Aurelie, or Elie for short, is a Lati Yellow Sunny. Sunny is one of the molds I have always wanted! I love her big eyes, her pouty lips and her fluffy cheeks. Hee~ Makes me wanna pinch her, gently of course.
I had Elie ordered direct from Latidoll last June 19, almost at the end of the order period that time. After almost 3 long months of waiting, Elie was marked as shipped by Lati last September 11, and finally arrived in the Philippines on September 16. Unfortunately, due to time constraints, my friend (who orders my dolls for me) was only able to pick her up at Customs on October 4.
While waiting for her to come home, I was itching to just blurt out my frustrations about the wait time on my social media accounts, but I wanted her to be a 'surprise' to my BJD friends who knew that I've always wanted to have my own Lati (hello MM girls!). I even brought her along during a doll meet (the MK meet), but she stayed in my bag since she doesn't have a face-up yet.
More babbling in this blog post. Now on with the box opening pictures!
The extremely battered outer box! One side of the box noted that it was received this way.
A few more hours to go before this year's Manika Manila Tiangge! I'm very excited and nervous. Excited because this is one of the biggest MM events of the year and I'll be able to show off and sell the clothes I make, but at the same time, nervous because I feel like I'm not well-prepared. Gah, I only have a few more hours to finish all these clothes and work on my display. Haha.
Sorry for blabbing too much! I missed blogging here. Anyway, here's a quick preview of the clothes I'll be selling tomorrow.
