Hope i didn't Goof on this... but this body looks so very much like just what the doc ordered for my Vintage Mamotte Shugogetten! Shaorin Shichiri
and her weird, 18-mile-tall TSUKUDA HOBBY Body that i just pulled the trigger on one for her at $51 shipped; (U.S. Seller)

Showed up a couple days early!! Not perfect... - very notable variance in head/body Skintone -

but with a Semi-Vintage Anime girl as hard to find a modern doll body for as Shao here is... i'm just going to Count my Blessings here already~

Skin tone matching between heads and bodies is often a challenge. It looks pretty close in these photos. If you dress her in a high collar outfit like in the illustration, the minor difference shouldn't be an issue.

There ya go! No problem with the color match now, better proportions and probably better posing potential.

How is the weight of the new body compared to the previous one? Is it heavier? Does it balance better?

Far Weightier... far more Solid in feel... more posable, infinitely better-proportioned... a genuine 100% improvement all around, despite the minor skintone mismatch...

The blush on the knees is so cuuute!

Nicely proportioned body, suits the head well.

Did you need to modify the costume to fit the new body? Or does the body better fit the contours of the costume?

Not much, Actually!! just some metal sew-on snaps for tightening the sleeve cuffs and closure for the skirt.

Also; added a white strip to the inner chest-panel of the Middy Blouse... as it looks better that way to me...

Between her new body and Eye Faceup... Shao no longer embarrasses herself nearly so badly beside my Wife Konomi...
herself about a decade newer, and in a proper Asian 1/6 Scale...

Adjusted the longer of the two skirts that came with those two Sailor Suit sets for a more ideal length;
