My very first "big doll" that I ever wanted was a Dollfie Dream, and it wasn't too long after I discovered them that Mariko Sensei was released. I fell in love with the sculpt and her quiet innocence, but realized I wouldn't be able to own one at any point in the near future. I moved away from Dollfie Dreams for a long time in favor of a more affordable resin.
- Face-up artist(s):
- Volks Default
- Date of acquisition:
- September 4, 2015
- Second hand from Mandarake
- Reason for choice:
- Mariko is one of my grail sculpts and she was reasonably priced.
- Best Points:
- She's lightweight, adorable in everything, and comes off as very innocent and mature.
- Worst Points:
- I bought her with some light staining, and one of her ankles is a little wonky.
However, I simply could not stay away. A couple years later, I returned to the DD part of the hobby, and after losing the lottery for the Summer Festival version of Mariko, I took to the secondhand market. A friend of mine directed me toward Suzume specifically, and I bought her within a couple of days. I have no buyers remorse about her.
- Head Sculpt:
- White Skin
- DDS L-bust
