My Early Christmas Box Opening

My Christmas present arrived yesterday from Camelia Dynasty and I was very surprised by the lovely presentation box it came in.


Inside the box everything was securely and neatly packed.


The free gift was the unicorn horn, which I was very pleased with as I had ordered spare mane and tail inserts to make a fantasy set with either mohair or alpaca.


The blushing was okay, but not fantastic, if I was to purchase another, I would do my own blushing. The other slightly negative thing was the stringing, it was really loose, but that's an easy fix. The horse blanket is very well made and I liked that you could select your colours . . . I chose the navy with white trim, but there were several to choose from.

Overall I am happy with Sage who has been renamed Snowdrift and now with the horn, I have two animals in one. The lovely white horse for my human dolls AND a fantasy unicorn for my Elvin folk! That is, I will have, as soon as I do the mane and tail . . . I'm off to Etsy now to find the right colours. :)

    1. Ha ha! You do need one Sam, think of the possibilities you'd have for a story. :) They come in black too!
      Thanks, I figured it was perfect for a white horse with a few dirty smudges.

  3. Big congrats on the arrival! It didn't take long! The horse / unicorn looks great. I liked the look of this sculpt in the promo photos but to see it in an owner photo, a lot more beautiful than I imagined.

    Are you redoing the hair and mane? Can't wait to see what you end up doing.

    1. No not too long Alasse, but I have to admit not as quick as Iplehouse and Fairyland are moving thesedays.

      I actually purchase another plastic insert set (check out on their website) to make another hair and mane in the fantasy colours, so I can swap them over when I change him to unicorn.

      I've wanted a horse for such a long time and as far as I know CD is the only one that makes them. Ah I think I have already found it. :)

    1. Thanks Nikki. I do hope you find one, it took me ages to find this one and if it hadn't been for Alasse, I think I'd still be looking. :)

    1. Thank you Sharon, I know I will. I am so lucky my hubby is one of those who understands the hobby and has no qualms about me ordering (and often him paying) for these beautiful dolls. :)
