  • Customer Service Questions:¬†If you have any questions about this head, it would be best if you looked at the designer‚Äôs profile, his name is Vista Barnes, to see how he¬†prefers to be contacted for customer service issues as I will probably not be able to assist you with that.

    Looks good. I have the Lia one. Do you think that the skins being created for Genus are better?

    Great video as usual Strawberry. I have the male version Gerard for a couple of years now and really love it. It is nothing similar to anything else on the market and very customizable.
    The only thing I noticed, and it seems to be the case for the Emily head, the neck cannot be colored…. !! or am I missing something. You cleverly wear a necklace or collar to hide the difference between the head and body skin color but this is something I am having a lot of trouble accomodating, even with the neck options that come with the body (Adam).
    Is there another option?
