Back in 2009 when I first got into the BJD hobby, my very first doll was a Leekeworld-D Bijou whom I had named Shigure. I had a lot of fun posing and taking pictures of her, and I do believe that she helped me improve my photography.
A little after 3 years now, as my doll family expanded
exponentially, it became increasingly apparent that I wasn’t playing with her anymore. I still liked the doll character and name Shigure, but it was clear that I preferred playing with Natsumi my other tinies more. I deliberated over it for a while but I finally decided to put my Bijou up for sale on the DoA marketplace. There wasn’t any interest for over 2 months but at last, someone who was willing to adopt her came forward. While I’m sad to see her go, I know I would prefer that she be given more love and attention by someone else.
This remains my favorite picture of her:
Byebye, Bijou. >___<
This is not the end of Shigure, however!
Meet the new Shigure, now a Volks YoSD Kanon! ^___^ There’s nothing I can say about her besides SOOOO CUTEEEEEE. I bought her just a while before Volks announced that they would be re-releasing Neon and Kanon. While I think the price I paid was very reasonable during the period when the re-release hadn’t been announced, I’m still a little -___- over it. Never mind, at least I got her cute default ponytail wig too! …which stains, by the way. ^^;
This is why I like light-colored wigs more…
I’m still pondering on who to send her to for a faceup, but more importantly, because Kanon looks a lot younger than Bijou, the planned ages among my tinies are now a little messed up, LOL. She actually looks younger than Natsumi and Midori, and that’s strange because Shigure is supposed to be the eldest! ^^;
