Best time yet at the doll meet :)

Although one of us overindulged on milkshakes. Somebody brought miniature margarita glasses, and the dolls had quite a party on one of the tables. Celeste flopped back, and her wig flew off. It was just too good of an opportunity to miss.

Here they are at home, gathered together for storytime.

We are going to have to do something about the big girls’ wigs, which keep slip-slidin’ away. Here is a close-up of the three of them. Blessing looks just stunned to have a little sister in her lap.

Rorek made three new shirts for Faith, and a little denim jumper. But those will have to wait for another day. It’s naptime for Ms. Ravelled.

Dolly bits are in customs?

Or possibly have cleared customs. So maybe they will arrive at Nekokoi’s work today? And if not today, then Monday. Woohoo! No more bald, blind dolly!

I need to finish Celeste’s sweater so that I can start one for Faith. I am almost done with the waist ribbing and will then get to engineer sufficient room for her [ahem!] abundance.

But first I need to go work out, so that my brain will work.

Stealth Dolly!

Faith is here, a month sooner than I had expected her. Nekokoi texted me at work to say we had a mystery box from SOOM. No drama, no announcement, just a box with three dolls in it, each of them in perfect condition and with no missing parts.

I am much mollified, sufficiently so that I went to SOOM’s website a few minutes ago and checked out the new monthly doll. I like the faun ears much better on the teenies than on Amber herself. And the little stubby antlers are so cute. But no, not tempted. The next doll will probably be my DOB HoHo/Arie, to be known as Hope. And Charity will probably be DOB’s Libra; her little face reminds me so much of Rorek’s when she was a child.

I have Faith’s human head on her body, here at home, so I can make her something suitable to wear. Nekokoi has the hoofie bits and the uni-baby face. We will probably be ordering eyes and wigs tonight and finalizing which colors I want for her faceup and body blushing. I may even spring for undies for my three girls. Blessing is a little tired of going commando. Celeste doesn’t seem to mind in the slightest; she is flopped down on the couch waiting for me to finish her sweater, and every time I look, her skirt seems to have hiked up a bit higher. I have no idea what kind of personality or behaviors Faith will reveal. I would like to encourage modesty all around.

We now return you to your regularly scheduled knitting...
