the lati dilemma of the day  
Someone HAD to mention the new basics T_________T I'm in love with them! LOOK AT BENNY WOAH. lol. What to do. I figure, since I have just enough, I could either get two basic Lati Yellows with face-up or get the limited Lea with all options x: What to do. I think most people would tell me to get the two dolls instead, but at the same time, I like Lea & Lami (leaning towards Lea right now) O: BUT, I don't know what I'd do with her option legs =-=;; If I did get two basics instead, I'd get Lami and Kuroo ^__^ Here's the price breakdown:

Basic Kuroo w. face-up 215
Basic Lami w. face-up 215
Shipping 58
Total 488

Limited Lea FULL SET 420
Shipping 50
Total 470

Unfortunately I don't have enough for Lea and a basic, even if I just get the bare minimum for Lea and no face-up for the basic /: So what to do? Help!

Well, I don't think more is necessarily better when it comes to dollies. If I sold all my Limited Latis and just got basics instead I could have....well, let's just say I could have a lot. But I LOVE the girls I have to pieces, and I wouldn't trade them for basics.

The basics will come around again. The limiteds won't.

It all comes down to a matter of who you want the most. I know that's no help at all, but it's the best advice I've got!

That's what I've been thinking. I could always get the basics another round when/if I don't like the limiteds during that order period :P We'll see!

Totally agree with Allison - if the limited girly is what you REALLY want, then go for her. If you end up regretting not getting her and go hunting on the secondary market, the price almost always skyrockets. :x Basics will always be available later on.

One more thing too, not sure if you've added that in - face-ups on basics are an added option, and will tack on an extra $35 to each dolly. (Face-up is included in the base price for specials, but not basics.)

Speaking of double dollies, though...I'm currently scrambling to scrounge up enough for a second girl. Miel says that she wants to bring her friend Coco home with her! (Hah!) I'd be happy with the basic, but even happier with the limited - the ears are just too awesome. I figure if I can round up at least half the amount, Josh won't shoot me if I put the other half on credit until I can scrape together enough to cover the rest. I hope. :P (My Elf El has sold on layaway, so that'll pay off Miel - if my Rong sells, that'll cover a second dolly!) $5 down, a whole lot more to go! XD

Oops! That should say face-up instead of wigs :P But you're right. If Lea's not for me, I think she'd be a better sell later on x: Also, the limiteds have ELF EARS. Haha x3 Good luck bringing home a second dolly! You've still got some time x3

Oh for sure, she'd definitely be a better sell - even basics tend to go fast on the secondary market though. (But definitely not marked up like limiteds can be...kicking myself for not stocking up on the Flower Garden dolls a couple of years ago, haha.) I have a BIG thing for elf ears, so that's why I'm aiming for the Story of a Fairy Coco rather than the basic. XD I figure it would be suitable, though. Miel deserves a like-sized, elf-eared counterpart...then they'll be like my elf Ante girls. ;3

Thanks! I'm going to try to talk Josh into it if it's looking like Rong won't sell before orders close. He MIGHT go for it, on the premise that all funds from Rong selling go straight to the credit card). :P

Ahh, I LOVE the Flower garden girls! Too bad I jumped on the wagon a bit late :P I hope Rong sells so you can get your dolly!
