… Grown up!Yun is finally here! \o/ Well, she didn’t really take that long to arrive after I’d ordered her, but I dreamed about ordering her for years, haha. xD As I wrote earlier in the post about her shoes, I didn’t expect her to ship until, like, late April at the earliest. So I was super shocked when I received an email from Twiggy on the 19th, saying that my doll will be shipped out soon and she gave me the tracking number! O__O The package left China on the 23rd and arrived in Finland already last week’s Friday, so it only took her about 4 days to travel! Usually EMS from China takes at least a week, so I was really surprised. The Finnish postal service’s website hasn’t been working well for over a week and on Friday it quickly stopped working after I’d learned that she’s in Finland and that they’d moved the package somewhere… but then the website went down and I was like ???? where did you take her, I want to know!!!??? I had to wait until, like, Saturday afternoon before the tracking page worked again and I checked the tracking… she’d skipped customs and gone straight to sorting, on Friday evening even! Wow! O__O

Here’s a company photo of Linglan, in case someone isn’t familiar with the company.
Today I was a little nervous about her arrival, ’cause I had an early morning and wouldn’t be home again until around noon… they usually deliver EMS packages to me between 7:30-9:00 am. But the tracking didn’t work – surprise! not – so I had no clue whether they’re gonna bring her at all, let alone around what time. Soo then around noon I was home again and the damn tracking finally started working, and I saw this:
Disturbance in postal transport – unfortunately, delivery may be delayed.
I was like, the heck??? It’s been snowing since morning, so there were track marks on our yard and I thought that maybe the postman had already come while I wasn’t home… although, usually they put something like “Delivery attempt made, but the recipient was not reached.” and they also may put that they’ll make another delivery attempt later… so I was quite confused. But I was pretty sure that the mailman wouldn’t come again and that I would have to go and pick her up from the post office.
But, around 12:15 I get a phonecall, and it’s the mailman. He says that he has a package for me, so I went to meet him at the door. Then he tells me that he couldn’t come at all in the morning because he had a flat tire, and he had to wait forever for the car service people to bring him a new one, so he was only making his rounds now. PHEW! I told him that it was a good thing that he only came now, because I wasn’t at home in the morning. xD So, I got my package after all, haha! Thankfully, because I wasn’t too keen about cycling to the PO in the wind and snow to pick up a 3kg+ package. x__x Well, the package didn’t turn out to be super huge after all (compared to, say, Souldoll’s gigantic boxes – those are ridiculous), but anyway… EMS from China is super expensive, so I’m happy that I get the packages to my door because I’ve paid for the full service, lol!
But yeah, I took some BO photos… they’re not the best because I was super excited and the focus was all over the place, but… xD
WARNING! NAKED RESIN LADY AHEAD! Not safe for work, ahah. xD;;
I’m super happy with her, she’s sooo gorgeous! *_____* ♥ I totally love her body and her jointing is simple, but pretty and it actually WORKS (unlike some super “innovative” joints that don’t work at all *cough*Iplehouse*cough*). I’m also thankful that the Oasisdoll girl body has a waist joint and no under-boob-joint. I just don’t like those chest joints at all, they do not look nice and they don’t work. I’m all for natural posing, and boob joints go against human anatomy – I’ve said this before but I’ll say it again: PEOPLE DO NOT BEND AT THEIR RIBS. People bend at their WAIST, UNDER the ribcage. I want to send all the dolls that have chest joints to the hospital, lmao. I just think their ribs got broken and they’re in danger of puncturing their lungs. :’D;;; I wish sculptors reviewed human anatomy, I don’t like this trend at all.
But yeah, in addition to lovely joints, that body is also beautiful! She has actual hips and a bum!!! T__T ♥ So many female dolls have non-existent hips, okay, Korean girls don’t usually have very wide hips BUT since they also make these huuuuge silicone boobs for dolls and western faces… how about adapt the rest of western body types too??? Give ’em girls some thighs, hips and bum! I also like that the Oasisdoll Chic girl body isn’t super thin at the waist, her propotions are really nice to me. Yun’s a voluptuous girl, she has big boobs and wide hips and she isn’t skinny by all means… so this body is pretty much perfect. Well, the boobs could be a liiiiittle bit bigger, but… I suppose the two doll shells compensate each other ’cause mini!Yun has the perfect big boobs but no hips and bum, and now big!Yun has wide hips and a full bum but smaller boobs, haha~
And also! One more thing that I want to mention: HER SHOULDERS! She actually has shoulders! ♥ I love a hourglass type of body the most and maaany many many female dolls have super narrow shoulders, which often also makes them look bobbleheaded. The newer IT type Oasisdoll girl body also is smaller all around and has narrower shoulders, so the bigger heads like Linglan look bobbleheaded on that body. But this Chic body? No problem! The shoulders are just perfect~ ♥ There are some bodies that I like, such as Iplehouse’s nYID girl body because it has some lovely thighs and hips and big boobs – but jfc those shoulders are NARROW. I’m not sure if I can ever buy that body because I just don’t like the narrow shoulders (nevermind the idiotic joints). x__x Why are they so narrow… that body would make such a sexy hourglass shape if they were wider.
Maybe I’m just too picky, haha. xD But I have my own personal aesthetic and of course I want dolls that are pleasing to my eye… somebody else may feel differently and that’s perfectly okay. Everyone should buy the kind of dolls that they like. It really sucks the fun out of the hobby if you get too occupied with other people’s opinions. So, if you disagree with some things that I’ve said here, please don’t take it to heart. These are just my opinions and personal preferences. :3
Because the weather seems like it’s gonna be raining/snowing all week, I won’t have a chance to paint her face up before I leave town… I’m going to spend easter at my parents’ and then I’m heading off to Helsinki the next weekend to visit my brother in his new apartment. ♥ So I won’t be back homr in Jyväskylä until the 13th of April and then I’ll have a couple of busy days… but hopefully later that week the weather will be good for painting and I can introduce Yun then. Her wig should have arrived by then, as well. I totally need to take a photo of the two Yuns together, too. x3 ♥
Happy mizya is happy! My beautiful model girl~ And now she’s properly smiley, too… while i love her Narae version, she doesn’t really smile as much as Yun should. But Linglan is one happy-looking girl, haha! xD But well, this grown up version represents her when she’s older and married to Cin, so it’s no wonder she’s all smile, lol. xD Soon they’ve been married for a year in the story, and Yun continues to be all giddy as if they’re still newlyweds. :’D She loves Cin a lot~ ♥
