She's arrived!

It's my newest Fashion Royalty doll, from Japan. She arrived from Doll-Collectible. I ordered her on April 14, and she arrived 10 days later, April 24. That's pretty fast, I think, for an international order. I took advantage of a sale they were having (plus, if you sign up for their mailing list specials, you will get a coupon for savings to use at a later date). I have to say, I was impressed with their order updates--they told me when my order was being counted, packaged, then shipped. They seem very organized. I paid with Paypal.

So on to my doll. It's a Fashion Royalty Nippon Misaki doll called Red Rabbit. These dolls are not sold in the US. They are shorter than FR dolls, because they stand on hinged flat feet (not high heeled feet). Also, I think this is the body sculpt that Poppy Parker will be using--a slightly smaller bust and narrow hips.

Her outfit fits my Alice in Wonderland theme (she's the "white" rabbit with her pocket watch), in a gothic theme. Her outfit is wonderfully detailed, with an attached watch, chiffon sleeved blouse with pleats and buttons, and a pleated red skirt. I love her thigh-high stockings, too. Her corset-style belt buckles in three places, and the buckles work. I used tweezers to get her shoes on and real laces tied. The doll is very high quality--and she's wonderful. Check out the rest of her photo shoot on my Flickr album!
