 I have to say, I am very impressed! ^__^  I ordered Huntress from Lair of the Octopus (a site that specialises in 1/6 size action figures) and she shipped the next day, and arrived safely today.  Very good service, and since they are UK based there was no waiting for import and Parcelfarce, or anything like that. 

She is every bit as amazing in person as she looked in the promotional pictures! ^__^  I haven't put her in her fancy armour yet, since I don't have anywhere suitable to display her at the moment.  But, since she is a doll, she is going to get a proper set of box opening pictures. ;)

Yay shipping box!

More under the cut! )More under the cut! )More under the cut! )More under the cut! )

The detail in her face- really amazing stuff!  I'm 99% sure that her face is based on a real person- she reminds me of an actress, but I can't for the life of me think what her name is.  But, the eyes and the lips have been done so well that it's not just a creepy passing resemblance thing- she actually looks like a living person.  The only thing that spoils the illusion a little is her hair, which- while it's very soft- still has the typical 'doll' flyaways.  I'm hoping I'll be able to improve them with some styling later on.

Overall, though- she's very impressive!  I can't wait to get a proper case for her to live in (since the sillicone skin means she'll pick up dust like nobody's business), and then I can get the armour on her and play around properly!

All she needs now is a name.  I'm not going to rush it, though, because I want to find a good one that will suit her properly.  So, it needs to be something suitably 70s/80s fantasy novel-ish, but not so cheesy that it makes me feel uncomfortable. :P
Suggestions will be welcome.

I can't wait for Lady Death to arrive, now. ^__-  She's still on pre-order, but at least I know that I'll get one when they start shipping!

In Other News:
I had a fun day re-organising my finances, partly because of this lovely lady, and partly because our water bill arrived.  We pay it yearly, so it's always good for a laugh when it shows up. -__-;  Mind you, it is nice to actually be able to afford stuff now, and not melt into a puddle of complete panic every time a new bill lands on the door mat. >_>;  

I also handled Rambo for a little while, and watered my bonsai trees.  Oh, and I set up a new twitter account, because my personal one (@she_man) is probably not entirely work appropriate.  ^__-.  So, I set up @AegisImmemorial, which I will use to promote my book once it is finished.  I'm still assuming that it will be self-published at this point, so having a proper, more appropriately named feed for it is probably a good idea!
