Hi, I am doll collector known through most of the dolly lands as Hina Ichigo. I mainly collect pullips and dals but I have recently branched into several other dolls such as blythe, bjd and dollfie dream.  This journal is now primarily friend's only, I'm pretty easy going about adding people just drop me a comment on this post and I will more than likely add you. The only reason this has gone friend's only is I occasionally post about my personal life. I also maintain a doll/anime swag blog hinaichigo.wordpress.com/ .

I have a fairly substantial doll collection, if anyone is interested in the particulars please see the following links...

Fatima

  • Pullip Io arrived Saturday, I really like her hopefully I'll have a review up on my blog of her later today. Her name is Fatima, I vaguely remember there being a bird themed villain from the Aladdin tv series by that name and I dunno it seems to fit her.

  • I also had two Sashas arrive, Sasha Pippin (bunny type) and Sasha Lumina (cat type) hoping to at least have comparison pictures up of them with other members of the Groove family today and then hopefully fully reviewed and blogged by the end of the week. I didn't have a pick as to which Sashas were coming but I have to say Pippin highly amuses me as her skin tone is gold.  They are actually pretty neat though I have to say I prefer the bunny type over the cat type.

  • I *might* be getting my hands on some of the Make It Own pullip stuff for review purposes. I'm interested to see what the quality would really be like especially with the prices they seem to want for the stuff.

  • Pullip Ally is supposed to arrive from Groove today via UPS.

  • I finally found a Musa Winx Club at Target over the weekend. Been looking for a doll of her for a while now I think the only doll I'm missing of like the main characters is Tecna.

  • Latidoll Event fmywallet T_T

  • Seriously can not afford Lati event right now especially with government shutdown potentially looming as technically I'm a sub-contractor for the government and a shutdown would affect me BUT I'm hoping to put up some dolls for sale and hopefully maybe be able to scrap together the cash for one of the dolls. I'm screwed either way as I'm in love with two of the dolls and there is no way I can have both Lea and Kuroo.

  • I don't own a Kuroo and she comes in light green this time around, if there was ever a time to buy a Kuroo this is that time. Lea is my favorite mold but I already have a Lea army, this one is so cute though. Either would probably be a bitch to redress. At least I'll have plenty of time to decide.

  • On the bright side, I do have 24 points on Lati and if my Sophie Bastet ships before the event ends I'll have at least another 33 points to use towards ordering a doll from this event.

  • According to tracking a small box of anime figures should also be here today :O I'm getting a Little Busters! Rin nendoroid,  YuGiOh Dark Magician Cu-poche (never actually watched the show just like her design ^^;) and a Charlotte toy from Madoka.

  • I finished reading Doctor Sleep by Stephen King on Saturday night, I was sick there wasn't much else I could do. Despite my initial hesitation towards the book, I have to say I quite enjoyed it but I still like 11/22/63 better. That one I just meant to read a few pages of at like 10pm at night and didn't put it down until 5am the next morning when I was done with it besides the Song of Ice & Fire books no books had really caught me that way in years. Probably going to read Thank You For Smoking next or maybe He Kills Coppers as my reading tastes are kind of all over the place apparently.  

  • I'm making good use out of my little reading nook, the only bad thing about my having brought all the manga down on the shelves: I saw missing stuff and holes. I used to have a lot more manga but then there was a situation where I was leaving and due to the intensity of the situation I wasn't really that concerned with non-essential shit as the situation was that bad. While I know for a fact all the stuff is still there (as obviously we are just on a really long break and I'm going to go back some day~ his words, not mine), I can't quite bring myself to deal with my ex over something so trivial so I've taken to replacing missing favorites as I am able to.

