When I saw Hansel, I immediately wonder if this boy would be coming come in place of Smokey. And then I saw the surprise head. LOL!! I thought it was really weird, but someone pointed out it might look cute if a lollipop stick was placed on the mouth to make it seems like he was sucking on a lollipop (which I admit was kind of a pretty creative idea). Otherwise, I wasn't keen on the head at all and was relieved if it meant I could pass Hansel up. I even "ranted" on the Soom thread on DOA about how he would have came home already if Soom would just sell them as a basic set and offered the rest as optional add-on, a suggestion which I have feedback-ed to them several times in the past, including the time when they had a survey (okay, so maybe I spammed them).
Imagine my surprise when I first saw the announcement today on instagram that Hansel and Gretel's fantasy parts can now be purchased as an option, and they are also available in normal skin (yay!!) and cream white skin!!
I think Hansel and Smokey could pass off as twins though the different faceups may have caused Hansel's eyes to look a little bigger and lips a little smaller. Based on company's photos, I still prefer Smokey's overall look but I don't think Soom would accept doing custom faceup to make Hansel look more like Smokey. T_T
Now I am just waiting for Soom to reply a few questions and then I'll decide if Hansel will or will not be coming home. If they had done this earlier and allow us to buy the dolls as basic and added the rest of the fantasy parts as optional add-on, I would probably have gotten Cheshire cat and Grey as well already... but oh well, let's not tempt
