~Asian Dolls~

I saw this Victoria Secret dress and thought I could make it... I started playing around with some fabric (when I was supposed to be writing my lab report) and realized a need a doll I could make sample clothes for. At first I just wanted a Barbie doll... anything I could find.  I went to flickr to look around. I can't remember exactly what I searched for, but I was definitely blown away!  I entered a world of Asian dolls!  The all look like anime characters and they are so cute... well at least most of them... some of them are kind of scary looking...


I want Sarang from Blue Fairy! She is just gorgeous, but I dont know if I can justify getting a $300 doll to my husband.  Super Dollfies, which are made by Volks are customizable.  I think I'm too new to even consider those.  As I kept looking, I came across Pullips and Momoko dolls, which are a little cheaper and smaller, but just as cute.  I believe Momoko's are closer in size to Barbie dolls.  (Blue Fairy and SD (Super Dollfies) are about 17" tall.  I want one of these soo bad.  My mom's going to Korea at the end of this month... I wonder if she could find me one... since Blue Fairy and Pullips are Korean dolls.  ^___^

Sorry for all the hyperlinks, but I didn't want to steal anyone's pictures and too lazy to get permission for my meager blog.  If you flickr (or Google) any of the names/terms above, I'm sure they'll come up.  Man I really want one...
