It might look rather... awkward, to be honest. Maybe it's only me, though. I have Fairyland's anifee Vanilla, and she has no human ears either. This kind of a head demands a little bit of attention when it comes to choosing a wig. Vanilla can't really wear any wigs that reveal the place of her non-existent ears. For example, twin tails like Hatsune Miku's. It just looks weird, even with the cat ears on.

Hmm, I'm not sure where I went wrong in my calculations but it's looking like I'm going to be just short Y'shtola's final cost...

Not sure if I should scrounge some extra cash out of some old stuff I don't need anymore, or if I should just wait until next year and (hopefully) get her second-hand. Why couldn't she just be like the previous pre-order dolls... I'm suffering over here! I'd do anything to pay a deposit like the previous pre-order dolls lol

I have a feeling she's gonna be costly on the aftermarket. I think that Volks are only manufacturing enough to meet the preorders.

Most of the in-game hairstyles have bits of hair that conveniently cover over where the ears would be so I'm probably gonna try to do something similar with the wigs I use on Y'shtola.

And with a full prepay there will be no leftovers due to people defaulting on their payments.

The difference between Dollfie Dreams and Heroin? Heroin is illegal, Dollfie Dreams probably should be.

“Empty wallets, full hearts.” That’s probably an apt description for the effects of DD addiction

I finally pre-ordered her!  Shame you have to pay upfront from Volks (JP/NA) or SE Store.

Doesn’t everyone just throw it on plastic anyway?

I prefer to keep my dept as minimal as possible so I pay for dolls out of my available funds. Even if I pay with credit, I immediately pay it off. I am sure there are some do do similar. I cannot pre order her myself until my next paycheck because of this. :)

I do this as well. I put aside funds each month, and once I have saved up enough I buy something. I also waited until my paycheck for Y'shtola. Technically I had enough funds to buy her, but that would have dipped into money that I set aside for a different doll.

Hmm. I know the answer is unknowable and may come down to "strange, mysterious input from license holder", but why is the front of her dress (above the fur ruff) changed? The character has got a laced-up open part over the collarbone area as a prominent feature, on the DD version it's not there and there's solid cloth above the fur (which has accordingly been moved up a little higher on the bodice, I think).

It's interesting in light of the fact that the very similar laced up panel on the BACK of her dress is faithfully replicated and has attention drawn to it in the photos.

I think the panel is there (in a simplified form), it is just incredibly difficult to see on most shots.

If you look at these pictures you can see it a little bit: Tenshi blog post, and on Beani's pictures:

 

My guess is they simplified it because of either costs, physics, or both.
The lace-up part on her chest seems more delicate and may be difficult to faithfully reproduce on doll scale. Or it is possible but it is so delicate that it easily breaks. Or it is possible but the costs are too high. Or any combination of these.

Oh, you’re right, there it is! Thanks for the links. Yes I guess they just simplified a bit. It is kind of impressive that a combination of angles and fur has managed to hide that part from view in every sales pic.

I wonder if people would get Y'shtola faster from buying from Square Enix store or the Volks USA store? 🤔 

I'm assuming that folks ordering from Volks INT would always get their stuff faster.

I'm wondering that too. I decided to order her directly through Volks just in case there's any issue. I'd rather be able to go straight to them than having to possibly contact Square Enix support and wait for them to go through Volks for me.
