It’s been quite a while since I’ve welcomed a new doll into the family, but I’ve been patiently paying for my newest doll on layaway for the past 6 months. Moe-chan was first to greet the postman so she brought the box into our room, where Micaela, Médée and Serena were also hanging out.
The shipping box looks so small! It was a snug fit but with Micaela’s help, Moe was able to unpack it! Here is the box for Alice Kuonji – one of the standard yellow Dollfie Dream boxes!
This is one of the pretty photos on her box – it reminded me that I need to order some optional hands for her, since she is the new semi-white skin-tone. >__<”
Here she is just out of the box. Angry Bunny is on hand to make sure there’s no naked doll business o_0″
Here is my first look at Alice. She has rosy pink cheeks, a very curious mouth and mysterious, dark eyes.
Here she is out of the box! You can compare her vinyl colour to Moe’s hand to see the subtle difference that the semi-white skin has. She is also a Dollfie Dream Sister, with a small bust – which generally I would swap up to a medium bust but I purchased a lot of Azone 50cm outfits when I was in Japan and the DDS fits into them very well with a small bust!
Here is a better shot of her head sculpt, without the plastic covering. She has lovely pink lips and very simplistic makeup. I love her milky complexion!
Here are the other goodies that were in her box: her pamphlet, wig, outfit and boots.
These are the pieces of her default outfit: the dress, cape, scarf, hat, stockings, gloves, boots, panties
The inside of the dress is lined completely in white, however inspect it for leftover navy blue threads from the sewing process before dressing your doll. I found a few stray threads inside the dress 0_o” The sleeves are very tight so the hands need to be removed to put the dress on.
The cape is not lined, but the way that it sits on the shoulders doesn’t touch the face. The scarf with pom-poms is lined in white however I only kept it on for about 15 minutes to take photos.
The hat is not lined, and the inside of the wig has a black wig cap (not shown in photo) and has been reported to stain very easily.
So far I have had a glove and a stocking on spare doll parts to test their colorfastness and after 12 hours there are no signs of staining. I expect they will be safe since the socks feel like the material from Moe’s Bear Suit (which didn’t stain) and the gloves feel like the jersey that Machiko uses for her magic black socks. There is a snap on each glove to help put it on easily.
[Update November 4: Checked on the glove and sock and they left no stains after 48 hours!]
The brown boots are not lined in white, so take proper precaution when dressing up your doll.
Here’s Alice dressed up in her full default outfit. She looks so stoic and mysterious.
She looks too warm all bundled up with her cape and hat so here she is with just her dress.
Time to switch it up a bit! Here’s Alice with a lighter purple wig and an awesome Azone Black Raven outfit.
There are only a handful of dolls that made my heart flutter the first time I saw photos of her, but the moment I saw proper photos of DD Alice Kuonji I fell in love with her face and knew that I had to adopt her into my doll family. I had to patiently put her on layaway in order to afford her, but I’m thrilled that she’s finally home! Hubby surprised me by finding her magical Robin and Diddle Daddle cat charm at the Volks showroom in Akihabara tucked at the very back of a shelf!
I’ll be taking more photos of Alice in the next little while, so look forward to seeing more of her!
