Previous Loves – Chiron

When Souldoll released their Chiron centaur back in 2009, I just knew I had to get one! He was amazing!

In January 2010, I took the plunge and ordered him in gray skin, with elf ears, and included the Souldoll painted sword and shield. Unfortunately, I had missed out on being able to order his fullset outfit, but no matter – he was epic! <3

Aaand then he was delivered.

OMG.

The box was HUGE!

Seriously. The box he was delivered in was bigger than our coffee table (notice the can of Dr. Pepper for scale). o.O

His actual doll box literally fits right inside of the shipping box he came in. There was no additional space between them. And the amount of padding/pillows/foam/bubble wrap inside the doll box was insane – and totally necessary!

His elf ears were so gorgeous – I was terrified I was going to break one.

Check them out! Talk about epic elf ears.. <3

Souldoll Chiron Elf Head

I took a couple pictures of size comparison between him and a Volks YoSD (shown with PeapodDoll Hooves), and the size of his hands compared to the older single jointed body from SoulDoll (my SoulDoll Paris). The size difference is CRAZY!

Seriously, though, he was just so huge I couldn’t keep him. My husband and I were living in a 1-bedroom apartment at the time, and we just didn’t have space to keep him.

But he was so cool! And detailed! The detailing in the sculpting was amazing. Truly a work of art.

Luckily enough, I was able to sell him to a friend, so he is still in the area. <3

I loved him, but I’m not sure I would order him again… Maybe a Yo-size or PKF-size centaur might be a better fit for me…

Previous Loves – Kohana

Kohana was an OrientDoll So Ji. She was my 2nd doll, and way smaller than I had anticipated!

She was purchased on the second-hand market, and was super adorable.

Unfortunately, I was not thrilled with her posing abilities so I did not do a whole lot with her. She was also very difficult to sew for due to her size.

Volks Mamu

Previous Loves – Brownie

I absolutely fell in love with Volks Yo-Tenshi Mamu when she was originally released. Unfortunately, she was nearly impossible to obtain without paying a very high mark up, and was just out of my price range.

Volks then released a Sweet Dream version and I was fortunate enough to find one for sale on the secondary market. <3

Brownie was on the angel body, and while I normally had her as a girl, she made such an adorable boy as well.

As much as I loved the sweet dream Mamu, I think I would like to eventually get an original YoTenshi Mamu with the open eyes.
