I gotta say, after having a few less than perfect dolly box openings, it feels amazing to get a brand new flawless dolly :)

I was as always, nervous that I wouldn’t like her or that she wouldn’t fit in. It took just a few seconds before I fell for her :) I hope she won’t give me too much trouble when I get time to give her a faceup.

Lea came home today <3

So, super quick list of what I think:
– she’s huge compared to PKF!
– Skin tone isn’t awful, but it’s not extremely nice either. Her head has a different color than the rest of her
– I like her body, it has a nice weight to it
– I can’t move her head much at all in the ways of up and down. For some reason the ring holding her head in place will move if I try, effectively making her head fall off.
– I think she’ll be darling with a faceup :3 (and new eyes and wig)

Conclusion: Not fond of her skin tone but I like her lots and think it’ll be love when she gets her face :> I’m very happy to own my first full Lati doll.

Oh praise the whatever, she is HOME

I’ve been stalking the tracking all day, when it finally updated I ran to the shop, stood in line for EVER because there was something wrong with the system, paid a wonderful sum of $160 in custom fees, rushed home while trying not to slip on the ice, telling my friend that I’d rather break an arm and a leg while protecting the box than break the box itself.

Most of the daylight is gone already, so dark crappy potato photos as usual:

The box was so tiny!

Okay, I have a few “complaints” about her. The shoulder “ball” thing? Her arm tends to jump out of it, and her elbows and knees also pop out of place just for funsies. Her elastic is so incredibly thin, I don’t think that is helping her any, and her hands are almost impossible to pose as they snap in one of two positions all the time.

But those things do not overshadow my love for this girl. She is so amazing, I’m sad my photos couldn’t capture her true beauty, and her resin is so smooth and soft and nice… I just hope I can give her a nice faceup soon, I’m dreading doing eyelashes on eyes that small! But it’ll be worth it in the end I hope :)

I’m so relieved to finally have her with me, and I’m thrilled that I love her as much as I do :) She’s resting on her beautiful white pillow right now, it must have been exhausting traveling here at the speed of a freaking snail ;P It’s almost fitting because she doesn’t remind me of someone who’d rush to get anywhere ;)

I hope to spam her more soon <3

A small ray of sunshine

I’m so tired of this. Every single package I get, the customs opens it. There’s this sticker they put on to show it’s been opened, and there are 3 boxes with alternatives to be ticked off, showing the reason they decided to open it. Not once have they actually ticked off any of the alternatives. I know customs have every right to open things, but every single time? And never telling why? It bothers me because not only does it take longer for my packages to arrive, they don’t always wrap things as good, which is always a worry with shipping dolls..

Anyway, I was still excited to open up my new little one. But I have to admit I got a small shock when I saw her. She was very filthy, I doubt she’s been cleaned a single time and I know she’s had at least two owners before me, and it was said she was from 2009, that’s quite a few years and I think she’s been heavily played with.

But dirt can always be washed off, I guess I’m the only one who at least rubs the dolls with a magic eraser before shipping them off to new owners ;P The next surprise came when I noticed her head “moves” differently from my other pukifees, at first I thought she might be glue sueded or something in her neck. Well, I pulled at her head, and the nastiest piece of string ever looked back at me. It’s gray! It’s still white elsewhere on her as far as I can tell, but eew! And there was some goo that came out as well, I don’t even want to know what it was.

Next “issue” was that her faceplate is really loose, which isn’t uncommon with PKF unfortunately, my Luna is like that as well, but I found that the magnets FL sends with were sort of glued to the other magnets in her head? The ones for ears and stuff like that? :P I didn’t even see them to begin with, and it took a bit of strength to get them out.

Before I go on even more, box opening pics taken with potato in bad light yay! :D

Oh, I forgot to mention that I love her weird hands! Her right hand is the default, but her left is from a completely different set! Actually, it’s the same combo I’m using on Litja ;D

So, underneath all that dirt and chipped faceup was this darling little thing. The only thing that worries me now is that dirty elastic, I reeally don’t want to restring her :S But look at her though, isn’t she adorable?

I can’t wait to find out more about who she is, and see how she’ll look with a faceup :D Conclusion; I’m happy <3

Bring back my Bonnie

I can’t wait to give her a faceup :)
