Deliriously excited that I've acquired another Elfdoll RuRu!--well, just her head at this point, but nonetheless a portion of her!!!!!! Waiting on her body, and my nose will be pressed to the front window because I just received notification that it shipped!!!!!!!!!!! I've been waiting 2 months. Can't wait til she's a whole being.
I wiped her paint, and tried to determine if I wanted her to be soft or edgy. Since my first RuRu, Deepika Sheherazade, was soft, I decided to make Shalimar the edgy sister. Here are some of her first pictures--wearing a few wigs that I'm hoping to sell. (My dolls really earn their keep.)

What's a doll to do when she's the only one of her kind left in a collection? Why, enjoy herself immensely being completed spoiled--that's what! Perk Colette is my only Fashion Royalty doll left. Dressing her tonight in these two gorgeous gowns that I received as a gift brought back many a regret of a sold doll or two, or three, but alas, she was one of my favorites and I'm glad I chose to keep her.
Here are two beautiful gowns ,by the fabulous Kevin Kilmer, that my dear friend, Ginny, blessed me with! SO beautiful!
I decided tonight that I'm going to name her "Maria." For some reason, I keep thinking of West Side Story when I look at her.

I go through phases where I obsess over a color. Right now, it's a coral-melon color I'm obsessing over. HAD to have this gown by Viva La Posh. The color was right on. The style is very neo- classical to me and I'm quite enthralled with this time period. Very pretty gown! I was so thrilled when it arrived today that I had to pull out my art nouveau components and I set to work making her earrings, a necklace and a ring to match. I think they really compliment the gown. Modeling is Jonna, a Madame Alexander Paris by Jon Copeland. I thought the palette of her repaint would really compliment the gown. I probably should have chosen some Pre-Raphaelite looking creature, but Jonna looks lovely in it. Maybe later on, I'll take some Alma Tadema looking images.
Testing out my new studio lights that just arrived, and my new floor (by Raw*Kiss.) Happy day!
