I recently bought a Person 21 from Secretdoll and am extremely happy that I did. With her pouty mouth and cute face this little one has so much attitude you can’t help but loving her. Secretdoll is a Korean company and I was very pleased with their service. Their site makes it easy to purchase a doll, they were quick at answering my questions on the Q&A board, their time frame from purchase to shipping was within the standard time. (two months) and once they gave me the shipping notice, she was here within three day.
I like this BJD much better than I thought I would because she is so charming and well made. She is 19cm tall, her foot is 2.2 cm, the Secretdoll site says she takes 16mm eyes, but I like 14mm much better, and her wig size is 6/7.
For clothing, on Etsy you can do a search to find the things made especially for this doll and Lati Yellow clothing also fits, but things are a little short on a Secretdoll because she is about an inch taller than the Lati Yellow. I have read that clothes for the Middie Blythe also fit, but cannot say for sure because I haven’t tried any yet. For shoes, Lati Yellow fit, and some Blythe shoes also work, if you like the over large foot look.
I bought Person 21, but it really was difficult to choose between the three Persons. Person 4 has the most dramatic of the faces and she was the first one I ever saw and fell in love with. Person 8 is the cutest or prettiest of the three, and 21 is kind of in the middle of those two. I will want a second Person doll and it will the the Person 4. Actually I’d like to have all three eventually!
These dolls can be kicky, meaning they are strung tightly and because of that their limbs like to curl up at the joints instead of remaining straight. This tendency is quite aggravating but can easily be fixed by hot glue suedeing the joints. You can find tutorials for this process at the Den of Angels forum, but what it means is using a hot glue gun to place hot glue inside the joints of the doll, especially the knees and hips.
The eyes that come with this doll are very interesting, they are made of paper, and while I kind of like them I didn’t want to keep them in her, so I used a pair of glass eyes that I already had. On my Person I added a bit to her face-up with a little more pastel shadow over her eyes, pink on the lower eye lid and pastel color along with light freckles bridging over her nose and cheeks.
