Nu Mood Body Descriptions – Tyler, Dance, Curvaceous and Heroic!

One of the great releases of early 2012 was our Nu Mood Fashion Doll line. A breakthrough in expressiveness, now our sculpts can use interchangeable foot and hand positions – among other mix and matchable pieces – allowing you to create that special look and pose. These Nu Mood dolls are made in 4 different body types so we compiled a breakdown of each to help the collector. Below are images and descriptions from our Body Description reference page beautifully put together by our website maestro Eric Goodman, along with some sculpt examples at the time of release to give you an idea how the body shows. When reading this a Fashion example may be sold out and in Archive already so be sure to check our current Nu Mood Collections page to see what is available.  If you have any questions about Nu Mood feel free to contact us here, or you can ask on our Facebook page too.

The Dance Body

• Classic dancer body
• Small bust
• Slim hips
• Detachable hands and feet
• Thirteen points of articulation
• 16” tall
• The Dance body is used on doll styles that require a small bust, such as ballet dancers or flappers. The dance body has been used for our New York City Ballet collection as well as our Memoirs of a Geisha collection. Doll can wear most Tyler Wentworth® style clothing. However, we suggest checking the bodice fit before purchasing as tops may be loose on this body. Wears Nu Mood™ Ballet slippers only (high heel feet that work with Tyler Wentworth shoes may be purchased separately).

* Please note that the hips on this body do not rotate.

  1. This is fantastic. May I re-blog this? I’m sure many of my readers will find it fascinating and informative.

  2. Thank you so much for this. I’ve been searching high and low on the internet for this information!

    • Allennoel,

      Glad you could find the information useful! We agree, it was a pleasure to get it all in one place.

      best,

  3. Wonderful Body Descriptions. Thank you for sharing!

  4. what does it mean when it says the hips dont rotate? I cant tell from looking at the picture since the hip joint and rear end look similar from Tyler to Dancer.

    Someday it would be nice if the knee joints rotated too.
