Aiden's box opening by tirsden Aiden's box opening by tirsden
Long pic is biiig, but I wanted to get it all out in one go.

So yesh, here's Aiden :love: :cuddle: my dream doll, a Minifee Luka Silver Bird fullset. I got his sleeping head and the default faceups on both, and he is absolutely precious! His body being way too tightly strung isn't cool (and pretty much unheard of for FL), it's like his body is trying to implode into a black hole. Doing what I can to see if I can stretch the elastic without having to restring him (have only restrung elfkin Aster before and he doesn't even have s-hooks except for the one in his head)... but I'll do it if I have to.

Aiden's dolly page is here, still needs a proper update as of posting this: [link]

I have a girl from DOD that is also strung really tight. It happens, as I know, most of the DOD/Fairyland dolls pose really good.

Sadly, this particular body really does have to be over-tightly strung or it starts showing engineering flaws (I've had it confirmed by people who don't have stars in their eyes for FL ^^;). I've heard DoD can ship tight but I've played with my lil' bro's Shall and she was fine on arrival; even if she had needed restrung due to tightness, the body itself is fine. I'm hoping Jian (Homme Ducan) will be a good tightness too, I'll get to see in a month or less if lucky. :meow:

Yesssh! :love::cuddle: tho... OMGZ Fairyland should be [insert things here that aren't allowed on DA] for selling a body they have to know is faulty, and stringing it dangerously tight to try and hide that fact. Ugh ugh ugh. I have temporarily restrung the poor boy with some craft/sewing elastic. Not great, but at least he won't crack or something. ^^; And hot-glue sueded a buncha joints, still need to do more. ~WeaverOfTheNight is sending me some elastic she just happens to be able to have easy access to, so I'll give him a proper restringing then. Nothing like a crash course in the concept. :dead:

Sorry it's been forever for me to respond! How's your Aiden?? Did he get himself all situated now?

Fairyland has been getting some poor feedback with a few of its' dolls. At least the last time I checked. :/

*is ridiculously behind* No apologies necessary here! :XD:

He's still on the temporary elastic (which has gotten tightened again) but he's doing okay, cuddling with Michael a lot. :cuddle: Yeah, I saw a lot of problems in the waiting room... sure, it was maybe one doll out of 10, but that was a crapload of dolls on that list while I was waiting (the winter event swamped the works ^^; ). And that kind of ratio would be a "WTF" issue if it were DZ or DoD or Soom or...

And I saw on twitter that they're trying to say they can't really make extra MNF neck attachment pieces without making a whole body. Bullllllll! Translation: "We know our bodies have issues, but our heads are cute, and require a special piece to work and to hybrid onto anything else! So you'll buy our body whether you want it or not, cuz the heads alone don't come with that piece, nya!" :dead:

Oh that sucks! I also find that a little stupid...
If I had monies I'd buy a body and a head and give you the extra piece...buuuut I has no monies...which defeats the whole purpose of things. lol

Awwwah cuddles~! That is too cute. I'll have to check out your stuffs. <3

I know the no monies thing too well, although I am hoooping to get all my disability backpay at the end of June (caseworker isn't sure if I'll get all of it, or just the partial check I was expecting, although he thinks it's a good chance). But I also found out that a huge chunk my previous caseworker told me again and again I would get... I won't. It at least paid off my lawyer, but I got a whopping $178. The original estimate on that part was $20K. Freaking government. They needa not tell people things that aren't gonna come true. (Oh right, they do that all the time.)

I'm sooo behind on DA myself. ^^; I blame WoW. And writing for y!Gallery. :laughing:
