Becoming a Real Little Girl

For Miyu-chan’s birthday (10/31), I decided to give her a bit of surgery.

Miyu was made before UV coating was standard, so even though she lives a rather sheltered life, her skin had become a bit “tanned.” It had to be ex-foliated (ie sanded down) before showing its former radiance.  And since we were at the shop anyways, why not smooth down her seams as well?  I got all of the tools, and then had to wait for a sunny day, which finally arrived late last week.

After covering the operating table with a protective cloth, and arranging all of the tools, I looked at Miyu.  We were both terrified.  There were so many things that could go wrong.  Why was I doing this?

“Why?  Why are you doing this?”

“I’m not sure…  I don’t know exactly, but I think the procedure will help you become more of real little girl.”

“A real little girl?”

“Well, of course we know that you’re already real; but perhaps you can become even more real.”

“A real little girl…”  She paused in contemplation for quite some time.  “OK.  OK;  I want to do it.”

I began slowly and worked as carefully as possible.  She was asleep for nearly 36 hours.  There were some harrowing moments, but in the end everything fell into place.  Her face is still a bit pale; which is to say I haven’t done her make-up yet.  For the moment, she’s still getting used to her new body.  I’m quite pleased with how it’s turned out – Miyu is indeed becoming even more real.

Going to the Kenji Murata exhibit in Ginza yesterday, I found a very cute little pumpkin for her near the station.
