What can I say? Their cookies have chocolate chips! XD

No, but really, what I mean with that is that I put a MSD on layaway! I was thinking on friday (while doing a tedious design job involving a map) that even if Dia is my favorite sculpt in the whole world and He’s not MSD, that doesn’t mean that my crew cannot be MSD. So I reached a fast conclusion that I could try and sell all my SDs except for Lucas, and replace the ones in my story with MSDs. I should get a MSD Lucas if I want him in photos with the rest of the dolls, but other than that, I could just stick to mainly MSDs and YoSDs.

So that same day after I finished my work I started looking MSD sculpts. You know, just for future reference. And then I saw Souldoll Junia was for sale up to this weekend, and I love that release so much that after a few hours of thinking about it, doing some calculations (I wasn’t supposed to buy a doll yet, i wanted to keep saving a lil longer), I put her on a 6 month layaway.

I’m very excited about it, but there’s some moments I start thinking “OH MY GOD WHAT THE HELL DID I DO?!?!?!?!”, so I’m not sure how this will end XD. I’m excited to finally have an adult in my fantasy crew (fantasy tinies were supposed to be a little amount between many adults ha!! XD), but I’m also scared that I have never really bonded with any girl doll except for tinies. And sure, I love my Supia Rosy, but you all can see how little attention She gets. Mainly because of the size.

Every time I take a big doll out for photos all I can think is “if they only were smaller…” so I think I’m doing the right thing here. But I also think I was super impulsive in getting Junia… She reminds me a bit to SOOM sweet witch in her elf form and a bit to SOOM Afi/Ai in the animal form. Both dolls from my wishlist (though i gave up on sweet witch because of the size).

In the end the main selling point for me was that I’ve regretted missing out on dolls more than I regret buying one.

If I sell my SOOM Onyx or Supia Rosy soon, I’ll be paying the layaway early. I’m also stalking SOOM like mad because they posted tiny heart hands in one of the sculptors instagram and that looks so promising!!! I need tinies~ Luckily my saving have grown quite a bit after paying off my university loan, so I can afford putting 2 dolls in layaway if needed and having the money ready if something happens.

So I ordered human Junia in Milk cocoa skin, elf head and animal head, no bow. I wanted to post about it sooner, but I was waiting for Souldoll to confirm my first payment. So now it’s official!

I have so many blog posts pending, so stay tuned!

      Hi thanks!! Yes, more or less, she will be either a fairy or another guardian of the forest, probably the second one haha 😀 She will put some order to all the mischief created by Sera and Fao 😀

    Congratulations!! She is really pretty, those lips are so cute~ I’ve been really tempted by MSD multiple times due to their size and cute clothes, but my main focus here is SD body for my boy.

    I saw those heart hands and I’m like “Oh NOOO they’re too cute”, I want them to release the sculpt I like because I’m sold on the hands already but then I also don’t because I need to save money… Soom is dangerous. ;-;

      Thanks!! Lips are the first thing I see in a sculpt hehe 😀 they need to be their best feature X) then the eyes~ There’s way more handsome BJD biys in SD than MSD, but I feel like I’ll adjust~ I’ll have to XD

      Same happened to me with those heart hands, I have so many expectations now from that release. Either a special roder from an older sculpt that I like or a cute new one, I’m screaming YES PLEASE XD, I’m sold! I wanted to save more money, but those hands look promising so I’m not going to hold back haha 😀 Soom is dangerous indeed!!!

    Congratulations on ordering Junia, she’s beautiful Alejandra. I’m sure she will fit in perfectly with your fantasy dolls.

    And I know what you mean about the SD dolls. I have a couple but like yours they very rarely come out to play. Even my MSD and KID size dolls don’t get much attention these days, though I do still enjoy designing clothes and sewing for them. Where as my Yosd through to PF size are always being played with and photographed, they just seem so much easier to pose and handle.

