I couldn’t be more excited to be creating this very post! This past week, my dream ball jointed doll arrived in the mail! Even though I received Miyoami (MYOU 1/4 Delia) in the mail in February, this doll was actually my 1st BJD purchase. Seeing as how this doll was made-to-order and came directly from the company, I had to wait quite awhile for her arrival. Since 2015, I have always wanted to own a LUTS ball jointed doll from Korea…and now I do! Welcome my LUTS Kid Delf Muhwa to my dollie family; Yoko!
After browsing Japanese girl names, I came across one that instantly pulled at my heart strings on Nameberry.. Yoko means “good girl”. This is such a fitting name for her as she looks so sweet and innocent. I chose the Muhwa sculpt because of her full lips, larger nose and sweet eye expression. She just stood out to me amongst all the others.
The Kid Delf line of BJDs that LUTS offers is in the 1/4 doll scale range. However, there is a new Type 5 Girl body that is available, which is a body type with “chubbier” limbs. I absolutely love it! I love the look of her, without having the issues of finding clothing to fit her. I will be doing a size comparison between Yoko and Miyoami soon, as they are so very different from one another. I intended for these girls to be sisters, but I don’t think that will work out. I plan to create a backstory for these two, to be posted to my site later.
My experience with LUTS brand has been a positive one, with a few things I wished were different in regards to their customer service and correspondence. Nevertheless, I’d be happy to purchase from them again and I am sure my Yoko isn’t going to be the last.
I have posted my box opening video with commentary (so no speedy video!) for you all along with Yoko’s first Dollie Dressup. I can’t wait to create more videos with my new BJDs!
