I seem to have totally forgotten that I already own a Character Model Original Doll and that I've even reviewed one. However, Hikaru has always held a special place in my heart. I love dolls that are 1/1.
This Hikaru doll could be a part of Misaki's cosplay. She is 29cm tall, based on SAJ body.
All Character Model Original Dolls seem to involve a DIY element, and, as you see on the back of the box, there's a lot for me to do!
I didn't realise at first that I have to cut plastic tubes in order to put them on Hikaru's wrists - otherwise the boxing gloves are too loose. The deformed ring below is the headgear, but you have to make holes in it to attach the red cord decoration. I'm not sure if I was right when I cut off the little black protruding elements, anyway, that made my task much easier.
After assembling, Hikaru looks like this.
I have a feeling that the headgear should be partly hidden under her hair. Unfortunately, the "wings" won't stay apart and they resemble horns.
Frankly speaking, I don't like her face, it's quite different from her original design. Bicoloured eyes look interesting though.
Now she's ready to fight!
