I never mentioned this in my other couple of posts, but I am physically not very well, so on the days I don't take sleeping pills and pain killers I cannot go to sleep sometimes, because stuff like antibiotic make me churn etc. I dont mention it because I'm trying not to mention non-doll related stuff (which I did a lot in older entries :/) Also its not a very serious thing for me, but it has a little to do with this entry. So, on the 19th, I woke up late.
I rolled to my right, and a pair of eyes were blinking at me. Our bed is a double loft bed, so all I could see was above Ray's nose bridge. "You got a package from Japan," he said. I screwed my eyes tight and couldn't prevent my large dopey smile from forming. "You're so silly," he said.
I clambered down the ladder and went to look at the size of the box to make sure it was her, because I don't want to be disappointed that its some figure. Sure enough, the box is large to fit an SD. I went to hug the box. Ray asked if I was going to open it. he was ready, standing there with a pair of scissors in his hands. I told him not yet, because I want to savor it, lol. Probably because I thought I would never get her so soon when I missed the lottery.
Of course I wanted to take her out asap after that, but because of my lack of energy I did housework first. Ray splurged a lot more for me recently to keep my mind off the pain, I would totally be a sucky person to just do what I want.
Long story short, Yu was unboxed later that night. But I wished I had done it the next day. My left arm was getting tired, I was afraid of dropping her, or any of my dolls, and the camera. Wearing the wrist support made handling them difficult enough,
at one point I took it off. I had a couple of accidents that night, of course i feel rargh but it couldn't be helped. Yu fell once, and slipped out of my hands once. no serious injury, minor minor minor scuff near her chin. i was annoyed with myself, but then that's what makes her mine, right? we all left marks on our dolls.
I was surprised when I unwrapped the bubble wrap she was completely covered with plastic. And they no longer offer the zipped pillow. Only 3 of my Volks dolls came with the zipped pillow, two of them Volks direct, my Colette (SD16 Daria) and the sold Megu, which I get to keep the pillow because the buyer didnt want it or her box. The other doll that came with the zipped pillows is My SDGr Jun which I got from toel-uru through figure.fm.
And we're careening off the doll topic! Anyway, I bought this black wig because I was in love with Chiaki Kurihara from Bodacious Space Pirates. I planned to get a Saber Alter 2nd and made her into Chiaki. toel-uru on figure.fm was selling a lot of dolls, i have set my eyes on the SDGr Jun Tachibana & YoSD Jun Tachibana set and also a Saber Alter 2nd including all her extra accessories. But as soon as I get the two Juns and checked back, that Saber is gone. After awhile I forgot about my previous plans, and as I said in a post or two before, re-vamp my DD wishlist.
And speaking of Mouretsu, I just have to listen to this song~
I asked him what should we name Yu. "How about, Dearie?" I rolled my eyes lol its what Rumpelstilskin say a lot in Once Upon a time show. He also didn't like the short blond wig on Yu. Me neither, just wanted to see what color palate suits her best :3
