I was agonizing over Fairyland MiniFee dolls for over a year. I always admired how beautifully she could pose, but was reluctant to buy yet another BJD. I think now that I simply couldn’t find the right one for me! First, I liked Chloe, then Shushu, then Lishe, then Chloe again… until I saw Mirwen with a gorgeous custom face-up! And that decided it. I ordered my Mirwen just before Christmas. And finally she has arrived!!
She is very very pretty!! Even without a face-up (I know, without it and with such huge eyes she looks rather like an alien!). My only complaint is the eyes that Fairyland gave her. Well, I do appreciate that everyone gets random eyes, but so far I’ve been pretty lucky with those. But these eyes…. Oh, well, they will go straight to the bin, as I have no use for them. Apart from the awful mustard colour, they are also way too large. I have temporarily replaced them with the spare 14 mm green glass eyes that I had. They are also too large, but will do until her proper eyes arrive. She will be going to my friend Ariadne for a face-up tomorrow.
And my Mirwen has passed the most important test for a BJD – yes, she can stand on one leg!!!
