Meet Georgiana Saltonstall, newest student to Our Lady of Sorrows! Georgiana (Georgie for short) is from one of Arkham's founding families. I don't know much about her character yet, but I'm sure that will come out in time, and never quite as I expect it.( A bouquet of Jasmines )
I happened to luck upon a reasonably priced (ie: the seller was in the US, didn't need to make back the custom fee, and sold me the full set at the original price) Limited G White Skin Jasmine a few weeks back. Debated a day about it, consulted with Bob, and then decided to buy her, because that was the original doll I had wanted when first looking at Blue Fairy. But it was a sold-out limited edition from 2009, so I didn't think I had much of a chance of getting one, and I certainly wasn't going to pay jacked-up prices for her!
The seller was an angel--didn't charge paypal fees, shipped right away, contacted me every day until she arrived, and even cared about what I was going to call her! The doll was in great condition, except I did have to restring her. She was so loose that she wouldn't even stand up. I cleaned her up (didn't need to do much) and wired her at the same time. Then I didn't have any time to take out my dolls last week at all!
Her eyes do not look green at all in person--they look quite grey! I was surprised when I saw the photos I took today that there was so much green. Georgie is not keeping the default look--I'm going more fantasy with her. Waiting on some eyes to arrive (blue and purple, should look stunning) and will put that with some purple/grey wigs I have. With the Beauty White skin, the look should be interesting. We'll see how it comes out.( Here's a pic of her in the color of wig I'm talking about. )
She's the first blossom body doll that I've bought, and I'm going to have to do some experimentation to see what clothes look best on her. I think Georgie will be a year or so older than the twins. I'm debating getting a gentle body for the next Blue Fairy boy I buy (whenever that will be). Probably a Kyle, unless a limited comes along that I want instead. Just not sure yet.
I think I mentioned before that I'm buying another second-hand doll (a WS Xiao boy) right now. That transaction hasn't been as smooth. I did get the price knocked down quite a bit, but the gal just put him in the mail TODAY, which was nearly two weeks after I paid for him. She did say she might take a few days, but there is a difference between three days and two weeks! I'm waiting to see what condition he's in. I know he'll have to have a face-up, and the gal I know in Madison may not be able to do it, so I'll have to shop around. Someone in the US for sure...I don't want to be mailing him overseas.
