Hello stranger!

Wow, it’s been awhile hasn’t it?  Consider this the next chapter in the doll story below.  I tried to like him.  Really and truly, I did.  I just don’t.  He’s sitting on the TV stand smoking a cigarette and pouting.  I’ll probably put him up for sale eventually but I haven’t told him yet.  It’s probably better if he doesn’t know.  (Just kidding, I don’t actually think the doll has real feelings.)

There have been more additions to the doll family since him.  The first one is a Dollshe Saint because I found out they were going to stop making them and knew I had to act now or I’d suffer the fate of never owning my very own Saint.  Of course, this giant man also could not take the place of the missing member of the group.  But fear not!  I have brought home the final boy.  He’s an Iplehouse JID Daniel.  He’s very pretty and quite perfect.  So the “crew” is complete or as complete as I had ever intended.  I haven’t taken a group photo yet, I haven’t had the chance but I do have a photo of the new boy so, here he is!

You’re not the one…

Back in February I pre-ordered a limited edition doll.  I loved the photos of this doll.  He arrived today.  Yes today, that was one long wait.  I’d already had this sinking feeling when I saw other owner pictures and I’m afraid it was confirmed when I got him.  I don’t like him.  His head is way too small for his body.  I thought my JID had a tiny head but his is even smaller.  I don’t really know what to do so I’m not going to do anything for awhile.  I’ll keep him and stare at him and see if he grows on me.  If not, I suppose I’ll sell him.  I do like his body so I may just try to sell the head.  It sucks but what can you do?  I can’t even say live and learn because he wasn’t a spur of the moment decision.  I contemplated it for quite some time before finally making the purchase.  I guess more than anything he doesn’t fit in with my collection.  His little pinhead makes him look strange beside the others.  I hate the wig they sent with him but pinhead’s head is too small for any of the wigs I have.  They say he takes 7 but I don’t think so.  I’m going to measure his head myself.  Poor doll isn’t packing much below the waist either.  Not that it matters but they should keep things in proper proportion.   I’m hoping that a different wig will make a huge difference in my feelings but I’m not sure it will.

Whatever the case he can’t be part of “the crew” and that’s a problem.  I expected him to be the final member to complete them and he doesn’t work at all.  That means, if I want to complete them, I need another doll.  When I saw his promo pictures I thought he’d be so perfect I guess more than anything I’m disappointed that he doesn’t work.  He’s not ugly by any means.  He just isn’t right.  I should cry about it where other doll owners will give me virtual pats on the back but I can’t even bring myself to post in DOA and say what happened and how I feel.  Since basically no one reads this blog I’ll just kvetch here instead.  Poor me, how I suffer!

New kid in town…

Well more like a man really.  He came a little while ago.  I haven’t been very good about blogging but here’s a photo.

Iplehouse EID Dexter

He’s a big boy, just over 2 feet tall.  He’s an Iplehouse EID Dexter with “real skin” (that’s the colour of his skin) and on a superhero body.  He’s also really heavy.

For comparison sake, I took a picture of him next to a Barbie.  Since I assume pretty much everyone is familiar with the size of a Barbie it would put him into proper context.

Barbie and Iplehouse EID Dexter

Barbie is a Barbie Basics rebodied on the Elvis Barbie body.   The Dexter has the basic face-up A from Iplehouse.  The outfit he’s wearing is also from Iplehouse.  The Barbie is wearing a top and skirt from Clear-Lan and Christian Louboutin shoes.

Flawless

The other day I managed to find someone selling a NRFB Flawless Elise Jolie for a reasonable price. I won’t mention that I may or may not have also bought a OOAK Elise… Anyway, I’m so excited to have purchased this doll. She is, for me, the epitome of a fashion doll. With the previous mention and Imogen arriving today, I’m definitely doll happy. The only thing that’s really missing is a blonde Poppy.

Last night I just happened to be on MFD when what did I find? A 2011 Integrity Convention Auden. I’m not sure my brain had fully even registered what had happened as I completed the check out process. Needless to say, I’m super excited! I’d admired/wanted Most Beautiful Boy Auden for awhile and then I saw the new convention version with the black hair and wanted that one even more. He’ll fit in very nicely and I’ve already got plans for him. I can’t find anywhere to link to a picture so I guess we’ll just have to wait until he arrives.

For now, here’s Elise, doing that thing she does. Being awesome, that is.
