So he finally arrived yesterday, and I’m actually posting pictures of one of my openings. This doll is from Tata’s Paradise and is a XuanHao mold, who I find is channeling Delf El a little, now that I see him in person and blank. He’s a lovely doll and his sculpt is fantastic, though his posing is limited.
Follow along in the gallery to see examples of his posing and my notes on him. Later on I’ll have comparisons with my other boys. Please please forgive the horrible and inconsistant lighting, I did all of these shots at night.
By the way, this box opening is a re-enactment, since I was impatient and opened him while watching So You Think You Can Dance Canada. ^^; « Read the rest of this entry »

You know, I’m starting to seriously wonder if I should bother buying the Tan Louis or not… I’ve heard some iffy reviews on Glorydoll’s customer service and I have firsthand knowledge that they tend to delay delay delay. Judging by my first question in the Q&A, I should have had him at home by now, instead it’s “we’ll release next month”, EVERY MONTH. >_> Not to mention I’ve heard that the engineering and posing of these guys and gals is not great, and I myself have been iffy on the body sculpt, figuring I would overlook the things I don’t like for the sake of his lovely tan. I’m better off buying other dolls that I also really want who will be undoubtedly cheaper… Heck I can buy several, depending on what his price will be! And in the future I can make my own petite tan guy.
But what happens if I see him and I HAVE to have him, but don’t have the money because I’ve spent it on another doll already? I don’t want to end up regretting not buying a dream doll because I bought a different doll I could get any time.
What to do, what to do…

So yeah… Sae Yan.
What precious hands… *_* I haven’t wanted a doll this much since Benson…
Also, LittleFée!! Squee! Though I think I’ll wait for new headmolds as these aren’t doing much for me… Picture a LittleFée Shushu @___@
ALSO: I got my tracking number today so Silas is on his way home~ ♥

*Does cartwheels* I’ve sold my Miho head, and my Soom Sard, now I should be able to pick up the Yujin head (and possibly re-sell him anyhow), and Glorydoll Louis… IF THEY EVER START SELLING HIM! Grah! Does it really take so long to decide on the price for a tan doll? This wait is getting really ridiculous. I’ve also been hearing not so great things about their customer service… But where else can I get a tanned SD10 sized boy…? And I’m not interested in Volks.

Oh gosh, so I actually did it. I put my big boys up for sale! >< Wish me luck as I’m extremely reluctant to sell them (especially Sard), but it’s better overall if I do.
Here’s the link, you have to be a member at DOA to view the marketplace though.
I’m thinking of going ahead and buying the Migidoll Yujin head like I planned, and do his face-up still though. I’m undecided about my mid-sized big boys (Dollmore Kara Klum, XuanHao, Yujin), but we’ll see what happens when the ones I don’t have yet actually arrive. I’m almost 100% certain I’m keeping Iago (my Kara Klum), because he’s got such charming personality and because he’s actually quite slender compared to the other lads I’ve had, but I’ve got to see if he could use some friends around his size. Glorydoll Louis is still a go if they ever put him up for sale, and maybe a small-bust SD13 or SD sized girl, but otherwise I think tinies and minis are the way to go for me.

Here’s introducing my newest baby, Lamiel, a Rosen Lied Ravie basic. For the first time ever I’ve actually chosen to get the default face-up, mostly because this little guy is so sweet he charmed me from the start~ Of course, that is also how I came up with his name, as “miel” is honey in french. Have my first gallery post too. 🙂

I’ve been thinking a lot lately of selling off my larger dolls like my Sard and my Husky, mostly because I never play with them. I’ve noticed that 60cm seems to be my upper limit of interest. As much as I like looking at the bigger lads, I just can’t seem to bond with them. Anything below 60cm though is fine (for example I love fiddling with my Kara Klum), and tinies and minis are becoming more and more appealing to me. The extra money wouldn’t hurt either, and I could pick up a few more tinies and minis I really want instead…
