Yuki Kimono and three of the other previously full sized Lalaloopsy are already being sold on eBay as minis!
Although they’ve already sold the colored version, you can still currently get an unpainted version of Yuki, as well as any of the four newly spotted dolls I posted about earlier this week, from douhikeshop. I’d be really interested to see what the buyer ends up doing with this! I personally like the mini version of Yuki better than the large version. Real kimono are made out of rich, often embroidered, kimono-specific fabric, and get their layered look by actually layering at least one other under-kimono under your outside one. I am very picky about dolls dressed up in them. Unfortunately, since she’s just a regular doll and not a collector’s edition or something, Yuki’s kimono is just a single layer of cloth with contrasting colored fabric sewn right on, even a panel going down the front of the kimono, which would NEVER be in a contrasting fabric like that on a real one.
Mint E. Stripes, Smile E. Wishes, and Winter Snowflake are all individually available from seller notoriousdolly. I love the Mint E. Stripes mini; I didn’t want the large doll because of how her dress spiral was plastic and separate from the dress fabric, but the mini clears up those issues for me. Smile E. is cute, but Winter Snowflake is adorable. I’m wondering if they made her snowball hair soft and fluffy, like mini Toasty Sweet Fluff’s dress was. If you know, let me know in the comments!
