As you probably know I have been thinking about getting a SD boy for quite a while to shell the missing character of my SD Story “The Travellers”, however until now something else always comes in the way …hehe
I have been looking at new possibilities for sculpts now that I have a better idea of him and his character and I decided to make a sort of wishlist to share with you guys 🙂
These boys are quite different but I guess it will depend on the direction the character takes, however I see in them something of him and I love the sculpts!!! ❤
For now the ones inspiring me the most are Dreaming Doll Khan and Ringdoll Lucifer, but since I am not getting him immeadiately I guess that it still can change a bit 😉
Who is your favorite? Any owners of any of them are also welcome to leave a comment with your opinions 😀
Also I just wanted to let you know that I haven't been having much time for dolls lately. I am going to be a bit away for the next couple of weeks because of some big changes going on in my life, but I will be back soon 🙂
Meanwhile I leave you with a sweet picture of Lusine (more on my Flickr) to keep you company. This girl just makes me happy, I feel so lucky to have her ❤
Anouk and Padma are cousins and are really close.
Anouk is currentely 12-13 years old and is the only daughter of the younger sister of Padma’s mother, who left the Dorani camp to marry a Citizen (an outsider) and therefore cut all relationship with her family. There is a lot of prejudice between the Dorani (the Nomads) and the Citizens and therefore their marriage was really polemic. When her mother died during the birth of her second child who was a stillborn, Anouk’s father didn’t know what to do with her, since there was so much prejudice against her being of a mixed marriage that he brought her to Padma’s family hoping for a better future for her. She was 10 and that is how she came to live at the camp.
Padma immediately liked the little girl and seeing that she also was blessed by the Healing talent made her decide to take her as her ward and tech her the knowledge of the family. Anouk started helping Padma out during her rounds and her travels, making medicines and curing patients.
Anouk is still getting used to living with the Dorani, and though she really feels at home she still has a lot from her years living in the City. She is a shy sweet girl and therefore also hard to notice. But Padma protects and loves her as if she was her real sister.
My beautiful Padma had some decent light camera time! Finally 😀
I have decided to start writing more about my characters and present them to you.
I started with Padma and Anouk (because since she arrived I have taken some photos with her that I want to share).
So let’s talk about Padma:
Guess who arrived this Friday? My Iplehouse KID Irene 🙂
She is such an amazing doll!!! Her name is Anouk Darzim and she is Padma’s younger cousin, about 12-13 years old. She is in Peach Gold Skin and has the default Iplehouse face-up (which is perfect). She came withe her clothes and eyes from Iplehouse (in the pictures) and also a pair of boots, pretty much like a fullset 🙂 And I couldn’t be happier!!! I was really nervous since there have been some stories about Iple dolls and clothes with serious problems lately, but I must say I am pleasantly surprised at how amazing this doll is and the quality of everything she came with!
She got home yesterday evening, but I only could open her really late so I didn’t really make a BO video as planned, but I made a video today showing the stuff she came with and telling a bit more about her, that you can find here:
More on her soon!
It has been quite a while since I posted anything and since I had any time for dolls… I am sorry that I haven’t been commenting much, I just wanted to let you know I keep following everyone’s pictures and videos.
As for news, I got my Minifee Nanuri 2014 head and I love her!!! However I didn’t even have time to take pictures of her I just cleaned her face-up off to send her to the face-up artist. I’ll have her and my little Lusine (Dust of Doll Meel) painted by the amazing Luna from La Coterie della Lune! I am super excited: can’t wait to have them back 😀
In other news Arya is looking quite different! First she got a new wig recently, that I haven’t showed yet. It’s a gorgeous Alpaca wig commission from KagamiDesign on Etsy (that I totally recommend). I had been wanting a wig like this for a while and finally Arya looks like herself. This is her natural hair, wavy and a bit “puffy”, however when she lived in Eden (before she run away) she used to wear it straight and longer, and her maids spent hours making it look “perfect”.
Here she is also wearing my latest commission from HarajukuDolls, which is in reality Padma’s outfit (hence the title). But it was so gorgeous I couldn’t resist dressing Arya with it. I think she looks amazing, can’t wait to try it on Padma when I have her with me again…(hopefully in the beginning of October)! As usual I totally adore Flo’s work: she is so talented ❤ And she has been nominated the official seamstress of Edenia!!!
More pictures, because she is gorgeous:
