The first Yo that really got my attention was the Kuuta. I am a little picky about the Yos I bring home. I really have to see them out of default mode to truly get my 'want' mode going.

Ayumu was the first to slay me, and it took me a while to bring him home, but the Cute is just irresistible!

How great that the neko got clothes too! They make a sweet pair - girl and her kitty!
Your little Volks crew of Littles is growing nicely! Congratulations!

Thanks! She's really sweet, which hides the true evil behind her. As a yuki-onna, she freezes people on a whim. She and Garnet will get along splendidly.

I think Volks did an excellent job with this fullset. I know the jinbei is really for the Megu but even Volks shows it on Komame. I have an unclaimed sleeveless white dress with drawn kitties on it I will probably put Komame in as a default so Hana can have the jinbei as PJs.

Since Volks is slowly making Yo versions of the Tokyo boys, the next Yo I want to hunt down (if he looks good) will be Shirou Tachibana. Originally I wanted to win the lottery for a friend but now, after seeing Isao, I want him for myself!

I had seen an Ayuma for sale at BJDC (every other year in Austin, TX) way back when and was tempted, but not by the price. He was probably a first edition, as I recall, he was a fullset. That was back before the recession, when people could get HIGH selling prices for rare fullset dolls.

It was the third edition that finally caught me hard. Then I decided I did not want him due to the lip colour. Then I decided I DID want an Ayuma and saw photos and a note that Kerbey Lane was selling one. Interestingly enough, Finn is a second edition. I thought I was purchasing a third edition from Kerbey Lane but he turned out being a second and a personal doll of one of the shop's workers. In the end, I found I preferred the second edition faceup over the third (I took photos of them next to each other when we visited the shop last December) and I am VERY happy with Finn.

He's FINALLY complete, with, in his opinion, the right colour hair and eyes. He fought me a lot over both. He came with a silver Volks wig and default brown eyes. I tried all sorts of brown, turquoise-green and green eyes in him and when he rejected them all, I found a glass pair in the drawer, dropped them in and he went hog-wild for boring basic blue glass. You may not have noticed it, but except for jeans, I do not allow my dolls to wear royal, navy, powder, baby or Federal blue. Turquoise is the closest they can get to blue. The only time that rule will be broken is if Dollmore ever makes a true royal blue shirt in Model Doll size for Eiri. It's a signature piece from the anime so he needs it.

I really wanted to get him in a fur wig since the only little boy in the group in fur is Nigel, but he liked the cut of the wig he came in, even though on a Yo it is a bit girly. I got him a Volks blond one and it looked good but he had looked really good in caramel fur. So I finally found the right Volks colour and that's what he's wearing in the photos above.

She's really BEAUTIFUL. STUNNING!!! How exciting to win this little treasure complete with a beautiful kimono, little friend, wig, and a wonderful face up. ^_________________^ Kudos girl!! I look forward to getting together with you this summer.

I bought my YoSD Kira on the secondary market . . . not a good idea in retrospect . . . but wanted one of the little four sisters. Mine did not come with her original box, and no goodies at all. Was desperate. LOL!! But now she's settled in. I've had her for two years.

Will post some photos of her at my LJ this week. ;)

Glomp! - Ki and Chi

She's really pretty, isn't she? Her wig is incredibly soft - one of those you want to pet and pet.

I do want to get her out of the kimono and test-drive her tastes with the "girls' box". Will she like more casual dresses or really frilly ones? Will she wear pants or shorts? How about teeshirts? Will she be a prima-donna like Garnet and fight over the frilliest dresses? I don't know yet, and she has an evil streak to her (due to being a yuki-onna) so she may tell me only kimono and not to even bother with anything else.

My two little boys did not come with their fullset clothes, which was disappointing, but understandable since I got them on the secondary market and for good prices. I think the Kuuta might have had the little black suit but I don't remember the box picture.

Plushie Love - Talis and Nigel

I haven't had much time to play with Hana yet, or any of the new dolls right now. Health issues take over a lot of my time so I am looking forward to a day off July 4 to rest and play with dolls.

The Crew grew a lot the first half of this year, which is not my usual pattern for getting dolls. They also grew the last month or so of last year, partly because JunkySpot had good deals on dolls I had been watching for a while.

I have a Hujoo Yomi fullset coming in from JS the end of this week.

The only other outstanding dolls are two Mushroom Peddler dolls - another Flicker and a Singe, both blank.

I want to get one of the blue ABS Hujoos but I don't know which sculpt/gender yet. Probably a girl and I have plans to make her some kind of water creature and paint waves all over her.
