Late night body swappin’

There’s really nothing like a good box opening to get your mind off of other things (I feel like this is a blanket fact… Unless you dislike presents or shopping or you see the box as an obstacle). Here is said box: The Merry Go Round Licca chan finally came in the mail! She’s a bit pricier than the basic dolls I found on eBay, but I had two intentions when I chose her – 1) I wanted to harvest her body, 2) I would feel bad tossing the head in the bin, so I wanted a girl I could be excited to add to my family without feeling like I have just added clutter (I didn’t want to feel “eh” about the licca chan). So of course, she has pink hair.   

 When I’m deboxing a doll, the deboxing might take a few minutes, but it’s the things that follow that will take me an hour or two. After I get a girl out of the box, I do a hair assessment. Her hair is actually very close in shade to Rosaline’s hair. It’s also a bit greasy, so she will be getting a wash and maybe a boil curl. I think I will keep her in her pig tails though ^^. 

Her stock is kind of cute, but it’s flimsy. It kind of reminds me of a kid’s Halloween costume. I like the print!

And then off goes the head and…    I put Licca chan on a Pure Neemo Flection XS girl body in Natural or Flesh-tone. It’s not a perfect match, but that’s ok. Her skin tone is kind of in between White and Natural. Switching her body was actually pretty easy. I just pulled her head right off of her original body and then pushed it onto the new body. 

I really like her on the pure neemo body! I think the proportions are just right, and she looks less like a child’s toy, kind of like a very low-end Ruruko in that they are both on pure neemo bodies and they have painted on faces. Maybe it would be better to call her an upgraded Licca?       
Look at how well she holds poses! I guess the PNXS body would work better with a head that’s actually to scale. I actually don’t have much that wouldn’t look too baggy on a licca or pure neemo XS body, so I put her in the Lambellina top, deep burgundy tights, and coolcat boots (pretty much what I had on Summer the first time I rebodied her). 

Seeing how well the pure neemo body holds poses with a to scale head makes me excited for the Azone character doll I preordered ^^, as well as putting together an Azone/Obitsu hybrid. 

I’m not sure what I’ll call this girl… I’m thinking of Merry, Bubblegum, or Pinky.

Blythecon Ho!

Yeah that title looks weird. >_< … sorry.

BUT! In a few hours, I will be making my way to Chicago predominantly for Blythe Con USA 2015. This will be my very first Blythe Con, and my first time traversing the streets of Chicago. I’m all packed, with my two girls dressed and ready for our trip. ^^ I’m taking Finley, my mostly stock Cadence Majorette, and Marina, my Project Dollhouse custom. Hopefully, we all make it through the trip with little to no accidents >_<.

I have specific shopping goals for this convention – I’m going to try to limit myself to buying separates, and pieces I could potentially use to dress my future Azone/Obitsu hybrids. I’m also excited to see the tables for quite a number of sellers, as I always prefer buying things in person than over the internet. I’ll most likely upload the Blythe Con photos as soon as I can via the Flickr app, and I’ll also make a post regarding the convention when I get back.

Also before I pop off, my two Azone Pure Neemo Flection XS bodies came in the mail! I ordered a white skin boy body and a natural skin girl body. IMG_3959IMG_3958I posted two photos because I couldn’t quite get the colors to show true (it’s nighttime here :-/ ). XD The white skin boy body is on the left and the natural skin girl body is on the right. Ok, I’ll try my best to describe the colors and other differences I noticed in bullet form (:D just because).

  • The boy body is kind of like NC15 in MAC foundations, and the girl body is kind of a bizarre shade of orange – maybe the lighting is playing tricks on my eyes too… If I had to guess, I’d say maybe the girl body is a very orange NC 30? >_< Best way I can describe it.
  • The boy’s body has a slightly broader torso than the girl body.
  • The girl’s body has a thigh gap.

If the girl’s body isn’t a color match for my Merry Go Round Licca chan’s head, I might just go ahead and make her Fionna Human. Also, I’m starting to think maybe I should try dying the boy body a light grey… but it seems a bit too advanced for me.

😀 Hope everyone has an awesome weekend!
