It’s been a couple months since I last picked up a new doll, and though I was trying to hold out for Kaito’s arrival I didn’t make it. I’m lucky that the newly announced Ciel and Shin Sato DDs didn’t catch my eye because this lovely Mash Kyrielight has just arrived and stolen away my doll funds.
I had my eye on Mash since her pre-order, but convinced myself I didn’t need her fullset and could probably pick up her head later for a cheap price. I’m regularly guilty of ordering fullset dolls and never using their outfits/wigs more than a few times, so I was trying to break the habit and just get parts that I really want. Since Mash’s release I’ve been casually looking for her, and finally timing and funds aligned so I could adopt this cutie (with her body, wig and glasses) from a fellow DD collector.
Mash’s default wig needs a bit of styling, and I worried about the black glasses being tight or transferring color, so I ended up switching her to a cute and youthful wig and it’s surprisingly effective! I love Mash’s spectacles and shaggy pale orchid hair but this look says sassy princes and I can dig it.
If you’ve made it this far, maybe you’re wondering – when is Jadepixel gonna add more resin eyes to the shop?
After some bad batches of eyes in 2020 and 2021 that yellowed too quickly, I’ve been testing different formulas and techniques to resolve the issue. I won’t say I’m 100% certain yet, but a batch from 6 months ago and another from 3 months ago are still perfectly clear, so fingers crossed I’ve got a reliable process going forward. I hope to release some more eyes later this year. In particular I would like to get some new 20mm eyes in time for Kaito’s arrival! So please be patient and I hope I can have some nice products to show off soon.
Thanks again for reading!
