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:
My Volks DWC#2 has arrived and she has a body!
Her head arrived on the beginning of last week and her body arrived in the end the week and despite the customs problem everything went well in the end. She is on a Volks SD13 body I got from the DoA Marketplace short after your feedbacks that I should try to get a Volks body instead of the hybrid body and see if I like it. And here it is! I think she is perfect!
So meet my new girl: Isadora!
I am still getting to know her, hope to tell you more about her soon 🙂
Sorry for the crappy pictures, but the light has been awful! If you want to know more please check out the video I made when she got home:
First of all I want to show you how Padma looks now. Since I got her I wanted to give her a new hair-do and accessories to make her more her character. Padma is a Dorani (Nomad) and her people is inspired by Gypsy and Indian culture.
I have worked on her a couple of weeks ago but I still hadn’t had the opportunity to take some pictures of her finished look. I gave her a couple of thin braid with some accessories and also two gold piercings (a nose and a sign on her forehead) and I think she looks so perfect now! Completely as I envisioned her 🙂
In other news though I have been on quite a doll buying phase of totally unplanned dolls. So there will be 3 new additions to my family soon. Ooops 😉 I actually got a small bonus this month and I ended spending it on dolls…but I guess it is justifiable if they make you happy, right?
The first one was a BJD British Cat from ElleoDolls on Etsy. I have been wanting a cat BJD for so long and I finally placed an order for this beauty! I wanted a “chubby” cat, not the usual siamese/asian style cats you see a lot, and I found this one so I was really happy, I could not NOT order it! I hope it doesn’t take long to get it home, they say it takes 6-8 weeks 🙂

The second one is the sweet Iplehouse KID Irene. I have been admiring the Iplehouse KID dolls for a while now and I have always loved Irene but I never had a reason to get one myself. I suddenly had an epiphany last week that she would actually be perfect for a character from Edenia. It’s not like it is a main character but she is a special one for me and she has a clear story in my mind so I thought it would be good to have her in doll form. Also I couldn’t resist Irene’s cuteness any longer and this was the perfect excuse to get her… so she is on layaway now in Peach Skin (I miss their PS resin) and with the type C face-up (in the picture), along with some clothes, shoes, a wig and eyes (as if it were a fullset) taking advantage of Iple’s current discounts 🙂 It will take long but I can’t wait for her to be home!

And finally the most unexpected and surprising of all my purchases: She is a Volks DWC#2 head and was for sale in the MP on DoA and I couldn’t resist! She is soooo amazing! OMG I can’t believe I actually got this beauty!
I had been wanting a Volks Doll for such a long time, especially after I met WennieBJD’s Bailey in person! I hope to make an hybrid out of this girl but since she was completely unplanned I don’t know what I am going to do or who she will be. Any suggestions for nice bodies for Volks SD hybrids? I know the Feeple60 body works really well and maybe the MaskatDoll Body or the AprilStory body… any other options?

Hey there everyone!!!
I am sorry I have been posting so few lately, I have been busy and it is hard to keep up with everything!
As you may know, I recently went to LDoll 2014, the BJD convention that happens every year in Lyon, and for me it became a “must” in the BJD hobby. This year was so amazing, I had such a wonderful time and I even had a really special Surprise! I got to see some of my Italian doll friends again, that I didn’t see since I came to Germany, and I also got to meet Wendy (WennieBJD) again. Floriana (HarajukuDolls) was there and she had an amazing Stand and also another couple of friends of mine had a Stand with some awesome stuff, called the Dark Wood (they are really worth checking out, they make clothes, props and furniture for BJD).
As usual I participated in the LDoll lottery (not expecting to win anything like the previous years), and guess what? I WON FIRST PRIZE!!! Soom was the guest of honor this year so first prize was an amazing limited one of a kind Soom Amber!
Here is a picture of her (you can find more on my Flickr):
She is also a fullset with the default face-up and complete body blushing and complete fantasy parts! I was soooo over the moon and overwhelmed with her, she was so unexpected and she is so huge and heavy and delicate at the same time! But she is also so impressive and beautiful! For now she is still nameless, but I have a concept for her already, she is going to be a Moon Goddess. I hope to let you know more abou her soon 🙂
I also bought another doll: Her name is Anastasia, Anja for short, and she is a Dollmore Alex Doll Alexia LE10 Daudet’s Star (Fullset), and I totally fell in love with her vintage doll look!
