Today everything fell in place: I had a day off and my first ever custom Pullip arrived: Ruri from Poison Girl! 😀 I am so over the moon, I cannot believe it! Everything about her is absolutely darling and she has not left my side since she has arrived.
Not only is she beautiful on her own, but she also fits so nicely into my collection! I was hoping to find the perfect girl with a pink theme and well, María is simply the best. I am also extremely happy that the clothes she chose for Ruri have a pink and white theme. Since I am a newbie to customs and customizing, all my stock dolls still have their stock bodies. Ruri has an obitsu because I love the way you can pose them. It is a whole new world for me! I am not in constant fear of breaking her body, when I simply want to sit her down (no noises from the hip area, thank God). Also, I need to get her different sets of hands, so she will be even more expressive!
Ruri’s eyechips are a beautiful realistic looking blue and her lids are polka dotted cuteness with super long lashes! Her brows are one of Poison Girl’s signature looks and give her this über cute expression. I want to hug her all of the time! The face-up in general is so precise and melts into her fair skin tone like a dream. Her blushing reminds me a lot of a certain Japanese make-up style, where you apply blusher directly under your eyes and stop right at the apples of the cheeks. It is so beautiful with the tiniest freckles. The blushing is continued on her nose with more freckles and the carving of her nose is darling. And who can resist those big pouty reddish pink lips?! I can’t! Again, such precise work of a true artist!
I am really looking forward to taking lots and lots of pictures since she is so photogenic! Of course I also got ahead of myself and ordered Ruri two different sets of outfits and a pair of super cute shoes. I cannot wait to share them all with you and I have lots of fun stuff planned. A little hint: When I first saw María’s pictures, she reminded me of a little pink mushroom and by chance there was basically the most perfect outfit on Etsy. 😉 I will link to Marías pictures, when she releases them on her website (they are so good!). Now Ruri and I are going to play some more for a while!
