I've been a naughty girl, again!

I have been so good at not ordering any dolls lately, but a doll got the better of me this morning. After looking at the wonderful Dollmore Narsha's on Flickr, I couldn't contain myself any longer and ordered a basic Zihu. I really love her little pinched nose.

Not being fond of black lines on the lips, I chose to order her blank. Not sure if I will do her face up or if I will ask someone else to do it for me.

Haven't chosen a name for her yet either, but she will probably tell me when she arrives. :)

 I also ordered a few accessory items like eyes, some candy, a Tikan Kimono Set (but not for her); white shoes and socks, as well as a lovely carrot coloured curly wig.

  1. Yay, congrats! :D I don't really know a lot of Narshas, but they do look very cute ^^
    I look forward to seeing pictures of her from you :3

    1. Thank you Nikki. I do have plans for her to be something quite different from how she looks in this photo, that was my reasoning when I purchased the red curly wig. :) If you get a chance take a look at my favourites on my Flickr, there are some stunners there.

  2. Oh my gosh! I am so excited for you. Zihu is a beautiful doll. It's also a sculpt made by my favourite bjd artist (MyDolling). If I won lotto, I would be buying a ton of her dolls.

    Zihu was a sculpt I considered for a time to be the younger version of my Hee-ah as I thought she looked a bit like her.

    I can't wait to see what you end up doing with her. Knowing the world your dolls live in, I bet she'll be a gorgeously magical character.

    Big congratulations to you!

    1. Thank you Alasse. I really should learn not to look at dolls on Flickr. :) It's so difficult not to fall for a doll when you see so many pretty custom face ups on a single sculpt.

      Yes, I can see how she would go well with your Hee-ah. She'd go well with my Ah-ra too, but I am planning a non Asian look for her. I don't know that she'll be a magical character either. I'm hoping she will look like the beautiful redhead I see in my mind.

  3. Congrats on ordering her!!!
    I hope she arrives soon! I agree with you, I don't like the black lines on the mouth either. I'm sure you will do a great faceup!

    1. Hi Musume,
      I don't know what Dollmore delivery times are like as I have never ordered dolls from them before. I just wish the weather would improve here, so I could get started on all the other face ups that are waiting to be done...the list is long. :)

    1. Thanks Lily,
      She will be a red haired girl for sure, but not at all like my Daisy and Maisie, more mature and probably leaning towards an elegant Bohemian style (I think).

    1. I know Dollmore are usually pretty quick Alejandra, but they have quoted me 30-40 working days, so I will have to wait and see.
      Now why am I not surprised, we seem to like many of the same dolls, don't we? :)

    1. Hi Niina,
      I haven't ordered any dolls from Dollmore before, so I am looking forward to seeing what Narsha's are like. She will be similar in size to my IpleHouse KIDs, which means she can wear their clothes too.
      You must post pics of your two when you get time, I'd love to see them. :)

    1. Thank you Carolyn. The YD white Lilith is absolutely gorgeous, I couldn't see on DM, but does she have long elf ears? I will check Torrie out later today too. :)
