Blanche is Here! (And Needs a Name)

Blanche (Needs a Name)
Originally uploaded by Arwym Starlight
My Blanche arrived on January 12th, 2008! I opened as soon as I got home.

She's really pretty, but her hair is too delicate, so I have to be careful. Most of the doll clothes I have do not fit her body. Her type 3 body is too small and skinny. But I won't change it as long as it's in good conditions.

I still don't have a name for her. Some choices are Eden, Nymph, Ninfa (which means Nymph in English, if I am right)... and dunno...

She is wearing a Licca friend stock school uniform in this picture.

Magma Heritage Feedback, and Problems with Blanche

January 3rd, 2008 (10:05 pm)

current location: Puerto Rico
current mood: angry

Yesterday, I read about a common problem with the Blanche Pullip doll. Apparently, their wrists break VERY easily. It seems to happen very often... I didn't know, so now I am worried mine will come with the same problem.

And today, I decided to look at Magma Heritage's eBay feedback, and the FIRST negative feedback I see... is about this precise issue.

Negative feedback ratingMy doll arrived with a very broken wrist, in below average packaging. :(

    Not 1 single email from buyer that anything is wrong. Lies from buyer

And as I have read as well, the seller avoids any problems by saying the buyer is lying. This makes me very angry. What if mine comes with her broken wrist as well? I am definitely not going to accept it.

Oh, but there's more!

Here's a neutral feedback left by a buyer:

came without her box

    Stupidity Knows No Boundaries. Very Disappointing transaction. Not recommended.
 Nude Blanche Pullip doll minty mint with doll stand (#230175952896)

I say that this seller's rudeness knows no boundaries.  To call a customer 'stupid'.  Even if the customer is a little wrong to think that a nude doll has to come with her box, he has no rights to call him or her stupid, less for something like this.

This seller doesn't seem to understand this fact: no customers equals no business, and no money.
Instead of keeping his mouth shut or responding like a professional, he decides to call by names such as  liar, stupid, and who knows what else.  How old is this seller, anyway?

It is also a fact that this is probably the LAST time I buy from Magma Heritage, even if my doll comes safe and sound.  I am not going to please an immature seller who tries to avoid problems with ridiculous accusations and disrespectful responses to their customers.

And now, let's hope my Blanche comes soon, and in good condition.

The Lovely Linger Sisters - First look

Here are the first two Licca clones I bought. I really like them, to be honest!

New layout... sort of.

current mood: blah

Since I lost Photoshop, I feel like a noob again. I am trying to learn The GIMP, but it's not the same. And my graphics are sucking. >.< So here is a new layout, based from a pre-made one. I am changing some things here and there... I still don't have the courage to try making one from scratch. I am lazy.

Bankrupt! O_O

January 2nd, 2008 (09:34 pm)

current location: Puerto Rico
current mood: anxious

I know, it's sad! But this Christmas, I spent a lot of money on... things that are not priority. Dolls, games... Things like that.

I have a laptop debt and a few other things I gotta pay for every month. I charged several items to my Visa card, too.

I have to stop.

So I have kind of sworn that, until I have cleared all the debts, I will not buy any more dolls. I need to control myself, or else... I'll turn into an addict!

Sorry, dollies! I really wanted a Filato Taeyang and a few others. But this is too much. I know mom is angry and my brother won't stop criticizing. I know I should not care for what others say, but they are kind of right. I love photographing dolls and collecting them, but this is not priority, and there is a limit.

I won't buy anything else for about three or four months. That is, until my birthday. Or until the laptop debt is paid completely. But I will continue updating with photos and news of my dollies, so don't worry! I am not going to disappear. Less now that my first Pullip is coming, and that I got new stuff for my Cocos!

Today I bought FOUR imitations of dolls. One of a Petite Blythe (which I regret, as she is very ugly and low budget, especially the outfit), two of Licca, and one of... well, I think it's not really an imitation. It was a total of $10.17, but still. They were not necessary. I think I am going to sell back one of the Licca clones, which I bought to give for free or sell to anyone who's interested, and the Petite Blythe one, which I bought for the mini house.

Check my latest Flickr photos to see what Licca clones I am talking about. See the blond one. I have another of those, still in her box. Let me know if you want her. I can sell or trade for some cheap doll clothes. Depends, because I would have to calculating shipping costs. The doll is nice, though definitely cheap. Her shoes are, well... not the best.

Merry Christmas, and Happy New Year!

current mood: cheerful

Hello, everyone!

Wow, it's been a while! But Lilith and Chichi have been doing well. They wanted to wish you a merry Christmas! Unfortunately, I don't have any pictures. But hopefully soon. ^_^

Look, I know I rarely come around, and that I don't visit your journals. But deep from my heart, I appreciate all of you who come over here and leave me those nice comments. Lilith also appreciated that you cared for her when the body transplant issue left us very depressed. Chichi has been a good sister, though! And now we are all feeling better. I am getting used to seeing Lilith in the Licca body, and all I need now is to get her a new wardrobe, when I have some money. Because... I got some more news.

I got a NEW camera! It's a Canon Powershot, like the first I had! I am so pleased... Now I can take good pictures again!
Not only that, but I also have a wonderful Christmas present from my mother, who is now getting used to the idea of me collecting dolls. I know she still worries about my little "obsession" and and about how expensive this hobby is. Especially when she finds me browsing eBay and reading picture fiction, such as the super wonderful Pullip soap, MIB!

Well, about the gift... It's a PULLIP! My first pullip! A nude Blanche from Magma Heritage is on the way home right now. She's coming from Singapure and has already been shipped, but I'll still be patient. I remember being impatient with my Cocos. That almost drove me crazy!

Some pictures are being uploaded to my Flickr, so if you want to see, go to http://flickr.com/photos/arwym

I'll try to stop by each of your journals to greet you, one by one. Thanks for reading, and happy holidays!

A possible solution...?

I am trying to get used to the idea of having Lilith in this alien body. I don't want to feel like I destroyed my most precious doll. She was that special, you know. And I cried for like 30 minutes non-stop. I am hoping to find a possible solution...

If you know of anything that would help, let me know.

Thank you.

Lilith is gone...

September 23rd, 2007 (02:58 am)

current location: San Juan, Puerto Rico
current mood: depressed

I can't believe I did this... I killed Lilith.

She won't stand up, her new body is frail, too small for her, and she looks weird. And I can't restore her to the old one, because it's broken. I want to cry. I know she's a doll, but she was my favorite doll. I can't stand this.
