Archive for Saber Lily
I’ve been very busy this week so I’m late in reporting this. On Tuesday (3/15/2011) I received my 3rd Dollfie Dream daughter Saber Lily. She is just so beautiful that the pictures don’t do her justice. She really has a wonderful elegant look to her and she’s so photogenic.
I made a detailed post for her arrival at figure.fm if you want to see those pics with a small photo-story as well.
I was very worried about her wig after hearing so many people who have had problems with it. Thankfully it was fine and I managed to get it on without damaging her pony tail. For those who are getting her or are unfamiliar with the problem the trouble is with her pony tail. The pony tail is not very securely attached and if you pull on it or even nudge it too much it could come loose and fall off.
Another issue is the hair that’s coming together where it attaches to the wig is not as securely held together as it could/should be. This could cause hairs to come loose from the pony tail. There are some fixes that are suggested on the Internet and some seem to work I’m tempted to try the suggestion from Wolfheinrich which he did on his Lily – it involves sewing through the wig cap, into the pony tail, and back… securing it with a few loops so it can accept more pressure without coming loose.
I will be sure to post more and more pics of Lily as I take them. I’m still working on finishing the styling of her wig and it’s taking some time. I want her to look her best for future pics.
I haven’t updated the blog in a little while and there is one thing to blame.
World of Warcraft.
Now that we are getting some nice photos of Saber Lily I’m even more interested in getting her. The trouble really seems to be how to get her from the Japan only lottery. I may have to wait a month or two and see if she’s going to be made available at Volks USA.
More importantly, on to the new images of Saber Lily:
I adopted Dollfie Dream Sakura a few months ago and I’ve been feeling the desire for her to have a Sister. The trouble is, which one? There are so many great DD’s to look at when considering adopting one but some of my favorites were priced way out of my reach. I’ve wanted Saber for a long time but with some of her prices going into the range of $4,000 I knew there was no way that was going to happen. Untill recently.
The other day it was announced that on December 12 at Dolpa 24 (Doll Party 24) in Japan Volks will be selling Dollfie Dream Saber Lily. Yes, this will be their 3rd edition of Saber that is going to come out!!! I am very excited as this gives me a chance to get Saber at the original price before it gets inflated in the 2nd hand market:
