Finally here.

I finally got the two Custom House dolls I had been waiting for since December 31st!

I wasn't sure how I'd feel about them after waiting for so long and being so frustrated but of course I fell in love with them.

Picking them up wasn't without problems though. First of all Custom House hadn't marked them down like they usually do so I had to pay 150$ in tax and customs! I think it's completely unfair for a 377$ parcel!

This ment I had to go to the post office to pick the up - and pay ransome to get them. I'm disabled and and can only walk very little and it hurts to stand and wait so I have this eletrical 3 wheeled moped thingy. So off I want the 3½km to the post office - and just as I was in the middle of the door my moped broke down. Sob!

I managed to get my parcel but then had to sit an hour and wait for help. All this also ment that my moped had to go away to get fixed and they didn't have another one I could borrow so it's quite a big problem for me. I can't go out at all without something to drive on. I was told today though that it can't be fixed but I'll get a new one - wich could take a while.

I was heartbroken about it but now I know I'll get a new one - even if it's going to be really really hard waiting for it. I just hope they'll be fast.

So for several days I didn't feel happy about getting my dolls at all. They still managed to creep into my heart some way though.

Here's Kristoffer. He's 12 years old. He often seems very mischievous but he's actually a really sweet guy. He just have such a warm heart.

And here he is with Ilvara (DZ Feilian to the left) and Veronice. (Tanned Narae with Narin face-plate)

This is Pipaluk his little sister. She's 7 years old and she's very good at looking sweet and innocent but she's not that sweet at all. Most of all she's selfish and good at manipulating people. I had bought two 6/7 wigs for her but they were both too small - wich is wierd because Kristoffer's wig is the same size. So I had to give her a temporary one.

Here's Pipaluk with their smalles sister. Her name is Krusemynte and she's 5 years old. I have had her for a while. (She's the reason I wanted more Custom House dolls.) She's a very sweet girl. She's also very naive and believe everything she's told. She mostly speak in questions.

Kristoffer is a Custom House Little Junior Icarus, Pipaluk is a Petite Ai Gabriel and Krusemynte is a Ange Ai Uri. I have to say though that I would never ever get another Custom House doll. Not only because of the long and frustrating wait but also I'm not so pleased with the quallety of the tow last dolls. Kristoffer is fairly okay even though he doesn't feel so nice as Krusemynte but Pipaluk is NOT worth the money at all. Not only does the Petite Ais not pose nearly as well as Ange Ais even though the are much much more expensive but there's something wrong with her legs and knees. Take a look at a picture of the knees.

I have to say that if I had know about these issues I would never have ordered from Custom House at all.

On a brighter side I have ordered a PukiFee! I'm so happy and excited. I ordered a Shiwoo Boris fullset. I can't wait to get it. *Does a happy dance.*


  1. Congrats to your cute little ones!!! I'm so happy that they've been able to charm you in spite of their flaws and in spite of all the troubles you've had getting them (both with Customhouse and your moped). I hope you'll get a new moped soon! And as for CH I think most people are REALLY annoyed and disappointed with them right now.


  2. Thanks Annefia. Yeah I'm such a softie I can't help but love them. LOL

    As for Custom House I'd advise people to not buy from them until they clean up their act.

  3. I know you're a softie, that's why I love you! LOL (After all, with you around I'm not the only softie. LOL)
