well, here she is, not perfect, but all right, even so.

she seems to be a custom collaboration between KOTOBUKIYA and OBITSU.

while her legs, arms and internal spinal frame are all standard OBITSU of the day,
the head and soft vinyl bust/lower torso halves are clearly KOTO originals.

the head has a captive shaft that slots into the OBITSU 27's hollow neck,

-with the OBITSU's usual eye hook and retaining bar absent-

- but otherwise, she ends up looking and feeling like just another typical OBITSU 27-based character doll,
save for her unusually-endowed bust-line and somewhat curvier lower torso,
complete with light anatomical accuracy of the personal region.

that said, her KOTOBUKIYA-sourced endowments proved far too generous for my own tastes,
and so i ported her over to a more reasonably-sized M-bust OBITSU i had tucked away.

among other things, her Sailor-Blouse looks far less strained on her now;

she actually looks remarkably charming in this evening dress;

and my precious Mikuru, in Tamaki's Sailor Suit, looks, well, Simply Precious!!

i found that one of the blouse sleeves was badly stained from something, so i had to remove them,
replacing them with long sleeves, -which i prefer anyway- in the closest shade of pink i could manage to scare up
to match that of the blouse;

Nice work replacing the sleeves. That must have been challenging. Looks good; I would never know that it was an alteration.

Agreed, Tamaki looks quite charming in her evening gown.
They're not dolls, they're action figures!
Thanks. it was actually fairly easy for me, so far as this kind of work generally goes...

Anyway, these two get along quite well, despite being from very different grades;
