It’s been a lonely, boring few months of isolation so I wanted to share the box opening video that I made of my Volks Dollfie Dream 2B. It’s been such a long wait for this doll – I had this teaser poster saved from May 2017!
The pre-orders for her were opened from October 20- Dec 2nd 2018 and she finally arrived last week. The 20 month wait period is something I expect from certain indie resin doll brands but this is a first for me. The delay was in part because of severe damage that affected Volks’ manufacturing facilities last October when Typhoon Hagibis hit Japan.
The delay actually worked out since we didn’t have to pay for the remainder of our pre-order until earlier this year and it helped us with our trip budget to Tokyo in January.
She’s so incredibly beautiful. This video is a bit long – putting on the socks and boots and whatnot took while. >_<" I hope that you enjoy watching!
It’s been a while since my last update but I wanted to share my unboxing video for Sheryl Nome! I ordered Sheryl and Ranka the first day they because available last November, and now after almost a full year they both arrived! I’m so excited to share this box opening with you! I didn’t realize until I was splicing clips together that it was almost 40 minutes long! >__<”
There’s a tutorial about how to put in the CoolCat aluminum reinforcement pieces in this video. If you are already familiar with them, you can skip that part of the video.
Updated information about the outfits:
Valkyrie (Default) outfit: I checked the bustier 24 hours after putting it on Sheryl to check on the blue and red threads that I was concerned about didn’t leave any stains. I’ve put some tape over them just to be safe.
Lion Dress set: the top is lined in grey on the inside. I had Constance (Alisa) wearing it for about 3 hours and the socks didn’t leave any marks on the tops of the thighs or on the bottoms of her feet.
I’ve had updated reports from XOHimitsuOX and thebobness that the threads on the top of the socks can leave stains (after a few days). I personally didn’t have this problem, but my dolls are in a cool, dark space with little humidity. If you live in a warmer or more humid climate then take appropriate precautions! The gloves can stain the hands a little bit where the seams are – it’s a problem with the thread that Volks used rather than the fabric.
Sheryl Casual Date Outfit: The inside of the blouse is not lined, but the black shorts are lined in a pale grey inside. Sidonie (Saber Extra) wore it for about 3 hours and had no signs of staining from the shorts or the socks.
