Before I start on about dollfies and such, I’ll just say this :woot: 200 posts!
And onto to the dollfieness! Since 2006, when I saw them in Japanorama, I’ve wanted a BJD. I’ve always been horrified by the prices. BUT, now, I’m gonna put that behind me. All of the dollfie stuff on DannyChoo has been encouraging my dollfie wants… And I’ve got a friend who was doing it too…. Kept sending me links to various sites I could buy them… started out with british sites and I ended up on LeeKeWorld. (They do ship to the UK.) I’ve been sorely tempted by the Dollfie Dreams, but I’ve realised that the normal, hauntingly beautiful BJD’s are what I want. Ones like Aquilla has.
I think… after staring at many doll faces…. Mabel… first spotted at DenverDoll. There were too… who I both liked… but…there was just something about Mabel. She does cost more…. about $48 more than the other one, Leira. But her face, her eyes… It’s the hair too I think… but she’s just so… so gorgeous…. I think I’ve set my heart on her, for when I get a BJD that is. I’m so tempted to just order her now… But I’ve decided to do as my friend is doing, and just save little by little. I already have £25, plus about £50 coming, £75 is a sizable chunk of the price. She costs $353 with face up(I couldn’t do the make up, not like it is in the pic… and thats how I want it…) And the wig I want is $27, totals $380, which is about £258. She’s a 1/4 size doll, stands about 40cm, there are two kinds of body I could choose from, a gentle or real body. I think I’d prefer the real body(I posted the pictures further down here) over the gentle. There is a Mabel-faced body you can get fully clothed, but its got snow-skin, too light even for my taste, and its over $600, yet that does include the whole outfit, wig and everything, but I’d prefer to pick out a nice white/cream dress for her…
Two distinctly different looks from the same face. The longer straighter haired face is more mature as opposed to the curls and bonnet loot, with less makeup. The curly haired one is more eye-lashy. But equally as darling. I wouldn’t mind either face up. But I’m guessing since I’d be ordering direct from the LeeKeWorld site, I’d be getting the latter of the two kinds. Which I wouldn’t argue with lol. Since I love em both equally.
It seems I’ve gone for another wavy blonde wig unconsciously lol. I didn’t realise it was that wavy untill I saw the pics from the back on the wig page. Now for the body comparison. First the real body, with Mabels head.
And then the gentle body, with a different head.
I’m still not quite sure which I’de prefer. I think the real body. I don’t know which has more movement. It looks like the gentle body might have just a bit more.
Anyways… thats it for the mo…. I have to fight with my brain not to just order it…. I have to save…. Heck, if I had a job I wouldn’t have to fight with myself, I’d just order it….:hmph: Right now with uni and all though, a job aswell would be a tad to much I think. I just know I want her…. Mabel… I don’t know if I’d rename her or not.. Mabel is quite a nice name. Old fashioned but nice. Night all!
