Haven't posted here for awhile! Real life has been hectic lately and I haven't had much time for my dolls. But I did manage to fit in a few pics recently.



Luca and Rowena

They're not a couple or anything, but both have troubled pasts and that gives them a sort of sympathy with each other.

I'm amazed at the number of pink wigs that I've managed to acquire--my original plan was to only get "natural" hair colors for my dolls, but now probably half of the wigs I have are in fantasy colors (pink, blue, green, turquoise, grey, etc). And what is really funny is that I used to hate pink with a passion! But it was my Gram's favorite color--she wore it all the time. After she passed away in 1999, anytime I see pink it reminds me of her. So now I quite like the color!

Kaj and Rowena. Their relationship is complicated.

Name: Graeme O'Neill
Nickname: Grey
Age: 14
Type: Blue Fairy Tiny Fairy Petit Marin Denis WS
Faceup: Default Blue Fairy
Eyes: forest green 16mm glass Luts
Hair: red
Orientation: Anywhere he damn well pleases
Likes: to be in charge, to have a say in things, financial dealings
Dislikes: the nouveau riche, having to attend a boarding school
Personality: Some people are so arrogant that they somehow manage to get away with it. Graeme is one of those people. But there is a tender side of him that he does not care to show very often.
History: Graeme has been attending The Sorrows since kindergarten. His family made a fortune during the Gilded Era in a variety of businesses, somehow always knowing where the next new market would be. He feels a lot of pressure to be able to do well and take over the financial empire once he is finished with his education.

Graeme (from the surname Grantham) means "gravelly homestead", O'Neill = "Descended from champions."

This is Graeme. He has issues. And today, we're going to fix some of them.

More about the project, plus many pics, beneath cut. )

Yes, Graeme is the sort to proclaim his awesomeness even while on display in his underwear on the internet. What a kid.

Took some time yesterday afternoon to work more on the new dolls.

There were a pair of light green urethane eyes that came in with the used WS Denis doll (I bought them from the same person). I meant them for him, but decided they'd work better with Josie and her super-blonde hair. They were PERFECT. I usually just get cheaper-end glass eyes for my dolls, as I don't like the way acrylic photographs, but these were stunning, even in the very bad light of my living room!



See what I mean?

More pics and chatter under the cut )

Yeah, amazing what changing a few small things can do!

That is the beauty of Asian ball-jointed dolls: you can customize their looks so much! I happen to like the default face-ups (that is, the way the face is painted) that Blue Fairy dolls have, but they can be wiped off and repainted.

Now, if I can just get my camera to do what I want! But that's another day's rant, and will go in my regular blog!

(Oh, and yes, I do plan on putting stories here eventually. But gotta get the new dolls settled in first!)