Pullips and Company I've got a visiting Yeolume at the moment, I'm shocked as hell about it but she's here. Pullipstyle contacted me about an unrelated matter and they offered to let me borrow their production model Yeolume for a little while and I pounced on the chance. I'm kind of shocked that I would be trusted with something like this ^^; I have to say I like her a lot more in person than ever expected to. I've been having a lot of fun photographing her, I did a bunch of size comparisons etc and am trying to make the most of her short time here.
Yeolume
I also very recently bought a Midnight Velvet Pullip (blog entry here) who I really love. I've been having some mixed feelings about Pullip lately, I still love them but a lot of the newer releases haven't been appealing to me as much recently plus the rising cost doesn't help the nail in the proverbial coffin had been my Tokidoki Luna. My Luna arrived with the worst quality wig that I have ever seen it came tangled in the box, I had been so excited about her as a release and it was just very disappointing. I'm very happy that Midnight Velvet kind of restored my faith a bit, I'm kind of hoping to pick up a Sentimental Noon somewhat soon now.

BJD My Latis Happy Bath Lumi & Snow Queen Miel arrived surprisingly promptly, they are both absolutely beyond amazing. Latidoll just announced a new Egyptian themed event, all the dolls are gorgeous and I definitely need at least Sophie Bastet, I'd also like Miel or Neferlati. Other recent bjd things of note? I got Volks SD Chii who I have been wanting for like eight years. There is also someone else who I haven't really spoken about yet and my Littlefee Lisa . I am still massively in debt to the hubby at the moment re: Chii and someone else ^^;

I've been wanting a second minifee for ages but had a hard time deciding on just which Minifee I wanted meanwhile I had been hoping and praying for a Minifee Ante. Guess what got announced recently? Bet you can't guess what my next Fairyland/larger bjd doll is going to be. She is an absolute definite must buy for me but also kind of low priority at the moment as I still have one more payment to make on my Pukifee Vanilla and the Lati event come June or so though I'm starting a layaway on her.
Minifee Ante
I liked her so damn much I edited one of the washed out promo photos of her so I could see what she actually looks like.

Still trying to get rid of Iplehouse Claude, also thinking of putting up Klein my Volks Tsubuki boy too as really boy bjds outside of anthros just don't do anything for me.  They look nice in other people's pictures and stuff but I just don't do enough with mine to justify keeping them.

Other I'm getting ready for Anime Boston here in a little bit less than a month. One of my friends are tagging along with us this year so it should either be super, super fun or I will want to strangle him by the end of like the first day it could really go either way. I'm also going to Disney World in the beginning of June, zilla is beyond excited about it she asks every morning if it is time to go on the plane yet to go to Disney so she can meet Mickey Mouse.

 I've been playing a lot more video games than usual lately, normally I just play Halo like 2-3 nights a week with my friends. It started with being in the mood for Soul Caliber about a month ago or so and playing the original on either psn or xbox live (can't remember) and deciding that I needed to go pick up the newest one so we went to game stop to get it, ended getting it as well as the new Tomb Raider and Lollipop Chainsaw. I LOVED the new Tomb Raider even if it didn't seem very Tomb Raider-y to me, absolutely could not put it down until I beat it. I still haven't beaten Lollipop Chainsaw, the controls are kind of frustrating so I only pick it up and play a level here and there. I also went through and beat Darkness II and started playing Castevania Symphony of the Night (going a bit old school) on my psp, I had the itch for a new game and I had a couple of my friends tell me I NEEDED Injustice Gods Among Us. I have DC vs mortal combat and wasn't overly keen on it so I wasn't in too much of a rush to run out and get it, figured I would just wait until after Anime Boston for it. Hubby spotted a TRU ad for it being on sale for $35 this week, they were sold out locally but Best Buy pricematches and guess who already had like $25 in rewards bucks? I just got the game yesterday and I'm already level 45, I've beaten the mainline story and am working my way through playing everyone in battle mode right now. I'm having a lot of fun with it.

I got shipping notice from Latidoll today for my OE Aladdin Coco today! I also got in the most perfect wig for my Pirate Lea today as well as the super cute elephant Jadenesscouture hoodie. After fruitlessly poking around the marketplace for the past couple of weeks, I decided to post a WTB on the Lati Adoption Yahoo Group for Tinman Lea. Within twenty minutes I had secured myself a Lea! Now I just need to do some more wig shopping. Mwahaha!

