"Invited by a new age..."

From left to right: Sailor Neptune and Sailor Uranus

I present to you my favorite pair of soldiers from the Sailor Moon series! They're belated birthday gifts. I can't say enough about how thrilled I am that Groove decided to make Sailor Moon dolls.  Such nostalgia! I just wish that Sailor Uranus' space sword and Sailor Neptune's mirror were included. The actual Sailor Moon doll came with her moon wand so I don't get why the others didn't come with their personal effects. Oh well...I guess that's just another thing I gotta search for online...

So, for those who aren't familiar with these two, they really knew how to kick ass without the whining and the crying. They also have a somewhat controversial relationship. I say somewhat because it was never directly acknowledged in the anime even though there was a lot of insinuations...And we won't talk about the North American dubbing...That was just shameful!...Cousins my foot!

Here's Uranus carrying a small figure of Neptune that I've had for a long time. I was always a bigger fan of the Outer sailor soldiers. I was a kid when Sailor Moon got popular in North America so the most I could afford were trading cards and stickers but I do have a Sailor Uranus plushie that I got from Anime North over a decade ago! See Neptune below.

Happy Monday!

2015 W Club Upgrade Doll

I totally needed to update this blog! I haven't stopped collecting dolls. Life has just been a bit hectic. Here's Groovy Galore Poppy Parker looking groovy no more. She was originally wearing such a psychedelic looking dress that I wasn't too fond it. It seemed like something more suited for a Francie doll. I can appreciate her better out of that dress. I think she makes an awesome Grecian goddess with that pretty face!

Lead Singles Lilith

Lilith from the FR NU Face Lead Singles Gift Set 2012
by Integrity Toys

Although I have a crap load more Poppy Parker dolls, this was the face that actually suckered me into the wonderful world of Integrity Toys. My first IT doll was Eden, who is identical in face sculpt with her twin doll, Lilith. They just vary in hair colors and such. I was hoping to see more of the twins during the last W Club unveiling in May. They haven't been seen in a few years. Alas, the wait continues.

This particular doll has had her little trip to Hong Kong at some point to get her face redone by IT because she was suffering from some kind of skin disease when she first got to me. But she's all better now! And she has currently stolen the FR 'Exquisite' Monogram doll's outfit. I thought she looked really cute with those flowers on her hair.

Happy Tuesday!
