New Arrival- Paola Reina Liu

My Liu doll arrived! Actually, she arrived yesterday. Yep, that’s right, on the morning of a bank holiday, amazingly. This isn’t going to be a real review of her, just a few little notes about her and pictures.

What could be inside this very exciting box? I wonder.

So maybe the box isn’t best prepared for shipping or photo taking, but that’s okay. Nobody can help static!

My full-body picture of her fresh out of the box turned out unfortunately blurry, so if anyone would like to see a photo of her in her full default outfit I’d be happy to take a new one but for now here’s a close up of her face which thankfully didn’t turn out too unfocused!

So maybe her eyelashes and eyebrows are a tad crazy but I’m so pleased with her. She feels lovely; her vinyl is smooth and a beautiful colour. She has very thick hair which can be a little unruly which I don’t mind in the slightest.

Next we raided my doll-clothes box to see what fitted her. She is 32cm tall which is between BJD sizes and she also has quite a big head! This is all I could come up with right now.

The cardigan is a little revealing at the front there! This is her default skirt and shoes too. The shoes are actually very good, and the skirt doesn’t seem to be bad quality either! The hat is made to fit an MSD size BJD head, but it fits her nicely. Putting a doll in “home clothes” is usually the first thing I do when I get a new doll before I make them any of their own clothes. Maybe it’s something about making them feel more familiar?

This is a very short post but I’ll be back with more photos of her soon for sure! I’m thinking maybe I’ll call her Lissy, but I’m still very much open to suggestions.

Thanks for reading! -Julia

Edit: I just realised I forgot to add in about this brilliant way she was attached to her box. No scissors were needed and no fingers were injured in freeing her, which I think might just be a first!

There’s a little plastic hook stuck to the box on either side of her and an elastic band going between them holding her in. I haven’t seen this used in doll packaging before and I’m really hoping it catches on! -Julia
