An now for a review that is slightly different!
Bambi Crony is a Ball-Jointed-Doll shop based out of Souel, Korea. I have heard great things about their products and decided to check them out. I had been in search of Tea Party and Rocking Horse style shoes that would fit my soon to arrive Obitsu. Bambi Crony had both styles in stock.
Of course I didn't just stop at two pairs of shoes!
I purchased a total of four items from Bambi Crony.
✓ [BZ] Ribbon Maryjane - White
✓ [BZ] R-H Maryjane - Pink
✓ [BB] CW-007 (Marron Cream)
✓ Amaryllis 005, 16mm
Since I ordered a pair of Mako Eyes, the order was delayed due to the fact the eyes are made once ordered. Mako Eyes sends the items to Bambi Crony the order is processed and shipped. Since Mako's eyes are extremely popular this process took longer than what I or Bambi Crony expected.
When my order did arrive I was happy to see that it was extremely well packed!
On top of my items lay three postcard freebies featuring Bambi Crony's Ball-Jointed-Dolls. Coupled to the positively sweet way everything was packed the postcard only enhanced the cuteness factor.
I was excited to see that each item in my order had been carefully sent in its own packaging before being encompassed by the protective bubble wrap casing.
Let's start with the freebies!
Mako Eyes is a Ball-Jointed-Doll Eye company based out of South, Korea. Their Urethane and UV protected eyes are extremely popular within the BJD community, and now I have a pair of my own!
For my first doll character I really wanted a pair of brown eyes. While it was difficult to finally settle on a style from Mako Eyes, I ordered the Amarylliys in the colorway 006. I wanted to try the 16 mm size for my doll first, as it was the suggested size for a "cute wide-eyed look". Here is the result.
Using the default Obitsu Mizuki head that came with my 50cm Obitsu body, I placed the eyes into the head. This was surprisingly easy with the default head! The eyes were flawless. The color is especially charming because under certain light they have a brown and purple hue. The eyes are clear and captivating. I am so impressed with the quality and price that I will be purchasing all my eyes from Mako eyes. I can hardly wait to see how they look on my Misha Obitsu head!
Mary Jane Shoes
These Bellezza sized Mary Jane shoes are exactly what I had been in search of! My doll is a lolita and thus I had to get her a pair of tea party style shoes to accompany her Sweet Lolita look.
The shoes were carefully packed in a plastic bag and a Bambi Crony branded structure. The shoes are constructed of PVC and resemble the style of shoe that I wear myself. I decided on white.
The silver heart buckles and the gold Bambi Crony emblem only add to the charm and realism of the shoes. The PVC bows are exceptionally sturdy. The shoes feature even stitching and the bottom of the shoes have tread! This is especially great since it adds to my girl's stability when on her feet.
At the time I wanted this hairstyle for a doll character I created named Lydia. I wanted a pretty reddish/brown color, but with simple curls. Large curls would mean for easy wig maintenance.
The wig was carefully placed in it's own netting, realistic cardboard ring and a plastic bag.
The wig also featured a paper form in order to ensure it would maintain it's shape. The netting that serves as the base of the wig was extremely well constructed. No loose hairs escaped from this wig.
The spiraling curls are just too precious! The wig is extremely soft and complements the white skin of the Obitsu and the Mako eyes wonderfully. The wig cap is snug enough that a wig cap is not needed if so desired. I will most likely purchase another wig in the future in a different style.
Rocking Horse Shoes
I ordered the Bellezza size Rocking Horse shoes in pink.
These shoes are beyond precious. The shoes are expertly constructed like the Ribbon Mary Jane shoes. This pair of shoes possesses the even stitching, tread and sturdiness just like the other pair of shoes. I love this because it means Bambi Crony has consistency in their items. These shoes also feature the heart buckles and gold Bambi Crony brand at the inner base of the shoes. I love the notch!
The platform nature of these shoes is true to the lolita style of Rocking Horse shoes. I am over the moon in love with these shoes! I cannot get enough of them.
Unfortunately these shoes do not fit my Obitsu. While they are technically the same length as the Ribbon Mary Jane, the low ride in the front does not allow for me to slightly stuff the ends. Also the 1/3 size is too big for my 50cm Obitsu body and looks poorly fitted.
4 / 5
The shipping is international, so I did not expect it to be quick. Due to the Mako Eyes being behind in orders it forced my order from Bambi Crony to be delayed.
All of the items were expertly packed and the branding was beyond adorable! Every item had it's own package and everything arrived safely and with expert presentation.
5 / 5
All of the products purchased were extremely well constructed and of an exceptional quality!
4 / 5
While I completely understand unforeseen circumstances with external companies some communication of this delay would have been extremely appreciated. Communication with this company overall was quick to respond with any email inquires.
I am beyond satisfied with my order from Bambi Crony and would highly recommend the products I purchased. I cannot wait to order some more!
I hope you all enjoyed this review and remember to Stay Frilly !
