changes in doll plans

If you haven't met me in person, you probably wouldn't know how indecisive I am about... well, just about everything. I wouldn't exactly call this completely the fault of my indecisiveness, but it sure factors in quite a bit. In my previous doll plan post last month I decided that I'd be getting an OR-doll Eris, but now I'm not entirely sure that's possible given the state of Rene's health and the fact that the OR-doll website is no longer available, so I'm considering my alternatives but I'm not really leaning towards one particular doll right now :(

Just Lilly by gattina2688 on Flickr
LittleMonica Sophia was a doll I was considering when I was looking for bodies for Eris. I think she looks slightly more mature than baby-faced Lenny, which is a good thing. I also really like the LittleMonica bodies so that's a huge plus (and I've always liked LM since they came out with Yuria). Honestly, I don't think I have any cons for this doll - the sculpting is really gorgeous and she's extremely poseable so I might actually go for her. Incidentally, she's the highest priced on this list ;_; $610 including shipping.

Atropa from Spiritdoll
Another doll I discovered while searching for resin matches/bodies for Eris. Atropa has a much thinner face than what I'm used to, but she has a lovely melancholy expression that I really like too. My two concerns: she's a Spiritdoll Proud girl so she is 66cm tall, and by 66cm I mean REALLY tall. I'm not sure I have enough space for that. Her profile also looks a little bit odd to me around the lip area, but it's nothing I can't deal with. $550 including shipping.

Amber by Michiru on Flickr
This last doll has had nothing to do with my Eris body search - I actually discovered her a long time back and have admired from a distance for awhile now. I originally wanted a different doll from the same company, but I decided against it because I didn't like the way her extremely large forehead worked with the rest of her face. Since Amber is also from BeYours, I'm worried she might have the same problem but I can't find any owner pictures showcasing the issue. She's a lovely doll and considerably easier on my wallet than any of my other choices (even Eris), but I'm not entirely sure I want to go for her yet. $435 including shipping.
