After several attempts to buy at least one Character Model Original Doll, I had to content myself with the first in the line, Kurumi.
Character Model was a series of resin kits, probably distibuted as a magazine supplement, which occasionally included doll kits. However, the first three dolls didn't have to be assembled.
The Kurumi dolls that I see in the Internet are usually kept sealed in the box, so I decided to unpack this one.
The doll has a standard Super Action Jenny body. The boots are too massive and loose for her small feet.
I like Kurumi's beautiful blue eyes and her 90's looks.
Maybe the hairline is too bright, but it looks neat.
The contents of the box are a typical SAJ stand, plastic gloves, arm warmers (or, rather, sleeves) and... a bucket?!
Here is what Kurumi looks like when she wears the accessories.
As for the bucket, it is, in fact, a maid headband! You have to cut it out from this piece of plastic, so at least one DIY element is present.
It doesn't look very convincing on her head (and can't be secured properly).
In general, Kurumi is a very good-looking doll, but there is nothing special about her, as she is basically similar to any other Takara poseable doll.
