Doll Deboxing Day

Illusion Spirit Ball Jointed, Strung Doll De-Boxing Day!! (Yay!) :-) 

Wrapped carefully! 

Padding Galore!

'The Unveiling!'

'Ta-da!!!'  :-)

Special Metal Inlaid Company Insignia! (She's not micro-chipped!) :-)


Su Xiao with her cream soda colored wig, silicone wig cap, frock and petticoat!
(As you perhaps can see, the shoes I purchased separately do not fit her!)

Pink Resin

Yellow-green Eyes

Vintage Cat Anyone? :-)

Two Strung Dolls (Past and Present...)

Cute and she knows it.

Doll love (to you!) ;-) 

That's Su Xiao! 

What a sweet, well-made doll, indeed! 
She is made of very light pink resin material.
She is 27cm (10.6 inches) tall, ball-jointed and strung. 
That makes this doll fully poseable, which 
is fun to 'play' with and to pose...most definitely!

She is made in China by a company called Illusion Spirit
and procured through a web site called 'Mint On Card.' 
What a neat name for a company!

I made the slouchy cotton tights and her beaded headband, 
and chose the small blue plaid cotton frock 
with its hood for this photo shoot.

I am well pleased. 
This was a lot of fun and I am glad I could share it with you!
