My first BJD, although the second one I ordered (Jace was ordered two weeks before the Hound), arrived from Iplehouse on Monday. To say I was excited is putting it lightly. The mail lady (who I'm now on a first name basis with since she's delivered so many EMS packages to me) said to me on Monday when I opened the door to her knock, "Is this him?" I clapped my hands and squeed, too excited to think that I might be embarrassing myself. She said, "When I saw the box in my truck this morning, I thought it might be your doll."

I promised I'd let her see him next time she delivered something. I knew the poor boy would be naked in the box so I decided I'd allow him to preserve some dignity and let him don his clothes and wig before he was called upon to meet people. Plus, I wanted to savor the moment of opening the package. He's my first ball-joint doll after all. I've waited a long time for this.

And now the pictures. I used two cameras while taking these as our new camera only had a 50mm macro lens at the time (the other lens arrived the next day), so I had to use our old camera as well. Much like the archaeologist I was trained to be, I chronicled the whole box-opening experience in almost painful minutia. *_* Don't worry, I spared you most of the pics.

My cat Tristan tries to help the mummy off with his wrappings.

My kitty Sora also wanted to see what was going on.

    Oh, it's the first time I see one of these unwrapped. Interesting… I had no idea they were traveling on a pillow, inside what looks like an elongated bowling bag to me. He looks so vulnerable too, right out of the box 😀

    Kara said: Hi, Dektora! Thanks for stopping by. 🙂 Not all dolls arrive as Ethyn did. Dominik arrived in a box where he was snuggled into foam. I actually like that way best as it seems the most secure. And, he does look vulnerable, doesn't he? Kind of lost and uncertain. To me, he doesn't even really look like the doll he is now.
