Phia is home!

…and to be quite honest, she’s been home for a while. (Which you sort of may have suspected, if you follow my Instagram.)

3rd of March Phia finally made it through customs and was hand delivered here in the evening. I waited for her all day and didn’t even pee for 8 hours because I was so scared I’d miss the postlady. u_u I was so happy with her from the moment I opened the box, and the love hasn’t diminished even though she insists on taking 5-10 minutes of me swearing while I attempt to put on her wig, before she’ll actually allow it to sit right.

So now that she’s been seen in public, she’s waiting to get her faceup. This all hinges on me soon hopefully feeling energetic enough to fill out forms and ship her head out into the big, scary world, because we’ve already found a pretty wonderful faceup artist.

That tan Vanilla..?

Faithful readers (and to be quite honest everybody else as well) might remember how buying a tan PukiFee Vanilla was at the top of my to-do list for 2015? Yeah, forget about that. Oops.

Since Fairyland is not currently open for purchase of tan PukiFees, I was resigned to wait it out until the next event happened. But stupid people do stupid things, and I looked at Luts’s website. And saw Tiny Delf Hansel again, whom I’d liked for another character of mine. A character who quite adamantly told me that she was to be shelled in a 1/6 doll instead – she is the one who will be shelled in the LittleFee Halloween event faceplate. But Hansel is adorable with her cute little smile, I’d really liked her already back then, and I soon started blabbering about whether I should go with her instead for Phia. I annoyed my friends, everybody in the Tiny Delf thread on DoA, random people on Tumblr, and even my cat (sorry everyone). I googled and googled until there was nothing left to google about Tiny Delfs. And then I struggled for some time, going back and forth, until I wasn’t even able to answer what doll I’d choose if I could have either of them right now.

Tonight I finally caved and pushed the buy button – obviously with careful enabling from a certain someone, whose famous words were probably the last straw: You can always sell her if it doesn’t pan out. Well, truth is I probably won’t be able to because of the almost hilariously awful BJD second hand market, but fingers crossed I won’t have to. Fingers crossed that once she’s in my hands I can’t even remember that PukiFees have better posing or that I had carefully laid out plans which happened to go kaboom. Fingers crossed that I don’t regret this.

Phew. Let’s end this on a high note:

Phia is coming home!
