The little girl who arrived today is an Iplehouse BID Bordy in 'special real skin' which is a light tan colour resin. Iplehouse is a BJD company in South Korea and BID basically just means Baby Iplehouse Doll. I ordered Bordy on the 15th June and wasn't really expecting her to arrive until late August/early September as they state on their website 60 working days to produce. However, I was amazed when I received notification that she'd shipped on the 30th June! She arrived in Spain on the 3rd July and as usual went straight into Spanish Customs......(just in case you're new to reading my blog, I wany to add here that I absolutely HATE Spanish Customs.....) and finally after having to pay her hefty ransom, she was released Friday and arrived here this afternoon.
She is 26cm tall and multi jointed. She wears a size 6/7 inch wig, although I feel she'd be better off nearer to 6 than 7. She came bald as I couldn't decide on a wig from their site, but I did add a couple of cute hoodies to the order as they were so reasonably priced, although it's far too hot to even try them on at the moment, so she'll keep them until the weather cools a bit. Her eyes were blue acrylic and true to form they came straight out and were changed for these dark glass ones. She's been through the clothing box and chosen an outfit for her 'debut' here but really needs a different coloured shoes as these don't go so well with the outfit!
Even though I don't feel Iplehouse dolls posing is as good in this size as the Fairyland Little Fees, I do love how 'real' their sculpts are, with more naturally sized features and proportions. I think of all the companies, their dolls look the most realistic.
I don't know if this is her 'final' look because I'd planned dark curls for her, but I like how she looks for now.....so without further ado, here are a whole bunch of photos of her. Sorry that there are so many but I couldn't decide which ones I liked best!!!
Thank you for looking and for welcoming my new girl! Now I have to choose a name for her. I have been thinking about Brodie or Camille.....I'm leaning towards Brodie because it is very much like her factory name, Bordy, and easy to remember! :)
Have a great week everyone!
