They’re here! They’re here! Parcel Farce have finally brought my Taobao Factory Blythes home to me, and I love them! For now, I’ll refer to them as Miss Light Blue Hair and Miss Dark Blue Hair…
First off, they are both factory girls, not fakes. Miss Light Blue Hair is an interesting character, with red nail polish on just one of her hands! She also has a couple of tiny scuffs to her blush, and her torso was splitting at the side when I unwrapped her. A quick squeeze seems to have sorted it out for now. Miss Dark Blue Hair is my favourite of the two, simply because her hair colour is absolutely stunning in real life. It’s so vibrant when daylight hits it! She’s the perfect substitute for Alexis Emerald or an EBL Asian Butterfly… though I wouldn’t say no, if these dollies ever turned up at my door!
Both girls have B2Holic eye mechanisms with lilac lids, and very mismatchy body parts. Their legs were super super sticky, but a quick dusting of ancient Lush Candy Fluff dust sorted that out, like it has for all my girls. The added bonus there is that they end up smelling like sweets! On the downside, their legs are super bendy and jelly like, which is a little bit weird. In fact, Miss Light Blue Hair likes to tip over if you hold her by her legs! Their hair feels pretty soft, but definitely needs a wash and condition to detangle the ends.
My verdict? I love them! I can certainly see why some people have been buying these factory dolls by the bucketload. I think I will probably order another one or two from Taobao soon, seeing as my platinum haired lady was out of stock and my account has been credited with a refund. Perhaps another blue girl? Or pink? Definitely another fantasy hair colour!
