the other items are wrapped separately in bubble wrap.
Did I mention that he's adorable? The Elemental Guardians are 26 cm tall, with a size 6-7 head, and either 12 mm or 10 mm eyes. Each one is available as either a boy or a girl. There is a choice of skin colors and either general or mobility thigh. (The mobility thigh joint's rotation allows for more natural poses when a doll is seated. On the down side, it makes a doll less stable when standing. Two of my Little Fees have the mobility thigh joint; the one that doesn't is a lot surer on his feet.) I chose the general thigh. Byuri had additonal hands available (one cupped to hold the wand) and I ordered those as well.
|Clothing and wigs I ordered with the doll|
IpleHouse notified me the day before Byuri shipped that the wig I had ordered was not available and that they were substituting another wig rather than delay my order. Until he arrived, I sat on pins and needles wondering what color and which style I would end up with. I needn't have worried. The wig that arrived with Byuri was the same style (whew!), only it was saddle brown instead of the darker brown. He looks good in it. Ball Jointed Woman is happy.

different degrees of realism
One reason I ordered Byuri with real skin was so that he and Anastasia (Asa) could pass as brother-and-sister. I recently bought her a brown wig, thinking it would make for a closer resemblance. And then Byuri arrived with a different color. Sigh! Such is life.
