My first (and hopefully the only...) big Azone girl arrived yesterday! ♥ I've had my eye on the bigger Azone dolls as long as I've been into their smaller dolls, but there hadn't been "the one" for me until this new version of Happiness Clover Mocha :) The earlier version of Mocha was cute too, but I still thought that I'd wait if there'll be another doll that I like even more. It was the right decision for sure, this Mocha looks like it was made for me, hahah XD
I decided to name her Maru, which means "round" in Japanese~ I thought that the name is perfect for this round-faced cutie x3
Box wrapped inside a layer of bubble wrap!
The box design is absolutely beautiful~
There was a plain white box inside the pretty box
And this girl was inside! ♥ I believe that some of the bigger Azone girls have rooted hair like Pureneemos, but Mocha is one of those that use wigs :) I forgot to take a photo, but there's a small area on top of her head that resembles the material of silicone caps and helps to keep the wig in place.
Maru with all the stuff she came with~
There are actually little magnets under her feet, so that she can stand on her metal stand base without any support!
Some promo photos and an overview of her outfit and accessories
The backside shows some of the outfits that were available for separate purchase around the time her pre-orders started. The outfit on right actually looks like a bigger version of Sahra's a la Mode outfit ;3; It looks so cute and I would've loved to get it for Maru, but the price makes me cringe... I might try to sew something similar myself ^^;
Instructions on how the head and hands are attached. Useful information especially for people like me who have never handled nor seen this type of a doll in person XD
There are also some hair care instructions. I've never used Azone's doll oil mist before, since I don't really like the flat and wet-looking feeling the hair seems to get from it... But maybe if I used just a tiny bit, the end result would be good? I might give it a go at some point :)
Instructions on how to put on the clothes, there are quite many snap fasteners in this outfit ^^;
She also came with the same leaflet as smaller Azone dolls
Here's a comparison with Aya, one of my DD girls. She's on DDS body, which makes her about 58cm tall, DD base body is a few centimeters taller. I love the height difference, Maru looks like the perfect little sister ;3;
I love this girl a lot, she's even more cute in person than I expected and fits in with my DDs really nicely~! It was nice to receive a doll with some clothes for once, so I don't have to sew something in a hurry XD I like her fullset outfit a lot too, so I definitely don't mind having her around dressed in that ♥
