A Tale of Two Namus
#1
My first love in the Pullip family has always been Taeyang. My first doll was a Tae, and until recently I've had more Taeyangs than any other doll. (Pullip has recently taken the lead, but probably not forever.)

Like many people, I've always found Namu strange-looking at best, and entirely creepy at worst. I could definitely understand why Pullip upgraded to Taeyang, and I never figured on owning a Namu.

Then last year Sinderellah posted a bunch of older dolls on the sales thread, including these two. This was her photo:

I've always found Wolf to be the cutest of the Namus (I love his eyebrows), and I just found this photo so endearing. I resisted for several months, but finally made an inquiry about pricing. Sinderellah's in Canada, and it cost as much to ship one doll as two, and these two looked like good friends, so even though the only thing I found attractive about Trunk was his skin tone, I ended up getting them both.

They arrived during the summer, and lived in a shoe box for about six months. I always figured on getting them customized, but it took me awhile to get around to it. Finally, in March, they look a trip to the very talented myufish. I asked her if she could add some freckles and eye shading to Wolf and if she could completely customize Trunk and maybe make him look less Namu-y.

She definitely went above and beyond! Meet the newly transformed Francois-Phillippe (Wolf) and Edgar (Trunk).

Aren't they adorable? They're like Taeyang's adorkable cousins.

The Taeyangs aren't so sure about this...

I still want to find a better wig for Edgar (it's hard to find one that I like that also doesn't cover his awesome eyebrows), but overall I think they're the cutest Namus ever. Thank you, myufish!

They both came out really cute, but Edgar's smile is so charming!

Oh, they’re very cute! I don’t often like Namu’s but customized ones seem to appeal to me more, and these are very sweet looking!

Wow! What a transformation. I'm not a Namu fan -- the reasons you stated, strange-looking or creepy -- but these two ARE really cute! Edgar's little smirk!!! Heart If Namus looked like that I'm sure they'd have been much more popular. I'm happy for you -- congrats on your 'adorkable' new additions! grin
