Tour of the Pacific Rim!!

First Stop on the Tour!

I'm done college, at least for now. I will walk in
May but now I have more time to post doll stuff! Yeah!!

This is my first post of what will be a monthly post
of Asian dolls and action figures. I have done some posts
on the Asian dolls in my collection before but
I want this one to be different. I will try to show them in what
I think is traditional costumes that I have found and this post
will also be a precursor to a photo stores with Asian dolls.
If I am getting it wrong in custom, costume of any other aspect,
Please inform me.

I call this doll Kieu. I purchased her from eBay and I don't
know what doll she really is. I think she might have been
Japanese because her original body had bent arms with
palms facing the body. That body is now in the body box!
(I will talk about the body box in a later post) and she
is on a body that I found in the box.

I purchased a lot of different style Asian gowns. This is one
of them. She looks sweet in this picture.

Full gown.

Every now and then there are earthquakes in the
Pacific Rim. Thank goodness it was short!

I love Asian dolls, so I am looking forward to this. I am always afraid I've got the wrong nationality. Are they Chinese, Japanese, etc? Is it wrong to dress a Chinese doll in a Kimono or a Japanese doll in a Qi Pao (spelling?)? So maybe your series will bring me some more enlightenment.

Thanks Vanessa. I am asking some question and getting info in the hopes to do it correctly.
