Repairing a Petite Blythe Tsuki Usagi

Longtime fans of this blog will know that I have a soft-spot for anything Heian: and that I love miniatures/dolls. Predictably, I wanted to add the mini doll Petite Blythe Tsuki Usagi プチブライスつきうさぎ to my collection.

Petite Blythe Tsuki Usagi  プチブライスつきうさぎ with LPS Blythe Body

She’s an adorable little doll, about 11cm high (the size of Littlest Pet Shop mini Blythes and Little Dals,) with a theme from the fairy tale Taketori Monogatari (sometimes better known as the story of Princess Kaguya, although this isn’t the official title.) Tsuki Usagi- “Moon Rabbit”- even comes in a little canister shaped like (and decorated as) a little stalk of bamboo.

Her clothes- although simplified- are for their size an astonishingly accurate portrayal of the Heian-era “itsutsu-ginu-kouchiki” junihitoe worn by noblewomen. She even has a little white kosode with red nagabakama, and a tiny little fan!

But apparently, there was a production flaw her model: the paint used for her bloomers seems to interact badly with the plastic, and cause it to crumble, right out of the box. :(

Fortunately for her, a never-deboxed LPS mini Blythe was on hand, to, um, donate a similarly-sized body to her. (This involved slicing down the new body’s huge neck-peg and sanding down her neck/shoulders/peg quite a good bit, so it’s no fix for amateurs- but it did work!)

The new body:
