So, I went to the SOOM store in Harajuku the other day(after looking for it for 2 hours, when I finally found it I was like, DURRR just like the lady on the phone said!), to look at the dolls in person and see just how tall the Mecha Angels really are. I have a few realizations/observations: 1. The dolls all looked much more doll-like in person than in pictures. Still very beautiful, though. 2. and 60cm is still a lot of doll. For some reason I thought it would be smaller, but it's quite large. 3. I wish more companies had physical stores you could walk into and see the dolls in person. 4. If you're being paid in yen it's still cheaper transfer money to America and then order from the American site, by about $100 for a Mecha Angel. I also had more personal realizations involving my own doll concepts, like the Mecha Angel body is just too tall for the character I want her for. Super Gem it is. Any thoughts from anyone else about doll stores, the SOOM store in particular, etcetc?
