The surprise attack of the pure neemos: Sahra a la mode Pink! Pink!

Hello everybody!! It feels like I haven’t posted in forever and i’m sorry about that.

Between being way too obsessed with Final Fantasy XV, a little problem with my right hand which led to a humongous k-drama binge watch, I just haven’t had much thoughts for my dolls until the last week or so.

I’ve been however, actively searching all over for cool scrapbook papers for my diorama, though my finds haven’t been too good, but that will be on another post. And talking about scrapbook paper, my good friend Alasse told me She would sent me some from Australia and I was super excited when I received the box!

Sure it looked a bit too big for just papers, but I thought there was going to be a lot of bubble wrap. Imagine my surprise when instead of a zillion layers of plastic I find a pink box with the “pure neemo” words written in it right next to the scrapbook papers. I literally picked the doll box and ran out of my room making weird noises. Many people know how much I love these dolls, but I never dared to buy one for many reasons, the price and the click wars being the biggest ones. Not even in my wildest dreams I would have imagine to receive such a generous gift from a friend, and I still don’t understand what I might have done in this life (or past lives if you believe in that) to deserve such great friends in this hobby. It’s not just the parcels I receive, but also the time you all take to read my rambles and comment, and send me good luck when I need it, or tell me that is okay to feel some way or the other. Before this blog I was all alone in the hobby, sharing some stuff here and there but not really meeting anyone. Now this hobby not only brings me joy because of the dolls, but most importantly because all of you.

And I love I get to share this amazing hobby with Alasse, I think we have so many in common so it’s always a treat to receive her emails and parcels.And I love sending her things too, though they can never compare.

Crappy photo because I was too excited to wait.

As you can see, Alasse went with my favorite head and color for the doll, love how thoughtful She always is. I couldn’t have picked a better Pure Neemo to start myself!! Now I’m worried this girl will need some friends XD!!! I think I’ll have to start stalking the new releases and start fighting for a pre order soon ~

The doll is super detailed and oh so cute! I always loved how they looked in photos, but seeing them in person is another whole thing!!! It must be the only type of doll that I like in person as much as I like them in photos. For BJDs I have always liked the photos better, since they look alive that way, but holding a bjd in my hands kind of makes the magic die a little. It’s not that I dislike BJDs, quite the contrary, I love making the magic happens!

She came with 2 leaflets, explaining maintenance of the doll and detailing all the clothing pieces she comes with. She also sent me extra clothes I like a lot and shoes!! This girl is already so spoiled and has much more stuff than my Momoko doll LOL.

This girl in one of the little books caught my eye. Pink hair :D!

And here a comparison between Pure Neemo (M) and Momoko dolls. Momoko dolls are thinner and taller and also weight less than Pure Neemos. Posing mechanism is different too, I think Pure Neemos system is quite clever, whereas the Momoko dolls posing is more classic.

Pure Neemos also have extra movement at the beginning of the legs and arms. The torso joint is placed lower, like in older BJDs while Momoko uses the underbust joint.

Love the Pure Neemos shoulder mechanism, so original! I’m also loving the fact that both dolls can work on the same scale so I can play around with my dioramas a lot more and have way more styles, because I think Pure Neemos will look better on cute styled ones while Momokos can fit modern style better. And you know I love my stuff cute too.

I want to thank Alasse once more for her generosity, this is something I definitely wasn’t expecting and took me by surprise completely. Didn’t think I would love the doll so much to go around running and screaming like a little girl XD Maybe I should have caved in long ago!

And I say bye until the next time while Sahra here (no name for her yet, I’m not too sure how can I keep naming dolls and remember later lol), says hi to all of you.


Hope you have a great day!!

    She’s so adorable!! 😀 I think it’s an amazingly generous present, that I can imagine must bring you lots of fun and joy!
    I look so much forward to seeing lots of photos by you of her :3 (And the many next you’re probably gonna buy hahaha)

      She has always been very generous and kind to me ~ Sahra is just perfect!

      Thanks!! I hope I can post some advances soon, though I have zero props to fill up a room.

    Wow, that’s a really splendid surprise gift! Sahra is simply gorgeous and she has a lovely body. I suppose all the joints make her amazingly posable.

    1. Fantasywoods Post author

      It totally is!! I haven’t played with her enough yet but I like how she poses so far~ I think I have to play with her while she’s naked to learn how to properly pose her, that’s a fun thing to do :D!

