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!

  1. Great photos! She looks beautiful and sweet. The wig and clothes are very pretty (the cat ... isn't it from Skipper?). Su Xiao is very photogenic :-)!

  2. Hey Night Owl! Thanks for stopping by! Yes, it is a 'Skipper' doll vintage cat that goes with the light pink flannel robe! Good job! (Keen eye :-) ) Here is my comment for the most recent post on your bog. I can't seem to get it to post!? "Too funny! Great job! 'Love' the black and white, too! :-)"

    1. Thanks for your nice comment and visit! I changed the settings for the comments, there is moderation but now it's "open" :-D. Enjoy your lovely new doll :-)

  3. Beautiful job, lg! I like that you have this hobby. So interesting that Asian cartoons always put big eyes on the characters and they do the same when they make dolls. Love her big eyes!

    1. I agree Lynn. the 'big eyes' are truly a source of fascination for me, too. Karen :) Thanks for stopping by!

  4. Yes Lynn! They call their eyes 'anime' doll eyes (animalistic.) They do the most incredible face-ups. Some of the custom face-ups (paint/pastels/sealers added to bring life and expression) are unbelievably good! Plus they make a myriad of beautiful eyes! Some dolls have freckles, deep shading, and marks to make them look like wee homeless orphaned dolls! Or they look like haunted spirits (that is the rave!) I just figured that rather than getting stuck in the 1950's (trust me, I love the vintage dolls that were made in Japan and have 'enough' to prove it!) I would check out contemporary doll trends and I was 'blown away' at what I found. I plan to have just a 'few' to round put my daughter's collection! It is fun! I have even done a face-up and applied my Barbie restoration/painting skills to some of the new doll trends...I'm still learning! Missed you & thanks for stopping by, Lynn! Loved the Peacock Painting blog post!!! Hugs!!!!! ;-)
