Snow Black Princess Aika: Longest doll wait in Azone dolls history (with video)

Today, I'm reviewing the Azone doll that required the longest wait in the history of Azone dolls: The Dollybird limited Snow Black Princess Aika.
Snow Black Princess Aika was announced about a year ago at the same time as Snow White Princess Aika. Snow White Princess Aika was a normal released and came out in normal time after a pre-order period and a short wait. Snow Black Princess Aika however, as a dollybird limited doll, was only available through preorder on Hobby Japan. I decided not to take a chance and to order her as soon as possible so I did so on February 26th, 2016. The pre-order however was opened until the end of June and the doll was supposed to be released this February. It is very unusual for Azone dolls to have such a long preorder. Groove also had special pre-order for Pullip Alura at the same time and even that wasn't all that long in comparison.
The Snow Black version of Aika was often to be seen at the Azone store in Akihabara but I was a bit worried about where mine actually was. Then one day, months after the pre-order was closed, I received an email asking for payment. Then again nothing for mnomonths then again about two weeks ago an email stating that the dolls would be shipped on the 17th. I actually received an email about the tracking on the 18th and she arrived later that same evening.

Snow Black Princess Aika is probably one of the most beautiful doll in the Otogi no Kuni series. She has the particularity to have a sort of orange hair made from strand of mixed colors ranging from brown to pink. She also has a smile that shows her teeth, she is my only azone doll with that sort of face.
She is wearing a very detail outfit with many different layer that allow her to have several possible outfit combination if needed. She comes with a basket just the same as the Snow White Aika but in a black version. I think these two doll really look great together.
