familiar stranger

I'd like to make a better post but I'm on the second day of all liquid diet and I'm . . . gone. I have to be *at* the hospital (over an hour away) at 5:15AM so . . . yep. >_o I have a friend who is going to update here briefly, so no one needs to worry.



Psych, he's not Kaelin. My F-40 arrived this afternoon. I did get the Omukae kimono but I didn't want him in something fancy right now, and I'd rather take nice pics of it. Ordered: February 14th.
Arrived: March 25th (can't do math what day he was ready in Japan...)

It's a little odd since I had gotten used to the Pixydoll Sevy as the character, I think (even though I decided he wasn't right). The kite purple eyes are interesting - it was slightly sunny when I took them out and they looked a like a darker Neosium (with more red), but in the pics and cloudy light they really look gray. May try him in another color too . . . sorry for lazy pics, I didn't do anything to them either. It was hard to get the energy to take any but I really wanted to.

Head: SD F-40
Skin color: white
Wig: W-94, 60 (mid-length shaggy, FCS exclusive, silver)
Eye: GE-01, 18/9mm (鳶紫, kite purple . . . um, it's "tobi murasaki"?)
Eyelash: EL-03 (brown; I wanted it a bit dramatic)
Hand: H-04 ("gun trigger" hah)
Leg: L-02 (long)
Foot: F-02 (tabi)

For the makeup I used the model doll photos because I didn't come in thinking I was ordering anything. The model on display at the table was actually the one in the book, so there is a small pic of him on the F-40 page - I asked for his makeup, roughly, but suitable for BW (since he's tan), and a little gentler. I also asked for the lip color to be more pink like another book photo. That one's not online, which is too bad, quite pretty - it was a girl paintjob, and I believe it was the same female F-40 who was modeling outfits in one of the Dolpa books. I've still had minor hesitation about skin color - I definitely decided against normal skin. But I went with white because a) looked nice with the wig; b) kept thinking of Dr. Seiji's boy with the tan; c) the manager told me she liked BW when I couldn't decide XD; So it was a little arbitrary . . . but tan still makes me a bit paranoid and I guess Milo will be pleased to have some white-skin company.

Actually the manager asked me if Milo (MSD F-08) and Naoya (Sch. A) were brothers; "tomodachi" was a much simpler answer than "actually Milo has a crush on Nao's half brother" . . . x.x So then she asked me about the F-40, for whom I resorted to describing him as the villain; she mocked punching him in the head (with sound effect lol). XD;
I am so glad that he came before my surgery. I got to see him, and I know he'll be here afterward.

Congrats on his arrival! I adore the F40 and can't wait to see yours in person. I'd also love to see him compare with Sakaki .. ♥ His face reminds me a bit of Olivia too.

Have a quick an safe recovery!

Oh, wow! Congratulations!!! He is so incredibly gorgeous! I'm extra excited, because my boy was ordered on Feb. 21, so he could actually be ready soon, although I can't pick him up until May.

I hope that everything goes well at the hospital and I'm so glad that you have someone new and beautiful waiting for you at home.^_^

Briefly sneaking in from work -- but he's beautiful and I'm SO SO SO happy he arrived before your surgery so that you could see him and know he's there. I hope that he'll be a support and encouragement for you afterwards too. *hugs* ♥

(For the record, he was ready in Japan on March 19th. ^^)

Oooh! Congratulations on the arrival of your FCS! I thought you had ordered a F36 actually, so Im surprised to see the F40! He looks remarkably a lot like Reisner to me because of the colors of his lips and blushing [along with the silver wig]. He looks amazing, and I hope he comforts you well during your recovery next week.

Yay, your new boy! :D I think I'm definitely gonna have to get an F40 before too long. Your boy reminds looks to me like if Reisner and either Amelia or Olivia had a lovechild. :B What's his name? You'll have him at Dolpa, yes? ^^
