My Dollie Is A Gumiho!

Ok, so I wish I could say my dollie is a gumiho, but I don’t actually own the doll in question.  So the best I CAN say is, I want a dollie that’s a gumiho.  What’s a gumiho you ask?  Oh, well, a gumiho is quite frankly a nine tailed fox.  No, no, seriously.  Have a look at the wiki, excerpt included below.

The gumiho (구미호 / "gu" - nine) (literally "nine tailed fox") is a creature that appears in the oral tales and legends of Korea,[1], and are akin to European fairies. According to those tales, a fox that lives a thousand years turns into a gumiho, like its Japanese and Chinese counterparts (the kitsune and the huli jing). It can freely transform, among other things, into a beautiful girl often set out to seduce men, and eat their liver. There are numerous tales in which the gumiho appears. Several of those can be found in the encyclopedic Compendium of Korean Oral Literature (한국 구비문학 대계).

See?  Ok, so now that you know what a gumiho is, now I’ll tell you why I want one.  Ever since my sister got me hooked on and made me watch this cute Korean drama called “My Girlfriend is a Gumiho”, I’ve just fallen in love with the image of a nine tailed fox.  Don’t get me wrong, I’d probably freak if I saw one in person, I mean that’d be kind of weird, but the girl in the show who was the gumiho was so cute and I’d love to have a little replica of her.  And for 99 dollars I can!  Have a look.  Smile


Isn’t it the cutest thing?!?  I’m seriously in love with this doll.  Created by Camellia Dynasty this gem has a cute face, 9 tales, and is ball jointed, so what’s not to love?  Of course there is the bummer that there were only 50 made worldwide so umm yeah, probably won’t be getting my gumiho, but just being able to look at it will have to do.  I love how if you look through the website they show the fox with bigger “human” dolls and it’s just so cute.  In all honesty I wouldn’t really have a use for an animal doll but I had to share with you guys what I found.  I am just so I awe of it.  Smile

And that is it for this post.  A few more to come, but that will have to wait for now as it’s late and I think I want to go to bed in a bit.  So I will talk to you soon with a new post. Be good until then.  Bye for now.  Smile

Loves ya Red heart,
