Varvara and Lucy
I put these two dolls’ photos on the same page only for convenience. They were made by different manufacturers and, other than both being made largely of silicone rubber, they have differing characteristics.
Varvara is a head made by Anatomical Doll of Vladivostok, Russia (no longer trading) in 2014. She borrows Faina‘s body and, sometimes, Lucy’s body, although the head connection in the latter is insecure.
Kharn of the Doll Forum came up with the excruciating title of this photo.
I said to one magazine team that, according to rumour, the Russians were bumping off attractive women living alone, plasticising their bodies, and selling them as life-size dolls. This was met by sideways glances and nervous laughter…
Varvara’s belly is identical to Faina’s belly: They time-share the same body.
Lucy is an Evolution body with the Chris head made by 4woods of Japan in 2008, although I acquired her from a previous owner in China in 2009.
