Hello again 🙂
This time there are some updates and things that changes over the past few weeks, what I did not tell you guys until now… I already did a 2018 plans post and it will kind of work with that.
So let’s start:
First of Names – this is something that can annoy me like nothing else – haha. A name that doesn’t fit or characteristics that doesn’t suit the Doll/ Character. In this case I am talking about the former Griselda – my dear dead Zombie Sugar Skull Girl.
When I got her I wanted her to be named with a beautiful Mexican name – I still think it is beautiful – but the story did not like it at all. So the Story decided to rename her. I had to think about thinks like when she died or when she was turned, what culture inviorment was she in and why did she die with only 9 years old – I will tell you someday. So she became Izel.
But before I always said she changed her name from Izel to Griselda at one Point in the Story, so I could still call her Zelda/Griselda – but why would she? There is no explanation or story I could find that would explain the name change. So she will be named like she is in the story and the name that her parents (or me) gave her matching to her history – so meet Izel. Izel means the Unique in Nahuatl, the language she grew up with before she died in 1453.
Another subject was that I really wanted a Sugar Skull painted doll, but that also does not fit the story or character of Izel – I still have to get used to this name. Currently she has no face up, she will get one soon hopefully, but it will be NOT a Sugar Skull inspired one… how sad! She lives in a little austrian village between normal humans and she can’t really stand out. So we will see how she will look like – maybe i can smuggle a little bit of colour in it 😉
Child Virus Versions
This is Birds fault !!! (not really a “fault” though)
She currently bought a child version of one of my favorite characters of her and I love the idea. I know she is not the first one who does this – but now I want child versions too… dammit. But hold on: only two children to be exact. A child Version of Marielle and Clarisse (profiles here), my two human girls.
Marielle is already home – she is a Iplehouse JID Soa – and for me the most fitting child version would be a Souldoll Sweeter Sevi . Clarisse will be, hopefully one day, a Racoondoll Emma and I really like the idea of a Iplehouse KID Paige as her little version. Clarisse will maybe a project for 2019…
But I did something xD
It really fit to both other topics, but I bought some dolls…
I bought Izels “sister”, also a Zombie Girl, named Anastasia and I bought little-Marielle. Two dolls? Not exactly.
Both will be from the Souldoll Sweeter line. Souldoll has currently a head event – they are discontinuing their Zenit Boy Body – and you can order a Sweeter head without a body. Little-Marielle and Anastasia will never be in the same picture, they are not ever in the same place when Marielle was little. So I thought to myself, why can’t they just share a body
for now ?
My inner self screamed at me:”Noooooo they need their own bodyyy!!”
But no – I already have two pair of characters, which share one body. So why not 3? So that is what I did and hopefully they will be home in summer.
Also my Viola Body will be home in maybe late February? Jess (aka Mokorran from SummerbirdBJD) unpacked the first patch of dolls – sadly not all of the milkey skin are here – and Haru from Harucasting hopefully will send the rest soon. I am really excited to have her here!! (Also she announced that there will be a second preorder later this year)
So this is all – thank you if you read until here it is way to long, but I really had to tell quite some new things…
