Sarg already had Zhimor and now I have this little girl, her name is Mila :3 I ordered her on December 2nd, so it took a little less than 4 months, which just fits in the company's estimated waiting time of 3-4 months.
Scroll down a little bit to find out what kind of dog Mila is! ^^
When I opened the box there was this most adorable card ;___; ♥ It makes me really happy that I'm able to support such lovely artists that have a passion towards making these dolls~ You can really tell that they put a lot of love into this :)
On the other side of the card there were pictures of some of the dolls they offer :)
A note with my order info~ So Mila is a Russian Toy terrier :3 Eve Studio used to have this breed available only with a docked tail, but I requested them to release it with a natural, long tail... Docking dogs' tails is not allowed here in Finland and being personally against it as well, it wouldn't have felt right to have a docked dog as a pet for my characters, even if they're living in a fantasy realm instead of Finland X''D But yeah, I'm very, very happy that Eve Studio listened to my wishes and released this version some months after I asked!
Now back to the box opening!
OH HI TOO CUTE ♥
After taking the box opening pictures, I started playing around and trying out different poses for her, just to get a hang of her posability. She's a great poser I think and able to get into many realistic poses!
Here you may be able to see the texture of the material a little bit! It's not as smooth as resin, it feels a bit like sanding paper and also gives this fur-like feeling when photographed :) This material is also very light-weight compared to resin!
She seems to want some doggy treats.. ^^;
We had this cute dog bed for Mila and I even made a soft mattress to it, but we might've underestimated Mila's size and the bed is maybe a bit too small ^^;; Or it kinda looks like something that Shagrilah and Zinnia bought for Mila when she was a tiny puppy and even once she grew up (and outgrew the bed), she was so attached to her beloved sleeping place that wouldn't accept any other X''D Maybe that's how it went in the story, so that Mila can keep this small bed... She does look like she likes it lol
I was unsure about what size to choose, since there are not so many of these Russian toy terrier BJDs around and I couldn't find any comparison photos with SD sized dolls to help with my decision... So it was a bit of a gamble, but I think Mila looks perfect as 8cm! Not too small "handbag dog", but not too huge for it's breed either :)
I've been sewing for Zin and using her as a sewing model, which is why she's lacking a pair of pants here ^^;; That shirt is new and I'm also
slowly working on her wedding dress ;3
Just look at thiss ♥♥♥ I'm a huge sucker for the seeing deep bonds between dogs and their owners, I think it's one of the most beautiful things on Earth~ I can already feel that these characters will be very therapeutic to me when one day my own dear dog (now 10 years old) will no longer be here ;___;
Sarg is making some toys for Mila and I'm going to make her a cute collar with a name tag ♥ Hopefully we'll get to take a little photoshoot of the whole "family" since Sarg is coming over for Easter and will bring Shagrilah with her *3*
