Alissa.

I have read comments by others that the 163 is too skinny. I think she is lovely. Petite, yes but I wouldn't change her either.

From what I read above, did you get her (order her) June last year? I checked my 2014 and 2015(Oct) after seeing your foot pic and their feet both bend at the centre of the ankle rather than at the top of the ankle as yours appear to. On mine the foot plate hinge has about an inch of silicone under it (heel).

I totally agree with you about DS. For me they are #1 and would definitely go again (if my house wasn't full already)

Look forward to more pics.

She looks absolutely stunning! Love the dress she is wearing.

The feet do look a bit off, but one's glance is probably fixated elsewhere :whistle:

A Review by IQF!
Oh man, sometimes it's a delayed review like this one to really give a comprehensive one.

I LOVE that gif at the end. It is so adorable. Those legs....skinny in a nice way and she's fantastic in that crimson red.

mmm yea, I agree with the smaller breasted 163. I am really only fussy about the booty. To me, as long as breasts retain some good proportions, the size isn't much of a factor. Nipples are more important me.
But totally, would love next doll to be 145 with modest size breasts, and built-in vagina!

haha something about chicks in headphones. I like em.
I just got my babes some NBA caps. I think I should get them nice headphones too.
I keep Ariel 167 almost always on her belly so her big booty is to the sky and feet in the air - from behind, she always looks like she's gaming.

I really enjoyed reading the whole review. Nice and indepth.

Your Gif is INCREDIBLY GOOD!

I think DS will continue to amaze. They're very much at the forefront I feel

Best wishes

Thank you yes, the Alisa head is stunning and still my favorite DS head. I just had to have her and it helped me through some rough times. I need to find a way to do her justice.
Yes, I ordered her in June 2015. I'm not sure what happened to my dolls ankles but they do look different from other peoples dolls.?? It's almost like the metal inside got bent or the foam is not distributed evenly. But I am a total newb with doll skeletons. I've tried to bend it but it didn't feel like it would work and I don't want to damage the delicate silicone. As WaffleAnomaly said, she has plenty of other assets elsewhere. :wink:

It was tough to decide between the 145 and the 163. I know they are supposed to be the same proportionally but the 145 has a more scrumptious bubbly butt to me. All those pics of the 163's long legs did me in though! And the + boobs are pretty useful.

I like hot girls in headphones, they always look to be in ecstasy. :wink:

Thanks, I'm having a lot of fun with the gifs lately. :)
I'm glad I picked DS for my first doll. I'm betting I should save my money for the next doll model, but it is tough not to pull the trigger on the 167. I've filled out the order form a couple times! Which is another great thing about the user experience with DS. Building your babe on the website and dreaming of getting her.

Many people have raved about their 167 but there have been a few coming on to the market second hand quite early and I suspect weight is a factor - if one can handle the weight great. But when DS get the weight back to the intended 30kg range the 167 really is going to be a star of toy ladies and well worth saving for.

Best wishes
