Excuse me while i favorite basically half of your entire doll gallery. It's just that good. 

Oh, by the way, I have to ask you: How are you able to bring your dolls outdoors? Doesn't the air (humidity, cold, heat, etc) hurt them? And aren't they stained by dirt really easily? Also, does rain affect them, whether or not they're outside? Thank you! :D

Thank you. x3

These dolls are hard plastic, with a relatively smooth surface. Humidity does nothing to the plastic, but if it continues for a long time, the strings would need changing eventually, however Finland's climate is very dry so that's not an issue. Heat would only be bad if it was so hot the plastic started melting/bending, but Finland isn't that hot either. xD Cold could be bad if you let your doll freeze and then bump it into something when it's fragile like that, but if you're careful, it's not an issue (I wouldn't leave them outside during winter, but 2-3 hours for a photoshoot has been completely fine). Rain is also fine, soaking the dolls in water (stream/lake/pool/sea) is another thing, though. The plastic itself will be fine again, as will any painting on the doll as long as it's coated, but the string will need drying out separately or be changed. The most harmful thing outside is the sunlight, actually: it causes the colour to yellow which is not a good thing if it happens unevenly (like there's a line where the clothes were, kinda like you'd get a tan yourself) or too strongly. All dolls yellow eventually anyway, but sunlight can cause extreme colour change etc. so it's not good. But short times in the sun are fine.
Because of their surface (and the protective coating you can put on) any dirt is also easy to clean off. You can pretty much do anything with these dolls, and they won't get damaged as long as you're ready for the after care.

No problem!

Thank you so much for the detailed reply! This was very helpful! I might live in a rainy climate one of these days, so I'm also glad to hear that it won't be a problem for the doll's skin or something!
