HOLY COW. I have NEVER had a doll arrive to me so fast. I got a shipping notice for Crobidoll Tori on I think the 21st, but couldn't track it yet as the package didn't show actually being picked up until the 22nd. I checked the tracking number yesterday and it had a flight number but showed nothing in regards to it reaching US or ANYTHING. No info at all, like it was in limbo in flight.
Osaka sent me a text today that
he had arrived. I initially was confused, since she had also been
expecting a package but no it was in fact from Crobidoll.
asked on their Q&A board on the 19th if they knew when he might ship
(knowing that I could still have a week or two to wait) and they
this is BJD CROBI :D

BJD CROBI :D"
Not quite what I was expecting, but this was my first transaction with them, so I don't really know what I was expecting.
yeah that was a pleasant surprise. I got home and Osaka was out with
her son, so I had complete quiet to open him up at my leisure. I took
First I got Simon Oliver out to be there to greet his brother.
Some kind of facial tissue? The photos are cute.
Some beautiful postcards of some of their other dolls.
A Christmas Card.
A REALLY cute Crobidoll BJD calender with gorgeous photos on one side, and the month on the other.
the box that black booklet was a basic owner's manual with a stringing
guide, and advice for first time owners of BJD. This particular image
made me giggle pretty hard.
My FIRST Certificate of Authenticity under this legal name.
I was surprised, I didn't realize the body wasn't gendered!
Tiny little hands!
And faceup! It's so perfect.
Little standy man, steady as a rock.
And with his brother in his wig.
this point I realized the clothing wasn't going to work for him
long-term. He's a little beanpole and the waistband is comically large.
His intended eyes.
After some wigstop and re-dressed.
One with Lorelei and Simon, both of his half-siblings.
One of Simon and Lorelei.
And just Owen, all put together and perfect.
I need to figure out exactly what sort of clothes I need to make for
him. The TTYA stuff will do for the moment but it won't work long-term.
