Wednesday's Child

May 31st, 2008

A new arrival…I've been waiting for this girl to arrive for quite a long time now. I was so excited when I got the notice that she had been shipped.

When the postman came on Wednesday, Alice and Molly were so excited. Their long-lost friend had finally arrived. I had no problem getting them to help me open the box.

All the little things that were stuffed in her box.

I get such a kick out of Engrish. The inside of the pamphlet includes instructions on how to restring your doll. I'm sure it will be very helpful in the future.

Just to prove she's all official-like. ;)

An extra stringing elastic and hands were also included. I think these used to be the old-style hands, but I'm not sure. These have dimples on the backs of the hands though whereas the ones my doll is currently wearing don't.

I take a little break in the box-opening to take a picture of Alice showing me her belly. Isn't it cute?

The wee ones trying to help me unpack the box. At this point, I think they just wanted me to hurry up and get their friend out.

Okay…time to tell the truth. This isn't actually my first time opening this box. I did a quick box opening before I started taking pictures because I wanted to make sure the doll was okay. You see, I'd had a horrible dream the night before she arrived that, when I opened her box, her skin was all blotchy. Luckily, the dream proved false and she was just as pretty as I had hoped she would be (as you'll soon see).

Also, while I had her out, I fixed her eyes (she had that deer-in-headlights look that so many new dolls seem to have) and changed out the factory putty that was holding her eyes in (I've heard so horror stories lately about what putty can do to acrylic eyes and the resin "skin" of dolls).

Finally, I allow the wee ones to unwrap their friend.

Yay! Unfortunately, I have yet to think of a name for her. So, she's still know as Lati Green Girl around here. Poor thing. :(

Such a pretty little face. I even think she looks cute bald (although I think she looks even better with hair).

All dressed up in her special outfit. I can't get over how well it's made–very high quality. I'm super impressed. Her wig is gorgeous too–shiny, soft, and no flyaways.

So, here's how the story goes…

Once upon a time, there lived a little girl who spent her days lost in fantasy. She dreamed of faraway places and had many adventures with imaginary animals that she met along the way.

Then, one day, her imaginary friends came to life… :)

Finally…the gruesome threesome is all together!

    I think she looks better with the coat, without the hair ribbons.

    The dynamic trio! Yay! >p<

    :D That's okay, Cassie. There's something about cute things that makes everyone a bit cheesy, I think. I know I get that way.
