Greetings everyone! I just wanted to post a quick update! I put myself on the waiting list for one of the Smart Doll Kizuna Yumeno. (pronounced “kee-zoo-nah you-may-know”)
Have you ever heard of the Smart Dolls? Here is some information from their website:
Smart Doll is a line of 60cm tall articulated fashion dolls designed by Danny Choo. Smart Doll is designed for all races, ages and genders. Owners are from all walks of life from a variety of backgrounds. Owners are notably creative who love to customize and take photos of their Smart Doll. The design of Smart Doll is influenced by Japanese Pop Culture but modified for an international audience. Combining the level of detail that can be achieved at being 60cm tall, the visual expression of the free flowing hair and crystal clear eyes gives Smart Doll a look that has not been experienced on an international level up until now. Housing an internal frame, Smart Doll strikes a balance between aesthetics and poseability. Conventional dolls have a parting line located in the middle of the waist but Smart Doll was designed with the parting line located behind the bust line which provides a more natural look.
Each Smart Doll is 60,000 yen and comes with a full set of casual clothes and a telescopic stand. Payment is by Paypal who also accept credit cards. Shipping fees and other purchase related info lives on the Buy Page.
So…. yeah. I ordered one. And a corresponding T-shirt for me…. and an extra T-shirt for Kizuna. They have an amazing line-up of additional clothing for the dolls! I can’t wait to purchase more!
So if it seems like we are slacking around here lately, with all of the new EAH and MH dolls that are coming to market, just know that I am still here…. it’s just that I am a little broke…. (60,000 yen plus optional add-ons came to a little more than $600. So……)
We will do a HUGE unboxing video, photoset, and small party when Kizuna arrives. Depending on if I was “one of the first” or not, she could ship out next week or as late as June 15. I’ll keep you updated on the process!
