An Azone Adventure

Its been a doll week in house Hare.

A few days ago I recieved my first ever Azone Pure Neemo! She is an EX-Cute Angelic Sigh II Lien, Smile version. And oh she is SO CUTE! I have Blythe dolls on Pure Neemo bodies, so i knew how excellent they posed but the overall quality of this doll is fantastic.

I’ve long coveted the little charecter dolls that i see in magazines like Dolly Japan and Dollybird, so to finally have one is an amazing feeling. I think i chose well? Honestly i dont know much about them beyond they are cuuuute, so i imagine there are collectors out there rolling their eyes at me, but i just chose one that was affordable and adorable haha!

I’ve named her Rian – not too dissimilar to her stock name, but easier for me to remember for some reason. *shrug*

She is second hand from Madarake, but honestly she doesnt look second hand in the slightest. I was really impressed!

Both her and the box dont have a mark on them, there wasnt a hair out of place… i wonder if she had even been taken out of the box before? I’m afraid i’m not the sort of collector that keeps things in their boxes… i just want to plaaaay!

Her outfit is beautiful, honestly. So well made. The little boots absolutely kill me! GAH! TOO CUTE! I’m going to have to pick up some new hands for her in the future, so that i can change her posing a little, because i cant imagine permenant jazz hands are going to retain their entertainment value haha!

I thought finally buying one for myself would either cement for me that small dolls dont do anything for me, or it would mean the start of a new obsession… Can you guess which it is?

Maybe i’ve just outgrown the appeal of larger dolls? Naaaah.

For now though, Rian is a welcome distraction and a a cute addition to the house. I dont imagine it will be long before i end up with a second! Although i might do a little more research before that happens. I know they have different storylines… but how much crossover happens? I dont know if i want to collect a specific set-series or just ones i happen to like the look of…

I may end up going down the latter route, if only because that is how i collect most things. Theres plenty of ponies i dont intend to ever buy, i’ll tell you that much!

Anyway, my other doll project this week will have to wait until next time… 😛
