Noumi was our first MDD, and oddly enough our second most expensive doll. Getting her was a bit of a journey–we entered the US lottery and lost, then entered the international lottery and lost again! We ended up getting one on Yahoo Japan for a pretty decent price, but it was still leaps and bounds above her retail. We snagged a Beatrice right after, and even she was cheaper!
Because of how hard she was to get, Noumi holds a pretty special place in our collection. But the MDD body is incredibly difficult to work with, so she doesn’t get much time out… even though she has more outfits just for her than any of our other dolls! We have a new MDD coming soon though, so Noumi is going to have to share. Not just clothing, but bodies too until we can get another mini one for the new girl!
Noumi’s been begging for a photoshoot for quite some time now, and the other day we finally decided to take her out and about! Posing her was a challenge–I’ve worked with stiff joints on the DDdy, but loose joints make some poses simply impossible! But Noumi is a very charming girl, and her personality shone through even with these setbacks. She ended up having a lot of fun in the garden, and even made some new bumblebee friends, so check out the gallery to see what she got up to!
