Ah yes, they're here. After a near coronary, I was able to bring the girls home in Manila. To all those who ordered--thank you for your support, and hope you enjoyed 'em girls. Sa uulitin! (hindi ko na sasabihin kung sino sino yun, as I've decided to be discreet with my clients. Naaks. Manika lang yan ha! hehe. But really, some asked for non disclosure). While everyone placed their bets earlier on either Adorable Aubrey and Heather Sky (Heather was sold out 'on shelf', that night I came to pick up the pre ordered dolls--that's in less than 8 hours of release outside Japan. Taray), Winsome Willow turned to be a huge surprise. I'd have to say her promo material didn't do her any justice, much less the use of pink eye chips for her promo pictures.
Now, not saying that the other two girls weren't that good looking as predicted. Aubrey was pale, chic and maldita-ish, and Heather was charmingly 'different' (note: it's not every month that Hasbro/Takara releases a dark skinned girl, so I'd say she's a keeper). As I was telling gingmaganda--Heather just needs a change of clothes. heh.
Now, back to Willow-- see? She's pretty naman pala, kayo talaga (picture below). :)
