Goodbye Soo

A little while ago, Luts posted this notice on their website:
"We regret to notify you that we are temporarily suspending to offer Delf(60cm) on LUTS, effective November 15, 2011.
You may buy Delf until November 15, 2011. After November 16, 2011, you won't be able to do.
We will let you know if we resume Delf on LUTS.
We apologize for any inconvenience and we will try more to offer better service.
Yours sincerely,

Now, this would *just* be the "DELF" line - that doesn't include Senior Delf, Junior Delf, Kid Delf, etc - it may be temporary or it may be for good.  A lot of people are speculating that this has to do with the Delf line actually being Cerberus Project sculpts (the other lines are actually made by Luts, not CP) - which means they could go to Fairyland instead maybe like the Minifees did.  But one thing is for sure - no one knows for sure if the Delf dolls will be sold again as they are on Luts.

One thing I've seriously been debating is if I want to borrow money from myself (from my savings account) to buy a Delf "Soo".  I'm normally more interested in MSD sized dolls, I do like other sizes and plan to one day branch out more besides just MSDs, and since I love the Kid Delfs so much, naturally I was curious about the other Delf lines.  When I saw "Soo", the look of her just struck me as a perfect doll to be a big sister for Minette (my Kid Delf "Aru").
The thing is though, I've had a lot of expenses lately.  And I don't mean bad expenses, just, I've been doing some spending for fun on other doll stuff.  I bought a Kid Delf "Cherry" off the DoA marketplace and just paid her layaway off recently, am in the middle of doing a layaway on a Doll Chateau "Bella", bought the Limited Edition set of Kid Delf "Pine" with the "Pine" elf head a little while ago (which means I'll need to get another body soon too), finally got Eva a new body and a proper outfit, bought two Fukubukuro bags from DollHeart, and have bought some other clothes and such.  Not to mention, just in general, I've had a lot of new dolls arrive in a short amount of time.   I was able to justify some of those purchases because they were now-or-never situations (like the LE Pines, and buying a doll secondhand that someone else could come in and buy).  Sure, this is also sort of a now-or-never situation, but I don't know, it just doesn't feel the same, or as justified.  Or maybe it's the price.

So yeah, I really like "Soo", and I technically could pull the money out of savings.. but I don't think I should.  I think I'll just have to pass her up.  If I really decide on having a character to be Minette's older sister, then either I'll hunt for a "Soo" on the secondhand market, or find a different sculpt.  Maybe she will become available through Fairyland, or maybe even Luts will be able to continue selling Delfs, and if I still like her enough to get her, I can do it one day when I have more spare spending money.

Goodbye Soo, maybe we'll meet again one day.
