Recast vs legitimate doll comparisons, and random doll-related tutorials.
I am anti-recast, pro-owner. I will never bully or harass anyone, but I'm choosing not to support recasts any longer. This blog contains comparisons and information for helping to identify recasts sold on the secondhand market.
I do not make, sell, or traffic in bootleg/recast dolls or any other product.
I do not provide information on where or how to buy them.
Any recast information on this blog is for information purposes only, for identifying recast products on the second hand market.

Inside the back of the head, on the
headcap, you will find a raised seal with the letters "LLT". On a
recast, this will be blurred or indented.
The finish on the outside of the
head is flawless, with little to no seam lines. On the inside, there is some
bumpiness from the initial sculpting. This is hard to photograph, but it is
there if you look hard enough.
Resin color: Matches Volks.
I have two LLT sculpts, both legit.
I do not own recasts of LLT. My second LLT I neglected to ask for the
certificate and box, so we will see comes. I know this head is legit, because
it is not available recast.
