Yesterday arrived a small package from Withdoll. ( ´ ▽ ` )ﾉ Some of you might remember that a couple of years ago I ordered Baby Withdoll Stacy to dollify Jae Sun’s daughter, Mi Sun. But in the end the face didn’t convince me in person and I sold the doll quite soon. Withdoll has released many cute tinies but none of them have been perfect – until Fox Lucy. I was completely smitten the moment I saw her, I love how she has such a happy expression and the Asian features were a huge plus – since Mi Sun is Korean (well 1/4 part Japanese I’d suppose as her mom is half-Japanese, half-Korean) I definitely wanted to make her look the part.（*’∀’人）♥ Financially Lucy’s release didn’t come up at a good time, but thankfully due to my sort-of-PR-person status, I’ve grown close with the staff of Withdoll and they allowed me to pay for little Lucy with layaway. Yay! *(*´∀｀*)☆
I placed the order on the 10th of June and received a shipping notice on the 22nd of August. The tracking number started working on the 25th, so it seems like it’s safe to say that Withdoll’s packages get picked up on Thursdays. I remember I’ve had some other dolls shipped earlier in the week as well, but they didn’t make it to the post office until Thursday. So, it does sound like they’ve arranged for the packages to be picked up on Thursdays. I remember reading that some other companies also have certain days when a truck comes to pick up the packages and takes them to the post office.
But let’s move onto the box itself! Customs kept the package as hostage for a couple of days, so it took a while to get the package home even though it made on a direct Finnair flight from Seoul to Helsinki, as opposed to cruising around Europe first. The customs office used to be more efficient, I don’t get why they’re so slow with packages these days, grrr!
Then I hurried to paint the new little one, because I was curious to see her with a face up. The weather was gloomy & rainy in the morning, but thankfully in the afternoon the sun came out and I was able to spray MSC without any huge problems. (๑•̀ㅂ•́)و✧ I should’ve sanded the head first, though, as usual with paper white resin, there were some rougher patches where pastels didn’t stick smoothly. I’ve completely sanded Mi Cha’s head, too, to make it easier to paint her. She is also White skin, you see. I prefer getting White skin and then blushing it a bit peachy, Cream White is a bit too yellow to my taste and Rose White is too piggy pink. (.`･﹏･´.)
Today I also made a dress for Mi Sun, it didn’t turn out too well but at least she’s got something of her own:
Despite the unexpectedly big size of her head, I do love her face and she looks exactly like I’ve envisioned Mi Sun to look like; a tiny Riya (her mom), lol~ (੭ु´͈ ᐜ `͈)੭ु⁾⁾ She’s sooooo cute~ (ෆˊ͈ ु꒳ ूˋ͈ෆ) ❤️ Funnily enough, it’s easier to balance her when she has a wig on, as opposed to without… but I’d hope that Withdoll would consider reducing the head size a bit, it would look better to me. But then again, it might be just my personal preference because I don’t really like bobbleheaded dolls… (^～^;)ゞ
Now all I need is a more mature-looking Riya and the little family is together~ (人´ω｀*)♡ But sadly I’d need her to be a Narae, in White skin, and Bimong doesn’t seem to be willing to sell White skin… the Normal skin is definitely too dark and orangey pink to my taste, and I wouldn’t want Riya to have a darker skin colour than Jae anyway. I would prefer my guys having darker skin than the girls, OR both to be pale.
