Type:Volks (modified) School head B w/ SD13 boy body
Arrival Date: August 2004
Info: Mikah’s head (as well as Thierry) can only be bought by attending one of the Volks company face up classes. Since I couldn’t attend during that time I decided to buy this head through Yahoo Japan. When he arrived I didn’t like how thick his cheeks were. I really wanted another big boy doll, so the cheeks had to go. I bought some soft sandpaper and modified his face to look more masculine. I bought his body later on through Yahoo Japan again. His name is from one of my favoride characters in the book Catspaw by Joan Vinge.
Type: Reel Missing Link head R-01(modified)
Arrival Date: February 2005
Info: When I bought this head it was also modified because of it’s cheeks. Yet again they were too thick. I sanded them down and got good results. He still needs a body which I haven’t gotten to yet. When I do get the chance to buy one it will be a Volks SD body. His name is from The Night Runners Series by Lynn Flewelling.
Type: Volks School head(sweet dreams)A w/AOD vs2 boy body
Arrival Date: November 2008
Info: I got Thierry’s head at Volks NY Dolpa 2 back in 2008. I was able to buy the head by attending their face up class. I got the sleeping head because at the time I’ve never had a closed eyed doll. I’ll definatly get the opened eyed head someday. Thierry’s name comes from the soccer player Thierry Henry.
Type: Volks Sei Tenshi
Arrival Date: July 2008
Info: This little guy makes me smile when I see him. I won him at the Volks NY Dolpa 2. There was a fairy tale contest were you would dress your doll up as a character of the tale. I dressed up Marius as the main character of Hans My Hedgehog and built a rooster for him to sit on. That won me first place and I got to take home this little angel and a glass trophy. Sei Tenshi angels are only given away as prizes for contests and lotteries. They never sell them. Plus if you get one and sell it Volks frowns upon that. I got Agony’s name while watching Addams Family Values.

Arrival Date: May 2010
Info: I bought this big man during the first day of his preorder in February 2010. He was expensive but luckily the layaway option made it easy. I named him “Jake” after one of the characters in a sci-fi book that I love (as noted in his arrival post).
