Or maybe it isn't fickleness. I think I'm returning to my BJD roots, so to speak (since my BJD roots only go back to March of 2004, this is laughable, but bear with me, 'kthnx). Y'all know that I've dabbled in the more realistically-sculpted BJDs pretty heavily: Saint, Bella Auden, Ryu, Jin Woo. But I find myself lurching back, all of a sudden, into a passion for what I think of as an earlier BJD proportion and style. I've always loved my Customhouse dolls, and now . . .
. . . well, now I have a Megu on the way, and I'm thrilled to pieces. I've had a secret hankering for a Four Sisters that's lasted for a long time now; I'm not sure I'd call her a "dream doll" in the way that Omiclon is a dream doll, but I've felt a Four Sisters-shaped gap in my crew for quite a while. Plus, errrrrr, I'm kinda sorta working on buying a Volks Lucas, despite the fact that I have heavy house-repair expenses coming up. As with the Four Sisters, there's a Lucas-shaped gap in the lineup, and what the hell, it's only money.
Let us now praise classic BJDs.
While I'm mulling over my changing tastes in head/body proportions, is anyone so madly in love with Henry, my Souldoll Jin Woo, that you'd like to give him a home? He's a handsome guy, still strung so tightly that he squeaks. I would send him with his default light-blond Souldoll wig, the mane of Classic Majesty hair he's been wearing here, and a pair of 13mm Masterpiece Teakwood eyes. (Sorry, I'm keeping the Mystic Antique C eyes, because Atsumori wants them.) $600 shipped within the US, $580 plus half the exact cost of shipping to other countries, how's that? (I paid $648.50 for him, including shipping.)
Email me if you're interested--sedens81 AT hotmail DOT com. I'm not going to be in agony if I don't sell him, but I can tell that he's never going to get the playtime around here that he deserves. Like the 60cm Narin of fond memory, Jin Woo was an experiment well worth making, but that's as far as he goes.
Which leads me to a final observation for this morning: BJDs that I buy for myself right around the holidays have a poor track record. I'm one for three so far: Kit the Mui isn't going anywhere, but bye-bye Narin and bye-bye Jin Woo. Note to self.
