I am STILL waiting on my Gyoha head! People have been listing them on DoA for a month already!
ANYWAY, my creature thing arrived at the Taobao agent and I received my pictures. Everything looked okay, so I paid for shipping. Once they ship my resin awesomeness, it should be here in about a week or so.
So far, my Taobao agent experience seems to be going well! I will probably use Taobaotrends again in the future. I like that they charge one flat fee instead of several and they also offer more shipping methods than Taobaoring.
*shuffles off grumbling about Gyoha*
Switch released a new head called Gyoha DIVINE. However, I was too late to buy it during the ordering period. I was disappointed, but went along my way. A few days later, DOLK announced that are taking pre-orders for the head! I told myself this was another sign and purchased a tusk-toothed head from the DOLKUS website!
My Dollshe Rythmos and female hip hands arrived a long while ago! I did a box opening video, just have not uploaded it. I got lazy and then forgot about it. Heh. Anyway....
My Serenade Doll arrived not too long ago! She is SO lovely!! The box opening video took me TWO days to upload to Youtube. I need to learn how to optimize and keep my videos short.
As you may know, I ordered my Soom Amber and purchased some Coquina parts from the Den of Angels marketplace. I planned on selling the Epidia body and using a Resinsoul body instead, since my old Soom legs would not fit the new bodies.
My Resinsoul group order was a success and the goal of $800 was reached! The participants and I managed to purchase $926 worth! The order was submitted and paid for, now we just have to wait. :/
I ordered the following:
I will be doing a box opening video as usual, but not all the dolls are mine. There will be a newly released deertaur, Winter, in this order! There will also be a green Mi, a pair of male jointed hands, and a Yao.
I still haven't gotten any updates on my other orders, but I must be patient.
I ordered my Amber from the free choice event. Here are the details:
Free Choice Super Gem Female (Tawny)
· Head Type = Amber - Pure Spirit
· Body Type = Epidia - Queen of Waterfalls
· Body Option = Extra Body Type
I was really excited about this event at first, then my image for this doll began to crumble. At first, I chose the cheapest body that was possible, the Ignim body. I was still excited at this point, even though the price was more than I thought it would be. Then come to find out, Soom had changed their bodies in 2012 and the new bodies were the bodies included in the event. My Coquina parts are from 2010, which fit the old bodies. Shit.
So I had to think about this for a minute. I have been looking for an Amber for awhile, and two that were reasonably priced had slipped through my fingers. The Amber's on the market board were all cream white and over $900.00.
I wanted Coquina hooves instead of Amber's original ones because of reasons mentioned in a previous video. This is a combo for disaster, for sure. Amber was mostly offered in cream white, save for the rare free choice events and those are hard to find. Coquina was offered in normal and bronze, except for the rare free choice events. I have seen ONE paper white Coquina. Bronze and cream white don't match AT ALL and was trying to avoid heavy blushing, because it chips easily...especially on the joints. I have even though about blushing a cream white fade to bronze via blushing.
The price was going to be about the same no matter what route I took. In any case, I decided to cancel my previous order with the Ignim body and re-order with an Epidia body, which had a similar leg structure to Coquina's yami legs. There is still the issue with the knees, but I am hoping the lower parts will fit a little better than the knee parts would. I really DON'T want to mod such an expensive body.
Another choice I am seriously considering is buying a Resinsoul 68cm body to put all my parts on. I wouldn't mind modding the knees on a cheaper body. If I go this route, I will be selling the Epidia body, including all her fantasy parts.
I am currently looking for pictures to see if the Coquina knee ball-joint part will fit inside the socket of a Resinsoul knee. I hope to find out before June 5th when I place the Resinsoul GO order.
On another note: MY IMMORTALITY OF SOUL ORDER HAS SHIPPED!!!
So I have been looking at some BJDs from Immortality of Soul for a little bit. I added a head or two to my cart, but couldn't make myself purchase them. Then, I shit you not, the VERY next day they announced they are having there 10th anniversary sale! Everything is 40%-50% off! It was meant to be, right?
I really wanted Ada when they first released her (as well as Alberta), but you had to order a certain dollar amount of items to get her. I couldn't buy anything at the time, so I just stared at the pictures longingly until I got over her.
Then, they re-released her! And this time you could buy her outright! I didn't hesitate this time and gobbled her up. I can wait until she gets here. I also ordered her extra belly part so she can walk on just two legs if she wants too. The usual wait time is three months.
