Lotsa pictures! Picture-fu! Picspam!
Sasha Blaze
fairemma is so right: Unidoll Limiteds are fantastically photogenic. Even though I'm unthrilled with the amount of yellowing on her face and hands (not what you might call described by the seller), Glencora--this is Glencora, and she is indeed a UH-13--takes quite a nice picture. If I do say so myself.

By the way, the crazy wig is from Cristy Stone (Xtreme Dolls), the top is by 1olly, and the necklace is by the_impassive. I know cool peoples.

This doll's profile is so lovely.

And yes, a Tsukasa Konoe sneaked in here while no one was looking . . . it's raining Tsukasas on the flist, huh? This is Norimasa, Nori to our friends, and he's aggravatingly elusive to the camera (either camera, both cameras). Rest assured that he's getting plenty of attention behind the camera! I feel the same way about him that I do about Flynn: it's hard to think of him as a virtually-unattainable dream doll, because it seems so natural to have him here. Some kind of special resin additive, methinks.

Okaru, being inclined to think highly of her importance to the universe, says PAY ATTENTION TO MEEEEEEEE! (Note fabulous samfu suit by aznbutterflies.)

Trouble managed to miss out on a real introduction, thanks to the laptop-repair debacle, but here he is. No flash! No weird misshapen wig! No ill-chosen Purple Nebula eyes!

Ah, that classic Lucas expression of resigned disgust. He's taken over my favorite pair of Silver eyes, he has a new wig, I bought him the outfit even though I knew it wouldn't suit anybody else . . . what does he WANT?

. . . oh. A new faceup, you say? Well, there's something to that. ;-)

Finally, another doll I haven't quite pinned down with the camera, though it's fun to try: Kikuno, my precious ShinyDoll Akali. (Lisa, this is the sundress from that eBay seller.)

Your new unidoll girl is lovely. I think the Uni resin might be super prone to yellowing, because mine looks a tiny bit yellow even though he's never been in direct light and is only a few months old ... hmmm (don't have enough doll experience to be sure though). And I love Nori. His personality just shines through!

French resin *is* super (super, super!) prone to yellowing--I knew this from having owned a Narin 60 for a while--and there was a time when I swore I would never buy another French-resin doll. But this was such a good price, and I had the money in hand, and . . . yeah. I would have bought her, I'm sure, even if I had known about the face/hands yellowing (and the stripe at the top of her neck), but on the whole I wish it hadn't been quite such a surprise when I opened the box. *sigh*

I'm thinking Nori has a goofy streak--we'll see what happens as I get to know him better!

And I got your PM--I'm going to put pureskin and Aoi-Tuki next to each other this afternoon, and see what the results are. I'm usually horrible at taking resin-match photos, so if I can't get an accurate one, I may fall back on verbal description. But stay tuned!

ooo hurrah for new dolly spam! finally! jeez!!!!!

your unidoll is lovely. and to be able to pull off that wig is a feat in itself - I love it, it's great!


I knooooooooowwww . . . when that wig came I had a moment of OMFGWHATHAVEIBOUGHT???? But it's interesting in a costumey way on Neechan, and I actually think it almost looks like real hair on Glencora here.

Now, if I just managed to get those Val wigs in my third order . . . *insert ninja icon*

awwww, UH-13! Do you know what number she is? (I sold one a while ago).
Also, I think she had a yellow-orange cast to her from day one. So it may just be their coloring.
I love the shinydoll! So unique and beautiful!! Are they rare? Hard to get?
One more question (promise!) Does aznbutterfly still take commisions? How does one get a hold of him? :) :)

Oooo, I love questions! Especially ones I know how to answer! ;-)

I just checked the inside of her headcap (I didn't find any paperwork in the box), and it says "UH-13 (xx)". Does that mean she's number twenty?

I really like the soft golden glow of the base resin color, but this poor girl has a very definite tan line at the top of her neck and in the middle of her upper arms. I'm still less than overjoyed with the seller, but these are the perils of buying secondhand French resin dolls.

And ShinyDolls are sort of rare, but not because they're hard to get--ordering them is as simple as can be. They just don't match mainstream BJD taste, so those of us who like them (and fairemma is the one who hooked me in) are relatively isolated. Shin-san, the sculptor, is a wonderful, smart, quirky man, an engineer by trade; it's great fun to correspond with him by e-mail, and he loves these dolls as much as we do. Here's the website: http://homepage3.nifty.com/doi-midori/ShinyDoll/index.html

As for Devon (aznbutterflies, I don't know whether he's sewing these days or not. Sometimes he'll list things on eBay, but I haven't seen him there in quite a while. He has an LJ, so you could post there, or PM him on DoA (his username on DoA is aznbutterfly, singular).

You are so sweet to answer all of my questions! :)
Could be 20!! I had #13, but I found the number on her card. The seller should have sent you the card :( and oh no! If the resin color is uneven its definitely yellowed!

Thank you for the info on shinydoll! The bodies are AMAZING too! So many cute heads to choose! and OMG! I just saw fairemma's girls - AMAZING! (If you remember I ♥ Minawa's saiki too!)

I'll have to PM Devon, I should have bought from him at the Dollectable convention last year, but I totally ran out of money. Now I am punching myself!


Oooooo! New pretties! They are all faboo.

I love your Lucas. Someday I will get my mitts (and airbrush) on one of my own. I just love his little face. And yay for Tsukasa too!

I'm kinda surprised by how much I love him, myself! That Lucas face is, like, the essence of boy BJD, isn't it? I'm in a serious "must go back and get the classics I missed the first time around" mode . . .

How many ways can I say (or spell) perfection? These are simply wonderful pictures, and I'm so happy to see them all revealed. You know my love for every last one of these glories, but I would like to say, Kikuno blows me away. The sundress seems to have been made for her (and I seem to have lost the name of that seller). You infuse all your dolls with a presence, but Kikuno ... she's very special. Perhaps, in part, that's due to how she came to be in your life. ;)

But but where's my Tsukasa? Seems I'm never in the right place at the right time.

Your Kikuno is marvelous.

I adore Nori......tell him not to be so shy.

LOOOOOOOOOOOOOVE!!!! (Even cranky Kumiho has to give some love because of all the pretty in this post!)

-- A :D

Your collection of dolls is always so unique and lovely to me. I love the way you customize them and put them together. And COLOR!! Your sense of color is impeccable!! ^_________^