    Hugs,

      Thanks!!
      Your tinies are such a playful group, I love to see them, though now I’m curious about your bigger dolls haha but I agree, smaller sizes are much more fun to play with because everything is easier with them 🙂

    Yay congrats on ordering~ I hope you will love her once she arrives 🙂 The animal head was the one that made me fall in love with Junia since I think that it looks like R. Sweet Witch ^3^

    Those Teenie Gem heart hands are so adorable, I’m scared what kind of face the doll will have… I really shouldn’t get more TGs ^^;;

      I’m glad I’m not the only one reminded of sweet witch with this sculpt XD
      Thanks!! As the days pass, I feel more confident with this decision, let’s see how it goes 🙂
      I still can get more TGs 😀

    Ooooh congrats! Will she be your first MSD? She looks quite stunning and I really do love that you have fantasy dolls. I went into this hobby wanting to have only fantasy dolls but they’re always a bit beyond my price point so I ended having to adjust my expectations!

    I hear you on the big dolls. I have similar thoughts whenever I have to drag out one of the SDs. It often feels like such an effort but they do photograph so well so that is what keeps me hanging on to the big dolls but I’d totally love to see Eve in a smaller size!

    I’d love to hear your thoughts on dealing with Souldoll as I’ve liked a few of their sculpts (particularly their smaller dolls). Their feedback seems to be quite mixed so I never know what to think.

    So exciting. Always nice to be able to have the cash on hand and ready for a doll order!

      Thanks! Yes, She will be my first MSD. I’ve handled MSDs in person before, but never owned one. The hardest thing for me to get fantasy dolls is the clothes and the fact that they look way better in putdoors photos, something I don’t do much of. Your dolls are lovely so I think you adjusted your expectations super fine :D! But you know, maybe one day you will have fantasy dolls too~

      A smaller Eve would be cute haha!

      I’ll try to do a review once I get her, but that won’t be for a long while lol

    Ohh, congrats! I hope you will not regret the purchase and the MSD will prove to be the right size for you :3 The doll looks gorgeous as is and the tan colour makes it even more special (to me, ha), so I’m hoping you’ll post plenty of photos once she arrives ^-^
    And I hope you can find an MSD Lucas too someday, although a selfish part of me wishes that you can also keep your big Lucas, since he is soo gorgeous!

      I’m hoping not to regret too, that’s the idea XD I love tan so hopefully She looks prettier 😀 there was only photos of the animal head in tan.
      If I find and get a MSD Lucas, the big one is staying, I can’t be apart from my grail 😀 It’s just sad that He will be alone forever if I go to MSDs

    I think that your “research for future reference” worked perfectly!! xD Besides of this, congrats!!!!
    Junia is adorable and such a beautiful doll, I hope you will bond with her!
    And I can’t wait to see your MSD crew up. Best of luck with the sales!

      Hahaha it was research for the very really really close future apparently XD! Hopefully it will turn out fine 😀 Thanks!!!
      Luckily there’s more and more companies doing pretty mature MSDs these days, so I hope I will adjust fine~

    Ohh, I totally understand, smaller size is so much more portable for sure xO xO

    You also fell for a souldoll msd, eh? 😀 it seems they doomed us both! x3 x3
    Sometimes it’s a great idea to start almost fresh with your collection as well!

      Souldoll is stepping their game lately I think! From Justitia that I keep being in awe with their limited releases, something that never happened to me with them before. Maybe Souldoll is the new SOOM XD
      Thanks!! I hope I can start fresh 😀

    My first thought was: “Oh my God!” followed by “I want that doll!” So, I completely understand you that you put this doll on a layaway! Congratulations! I can even understand the small anxiety over the buy (did I do the right thing?) – I had it with all my orders, a true roller coaster (no, yes, nooo, yes) until the day they came. Pure love just hit me. I look forward to meet this doll and see how you feel about her when she arrives!
    Happy Valentine’s Day!
