|Angel Street Zazean|
One of the things that especially caught my attention was the existence of some of the lower-cost options. I was also debating picking up an elf doll, and thought that this guy, Angel Street's Zazean, would be a good choice. One of the dealers happened to have one in stock, and while in many ways I wish I'd pre-ordered instead (the in stock doll was the introductory LE one, so he cost significantly more than the standard, and the in-stock version was in a cream white resin, which doesn't really fit with my other dolls), that did mean that he was home within the week.
|Zed was actually the first doll that I|
The first thing that I noticed upon taking this doll out of his box is his lightness - he weighs significantly less than any other doll of this size that I own. This is one feature that I've found most of the lower-end BJDs to have in common, and is one thing I try to mention when people ask if there are actually quality differences between the dolls. That lightness isn't necessarily a bad thing, of course, but it is a difference that I think is worth pointing out (I was surprised - although not necessarily disappointed - at how light he was because I'd had people insist that there was zero difference in resin quality/type across the price ranges).
|His current wig|
Even though I've been on the fence about this doll since the beginning (whenever I talk about thinning the herd, "I suppose I could sell the white elf" is where I start), this doll has a certain something to him that means he's stuck around, and probably will continue to stick around. He just has that much character (and looks that good in elaborate fantasy outfits!).
