Talis is home!

May 22nd, 2008 (11:20 pm)

current mood: drained

My Jing arrived safe and sound and in our regular mail, and USPS still doesn't see the package number on their site. The Malaysia track and trace was pretty unhelpful, too.

Oh well, he's here and that's all that matters! I love him! He is so cute! He's sitting next to me right now, being pouty and charming. For those who don't know what a Jing is, he's one of the Dollzone BB tinies, about the size of a Yo-SD and can wear most of their clothing. He can also sit in that knees in, feet pointed out position, whatever it's called.

In fact, an outfit I purchased two years ago when I didn't know much about dolls (what's a yo-sd? what's a petite ai? what's a bambicrony?) and only had Shuichi at the time, fits him perfectly. I got it thinking it would fit talon_sage's Imp (now I know better - all tinies are NOT created equal!) but found out later it was much too large. SERIOUSLY too large! When I got Hatori and tried it on him, it was too large in the top and too small in the pants. So it went into the drawer to sit for a while. It's like it's fate - the browns in it match his hair and the dark tones work well with his colouring.

It's a Japanese work set, with short pants and a short kimono-style top with a side tie. I know the outfit has to have a name but I don't have it at the moment.

The one official Yo outfit I have for him is a little tight in the knee britches around his knees and the coat sleeves are not wide enough at the cuffs but I think I can work around both.

I have a bittenbeforebjd sweatshirt and short pants, a punk hoodie and plaid shorts from Nightfall, two sets of clothing (jeans/shirt/hat and Asian-inspired sets) from snowkaguya out on eBay, a monkey shirt from eBay, some DZ clothes coming from Featherfall, and a few other pieces. I've been collecting for this little boy for two years, knowing I would eventually get something Yo-SD-sized.

A Volks rant: I just wish the Kuuta I've been eyeing at different sales threads wasn't marked up so much. When I know the complete doll with clothes cost about $350US (the price is posted on the Volks site!), I find it disqusting people are trying to sell the doll for $450-$475 and the clothes for $80-$100 extra. Greedy shits.

Well, back to the latest brat, my first true child doll! That's right, he's supposed to be a child. The biggest tiny I have is the youngest! *laughs*

The Jing told me his name almost a year ago - Talis. He's a usagi youkai child and his dad Kane (who hasn't told me what kind of youkai he is yet) and two half-brothers (Nasake the kitsune and Chikara the neko youkai) haven't been introduced yet. I expect some fur to fly. Talis is a little spit-fire.

He did tell me to change his eyes to a golden brown and luckily I had a pair that fit him. Believe it or not, they're Shuichi's default hazel acrylics. It gives him a nice warm look to him with that lovely reddish-brown wig.

Had a little incident tonight - I dyed my hair and while I thought I was keeping the post-wash drips under control and my hands clean, Talis got some red on his body. No, let me re-phrase that - it got ALL over him, dotting him here and there and in secret cracks and joints - ugh! So I washed my hands AGAIN and started attacking him with a Mr. Clean sponge before the colour set. It was ALL over the poor boy! Maybe I should have done a body blush experiment with hair dye residue.

No, no photos yet. They're taken but not moved to the laptop, let alone pushed over to the PC for Photoshopping. I hope to get both these and Lani's out this long weekend. We have to go to a 50 wedding anniversary celebration (which is stupid - the guy fucked around in front of our aunt for years) but only plan on staying for an hour or so and then bug out. I keep hoping my flare would get worse so I have a legit reason not to go.

Yuck - it's late and I have finally been getting to bed early this week. Can't break the tradition!

I'm glad he's home -- I know you've been waiting for him for ages and ages.

Heh heh heh - animated - chibi Eiri

Yep, it's true. As soon as DZ put the BBs out, I said, I want a Jing that looks like the default photo.

And I got him! Yay!

Clueless but Cute - Shindo

Yes, Kane gets around.

Talis came with a headband with two bunny-type 'ears' hanging on either side so he has something rabbit-like at the moment.

But I agree, he needs a bonafide bunny hat like Chikara and Shindo wear.

Two years? Isn't it amazing how time flies and how many dolls one can amass. It's been three years for me. LOL!

Well I look forward to seeing your photo of your newest young'en. Heh . . .

I shall be out of town this weekend so if you post them I will play catchup on MOnday.

PS - it's really bad with Volks dolls on the secondary market. The greedy so and so's. LOL! It's amazing the markupon Yo's alone. *laughs*

Speaking of which . . . I'm getting ready to do a post for sale at my LJ on a normal blank head Migidoll Ryu. I'm in a group order for two heads and can only get one. It's $140.00 if you are interested PM me.

chibi cuteness

Yes, I ordered Shuichi in late March 2006 and got him in less than two week's time, on April 4th. That was a real shocker. I was expecting at least a month-long wait.

I noticed the Volks outfit has been sold. I guess I should of snapped it up for Talis to wear. I think I'm going to have to get a Volks Yo outfit from Volks USA (they have some cute Halloween boy stuff) so I can get on the mailing list for the next announcements.

You tempt me with the Ryu head, but I really have no practical use for it. I have two floating heads for faceup practice already.
