Introduction
I have designed ScoonimDolls to be used as models for (erotic) photography. They have a very soft and flexible skin and bodymass and a fully posable internal skeleton. The skeleton is rather unique for it is much more similar to the human skeleton then any other doll (or at least that I know off). The ScoonimDoll skeleton does not only copies human posability, but it also copies as much as possible the physical form. I have chosen to do so because a lot of the forms of the human body are based on the actual shapes of our skeleton. Especially when posing the body into more extreme positions the importance of this shaping is noticeable. Because a lot of our bones are right beneath our skin the positioning of the ScoonimDoll skeleton in the mould is needs to be done with great care. It is the part of making with the biggest risk. Because when after the final cast I am not fully satisfied with the result there is only one option: strip the doll and do it all over again... Make sure you are not somewhere near when that happens (it happens!)

Skeleton
The ScoonimDoll skeleton is a combination of materials (steel, brass, poly-urethane resins and PVC). The skeleton contains parts of hinge frame and wire frame. All joints operate steplessly variable. With exception of the fingers, all joints that are supposed to be used frequently and have to operate within a wide angle are genuine hinges. These joints also have been treated to operate with a certain friction in order to maintain the desired position. In the development of ScoonimDoll a considerable amount of time I have spend on optimizing the durability of the stiffness of the hinges.

Soft parts
The body of a ScoonimDoll is layered. The very soft bodymass (pigmented) and the tougher topskin (transparant) are made of poly-urethane hybride gel resins. Between these layers there is a dry powder pigment layer to reduce the stickyness of the bodymass surface and to animate the solid coloring of the bodymass. The topskin has to protect the coloring layer from moisture. It is as flexible as the bodymass, but not sticky. Like human skin its toughness causes the skin to wrinkle a bit. This skinlayer however is very very thin and does not offer any serious protection against damage.

The posable face, the hands and feet are multicasted. They contain parts that are of a bit harder rubber than the rest of the body.

Posable parts
ScoonimDolls can imitate 95% of all human position possibilities and remain standing in that position. Compared to the first generation, the new generation is much more advanced and refined. The most noticeable new technical features are that the dolls can make genuine facial expressions and the breasts are posable. They also have the ability to move the hands sideways and they can move the big toes. Because these new features are rather costly I will offer them as options.

The list below gives an impression of the posable parts of a ScoonimDoll.

Neck, head and face
Unlike almost every other posable doll, the face and head of a ScoonimDoll are one with the body. So there is no clear parting line around the neck or face. Eventhough this complicates the production and increases the risk of damage ( you cannot exchange the head when damaged), I prefer to hold on to this because it makes the dolls more complete and human looking. It also increases the number of realistic looking positions*. The head crown has a hole in which a screw can be fixed. With this the ScoonimDoll can be secured in the prepaired suitcase for transport or storage.

*positions in which a naked doll can be put without the need of tactical elements (clothing, accessories, ect.) to conceal disfiguring parts.

Facial expression and eyes
The face of a ScoonimDoll is posable. In the first generation ScoonimDolls you were able to position and squeeze the eyes. Special wireframes in the eyebrows and cheekbones supported this.
The new ScoonimDolls have on top of that seperate upper eyelids that can move independent an steplessly variable. They also influence the position of the eye corners, which results in even more facial expressions. These expressions can be further enhanced by adjusting the skull wireframes.
Also the eyeballs are custom made. They have genuine lenses. The color of the eyes and the size of the pupil are optional.

Hair
A ScoonimDolls hair is not a standard wig. It is custom made to the head and has a permanent fix. Within some limits, the haircut can be made to client specifications The Hair itself is viscose, because real (long) hair cannot be scaled in diameter and is therefore often too thick, which results in a unnatural look.
Technically it is possible to use very fine mohair for a short haircut model. Within limitations the color of the hair is also optional. The same goes in color and shape for the pubic hair.

Mouth, teeth, tongue
A ScoonimDoll has a mouth that can be opened. The jaw of the first generation was made of resin that had a hinge connection to the skull. This jaw could move vertically, but could not be put into a stable position.
In the new generation the resin jaw has been replaced by a double wire frame. This enables the mouth to be positioned in every way and can also be reshaped, which influences the appearence of the face.
The wire frames connected to the cheekbones have been reshaped in such away that it also influences the positions of the mouthcorners, making even more facial expressions possible. The mouth is teethless. Several special sets of teeth can be put into it, when desired. Sets of teeth are sold seperatly together with some tongues.

Vagina and anus
A standard ScoonimDoll is equiped with appr. 0,5 inch deep holes behind the closed, but flexible labia of the vagina and the anus. Both can be penetrated. A special accessory set is available. When requested prior to the final casting the making of the holes for vagina and/ or anus can be omitted.
Notice:
- Making a hole afterwards is not possible without considerable and unrepairable damage to the surface.
- A ScoonimDoll is not a lovedoll. Intercourse with a human is not possible and will result into permanent an unrepairable damage to the ScoonimDoll.

Hands and feet
The making of hands and feet is a particulary delicate job. Therefore I make them prior to the casting of rest of the body. With exception of the little fingers, all fingers can be placed into position for they have an internal wire frame.
I have developed a special mouldsystem to make a tripple layer casting for the hands. The finger tips are the third layer of the casting, made of a special resin compount. It is chemically related to the resin I use for the rest of the finger, but it is much harder. It keeps the wire frame in the tip of the finger centered and concealed in order to prevent the sharp end of the thin metal wire damaging the doll.
Next to the hinges in the wrists the new ScoonimDolls have hinges in the lower part of the palms of their hands which enables them also to move their hands sideways. This extra feature I have added mainly to increase the positioning possibilities of the hands when touching the breasts (now they can push them forward more nicely), but of course that is not the only thing it is handy for.
For a series of picture of the hands see: ScoonimDolls/galleries/gallery 2.

The feet have been equiped with a hinge in the ankle and a posable wire frame in the middle part of the foot. It enables the feet to stand flat on the ground, but also to stand on their toes or fit in high heel shoes. There is no wire frame in the toes.