    What a wonderful gift! Congratulations on your first Pureneemo, Sahra is such a cutie~ ^^ ♥ I’ll look forward to seeing diorama photos! 😀

    And thank you for including a comparison with Momoko, it’s really helpful! :3 I’ve been curious about Momoko dolls for a while now, but I’ve yet to find one that I like enough to buy. Pureneemo dolls tend to steal my attention because their fullsets are gorgeous and you usually get more clothing pieces & accessories with them for less money, compared to Momoko & Ruruko. :D;;

      Thank you!!! I love the doll so much~ Now She needs some friends XD!

      I’m glad you find the comparison useful, I wasn’t sure if anyone would actually wanted to see it, but since I wanted to see the different of each doll next to the other, I thought why not to take photos as well haha. I agree that you gwt a lot less stuff with Momokos and Rurukos than with Pure neemos, which is a bummer. I also find Azone clothing more detailed, but that’s probably because clothes are very lolita with tons of layers while Momokos clothes are more casual.In any case both kind of dolls are amazing in their own world.

    Congratulations Alejandra! Nothing like a new doll to make a girl run around the house jumping for joy! She’s a cutie alriight. And definitely needs a friend . . . or two. 🙂
    Good to see you posting again, I’ve missed you.

    1. Fantasywoods Post author

      Hahaha I couldn’t have said it better myself!! Maybe this year She will get some friends :D! Since my YoSD collection feels almost complete.
      I hope to post sooner next time, thanks for waiting for me~

    Congratulations! She is so pretty! Love to see more of her! Love the comparison, too . Very helpful. I can see that the pure neemos’ hands are so cute.
    And yes, i would have been running around the house too – until someone says “but mum….!”
    And that is true, dolls need friends! <3

      Thank you!! I hope I can show her often, the size makes it so easy :D!! Glad you find my comparison useful, wish I had a barbie to put next to them as well, maybe next time~
      I agree the hands are amazing and Alasse was kind enough to send me extra hands to play with! How cool is that?!
      Who would have though that getting new dolls would be our cardio? LOL

    She already looks right at home with you and I love your photo of her a lot. You always have a knack for taking great photos that always seem to make your dolls look truly alive.

    Thank you so much for taking a comparison with Momoko. I never thought of looking at that. I do feel the same as you in regards to the posing of Momoko compared to Pureneemo. I find Momoko to be more of the “classic” fashion doll jointing system compared to the more advanced style of Pureneemo.

    I can’t wait to see what diorama you will end up with.

    I love the girl in the pink hair too in that booklet. I think she is an older release, possibly one of the more hard to find ones. Pink hair Pureneemo dolls tend to sell fast.

    These dolls are like chips. You can never stop at one 🙂

      Aw thank you for that amazing compliment!! I have always thought dolls come alive in photos!!! sometimes better than others but it’s a lovely magic to see happen 😀

      Can’t wait to see my diorama as well XDD I’m worried I won’t be able to fill it with many things, seeings as I only have a sofa incoming (could have tried crafting one but I found it too problematic lol). Need to craft the rest or slowly buy things. I have binge watched My froggy stuff!!

      Yeah pureneemos with pink hair are lovely but always sold out. I’m okay though, the blonde Sahra is just eprfect for me. It’s also my first blonde doll :D!!! Maybe in the long run I’ll get a pink haired girl, you never know 😀

    PS. How is your hand? Is it better?

    I started to watch Legend of the Blue Sea on Viki not realising only the first 4 episodes were available to non-premium members. What a bummer. I was really enjoying it.

    1. Fantasywoods Post author

      My hand is better thanks, it’s just that it starts hurting after too much computer and for some reason it wasn’t getting better as fast as on other occasions with proper rest. But stopped chatting, playing and doing anything on the PC besides work for a little over a week and that helped 🙂 thanks for your concern!
      Dramafever and Viki are both doing that too often in my opinion, everything is premium. And I don’t think I’ll be renewing my premium account on dramafever when it expires. Probably try Viki for a few months to watch dramas that I wanted but dramafever doesn’t have, then go to Netflix.

    Waiii, she’s sooo cute and what an amazing surprise from Alasse @o@ She’s so lovely and kind!

    It’ll be good to see these two similar sized dollies interact!

  9. NyteRaine

    Congratulation! And that was very sweet of your friend! I have been interested in these dolls too but never got a chance to owning one. One of my favorite is the Little Mermaid Minami. I just love everything about her from her pink hair to her dress.

    Congratulations! 😀 Sahra is such a cutie girl, wonderful to see comparison with Momoko, I had seen few irl but didn’t realise how similar scale they are. 🙂

    I hope your hand is getting better too!
