Oliveoil ~your girl looks so pretty! I love her in the blue eyes, I think they go well with her colouring ^^
Jane:Thanks! The brown does have a dramatic look. I am not sure which I prefer. I want green now.
DT eyes are fun because they are cheap and look great.
Icchaeyo: Thank you! I agree with you, the blue softens her look.
Nancy: Thanks! I am getting a great selection of wigs for her. I named her Katherine. I think Mari will be Molly.
Oliveoil, your Sarah is so pretty! I love her with the blue eyes!
Am joining the thread because, after wanting one of these little ladies for quite some time now, I've pre-ordered a Mari in NS with a faceup from Junkyspot
Reading quickly through this thread I see 6mm seem to be the best size?

Aeilia: Thank you! I like the blue too. I need green now.
kayjay: I ordered Mari in NS too. Yes 6mm works the best.
Thanks Oliveoil and Jane
Jane - I think it's about 60 days. I wanted to see a Limhwa order come in successfully before ordering, so I'm really excited now! I now need a good clear out of wigs and clothes so I can raise the money to buy her some nice clothes
love the blue eyes... I have DT eyes in sepia/cypress/driftwood/doeskin and a free pair in old sunrise? so enough colours to make a choice...
and summomo welcome to the waiting I orderd through triskel and they are waiting for the first delivery...........waiting is really a part of having bjd's......not trying to dream to much about her and not to buy to much for her.....They always turn out to be a total different personality then I have in mind...
I orderd mine with wig and eyes, so she won't be bald..I still haven't decided on a wig for her.....I know she can have more, but most of my dolls pick out a wig and never want to change again.....
summomo: Congrats on ordering Sarah. I am hopeful we will have our orders in 2 months.
wilkies: Thanks on the blue. I want to order more colors. I have sepia but there is very little white. For some reason the iris takes over the eye. Did you have the same problem? Hope your Sarah arrives soon!
I want to get more clothes for Katherine (Sara). I am assuming Monoko or Pullip is the best for size. Any other suggestions? Shoes are still hard to find.
Congratulations summomo ....now the wait begins
And how long ago did you order wilkies? I have forgotten if you said-sorry
And I try never to buy much until a doll arrives too....like you I find the doll rarely has the same idea that I have! LOL!
I have only bought one dress for my girl so far and that was in Momoko size from Clear Lan
But my girl is still barefoot so I am really interested to hear if anyone finds shoes that fit this body.
I've been searching for shoes also, reading through the older thread it appears that Riley's shoes will fit, which I have lots of... but they are all childlike and these girls clearly need more adult ones. Does anyone know if these fit http://www.mudoll.com/shop/step0.php...20070328030833 or any others that do?
kayjay: Those mudoll shoes are great! I hope they do fit. That is just what Sara needs.
I found some of Rubyred shoes fit from the Riley doll. Thought these boots were cute with the dress.

Congratulations summomo! You'll love Sarah. The wait is well worth it!
The ToYou girls do have an unusual sized foot, and it's hard to find shoes that are a good fit. Those Mudoll shoes look awesome! I don't know anyone who's tried them yet.
Oliveoil - those RR boots look really good, I think I have those somewhere also. I have quite a few boots and only one Lati Yellow, so Florrie will just have to share her wardrobe!
Summomo - yes please tell if the shoes fit or not. I figured if I buy a pair, I have so many tinies here they'll fit someone, but it will be good to know if they fit or not
The Mudoll/Glib shoes are kind of an iffy fit, I've found--I have several kinds and, while I can get most of them onto the Limhwa foot, they always look odd. The problem is the width of the foot, even more than the length--the ToYou's foot is just wide enough across the instep to cause some issues.
Riley shoes do work, though. I have several pairs. Right now I have my ToYou Sara in these:
and they work well! They look a little fat on her feet, but her feet are such an odd size that nothing seems to be a perfect fit.
These also fit pretty well:
Azone shoes are absurdly iffy, I've discovered (and some kinds are prone to fall apart when touched) but these white sandals are literally the best fit I've discovered for my ToYous:
They need to be eased on, but once they're in place, they are the perfect size. However, other 1/6 Azone shoes have given me nothing but trouble, including, sadly, most kinds of heels.