Lovely Latis Still anxiously waiting on shipping notification from Latidoll for my OE Aladdin Coco. I ordered Coco in October (Thursday will be four months) makes me wonder how long I will be waiting for my Happy Bath Lumi and Snow Queen Miel gah. I had been hoping at least Lumi would be here in time for my birthday in March but at this point I'm starting to wonder if Coco will even be here by then >_< I am currently waiting on some gear for my Latis including a new dark purple wig for my Pirate Lea as well as some Jadenesscouture goodies. I haven't ordered a wig for the Aladdin Coco yet, I think I will just wait until she gets home and try different wig colors on her as I am not quite sure what will suit her best yet; I did already order a hoodie specifically for Happy Bath Lumi (it's got an elephant on it so like it will continue her Elephant theme from the happy bath event).
Group shot cheat!
All my lati babies
I'm hoping like hell to be able to buy a Tinman Lea in a few days, I had thought long and hard about ordering her during the Wizard of Oz event but I ended up passing on her as I already had four Leas at that point (I have since added Pirate Lea to my crew) and I wasn't sure how well an all grey girl would fit in with my hyper colorful crew. Of course now I regret it and the regret only deepens with each new owner photo of her I see.

Fantastic Fairyland It's been a while since I have fallen victim to Fairyland' beguiling call butI fell victim during thehristmas event. I got some DDE giftcards for Christmas so it was that much easier to justify the super lovely Littlefee Lisa. The Valentine's Day event is already calling my name, Pukifee Vanilla is too cute to resist. I plan on ordering her on the 15th via Denverdoll. I keep toying with the idea of getting a second Minifee, eventually I think I will get both Chloe and Rena to be Mayday and Miss Trick respectively. Mayday and Miss Trick are characters I've had in the back of my mind for a while but the thing is Mayday is supposed to be beautiful but have a scar and I'm not sure if I actually have the balls to scar a $400 doll. 
42/365- Kismet
My Minifee Miyu- Kismet whose normal pink wig is awol so she is wearing a blond/blue mix at the moment
In kind of hilarious event news, I was cleaning the doll room a bit and I picked up a Littlefee box and it felt a bit heavy turns out it had a couple of event items I had completely forgotten I even owned in it. I found the Littlefee introduction event clear blue resin wings as well as Winter 2010 wings that fit Littlefee/Minifee since I didn't even remember owning them I decided I should toss them up on the MP as they wouldn't be missed. I tried to find pricing information on them but there wasn't really information to be had, I found someone selling the blue resin littlefee wings for over $100 and that was like the only time recently they had been listed and I wasn't able to find any listings new/old for the littlefee/minifee wings one of my more resin-inclined friends said the littlefee/minifee wings are worth like $150 and pretty damn rare but I wasn't able to verify it all so it's like I don't know all these prices seem really high. I listed them as $75 for the clear blue ltf wings and $120 for the ltf/mnf wings on DoA but said I was willing to take offers/trades, I have no idea if those are okay prices or what compared to what I have been told them seem like okay prices but it still seems high >_< I have a glimmer of hope that I can somehow finagle a OE Littlefee Pong NS faceplate with face up (I want a girl LTF Pong) or a ns pukipuki via trade (I have too many pukipuki faceplates >_< ).

Viscous Volks I keep looking at all the pretties and wanting another Volks SD but the cheapest one on my list is well over $1k gack, oh and lately I can't stop staring at pictures of SDGr Lorina >_< I have decided that I will be selling my Iplehouse Claude soon as I like him more in theory than I do in practice and

I just bought a Winx Club doll on Amazon, I got the basic concert version of Stella. I saw her in Target last week and almost bought her but ended up deciding to get a Novi Star instead. There was a sale and well though I do not officially collect Novi Star (I do have Una Verse) as their articulation is kind of janky, Ari Roma is pretty damn cute so I ended up getting her. It worked out in the end, as Stella turned out to be a great deal I have Amazon Prime at the moment so free shipping and she was only like $4.53. I don't intend on collecting Winx Club Dolls (I've watched all on one episode of the cartoon) I just happen to like Stella and her outfit (it's orange, of course I like it).
Ari Roma

