Teaser picture of inbound . . . hmmm, does this look like a boy or a girl to you?
The seller is vividlabo; the auction photos are watermarked "Doll Mate" and this head is called Hyun (definitely a Korean name, not a Japanese one). Why does "vividlabo" ring a bell? Isn't that either HeavyBomb or Rolling Pumpkin, or am I nuts? There's a powerful whiff of early Custom House about this head to me--that sharp little chin, that slightly bulgy nose, and something I can't quite put into words about the proportions of the face.
In other news, I have an exciting trade in progress for the Jin Woo, and the Megu head is on her way to Hong Kong for a pretty, soft new faceup. Yay for spring!
Back to grading my samurai class's midterm papers. I am so proud of the way this class is stepping up to the unusual material--they're doing much better work than my British Novel students. I'm actually looking forward to grading papers, for a change . . .
