This is Miz's Item Review! =] Every day, I will review, rate, mock, praise, sing, dance, and include general assholery relating to some random item! And remember, I'm human, and therefore biased. Don't expect me to be ultra fair, these are, after all, my opinions. Enjoy!
So, today is March 9th, and our random item is the Kottan Bell, a cute little bell with a few hidden friends.
The Kottan Bell is so cute and fuzzy. And ringy.

The Kottan Bell is cute little EI, full of fluff and springiness and all around cuteness. Now, while this one doesn't have nearly the same amount of poses that Inari's Beads does, it does have enough to merit more than one review. Four, to be exact, many I'll squeeze it into three. Anyway, today we are going to do the third and fourth stages of its evolution, so off we go.
Ok, just to start off, I had a crappy night. Sorry for such a delay, I'm doing today's review right now. Anyway, this is Pose A of the faerie series of Kottan bell. Companion item. Enormous companion item. Gray-white. Pale yellow. Light beige. So big.
Pose B now has her... skipping or something, seeming to hold your hand. So cute. This is actually balance-able, since she stands almost exactly the height of your avie. Of course, getting the colors to work is another story, but take a crack at it.
In Pose C she's flying fast or something. She's also a balance disaster, hanging out from over your shoulder like a looming predator. Have fun trying to make that stable.
I am Kottan Bell.
The Wig is of course the faerie's wig. It's a light gray and is somewhat stable-looking. The massive 80s-style ponytail protruding from the one side can be remidied with some big shoes or pants, so don't shy away from this if you like it.
The Eyes just show the love that Gaians have for heterochromatic eyes. The Gimpi has them too. Eyes items are fun but boring at the same time. Fun in that they are interesting, but boring in that they add little to an avie.
The Floral dress is the faerie's bil ol' pale yellow dress. But for you. It's sorta skimpy in leg coverage, mrawr, but otherwise fun with all the texture it brings. Make note of the black collar-like thing that it puts on you, by the way. It also happens to layer like a coat. Yay for layering!
The Gift is a swarm of flowers and petals. Guh. I hate these petal storm poses and items. So boring and so terribly, stereotypically animé'd. Sigh.
Finally, we have the Parasol, which is a single-posed hand item. And it just pops up over your head, very Mary Poppins-esque, and stops that sun from beating down on you. Gray-black and gray-white. Very big. Counterbalance accordingly.
Yay for evolving items. Let's get cracking on an avie.
