I bought the doll from Your Doll which has served me well in the past. They did a good job, again, in ushering the doll from ordering to delivery in three weeks. The box was sturdy with foam supports and extra strengtheners along all sides. The doll is about 29kg, heavier than I expected possibly due to the soft head which is quite heavy but beautifully sculpted. At around $2000 after discounts I think I got good value. I have yet to detach the legs as I want to re-visit the videos in FJ’s YouTube site.
The doll has soft silicone heads (two suppled) and hardened feet instead of bolts for standing. Detailed painting and weight reduction were free extras. The silicone is quite soft but realistic to the touch when powdered (I use a Japanese doll powder from Kanojo Toys). I am favorably impressed by the skeleton which is firm but moves smoothly.
I have just unboxed and powdered the doll and added a merkin. She will end up wearing a cheongsam to showcase the nice Chinese ethnic face. At the moment, she is still showing off her curves. I have named her BanLu (meaning companion).

With the stockings, the cut of the legs does not look visible.
If I understand correctly, BanLu will be a great traveler. I will be interested to know how you will travel. I've seen questions about dolls with detachable legs several times now, from guys who are on business trips. I think your experience will interest a lot of people.
