It's January the 5th and the first doll (or well...doll head) arrives! Couldn't ask for a better way to start the year ;)
Little new one is a SIO2 Taolu/Peach Deer. When this head was first released I was able to resist buying, but when I saw this head for sale 2nd hand with a slightly bloody face up...well, just fell in love!! >___<
This little one is still without a proper name- so for now she's been nicknamed 'Nurie'. She's also without a proper wig...and she has no body of her own, so for now she borrows an old yellowed DollsTown bod.
She travelled to me with ninja speed all the way from the holy land!
Her face up is very unique- and the artist has painted tiny 'cracks' on her skin. With her bloody nose, she almost reminds me of a character you'd see in a Trevor Brown painting.
I think SIO2 recommended eyes in a size 14mm for this sculpt? I found that Eyeco size 11mm fits her better! >__< Deciding on a colour was a bit tricky...I think I prefer the brown eyes tho.
SIO2 certificate came with a bookmark and a golden metal thingy?
My other girl, JunJun- a SIO2 Cold Dew- has a certificate that's a lot more basic. The newer SIO2 certificates are a lot more fancier.
Finding the right wig is always a bit of a nightmare when adopting a new dolly... This girl has a rather larger head which means I don't have a lot of wigs that will fit her in size. This lavender alpaca wig didn't go well with her skin tone..
....pink Leeke wig also seemed wrong for her skin tone...
...brown Leeke suits her all right...
...and brown alpaca without bangs also seems to work for her (but this wig belongs to my Volks boy)... I'm planning making a wig specially for her (black alpaca with bangs, I think).
~~** thread will be updated later on once I have figured out how to style her **~~
Finally finally finally finished the wig for Lior, my LLT Edria boy! Also managed to fix his face up....now he just needs proper eyes (Eyeco maybe? Or Masterpiece?) and hopefully someday I will also be able to buy him a body. For now he's on a BabelDoll display torso.
The LLT Edria sculpt looks amazing as a boy...imho, that is ._.
