I was also one of the first 27 to order, so I got a free head! I was expecting to get a Christmas elf, which would have been okay (since they're free!), but ever since Neko-chan mentioned her unicorn, I was crossing my fingers for a unicorn! Lo and behold - I got H.K. unicorn Ruki *__* Dream come true!! I'm unsure if he/she will be keeping this faceup, but right now, I'm just super excited about those cute ears!
Anyways, I'm really happy with this release. They both photograph beautifully, and I've always had trouble with the light tan dolls ^^; Even Aspen, my tinman Lea, doesn't get a lot of playing time because of her irregular skin tone. I guess I'm just a NS-loving girl after all! Both outfits are really nice this time around. Cookie's is just gorgeous! I don't know if I'll ever take it off, hehe!
One last unrelated thing - I hate going on the DoA thread these days. There are so many people who just keep asking the same question that was answered just one page ago. If they could just read, then we could save like 10 pages per thread of repetitive questions! I also find that new members who have started posting on the thread have been very judgmental or harsh about other members' comments recently. Plus all the negative talk about Lati has made me really want to stay away from the thread lest I start feeling the same way about them, too :P I definitely do dislike Lati's business practices, but I still will buy from them after all. I haven't been on there much, even though I used to frequent DoA all the time /: I miss how it used to be - full of beautiful pictures and excitement around new releases!
