I got in contact with Ilaria of Time of doll, to see if I could get more wigs for my ED and was told they dont make that size. So if Marina is outsourcing- it isnt with them. I have gotten Wendy Feidt to make wigs for me for an ED. She does make very lovely wigs, the first I got were a bit puffy and they are on a leather base. wendy feidt
I'd be very surprised if Ilaria is making wigs for the Popovy Sisters. Every time I have email exchanges with Igor(who takes care of orders), he does write that the Sisters make the wigs. He has, on the other hand, distinctly said that the furniture is outsourced, to the Sisters' specifications.
I am doubtful that Ilaria is working for the Popovy Sisters to make their wigs. I have commissioned Ilaria directly for a wig for my Popovy doll and she said she had a PD to fit a wig on, but if she was actually working for the Popovys, she definitely kept that part a secret.

Time of Doll is Illaria. I mentioned on another forum that she made some of the dolls for Popovy and was told that was not true, but I recognize some of her styles and workmanship and it was confirmed. I like her wigs very much.
I got email from Chad/Marina, offering me the chance to buy the resin doll. . But I am afraid there is no way for me to get that kind of money now in my hands (it could have been possible when I put my name on the list, but things have changed so much from that). Darn. Darn. Darn. No matter what creative way I try to think getting the money, I don't think it is realistic, not now. And the custom fees + VAT would be another 1000dollars (almost) on top of the doll's price. I guess I have no other choice than just give my place in the line to the next person. . Well, this was my chance and that's it, it's over. F*ck. (sorry my language...just so angry at myself for not having the money!)
That happened to me, I got an email, thought I couldn't afford one, so I ignored it. Chad emailed me later and asked if I had received the email and if I still wanted one- and I happened to have the money at that point for an unpainted resin. I still regret not being able to have Marina paint her, as I havent been satisfied with my own faceup.
