When I got home today, I had a fantastic surprise waiting for me. My Tata's order!! It hadn't even tracked. And I never heard from Tata's after emailing last week :\ but I have clothes!
I bought two pairs of (fake) leather pants, one SD13 for Alex, and one 70cm for Ryuji first, if they fit, Israfel or Gambit. A wife beater for Wolverine, a couple other shirts for anyone (meaning Alex) and two sweaters for Alex (because lets face it, he gets all the clothes).
By some miracle the pants fit him. I mean, it's a serious miracle...nothing ever fits him. The sweaters are awesome, and because 2.5 is my current obsession, he's wearing a whole new outfit and looks amazing.
The pants I bought intending them to be Ryuji's don't fit him...they were so small they wouldn't come close to snapping. They didn't fit Israfel either, even though he's a Hound and they're "Hound" size. Though he's a Pure Hound, with a giant ass and even bigger penis...so I'm not surprised. They did fit Gambit, pretty well, so that's nice. They're perfect for him too, with zippers on the side they kinda look X-Menish.
Wolverine's shirt is too big (boo) but it'll work until I find one that fits. I got all motivated while trying clothes on everyone....Ryuji got a decent outfit after...the entire time I've owned him >.< AND I am gluing the sideburns on Logan finally! I'm still not sure I like his face up, but if I don't, I might as well ruin it by putting the glue on! So hopefully he'll be ok. I'm really worried that the head is just too big....I have a thing about bobbles. It would be such a shame too, this head is perfect.
So on to Alex 2.5.
He's having an identity crisis. I had always intended him to be the "bridge" Alex between II and III (hence the 2.5ness). Now with his new face up I don't get that anymore....he looks more the in-between I and II. Which would make him 1.5. Arg. I had kind of wanted him to be a timeline floater...maybe he needs a new name. What did they call John Hurt in Doctor Who?? XD
In any case you'll probably see him a lot in the next week or so until I get a new flavor of the month, so there will be plenty of time for me to figure him out.
I almost wish I'd waited until tomorrow...cause then he'd have new clothes. :\\ The funny thing is when I was taking these I was wishing I'd had the Tatas's stuff...and it was at home the whole time.
Strike a pose! XD
These are the best photos I've ever taken of this doll. He practically made my camera break the last time I tried D:
