Shy little one arrives

July 8th, 2015 | Posted by mizya in Azone

Another new arrival here, ahah! (;´∀`)

This girl arrived in Finland last week’s Thursday and of course the mail was being slow and she didn’t arrive on Friday like I’d hoped… I went to my parents’ place on Monday morning so I wasn’t able to pick her up that day… sooo I had to wait until now, Wednesday night, to pick her up. I was super excited about her, as she’s also a neemo that I’ve been looking for quite a while now… because I’m not very keen on paying those inflated prices at 18000-25000yen. (ーー;) Eventually I managed to win her at Y!J for 13000 yen, which was quite reasonable, yaay~

But yeah, photos:

Finally the box, yaaay!!! (ノ>▽<。)ノ

Dark bubblewrap, hmm… You can see a bit of pink from under it, eheh~

It’s Majokko Chiika!(*´▽`*)♥

Finally this black kitten joins my crew! ♥ In addition to bunny themed neemos, I need to collect (black) cats as well, lol~ (ᗒᗜᗕ)՛̵̖

Chiyo and her things. That cat plushie is the best thing ever!! (*≧艸≦)

Since Chiyo’s hair was all bent, I figured I could show the system that I use for straightening my neemos’ hair. I use this Obitsu multi-stand to keep the boiling water away from my hands.

You could pretty much cross the clasp if you wanted, but this much is ideal for stuffing it inside a neemo’s head.

Here you can see the neemo head attached on the clasp… I feel a bit bad for doing this, lol! (・∀・;)

With my macro lens I couldn’t get a focused photo of me holding it, so instead you’ll have to imagine that I’m holding onto the base of the stand. This way the water won’t flow onto my fingers ’cause there’s enough distance between my hand and the doll’s head. There are probably better ways to do this, but this is mine, lol!( ´∀`)

The stand is also really useful for leaving the hair to dry so that it stays straight, and then you can also easily wax & style it! (๑˃̵ᴗ˂̵)و

Auughhh, she’s sooo cuuuute! (。’▽’。) The Chiika face is a million times more adorable in person. Now I get why a lot of people list Chiika as their favourite neemo. Adorableeee~ ♥

Sachi came to inspect the newcomer…

… and spots something interesting.

It’s a cat! Sachi loves cats! Chiyo isn’t sure what to make of the situation…

これは私の物だ~!(=ↀωↀ=)✧
This is mine~!
えーえっと… ((((。(´°Α°`)。))))
U-Umm…

… やれやれ… ヽ( ̄д ̄;)ノ
… Oh dear…

Chiyo is quite timid personality-wise. When I was choosing a name for her, I wanted to pick one starting with “Chi” because I like the name “Chiika”… and I was also thinking about her black kitty theme. So when I suddenly realised that there’s the name “Chiyo” and found this writing for it: 千夜 I knew I’d found the perfect name! (☆▽☆) Because that kanji reads as “a thousand nights”. I thought it was spot-on for a black little kitty~ ー( ´ ▽ ` )ノ Although, I’m sure I’ll dress Chiyo in lighter clothing as well, because I also like white and ivory with pink. But yeah, her name can also work as a tribute to one of my favourite series, Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun. Actually I realised I accidentally made a double tribute to it, since I decided to name my incoming BlackxPink Yuzuha as Yuzuki, haha! But it’s all good~ ♥ If you haven’t read or watched Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun yet, do it! That series just cracks me up, oh gosh~ (*≧▽≦)ノシ))

But yeah, Chiyo! I’m happy to have her home~ O(≧∇≦)O Ever since I got Sumire with her super long hair, I was even more motivated to find this Majokko Chiika because she also has loooong hair. It seems even longer since Chiyo has the S-body, eheh~ (ノ≧∀≦)ノ ♥ For now she still has the Flection body, but my Amiami June order was shipped a few days ago and thus I’ll get a Full Flection body for her soon, thankfully! ♥

Here’s a better photo that I took of this cutie:

She’s such a little darling~

Yay for the first pink-haired neemo in this household!! ヾ(@^▽^@)ノ Her eye colour is super pretty too~ ♥

    Aw she is adorable, I love watching your neemo family grow. :D I was a bit obsessed with this Chiika last Summer but wasn’t able to buy her and then my latest Himeno stole her characeter. xD But I hope to have her in my collection one day. ^^ With the boiling water method, do you pour it over the head or do you dip the hair in the water? Will this also remove old wax? On my brown haired Koron the dust getting stuck in the wax is much more visible than on my other girls.

      Aww, thank you! ^^ She’s very cute indeed, I hope that you’ll be able to find her! :D Took me a while to track her down for a reasonable price, too, but she was well worth the hunt!

      I boil the water in an electric kettle, so I pour it on the doll’s head (more towards the back of the head, I try not to get it on the front to keep the bangs intact) on top of the sink. And it should remove wax, at least the Volks water wax that I use can easily be washed off. :3 That’s why I always have to apply wax again after doing hair maintenance for my straight-haired girls, haha. xD

        Thanks! Haven’t figured out the whole thing with shopping services yet so I’m only looking at Mandarake these days. But I think I have some other ones higher on the wishlist right now (a Lycee and a Mia) and also waiting for the Chisa coming this Winter. :D Just got my fox Lien home yesterday, now when everyone gets their Briar Rose Lien hehe.

        Okay, good to know. :) So the vinyl head and face-up wouldn’t get damaged if it got water on or is it really important to not get the water on the front? Did you get some water in the bangs here or did you only use wax for it? So many questions, sorry. xD I use Azone wax right now, but don’t know if I like it or not.

    Voi ei mikä söpistys _<'. Parhaimmillaan sen hinta vain on noussut koko ajan. Nakukin versio on ollut lähes samaa hintaluokkaa kuin ennen tavaroitten kanssa. Hyh.

      Söpö on juu~ ;u; Tuli tästä tytöstä heti yksi suosikeistani! ♥ Nämä pinkkihiuksiset Chiikat tuntuu olevan kovin kaikkien mieleen, kun niiden hinnat on aina pilvissä… >.<
