|"How happy am I to be here? This much!"|
Rin is my third attempt at a PukiFee. Five years ago I bought Zoe, who despite being cute as the dickens just didn't have staying power. Her head seemed heavy for her body, which made her topple over. I sold her and moved on. Two years later I bought multi-head Bonnie and Zefi. The term multi-head is misleading. It refers not to a doll with more than one head but to a doll whose head fits more than one FairyLand body, in this case PukiFee and PukiPuki. Again, they were cute as could be but the size just didn't take. So here I am again, giving PukiFee another try. Considering how well the Realpukis have settled in, I think the size may click this time. I only hope it doesn't open the floodgates to a whole tribe of them!

I had a love-at-first-sight reaction to Rin's FairyLand photos. That was odd in and of itself, as Rin in the larger sizes provokes instant aversion. At the risk of alienating other Rin owners, I have to say that to me larger Rins look dopey. Sorry, but that's how I see it. PukiFee Rin's sheep ears and hooves immediately pegged her as a potential friend for my WithDoll Lamb Laney, which ultimately is what sealed the deal.

With good weather predicted for today and tomorrow, I'm tempted to paint Rin's sheep parts. There's not much to it, just a bit of pink inside the ears and a bit of brown tipped with black on the hooves. It hardly seems worth it to haul out all my supplies for so little. On the other hand, there are the sleep and event faceplates, and AileenDoll baby Ashes needs some extra paint in a few spots.

I'm hoping for another delivery tomorrow. I say "hoping" because the doll doesn't show up yet in the USPS system, even though EMS shows it having landed at JFK on Friday. Who's the doll? I'm not saying, other than that I am very, very excited!
