Fairyland LittleFee Leah. My first BJD doll. For a very long time I didn’t want to buy a BJD doll – I simply didn’t like them… Well, I must admit I still don’t like the vast majority of these dolls (those that look sinister, spoilt or languishing, and those that look like anime characters). Then I realized that I quite liked looking at children BJD dolls. At first I was thinking of buying Nami from Iplehouse, then I started to doubt: I had a chance to hold her in my hands and she wasn’t strung well, there were holes in her joints when they were bent too much, and most importantly the doll wasn’t as flexible as I hoped it would be.
I was told by a friend of mine that the best BJD bodies are those made by Fairyland. The bodies are beautifully sculptured, they don’t have any holes in joints and are highly poseable… Again, I looked at them for a long time… I didn’t really want LittleFee Ante – the most popular choice. I wanted something special… And then I suddenly saw this beauty, and the world turned upside down. I saw BJD dolls in a completely new light:
And I ordered her. I had to wait for a month – not too long in BJD terms (I ordered her on 8 December, she was shipped on 10 January and arrived to me on 12 January).
The doll has exceeded my expectations!! It was love at first sight. I prepared quite well for her arrival: I bought her new glass eyes and a pair of shoes (I haven’t changed her eyes yet, but they are identical to those on the photo from Flickr), and the girl arrived with a wig, a pair of panties and spare hands. Unfortunately I still haven’t finished her outfit – it is hard to make it without the doll in question. For the moment I have to show her as she is, but soon she will be very different!! The new outfit for her is almost ready!
She has an amazing body, I have never held anything like that before (and I had held a few BJD dolls). She is so flexible! AND SHE CAN STAND ON ONE LEG!!! This was something I was really dreaming of. Most BJD dolls can’t do this trick (although they are supposed to be able to!). But mine can! My dream has come true! I will show this when she is fully dressed.. I simply can’t have enough of her. She is gorgeous!!
So, here she is, my Lea (the eyes are the default ones she arrived with)…
