Currently researching African tribal face paints and will do a prototype for Harmony first. As for the cocoa guy - I have decided to do a sculpt just for him as the Eiji sculpt does not have the features that suit his skin color.
While I’m not black (surprise surprise) , I was raised by a black foster family when I was a child back in Hackney London (surprise surprise) so you see I want Smart Doll to also be the pioneer in Black fashion dolls. I should have a nice collection ready for Anime New York this November.
If you are knowledgeable about African face paints and want to chime in then leave a note.
Oh and more new Tea girls are being developed as we speak. #smartdoll
