Maya teases him for his lack of social skills and common sense, but deep down she has a crush on him.
Comments: Ha...ha...ha....HAH HAH HAH!!!
I should lash myself for giving into this temptation! For those of you who have been reading my LiveJournal, I hope you aren't too disappointed in me. I have a feeling that Volks will eventually standardize Michael due to his immense popularity in Japan, but the more I looked at photos of Dark Michael the more I realized that if I didn't buy him and sell off lots of crap to pay off the charge, I would wither up from longing and DIE. I usually don't care for the Gothic look (I used to like it, but my interest faded over the years) but Dark Michael's face paint is actually quite natural. Volks went a lot easier on the blushing around the bridge of his nose this time, and his lips are lighter. I love him! I admit that when I first took him out of the box I was intimidated, because he looked like he hated me. ^_____^;...... But the next day, when I saw him sitting near my bed first thing in the morning, I was like "Where have you been all my life?"
I wasn't sure if I'd like his wig and outfit, but I think they're quite nice. The stockings are a pain, though! He has those new pale purple HG eyes--they're the only pair of purple eyes I own, and they're gorgeous. Yes, I know that Michael looks like a chick, but doesn't his face have a lovely symmetry? I think that he'd look nice as a woman, too, but I'm not going to humiliate him like that.
Kristen picked out his name, but I think she was reading my mind. It's true that this edition of Michael resembles a certain video game character whose name is Emilio, but if that's the only reason I bought him, that is PATHETIC.
