Boy do I feel like an idiot. I thought I had posted this already. I spotted these photos as I was backing up a bunch of images when it occurred to me that I never blogged about them. DOH!

I meant to post this on March 3rd, for Girl’s Day, a Japanese celebration called Hinamatsuri.

Isn’t that just wonderful? A national holiday devoted to displaying and celebrating these gorgeous dolls and its history. As a kiddie, I’ve seen these dolls displayed in museums and have always wanted one (or two, or three, or a whole army of them).

It’s nice that I finally have a set to call my own (miniatures do have its perks).

The set seems to be in 1:6? or even 1:10? Well, they’re dolls, so I guess I can say they’re very large dolls for 1:12.

I purchased this Re-Ment set via Amazon a while back. I don’t quite remember how much I paid for them, but I think it was less than $15 with free shipping. Unfortunately, the thing with Re-Ment is that they only make a limited amount of most of their sets and after the batches are sold out, that’s it. This set was the second version of the Hina dolls and I snatched it up pretty quickly. While it’s no longer available on Amazon (can’t seem to find it), they’re still available on Ebay if you’re interested.

I wouldn’t be surprised if Re-Ment keeps coming out with new Hinamatsuri sets every few years. They’re pretty dang popular (and awesome).

If you’re wondering how much the legit, handmade 1:1 scale dolls (irony?) actually cost, a quick search on Amazon confirms that it costs several limbs and your first born child. I think I’m just going to be satisfied with the mini versions. 😛

In other news, I’ve been neck deep in tax stuff (trying to sort out all the sales and inventory is a pain in the butt!), so I guess I’ll see you after April 15th if I survive…

        I use one on the mantle of my Christian Hacker house as a sculpture. You can see it on Flickr. CM

    It is so difficult to find Asian miniatures. I don’t mean made in Asia, but the style.
