Is She A Japanese? – ToraFugu, the New Exotic Sybarite

After the début of Inque (African) and Raja (Indian) a few months ago, Superfrock has announced another exotic Sybarite - Torafugu. Tora-Fugu means “Tiger Blowfish” in Japanese, so I suppose it suggested that she is a Japanese girl. However, as an Asian myself, I do not see substantial elements on her face to be an Asian girl. I do not mean those stereotypes of Asian’s feature - slender eyes with single eye lips. She is just not oriental enough to me!

Honestly, when I first saw the HOT HOT Inque’s prototype pictures on Angelic Dreamz, I thought that she was an exotic S.E. Asian or someone from Hawaii, Tahiti etc. ( my review on Inque). I was kind of surprised that she is actually designed as an African. Similarly, if Raja has no bindi on her forehead, or her name is not so Indian, I could not relate her as an Indian at all!

7 in a Roll of Haute Doll’s Exclusive:
If my memory serves me right, Tora Fugu is the 7th Haute Doll magazine’s exclusive of Sybarite – Sureal (LE100), Sabbatha (LE95) Skye (LE95) in 2005, Couture Savage (LE350) in 2006, Couture Salon (LE250) in 2007, Couture Swallow (LE250) in 2008 (I am lucky enough to have bought almost all of them starting from Skye!), and then now Tora Fugu (LE100) in 2009.

Sold Out But Without Price Info Yet:
This LE100 Asian girl is sold out in the first day of pre-ordering. However, the available day and retail price are not yet known at this point. It is the usual practice of Superfrock that there are only 1 or 2 sneak peep pictures of the prototype available. Then, collectors have to make their purchase decision by very limited information before they are all gone.

Below is what is described in Haute Doll website (http://www.hautedoll.com/) about the styling and the possible accessories that Tora Fugu would come with. Again, there is no picture of the lower half of this Asian girl such as her skirt, stocking and shoes etc. for the time being.

Modern, yet richly cultural, exotic, yet steeped in technology, her personal world and existence is a thing of great beauty.

They latest Sybarite offering by Superfrock, Fugu is named after the exotic Tora-fugu, the most poisonous of all Diodon, we present for your delectability, the debut vixen. No ordinary fish, Fugu chose for her debut a simple, yet deceptively intricate gown of coarse weave natural material, piped and lined in satin with a hint toward the art form, legs and cork, embroidery and "leather" platform sandals finish off her neutral inner core.

Black choppy hair upon a sleek and regimented base leaves this girl making you wonder how deep it gets. Like the star of the water and the willow world that place exotic wigs upon their sleeky scraped back hair to present themselves in an image of ancient beauty.

Fugu comes with her ultra-fabulous coat which resembles the coat of the exotic black gibbon, the monkey coat. Pencil thin brows, red red lips and with her tiny set of chopsticks, this girl is ready to take you to a far away exoticism.
