yet another a post that is long overdue. I am happy to share with you a very special girl~ (Or, one part of her at least, as only her head is home as of yet. (^-^);; )
This past Spring, Tenshi-no-Mon held a giveaway for a one-of-a-kind DDH-10 with a special faceup by Nakitaninja. I fell in love the moment I saw her, so I entered. But I never thought I’d actually win. You know how it goes, right? So the day that I logged into my email and read, “Congratulations!!” I definitely thought, “Is this a dream?! 🤔” Luckily, it wasn’t.
So thank you, Nakita, for making this precious girl and for being so generous. I will treasure her forever~ 💕
She arrived safely home in Spring, and has been waiting for her debut ever since. So let’s get her out of the box!
Here she is!
Her faceup is absolutely beautiful. I definitely wasn’t able to do it justice with these pictures. I’ll try to do better next time! (>.<);;
Her skintone is Semi-White. It’s a lovely fair tone with pink undertones. Like their resin line, Volks vinyl is ever-so-slightly translucent, lending a lovely and realistic air to their dolls. It’s different than, say, American Girl vinyl, which is quite opaque.
Her name and character are still to be decided, and I’m happily planning away everything she’ll need. Volks recently released the DDP body as a standard, which is a relief as I think MDD would be too childish and DDS too tall – DDP is just right! Her eyes I will make myself, and I’m scouting wigs. It’s really exciting to plan everything like this~ I’m looking forward to having her finished soon.
If you have any advice for a new DD owner, please share! Are there any essentials I should get? Anything to look out for? Looking forward to hearing your thoughts~!
And please check out Tenshi-no-Mon! Tenshi-no-Mon is a Volks fansite lovingly run by Nakitaninja, and it features fan translations of news, fascinating bits of Volks history and insights into Volks events and traditions. It’s a wonderful site for Volks fans. ❤️ (Though I might be a bit biased, as I’m a sometimes-contributor myself. I don’t think so though!) Please check it out!
