I’d planned on getting the three backlogged box openings out of the way before this newest one, but… things don’t always go to plan I guess. (;´Д`) I’ve had lots of stuff to do lately, there doesn’t seem to be enough hours in a day to do everything. I haven’t completely given up yet, though, one day I’ll have this blog up to date, one day… !!! (๑•̀ㅁ•́ฅ)
But well, let’s post about these two girls before this one gets stuck in the drafts folder for weeks, too, ahah… ((´∀`;)) My newest Pureneemo family additions arrived today: Otogi no Kuni series Nina & Chisa~ ヾ(@°▽°@)ノ At first I was only interested in Nina because to be honest I’ve never cared much for Chisa personally… buuuut somehow this one kept tugging on my heart strings. (●´□`)♡ I guess I just had to find “the one” for me? Ringo-san is a horrible enabler and kept posting so manu cute shots of these girls on twitter that eventually I gave in and ordered them both. \(-ㅂ-)/ ♥ ♥ ♥ It’s dangerous to shop before 5am, you put more stuff in your cart than you should lol… I was a little afraid that I might end up regretting getting them both, but… luckily that didn’t happen.
Let’s move onto the photos… it was SUPER gloomy today and I had to use ISO800, even, so the photos are pretty horrible in quality. Σ(゜ロ゜;) I’m very sorry about that.
Both of these girls are really cute, but I was rather disappointed because of the hair troubles and the sloppyness with some of their accessories. (´;︵;`) In addition to the earmuff hairbands the shoes are a bit sloppily made as well… these two cost 1000 yen more than the other Otogi no Kuni releases so far and that’s one reason why I’m a little miffed that there were problems with them. ლ(｡-﹏-｡ ლ) Little Red Hood Koron had kinda messy hair, too, but otherwise everything about her was perfect so I didn’t feel as disappointed with her as I was with these two. But well, after fixing them up a bit, I do feel that they’re super cute and both are definitely staying! (´,,•ω•,,)♡
The names that I chose for these two are Momoka (Nina) and Chinatsu (Chisa). Although, as usual, I’ll mostly speak of them as Momo and Natsu because I like using nicknames for my dolls, lol. The kanji that I chose for Momoka is 李華, which literally means “plum flower”. Chinatsu’s kanji is 小夏, “little summer”. You can read about their personalities on the profile page: here. ( ´ ▽ ` )ﾉ
I’ll add the translations to the story tomorrow, right now I’m too tired to decipher some of the more unfamiliar kanji, so… yeah. Please bear with me for a bit longer! Translation complete! Took a few artistic liberties with it, but the main idea is there, so… ((´∀`;))
