My Second Ruruko

I collected my second Ruruko (the one from the US dealer) from my freight forwarder on the 7th of this month.  

I have had problems before with my packages being squashed and damage being done to my dolls' packaging inside.  This box was squished, but the inner box and doll box were fine, except for a dent on the left side of the doll box cover.


Notice the tear  at the top left of the box in the picture below.


There were no cute little cards.  It was just a box in a box in a postal box.

Here's the dent that corresponds with the tear in the outer box.   Sigh.. 

And here she is!

All decked out.


When I had a good look at both dolls together, I realised that they looked different.  My Petworks Ruruko's bangs, came all the way down and covers a portion of the top of her eyes  and my US Ruruko's bangs' stop a little above her eyes.


I'm glad they look different.  I don't usually name my dolls, but I am seriously considering naming them.   Lorinda on the left and Lucinda on the right.  

I also noticed that my Petworks girl's limbs are looser and she had a pin under her right arm that was popping out.  

I was able to push it in and hope that it doesn't work its way out again. 

Her left arm is fine.

So,  after inspection comes play!
Warming up.

Waiting for socks and shoes.

Ready.

"No. It's this way."

I need to get cracking on creating some Obitsu and Azone friends for them.  I already have the bodies and heads and plan to use decals for some of their eyes.   I also need to sew some clothes and see what shoes I have that will fit them.  I'm really looking forward to playing some more.  :)

  2. I like that they are slightly different. Gives each of them a unique personality! They are so adorable! I have one of these cuties too. I don't know if you have any Only Hearts Club dolls, but their shoes are a great fit for Ruruko. Also, some of the older Stacie shoes are a good fit too! Congratulations!

  3. It's great that Lorinda and Lucinda look slightly different, so you can tell who's who from the twins :-). The photos are adorable!

    1. Thanks, Linda. I was tempted earlier on to snip Lorinda's bangs, but I'm glad I didn't. :)

  4. These two dolls are so precious. I simply love their articulation which looks so natural! Thank you for allowing us all to watch the step by step deboxing. And yes, since they are ever so slightly different, you'll be able to tell the difference between your new twins!

  6. It's interesting what a difference that little variation in the fringe/bangs makes to the look of the dolls. They certainly look like twins but each with their own personality (and each very cute) and not just two dolls exactly the same.
