Meri didn’t actually get a deboxing party, since I opened her at the Volks store, but here are some pictures of her in the outfit she came with, plus the wig that just arrived for Sowelu but ssh Meri’s wearing it! She’s so pretty, augh! Minion and Yuugi kept trying to help with the brand new thing, and kept getting flung across the living room.
How do I know if my doll is sd13, sd16 etc? Mainly in female dolls. If it's body type, if you would show/link examples then that would be amazing (of course, you don't have to though) Thank you!

SD, SD13, and SD16 (and MSD, SDC, Yo-SD, etc.) are acronyms originally
created by Volks to refer to their various Super Dollfie sizes, although
the BJD community has adopted the “MSD” and “SD” terms to refer to more
general size ranges.
SD is usually used by the doll community at large to refer to the 60 cm
range of dolls in general – Volks’ actual SDs (usually referred to by
collectors as SD10s) are closer to 58 cm.
Volks’ SD13 size would be what most would call “SD,” falling into the
58-62 cm range depending on whether the SD13 in question is a boy or
girl and whether said doll has normal legs or long legs.
The SD16s would be slightly taller than the SD13s – the girls are
roughly 62 cm, and Yukinojou, the only SD16 boy released so far, is
around 65 cm.
And finally, the SD17s (just to complete the series ) are the tallest – only boys have been released so far, and they are around 65-66 cm.
I really wanted to take Evie out somewhere for photos but it’s just so damn hot at the moment I just made do with some unimaginative garden shots x_x
I’m still torn about her eyes. I love the green, it’s perfect but I didn’t expect the pupils (which are brown instead of black) to have as much of a red tint to them. They’ll do for now, until I’ve got the money to jump on an order for new ones.
