This is Fortitude in the Tea skin tone and if you have not already guessed from the amount of times you see me take her out - she is one of my fave girls. When I saw her prototype at first, the mouth looked really odd to me and still does - but there is something about the blend of the bits I like (eyes, eyebrows) combined with the somewhat odd mouth that l personally find appealing. We did make a prototype of her with a mouth that looked like Kizuna/Athena, but the Fortitude design lost its appeal without the original mouth. I guess that the correlate amount of imperfection really does make her perfect in my eyes.
On a related note, I saw that there was a huge amount of pushback on the semi-real line of Smart Dolls that we develop - voices from folks who ended up getting one - or two ;-)
Are there Smart Doll characters/sculpts that you first thought of "meh" that you eventually ended up buying?
