On to the fitting and picture taking!
WANNABE A PIN UP GIRL!
WHO NEEDS HAIR!
VOLKS D’ ANIME
WHERE’S MY HAIR?
This is a Volks doll from Japan, Barbie sized. She has 14 points of articulation, discolored hands (I’ve broken one thumb!) I bought her in an “Otaku!” event, nude with wig and 1 earing. I don’t really dig her facepaint, so she’s one of my candidate for a face-up, but she did turn out cute!
The first batch have already chosen what they want so, on to the next batch.
BARBIE: I LOVE THIS!
MS DAVID: THIS IS IT!
TERESA: OH! COWBOY HAT!
SPANISH GIRL: BARB GOT THE PEACH SANDALS! OH NO!
JUNE: I TOLD YOU THESE WILL FIT! THESE BOOTS ARE MADE FOR WALKIN’…THAT’S JUST WHAT THEY DO..LALALA
VOLKS: ONE OF THESE DAYS THESE BOOTS ARE GONNA WALK ALL OVER…THEM! THANKS FOR SAVING IT FOR ME.
MS. DISNEY: FINALLY, I GET TO PICK MY TYPE OF SHOES.
SPANISH GIRL: NOT ANOTHER BLUE ONE, SO PLAIN.
THERESA: I REQUESTED FOR MY SIZE DO YOU HAVE IT?

2D: LET’S SEE, WELL, DELIVERIES WILL BE NEXT WEEK.

MULAN: BUT ME LIKE IT!

MS DISNEY: HAVE YOU HEARD? FREE PICTURE TAKING UPON FITTING.
SUMMER: YOU MEAN UPON PAYING WHEN YOU PUT ON YOUR LOOT…I MEAN ITEMS.

TO BE CONTINUED…
Still posting about last Holiday scenes!
Last December I have let some of my dollies out to shop for some decent clothes since they’ve been nude for quite some time in my closet. Some didn’t came along, they want their own exposure. So the shopaholics trooped to the nearest Thrift Store.
“ATTENTION LADIES, you shall be allowed inside by batch, please fall in line”
VOLKS (volks japan): Do you think this store have clothes my size?
JUNE (juku couture): Of course! They sell a wide range of stuff here.
TAURUS (zodiac girlz doll): June is right, don’t worry, don’t be shy!
AURORA: Who is that taking up shots?! We’re still nude…hello!
MULAN: Ssshhh…that’s 2D! She owns this store, she adopted us!
SUMMER: Duh? Still sleeping? Have u forgotten she is our nanny?
Ok, so much for the chit-chat, this post is to be continued as I am getting sleepy from a days work….
For quite some time since I saw a BJD (Ball Jointed Doll), I just kept on wishing for one, a doll that has many points of articulation, fully poseable. I do not have an e-bay account nor a credit card, I am a cash strapped collector…;-D
Anyway I tried looking for an alternative, and I found out about Obitsu and the smaller cheap version of Volks Doll. They are still expensive for me, so maybe it is not yet time for me to have one. Then a friend suggested that I should try visiting those trade fairs and toy collectible exhibits which are being held yearly in one of the well known shopping malls here in the Philippines. I could only think of one, the TOYCON. So to make it short, I found this Volks Doll and bought her for Php750.00 (that’s just about $17.00) my sister thinks I’m crazy! Actually I bought 2, and she gave me a big WHAAATT!!!!
Here she is..
This is Anina one of my Volks Doll (fully poseable and anatomically correct)
Anina…just passing time
