I have recently acquired my third Soul Kid, the second to turn up on ebay. Her name is Ahee (if anyone knows the meaning of this Korean name, please let me know in the comments -- thanks!) and she came on Souldoll's double-jointed body. This means that I now have one of each body style: the old body (Linn), the new general body (Mayu) and the new double-jointed body (Ahee).
As I am no longer the novice I once was where BJDs are concerned, I shrugged off her antics and got out my restringing tools. I restrung her arms. The elastic was so tightly knotted inside her torso that I had to cut it because I could not undo the knot. Now that's tight! I gave her a slightly longer elastic; even so, I find her arms tighter than I wanted. The elastic could have been a bit longer still.

Ahee has a broad face with something of a Mona Lisa Smile. Looking at her, it occurred to me that her head might be a better match with the original body, which has chubby hands and feet and looks more childlike. Linn, on the other hand, has a more delicate, more mature face sculpt. Her head always looked out of place on the original body. So, I have switched them.
In the photos, Ahee is wearing a dress made from the Kimono Lolita pattern in the February 2007 issue of Haute Doll. I have also used this pattern in black and white for U-noa Sist (see my Black-and-White-Party posts). Her wig is Ashes from Jpopdolls. The other dresses have appeared in previous posts: Linn's dress on U-noa Lusis and Mayu's outfit on U-noa Sist. I'm not sure of the origin of their wigs. Linn's wig came with Ahee, but it looks like an IpleHouse wig. There is a wig on their website with two little bows made of exactly the same brown elastic lace. Mayu's wig came with one of the U-noas I bought on ebay, but it's not a U-noa wig. The tag inside it says Global Dolls, made in Philippines. I have not heard of them before.
