I purchased my first doll hoping to avoid purchasing Volks SD Nono. I was doing pretty well, too, until I attended Dolpa and saw Nono for sale at the Sumika table. That first day, the other three standard dolls were purchased immediately, but still the one I wanted was left behind. When I arrived on Sunday and the doll was still there, my resistance failed. Despite the fact that it wasn’t the best time to buy something so expensive (and there were numerous problems during the purchase), I came home with a new doll in the “big” size I said I’d never buy.
I love Nono’s mold as much as I had kinda hoped I would. She has such massive, very expressive eyes, and I love her tiny mouth~ I hope to have her makeup repainted to bring out a different and perhaps more unique expression, but that will have to wait. She was very difficult to decide a name for–although I liked “Mimi” from the start, I thought it seemed weird to have a Nono named Mimi, as there is a Volks mold called Mimi. In the end, though, that was the name that stuck. I couldn’t be more satisfied with this doll! ♥