I've done pretty damn well with keeping up with Monster High though I have failed to chronicle many of the new dolls via photograph yet >_< I have all of the Dance Class dolls, basic and deluxe Scaris. I've been having a lot more luck finding MH in stores recently, Skelita and Jinafire are the only two dolls I have never  seen in a physical store (Requiemart found mine) but I think this is mostly because I found a Justiceshop an hour away from me which is like right next to the one Sonic's in the state so I can either have a victory or a consulation strawberry banana milkshake on the ride home. 
I have all of the Picture Day dolls waiting for me wrapped up under the tree.  I have decided that I will not be collecting the Ghouls Alive dolls, I saw them in the store and I just don't care for them at all (especially Clawdeen) so I am just going to pretend they don't exist (like most of the CAMs). Besides the Ghouls Alive dolls which obviously don't exist, I am actually only lacking three Monster High dolls at the moment Costco Draculaura, Scary Tales Draculaura and Ghouls Rules Clawdeen. 
Dance Class Operetta
Ponies? Well I have two cases of blind bags on the way to me as we speak, haven't been buying too many lately mostly because of space and having mostly everything I want already ^^; I did buy Crystal Motion Applejack on Saturday while we were out and about as well as a Twilight Sparkle for the zilla. I bought a MLP for my friend Andrew's son, he's two year old he likes to watch My Little Pony... Andrew and his wife just got through with the divorce and she has made the decree that MLP is not allowed as it will make her son "a goddamned queer" so umm yeah even though Andrew himself hates MLP, Andrew and son have been watching MLP together every weekend and he will have a Rainbow Dash toy from auntie Klein to play with at daddy's house.  

Been bitten a bit by the Disney bug, zilla has a lot of stuff from the Disney Store put up for Christmas and well I can't help but to notice other things while I am shopping for her like the Disney Designer Queen of Hearts doll (got put away until Christmas) >_< I heard that the Disney Animator's Princess dolls are being discontinued which made me a sad panda as I absolutely love and adore that set and hoped they would release a second series with Alice (I know she isn't a princess but I still want her) in it. I had bought Rapunzel for zilla online before hearing the news, when I heard I immediately went on Disneystore.com and tried to order a second Rapunzel for myself (I have all of the dolls NRFB, I wanted a Rapunzel to take out of the box though because she is my favorite) but they were sold out online so we drove up to the Disneystore on Saturday. I looked around with zilla and much to my surprise she wanted nothing to do with the dolls as absolutely everything in the store was overshadowed by the tea set they had on display. After zilla and I went to look in another store, the zilla daddy bought the tea set and Belle for zilla for Christmas and bought me Rapunzel and Ariel (my 2nd fave of the dolls) for Christmas.

Still recovering from mild pneumonia which is not entirely fun, I somehow managed to scratch my cornea in a freak accident a couple of days ago and am wearing a patch still then today I have a migraine and am absolutely covered in hives. I *thought* the hives were a reaction to some cleaning products I used yesterday as I hardcore cleaned the kitchen; doctor friend of mine was theorizing "It's stress! It's stress! honestly you should smoke some weed" O_o. After my fourth shower, I realized it was neither stress nor cleaning products that was causing the nightmare hives turns out it was my  goddamn new body spray, I sprayed myself without fail every time I got out of the shower no wonder it kept on fucking getting worse no matter how many times I got in the shower. I also managed to fall into the shower during my last shower so in addition to everything else I am now black and blue in several places >_< At least the migraine is starting to mellow out a bit thanks to the pain meds so I feel substantially less like I death than I did a little while ago. .. so your move universe what else you got the throw at me?

I just found out one of my dolly friends actually passed away. I mostly talked to her on twitter which I have not been very active on lately, I had sent her a few messages she hadn't responded to but I didn't really think anything of it until I saw a link for a sale on her website being passed around. Standard sales procedure, I scrolled through all the pictures and was blown away by how many of her dolls were for sale then I went back to read the first part of the post. She wasn't selling, her husband was she passed away back in May the after they returned from Dolpa, coincidentally the last time I chatted with her online was during Dolpa. She was young but had been suffering from a long term illness. We mostly just talked about dolls but she was a military wife too, so we would talk about the ins and outs of being a military spouse which actually helped me a lot last deployment. Just fuck, I'm depressed now :(
