Awesome doll day for me today - no less than four packages had spent their Easter waiting to arrive at my house! yuhime
's Carol made it safe and sound, and has already gone through somewhat of a makeover. I've spray matted her (the can of MSC is my most valued tool as of lately, no one's safe..!) and also given her an extra row of eyelashes. I am not convinced about the eyelashes, though - they make her look even drowsier, don't they? She came re-wigged in Latte's stock wig, which is an awesome choice, but I've put LRRH's wig on her for now. It's a perfect fit for her eye chips and skin hue, but not so much for her eyebrows. We'll see.. (I giggled when I took off her wig, btw - cone head, much? Are all the rooted girls' scalp like that?) I've named her Kristin for now - partly because it's similar to the word Christmas (get it?), and partly because the only doll Kristin I know likes to give her girls eye brows like Carol has.
Besides Carol, my first Dal arrived! It's a Drta, customized quite a bit - new eye chips, new wig, and a 25cm obitsu. She gives "wobbly" a whole new meaning, btw - I will have to look into a way to strengthen that body of hers. Seems as some of it may be helped if I can do something about her neck peg, but the torso keeps popping out of her hips too, so it's not just the head.. Carol stole the outfit I had planned for her, so I will have to go through the other tiny obitsu dolls to at least find her a pair of decent shoes. Right now she's wearing a pair of plastic Barbie sneakers.. I'm not convinced about her t-shirt either, but the jeans are perfect! Who would've known that I would praise Bratz, huh? ;) She was named Chicklet by her previous owner, and I am most probably keeping it - at least as a nickname. With my own nick being birdie - offline too - the coincidence was just too funny. Don't tell anyone that it's the same reasoning I am using to defend a future purchase of Tweety. ;)
The two other packages held a Little Pullip (Leprotto, I want to get all the animal dressed ones), and from JunkySpot: a basic Hujoo (soo small!!) and two obitsus - one for Haute NY and one spare for now. I haven't done anything with the Hujoo except for spray matting her face and upper body (I told you I like that MSC!), and dressing her. The eyes I had in mind for her have been given my custom Nomado head, and it turned out I didn't have any wigs that fit her. She won't be finished until next month, because my doll budget is spent and then some. The sales post at DM / elsewhere isn't exactly taking off, so not much help there.. The Hujoo's only hope is that the pending buyer makes up her mind to actually get the items she's requested - this means that I will get enough funds in my Paypal for a cheap fur wig and a pair of eyes. Cross your fingers for her! ;) Name? She's getting a chocolate coloured "twin" soon, in case that counts (like my two Liccas, who are Crystal and Pepper...).
