Today’s arrival is an exciting one – yeah, once again. I’m very passionate about the doll hobby, lol! (ᗒᗜᗕ)՛̵̖ But yeah, I’ve been looking for this doll for several months. Pretty much right away after she was released, I knew I had to have her because her hairstyle and colour is quite unique in the neemo universe. ヾ(*´∀｀*)ﾉ I’ve been bidding on this doll several times on Yahoo!Japan but I always lost the auctions… and then there were ones that costed waaaay too much, because the doll that I wanted was a Doll Show exclusive. (-∧-；) Luckily a bit later, Azone released a label shop exclusive that had a slightly different outfit, but still the same hairstyle & colour – and that one ended up a bit easier to hunt down, and now she’s finally here!
Can you guess which neemo she is? (♡´艸`)
Box pile! (੭ु˙꒳˙)੭ु⁾⁾
On the left is my Amiami order and on the right is the neemo~ ヽ(･∀･)ﾉ
Eeeeverything in one pile, haha~ ╰(・∇・╰)
All the neemo clothes & shoes I’d ordered. Those brown boots got delayed for, like, half a year. (ーー;)
I also got this cute kitty for my phone, hehe~ (,,^・⋏・^,,) And then another one to give to mom, ’cause I’m sure she’ll fall in love with it and want one as well.
It’s so cute~! (੭ु >ω< )੭ु⁾⁾♡
Then, let’s move onto the main course: Kimono Sahra! (ﾉ´ヮ´)ﾉ*:･ﾟ✧
Out of the box. I really love the print on her kimono! (´,,•ω•,,)♡
This Sahra was a must because I looove her bright blue eyes and brown hair~ (人´ω｀*)♡
Obligatory Sahra comparison. ( ´ ∀ ` ) I think Sahra’s face has gone through the most changes amongst the A la Mode girls: her eyes are much bigger and there’s more black added to the top of her irises. The mouth is different, as well.
The bun was very tightly fixed with some kind of product. I’d like to get my hands on this stuff, too, lol~ (*≧▽≦)ﾉｼ))
No flyaways whatsoever. It didn’t come apart even with me pulling on it.
Eventually I twisted it open, although, it was all hard and didn’t look that nice, ahah… (( ´∀`;))
From the other side.
I washed the ponytail with warm water and got the product off.
The character that I have in mind for her is a bit unsocial and very serious, so the smile didn’t really suit her… which is why I repainted her mouth. I didn’t manage to do it very nicely, so I fixed it after taking these photos. (-∀-`; )
She’s so lovely~
Also, as a bonus: Himeno in her new romper! (๑•̀ㅂ•́)و✧
The name that I decided for this girl is Shizuka, kanji is 静歌 (literally “quiet song”). It just came to me when I saw those photos in Ringo-san’s blog, haha~ ( ´艸｀) Originally I meant for Shizuka to be Sumire’s twin… but because the faces ended up looking quite different, I think it’s better if Sumire is the elder sister and Shizuka is the middle sister, and Narumi the youngest of the family. You can read more about Shizu’s character on the profile page~ ー( ´ ▽ ` )ﾉ
